As if you needed more proof that the Nokia Lumia 1020 has the best camera on a smartphone. We’ve seen it pushed to the limits with a photographer for National Geographic. And just earlier today we saw the results from giving snapping on a macro lens to the already impressive camera magic in the Lumia 1020. So what happens when the Lumia 1020 is put in a studio setting? Very impressive results. Check them out below.
Nokia’s resident camera expert, Ari Partinen, took the Lumia 1020 into the studio. Shooting in the studio is great because the photographer can control literally everything, especially the lighting. Along with colleague Marko Saari, Ari used various soft boxes and external flashes for the shoot. The Pro Cam app on the Lumia 1020 allows users fine control over various settings. For the photo shoot, white balance was set to daylight, ISO was at 100, and the exposure time set to 1/200.
The Lumia 1020 doesn’t come with any cords to sync with flashes, so how did they trigger them? A lot of flashes can receive a variety of inputs. For this shot, Ari set it up so that the flash would ignore the focus flash on the Lumia 1020 and fire when the external flash saw the Xenon flash. Check out the rest of the results at the Nokia Conversations blog.
