Nokia highlights some breathtaking photos captured by Lumia Windows Phones

Lumia 1020

Nokia has kept the camera in its Windows Phone at the forefront of its marketing campaign since joining Microsoft's resolve back in 2011. The Lumia 1020 is the latest addition to the Lumia family of smartphones and sports the most advanced optics on any mobile phone available today. We've already seen sample shots from both ourselves and Nokia, but what about general consumers? Nokia has highlighted some beautiful shots on their blog.

Collage is a technique that can be used on a Nokia Windows Phone to create some interesting results. These shots were taken from the Facebook group, Nothing but a Nokia. The Nokia post and Facebook group are both well worth checking out. Some of the photos published by Lumia owners are superb.

I've taken some beautiful photos with my Nokia 920

Beautiful but not sharp.

I've gotten some extremely good (beautiful + sharp) results with my Lumia 920: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjFNF59x

NH3MAN says:

Yes, You certainly have.  Lovely, sharp, shots, many low light that I am envious of.

Bnlf says:

why i can´t do half of this beauty with the same hardware? i must be a horrible photographer

WNxAshik says:

How did you get it that sharp?

Nesdam1981 says:

Low ISO, long shutter and a very steady hand (or tripod attachement).
You need a 3rd party camera app like proshot or oneshot or Nokia Pro Cam in GDR2 so you can set the shutter speed. Low ISO results in sharper images but needs long shutter to letthe light in (in low light situations). Tip is to always use manual ISO for best sharpness.

manilabeans says:

Wow! Awesome shots. How did you get your pictures to be that sharp? Also, did you do any  post processing on any of your pics? I'm not too good at photography so I usually just go full auto on my 925. Any tips you can throw my way? I'd be very happy if I could get my pictures even just half as sharp as those. (Or is the 925 really just far outclassed by the 920?)

Proud to be part of the Lumia family!

Nice.. Really awesome

Here's an article I wrote about the 1020 with a photo I took with it.  LOVE this phone. 

redeyss says:

Wow, nice shots and write up!!;)

Proud 820 user here :D

Those are all gorgeous! I have gotten some of the most beautiful shots ever with my 920.

Back in July, I used my 521 to snap some really nice pics of fireworks. Even got some video. Works pretty well for no flash.

Chesterone says:

L820 Just Great.


NIST says:

I've taken some amazing shots with my 1020.

wpguy says:

I've gotten complements on photos taken with my 925. Some of my best ones are accidents, taken while playing with different settings.

Haha same here! On my 928 that is.

L920 - 3 Weeks in Scotland during the X-mas and New Year holidays. Helped me capture some great memories in an otherwise challenging photographic environment.

ogracia says:

I have a modest lumia 620 and i am fucking proud of the pics it takes http://instagram.com/ogracia72#

Coolaaron88 says:

This would be a great time to break out Phototastic for Collage photos :D

dhruv07 says:

Nw thts my daily job of capturing moments!! With L720

woodbane says:

Anyone got any tips for the 820? Just got one here and am finding pictures a bit soft.

ruisolid says:

I make some miracles with Lumia 820
That's my Flickr gallery
I use both SophieLens PRO, ProShot for night pictures and Native Camera.
If you use ProShot, you can use Shutter Speed around 1 and ISO 400 for night shots.
In Native camera you can alternate the Exposure.

ruisolid says:

Happy to be a Brazilian Cyan Nokia Lumia 820 user.

demonp82 says:

My L920 can't make nice photos. I could make better ones on my iPhone 3gs. It blures and smudges the hell out of my photos. And as noisy as hell. I know there is a topic for it here, but no solution yet :((((. But it is nice to see some beautiful pictures here :)))

ladydias says:

Check you settings, especially your ISO. I switch between the default camera and proshot (which is worth every cent btw).

demonp82 says:

I use Nokia Pro Cam on default settings. 

nlm says:

Same results for a buddy of mine. Guess what the problem was: he never took off the clear plastic strip on the camera lens when it came out of the box. The strip is so small and clear its easy to miss.

marcodci says:

My L925 take amazing photos and my previous L820 too.

JoRdaNeK says:

My 720 has allowed me some excellent shots, but for the life of me i cant find a self timer?? Help?

ruisolid says:

Today, only 3rd party apps do it.
I recomend ProShot.
Or a Free Option like Fhotoroom

Deaconclgi says:

Here is a link to some of the shots that I have achieved.

ladydias says:

Been taking massive number of family pics with my 920. The other family members have android phone but they all admit that my phone takes the best pics and when I tell them about some of the WP exclusive photo apps they sigh because the android marketplace doesn't have the same apps. Love these phones. ^_^

Very happy with having lumia and also my friend is when he wants a picture when there's little light (and he has an iphone5!)- ALWAYS asks me to take the picture and then whatsapp it him lol

jer85008 says:

I've only had my 928 for a couple days, but I've already had a few "holy crap" moments with the camera. Wow!

louser says:

My brother is jealous of my 925 camera, I've taken some amazing pics and I have no idea what im doing. Guess I should learn what all the settings do. He's an isheep BTW!

Acbuono5 says:

Awesome pictures! And keep them coming!

Th3 I3LooD says:

You guys and your WP 8 phones! Phe... I'm still rocking the very first Nokia Windows Phone ever and I have taken pictures that match the best of what I have seen here (ok maybe not quite) LMAO! But still, I have been impressed by my trusty old L800 and its imaging... Man I can't wait to upgrade to a Shweeet new Lumia WP8 come December!! Just can't decide which one to get!
