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

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...

Exclusive: New render of 41MP Nokia Lumia 1020 in yellow, white and black plus more details revealed

As we get closer and closer to Thursday, it is probably of little surprise that more information is coming out about Nokia’s 41MP Windows Phone, the Lumia 1020. The device, which has gone by the codename ‘Elvis’ on AT&T and ‘EOS’ in general, is expected to be Nokia’s biggest splash yet in mobile photography since the PureView 808, but this time with the power of Windows Phone behind...

Nokia Lumia 920 footage during live concert captures amazing video and audio

While we’ve shot video on the Nokia Lumia 920 a few times under somewhat ideal conditions e.g. quiet, well lit, there’s a good argument to be made that we haven’t seen too many “real world” examples. From our Lumia 920 forums, member ‘mercilesskiller’ posted this YouTube video clip of a Seether concert at the Manchester Academy 2, Manchester UK. While the clip is only 58 seconds long...

Lumia 920’s video image-stabilization shown in live test. Beats Samsung GS3. Again.

Lumia 920’s video image-stabilization shown in live test. Beats Samsung GS3. Again.

Although Nokia caught some flak for the misleading demonstration of the 920’s camera, we’ve always maintained that optical-image stabilization (OIS) is a very real and proven technology.  Still, Nokia has some catching up to do to prove to the world just how impressive the 920’s camera can be with OIS on board and as it turns out, the task is simple: just use it. A Russian site managed...

Nokia Lumia 920 Pureview Camera: bad ads or bad camera? New evidence suggests the former.

The Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone's Pureview Camera turned a lot of heads this week with it's very impressive low light and stabilizing features. The demo video and still images gave hope that a "knock your socks off" camera was heading to the Lumia Windows Phone line. But the video and still images have been dissected more than a High School science project with accusations that Nokia...

Nokia takes photo challengers against the Lumia 920 PureView, crushes the iPhone, GS3

Last night during Nokia’s par-tay we managed to check out their little photo challenge area. In short, they literally had a cubby hole in a brick wall where you could mosey on up with your smartphone, snap a pic and then Nokia would do the same with the Lumia 920. Of course the Lumia 920 is better positioned to win such a contest, after all it has everything: lens stabilization, a...
