Photography with Nokia Lumia 1020

Hi all!

Let's post our images or links to our galleries of shots taken with the Nokia Lumia 1020.

Thought it'd be nice to have a dedicated thread to show off what the Lumia 1020's camera can do

That's fast! Within a couple of days
Not uploading on Flickr? There's 1TB of storage there, as compared to the 7GB base storage for SkyDrive

Great Idea guys!

Roughly what is the estimated File Size per 38MP picture?
Do you actually go home and "Photoshop" the 38MP file to make it better and then "crop" and downsize again?
If so, what desktop programs are you using?

34MP + 5MP is around 10 megabyte each.

No... I don't use photoshop unless I want to adjust things like contrast, brightness. Cropping from the phone is sharper and less work

@LastBattle: I've got 128GB of storage, I'd rather have everything in one place too haha xD

@Rickosw: From what I see they're about 7-10 MB per high res photo. When the shot is taken a smaller 5MP photo is saved as well. The 5MPs make up the root folder of my albums and the high res is in the separate folder. No Photoshop or any programs were used

I recommend Windows Live Photo Gallery (part of Windows Essential 2012).

Windows Essentials - Download Windows Live Essentials

Very user friendly. ALL essential photo editing & management functions supported. Can be extended to Photosync & Image Composite Editor. Has Photo Fuse & Auto-panorama.

Very nice & very fast!

@E_T my Facebook friends are commenting the Lumia 1020's camera is wasted on me, and I think I agree lol. I've no idea what to set for the ISO and the shutter speed.

Take this one for example: http://sdrv.ms/16D7OhW
If I'm not wrong this shot was taken with all settings at Auto, which results in a really bright photo of a low-light environment. But what if I don't want it to be bright and what I'm actually seeing? >.<

I so need to take a photography class.

Edit: Also if I'm in a moving car and taking a photo what settings should I use? Like a sports shot?

I really feel like doing macro photography after seeing shots taken. Too much of scenic shots, kinda tired of them. hahahaha...

For sport shots, I use Blink app for that with burst shots. its low rez though and requires decent lighting.

If manual, you need high shutter speed at least 1/30. The higher the shutter speed the less light it will allow the lens to take in so pictures may tend to be darker (depends on lighting again)

If you need more light, adjust exposure higher or adjust iso. Usually bright days require 100-200 iso, 400 if indoors, 800 and above if dark. Of course the higher the iso, the grainier the photo gets. 400 should be ok. So moving object using manual, try 1/100 shutter with 400 iso. There's also flash but I prefer not to use it if I want more natural look. Just play ard with the settings and try on none moving objects 1st then move on to motion once you're more familiar or confident. This is just my own opinion and I'm not a professional photographer - just based on my dslr use + Lumia phone of course

LOL! The easiest way is to use WP camera app & set the scene mode to Sports. Flash to Auto.

For Pro Cam:

In good light, manual setting, ISO 400, shutter speed 1/1000, no flash.

In low light, manual setting, ISO 800 (or 1600), shutter speed 1/250, forced flash on.

These are ballpark figures. It also depends on lighting condition.

The BLINK app isn't optimized for the 1020 yet, it produces horrible grainy photo even in daylight.
I don't see any problem with any other third party app, they are probably using a private API

It takes some time to get used to. In the first few weeks when I first had it, its a hit and miss. It just gets better and better over time, and I always have the urge to take photos now probably because of confidence that it'll be a good shot. Such as low light conditions that are impossible for galaxy, iphones..

If you upload that on Flickr, I can probably tell you what's wrong (or E_T that's better!)
I need the EXIF info..

This is SICK!!!! I can't even get this on my Olympus EP1 with kit-lens. Probably have to buy Macro conversion.
