We talk imaging with Nokia’s Juha Alakarhu and get a hands-on with Nokia’s new Refocus app

65

Over the past year we’ve had a handful of chances to sit down with Nokia’s Juha Alakarhu. He is Nokia’s camera guru and is one of a handful of individuals responsible for Nokia’s dominance in mobile photography. We first saw him at CES last year where we learned about the future of optical zoom on mobile cameras and saw his Frankenstein 808 PureView.

We just had a chance to sit down with him again here at Nokia World 2013. We saw Nokia’s new app called Refocus, learned about RAW support for Lumia devices, and how Nokia Black is going to make your current smartphone better at pictures.

This morning, Nokia finally pulled the wraps off of the Lumia 1520, a device with a massive 6-inch 1080P display. But besides the great display, the Lumia 1520 also features an outstanding PureView camera with a 20 MP sensor. In addition, the algorithms for the camera app have been improved for better noise reduction, tone mapping and oversampling when compared to older Lumias.

Hands on with the Nokia Lumia 2520 keyboard case

Announced today alongside the Nokia Lumia 2520 at Nokia World 2013, is this, the companion keyboard case. Nokia didn't go down the touch-cover style route with the 2520, instead opting to produce a full tactile keyboard with gesture trackpad. It's also a case, protecting the tablet front and back, and it's got some additional juice via the on-board battery, that Nokia claims is good for an extra 5 hours battery life for the tablet. And round the back, there's not one but two USB ports.
