fuego6: Oh Nokia.. windows 8 was truly the killer for ya.. if only Android.. you would be #1 phone!

Not so...

The overdue trusting in that people would prefere Symbian phones over iOS was the killer for Nokia. The ship was already sinking when they choose to switch to Windows Phone.

If Nokia would have gone Android... They would have been as dead in the waters as Ericsson was. Remember them? Big Swedish quality phone maker who also hang on to Symbian for to long! Now Sony have bought them!

dark goob: I guess you guys couldn't get your hands on a 5S. It would be nice to see a more unbiased comparison. Many of us are satisfied with 8MP for a phone. The speed of rapid-fire and length of bursts on the 5S is really nice. I'm not sure I could live with a 4-second shot recovery time like on the Nokia.

@dark goob

If you cant stand the 4-second wait then please use any of the other 200 Phone apps available for Windows Phone which takes Pictures with much higher speed. Try to uses Nokias Smart cam app - 10Pics/sec!

jcmarfilph: So why no iPhone 5s? It would have been nice to see it being stomped by these cameras.

And FWIW, the nokia night shot is obviously blurry so to include it in the comparison is useless. ISOs should have been fixed to one value for a fair comparison.

You sound desperate to find something to defend the iPhone 5s with. And when you finally found the slow performance of the Nokia Pro camera app you thought you got it... :-) fail!

You should read up... WP has the option of changing camera apps from within the camera. That means that if speed is your most important feature then please use the smart camre app (10 frames/sec) or the built in stock camera app in WP8. Both which give you much better speed than the Nokia Pro app!

As for the apps... It's getting old to hear how WP8 has no apps. Its just not true! Apps on WP are smarter! Example:

Instagram has no officiall app for WP8 yet... but we have a ton of third party alternatives. The best one called 6tag, lets you pin your favorite persons Instagram feeds to live tiles on the front! No need to open Instagram to se the latest Pictures from your best friends - their Pictures appear live on your starta screen in Live Tiles. Hows that for an " crappy Windows OS Phone"? :-)

makofoto: ?! Where's the iPhone 5s

@ rockjano

All Nokia phones have a camera app built in called smart Camera. This app on the high end Lumias captures Pictures att 10pic/sec also. So iPhone 5s is again just copying the rest...

CyberAngel: 3840x2160 = UHD is enough for pictures = 8.3 Mpx
Yes, the sensor could be 1/2.3"

Optical Image stabilization is new tech
now Apple looks old :-(
LG G2 and HTC One has OIS already and more is coming..

Pro Camera software in the Lumia 1020 with manual controls and real-time feedback is something that Apple should do.

When we lost Jobs - we lost the innovation :-(
Have to wait another year to see if Apple can catch up on anything...

Good luck on the waiting...

Meanwhile Nokia releases new phones every second month now. And Android releases new phones every second week!

iPhone just have no chance of getting back in the Tech race if they keep on releasing phones once a year...

HarrieD7000: Apple never asked a costumer what they should put in a phone. It is still the most sold phone when looking for the model. And that is for each and every model from Apple. I don't think an other camera will change that. And within one month we can see what the new iPhone does in sales figures. We can see if there is an other phone model with all the called specs, that even comes close to this figures.

Yeah, People in New York already the day Before the announcement lined up to get the new whateverPhone... :-)

Realise that many buy iPhone becuse its a safe bet. It works and you get a lots of apps. Apple just need to change colors on the Phones every year now and raise the modelnumber (iPhone6, Iphone 7...) and it will sell.

Wheter that makes it the best Phone... is a completely different matter :-)

JConrad: You can look at all the marketing speak around 'ultra-pixels' and the like, but aside from the Lumia 1020's PureView (which is really excellent), and maybe the Xperia Z1 (barely), none of the newer hardware, on either the Android side or Windows Phone side are actually better than the iPhone 5's camera.

Rumors are pointing to an f/2.0 lens, so that'll be nice...I'd like to see a slightly larger sensor and a little more robust camera app. Otherwise, I'm pretty happy with the 5's camera. I don't use it for serious photography, but it's nice in a pinch when I just need a snapshot.

I beg to disagree!

After taking a lot of shots with my Lumia 920 alongside friends with iPhone5, there is no way that it can compare! Both tak day shots ok, but the important night shots out with friends and partying make a World of difference. When people compare my shots to the friends iPhone5 shots in the bar - everyone starts asking about the Phone with the great camera - and they are not talking about the iPhone! :-)

Puddleglum: Please no more megapixels. Bigger files with no real world value.

No value...

So the "zoom" feature in Lumia 1020 has no real value... :-)

Strange becuase when you show that to ordinary people they find it very valuable and want to go buy the Phone with 41 Mpixel!

nellydesign: I wish I could open the camera from the lock screen, take a picture, and then send it to someone without having to go back to the home screen and open photos. If you go to the camera app from the home screen this can be done, but not from the lock screen.

You know that you just described how it works on a Windows Phone... right?

Really, if you are serious about photos... its time to leave Apples Instagram cameras behind and get a great mobile camera from Nokia!

techmine: At $299 this is the costliest phone on the market. 2 humps - price and wm8. Surely it will be 199 or lower soon. Why not lure everyone from the beginning? I like the camera but can't dare to go back to Windows mobile again. Happy with android and galaxy cameras.

@ techmine

And with this statement:

"WM or WP, It's the same garbage."

you have clearly disqualified yourself from any comments regarding Microsoft products!
Can you please explain how a phone running Windows Mobile on Windows CE as the kernel is the same as a phone running Windows Phone on a Windows 8 kernel?

It's not even close… :-)
