Lumia 1020

The Nokia Lumia 1020 is notable for its camera. It has a 41-megapixel image sensor with Carl Zeiss optics, optical image stabilization, xenon flash, advanced controls with the Nokia Camera, and even RAW format support. If you’re into cameraphones, it’s probably the device currently in your hand. Last Tuesday, Samsung announced the Galaxy K Zoom, another noteworthy cameraphone. Are Lumia 1020 users interested?

The Android-powered Samsung Galaxy K Zoom sports a 20.7 megapixel 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor, 10x optical zoom (24-240mm equivalent), optical image stabilization, and Xenon flash. One of the main concerns with the Samsung Galaxy K Zoom is its size, coming in at 20.2mm thick.

Over at the forums, BlackZeppelin voices out the Galaxy K Zoom looks mighty impressive, but understands that the Lumia 1020 approaches the idea of zoom in a different way.

The Samsung is almost 21mp rear camera but of course it uses optical zoom for cropping resolution. The 1020 uses oversampling in a 41mp sensor to achieve cropping resolution, so completely different approaches.

BlackZeppelin is asking if you think the Galaxy K Zoom trounces the Nokia Lumia 1020. Are Lumia 1020 users also curious with the new cameraphone? Head over to the forums to let him/her know what you think.
