Ahead of Thursday's Lumia 1020 reveal, Nokia launches dedicated mobile photography site

Nokia camera site

Nokia is set to unveil their latest mobile photography addition to their Lumia line, the Lumia 1020, this Thursday, that hasn’t stopped them from launching a new website dedicated to cameras.

Heading to www.nokia.com/global/experience/photography/ users will be treated to news, tips and tricks for taking better photos. While the current focus is on the Lumia 9xx line, including the Lumia 920, 925 and 928, we’re pretty sure Nokia will update the site with “1020” info as well as soon as that device goes live.

The site itself is nicely laid out with bold, clear stories, presented in a standard blog format and it should serve as a valuable tool for those looking to hone their photography skills, especially with the pros and cons of mobile usage.

Nokia certainly looks to be defining themselves as the kings of mobile photography, which we think is a good thing. After all, while Samsung, Apple and even HTC occasionally make some interesting innovations in the field, that title is not only up for grabs but looks to be Nokia's for the keeping.

Stay tuned to Windows Phone Central as we’ll be covering the launch event for the Lumia 1020 all day Thursday.

Ahead of Thursday's Lumia 1020 reveal, Nokia launches dedicated mobile photography site

I would bet 1020, if it carries the Lumia tag. A model number higher than any other Lumia suggests that it more advanced than the others.

I have a question, there's been reviews of the L925 camera against the GS4 and apparently, GS4 at most comes out with better pics. Now could this be associated with the 1080p screen of the GS4? Frankly I'm a little saddened by these reviews. So what's going on?

I truly hope coming updates will fix. I still though trust my L920. But I honestly think part of it is the 1080p screen on the GS4 has to do something with it.

Galaxy S4 is GREAT under one condition: Outdoors and sunny.
Lumia 925 and 920 are decent in all conditions, thus all rounders.
^ This and the Galaxy S4 screen. 

If the reviewers are only judging photos by how they look on the two smartphone displays, then the review is worthless and the reviewers incompetent. Differences between the two display's color, brightness, contrast, resolution and the software used to view them, will make photos look very different. The results will reflect nothing but the reviewer's preferences in display tech instead of photo quality. If photographs from both devices were not evaluated side by side on the same monitor, then you need to find a better review site.

Point taken. It makes sense. So all in all display does have something to do with better sharpness on the GS4 and One. Now what if all three shared each others photo?

Sadly reviewers are for the most part forgetting to mention that in bright sunny day photos the GS4 will have more detailed pics due to having a 13 Mp camera... Most judging is done when the pics are loaded to a pc so you can judge colour properly. Its the same reason the HTC One is near the 920 on camera but because its only 4 Mp it just can't get the detail even if it does get the brightness. Most reviewers still would acknolage the 920 as having a better low light shot (few idiots in there leave the flash on so say its just like any other mobile camera or worse) but yea sunny day with an anyway decent camera with decent colour higher mp is better... DSLR's disprove this obviasly but we are compairing like with like... you compair DSLR's to DSLRs and phone sensors with phone sensors...
I'm pretty sure if Nokia went to Canon and said: "hey can we scale up this 41 Mp sensor so its about 2" by 3" and slap it in a Pro DSLR that you make?" I think they would, I think it would also be one of the best cameras ever made....

Coming from guy who's had iPhone 5's, GS3, GS4, Note 2.... All these phones have "in my opinion", better quality pictures than my l920. The reason for this is nokias image software. Yes they look good on the phone, but once transferred to a bigger screen you can tell the difference. Even with the iPhone 4s you could see the clarity and sharpness of the image... Something not present on my l920.

Ok, so you did some comparing. There is issue with nokia's software. What about the hardware? Could we take any optics and slap Carl Zeis on it? Just a good hardware and we'll be fine?
