Nokia's Lumia 920 PureView camera shows off Vienna at night

We're already aware of just how effective the camera on the Lumia 920 is, but here are some shots taken by Fabian Pimminger in Vienna, Austria. Yes, they look that good. Now we understand that a fairly expensive camera will take just as good (if not better) shots, but we're talking about a Windows Phone here. You know, a device that you use for making calls and playing some Angry Birds when work becomes rather boring.

We're glad Fabian decided to share his awesome snaps with the rest of the world. Here are a few more:

Be sure to head on over to Fabian's collection of shots for more eye candy. With all the magic Nokia is creating with its optics technology, we're getting rather excited about the upcoming EOS Windows Phone.

  • Great pictures. Do that on your iPhone/Galaxy!
  • Gorgeous photos...though...it also helps that Vienna is the most beautiful city in the World...so that's kind of cheating XD
  • I thought the same thing. Although there would even be more beautifull locations in Vienna the photos are great. I am always happy when my favourite OS snaps pics of my favourite city.
  • Thanks for featuring my pictures. :-)
    Btw. they are all shot using the absolutely awesome ProShot App.
  • nice....did you use any sort of tripod or were they all just handheld photos with no attachments on phone of any kind? also how has your experience been with the phone in day light conditions? thanks.
  • I am interested in getting one of those portable tripods for cell phones. Anyone can suggest any model?
  • I like having a great camera phone, because unlike my dedicated camera, my phone is always with me.  So I wanted a tri-pod that would also be always with me. I found this keychain-tripod and am really happy with it:

    You'll need to buy a 5/8" keyring, which can be found at any hardware store for around 25 cents.
  • Hi, yeah. I've a custom made GoPro-Case for the Lumia which can be used together with a tripod: http://instagram.com/p/aEkwj8nzd0/
    It's easier to get such beautiful photos with a tripod :-)

  • DId you use Auto or manual settings? - If yes, what were they? Great Shots though!
  • Man those are awesome! I wish Verizon had the 920...wait a minute...they have a 928!! 
    I still want vibrant colors besides black and color however.
  • The sky looks amazing in that last shot! remember when taken pictures of the sky at night use to be impossible
  • Wow
  • Ok, now I'm really jonesing for the new EOS...sigh... Techiedude
  • Nice pics
  • Very nice!
  • Are we EVER going to see some pictures taken in the day?! We get it low light it's impressive but when is it going to be equally impressive in the day? Because at the moment it just isn't.
  • What settings was this on?
