Photo samples from the Nokia Lumia 1020’s 41-megapixel camera
The Nokia Lumia 1020 is finally here. It’s the first Windows Phone device with 41 million pixels on a sensor. It takes the best from Nokia’s past and present camera tech to make the future. Here are some sample images from Nokia showing the prowess of Nokia, Zeiss, and all those pixels.
The images we're putting in this post aren't even the full resolution samples. We'd break the web if we tried that. So you'll need to enjoy these highlights on our site. Then hit up the source link below to go see the full samples, be sure to zoom in and be blown away by how much detail you retain.
Seriously, go check the larger versions of these images below. They're crazy detailed. Don't forget to catch up on the Nokia Zoom event and learn more about the Lumia 1020.

imagine a 1020 creating a photosynth with about 20-25 41mp images..that's gonna blow your phone up!
Seeing it used live on some of the hands-on videos has been nothing else than amazing. Can't wait!
My next yellow phone :)
Think I have to polish it though... ;)
Now I'm stuck waiting until Fall to see what the holidays bring in terms of GDR3 upgrades and holiday pricing.
That said, it will probably come down in a few months.

Digital image stabilization becomes usefull, which can be combined with optical image stabilization. Digital zooming becomes useful because your typical display resolution is far inferior to 41MP, so digital zooming appears to be lossless.
I don't say that those sample pics aren't f****** awesome. I just wonder whether same quality pics can't be made with 20MP camera.
There's quite a few people out there who keep talking about how this camera can't do what it is obviously doing. I mean, really...the proof is in the pudding.
Here's a link to it:
edit: A comparisson photo has been made... I still can't get over how crazy this is
Hope that helps.

As a hobby photographer, there is no way not to buy this smartphone. hope its coming soon to Switzerland.
But I want this phone. The camera looks absolutely amazing, and I appreciate Windows Phone 8; however, I just couldn't commit to it because of several key apps. However, I'm willing to overlook those with this camera.
....I mean honestly, this camera, that baseball and seeing those invidividual sand grains did it.
