Pinch to Zoom is Dead – Introducing Zoom Later by Nokia

Posted: July 14, 2013 in Uncategorized


At the end of the month, Nokia will introduce a new smartphone that can replace your point and shoot camera – No, really!

The Nokia Lumia 1020 smartphone has a 41 megapixel camera element along with a six lens design – all of which were designed with ZEISS as well as a true shutter for blur free motion/action shots.

This new flagship smartphone from Nokia isn’t just a bigger sensor on your phone, no, it’s a new way to take photos.

Zoom Later

With Nokia’s Pro Camera softbeware which is also being made available to current Lumia smartphones running Windows Phone 8, takes the time consuming task of setting up the shot before you shoot.

Take a photo with the 1020’s huge sensor and it takes a wide area shot of what ever is in front of you. After you have taken all the shots you want, you re-open the ultra large photos, zoom, rotate, and crop your image ‘just so’ and it saves a more sharable 5 megapixel of your edited photo that is suitable for sharing immediately on Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Videos that you record with the Lumia 1020 are shot in either 720p or 1080p at 30 frames per second. With these two camera modes and the 41 megapixel sensor in the smartphone, you can zoom between 6 and 4 times respectively without compromising the videos quality. A nice side effect of this very unique zoom capability is that your microphone does not pick up the sound of your lens zooming in and out, making for a more finalized product.

To really cement this smartphone as more than a phone, Nokia also is shipping a camera grip which gives your Lumia 1020 a larger form factor with a grip for one handed use, attaching to a tripod and additional battery for the all the extra use you will be getting from your smartphone and camera.

Even if you don’t buy the optional camera grip accessory, the smartphone comes with a wrist strap so you don’t accidentally drop your camera over the side of your boat or into the sandy beach.

So, if you want to always have a great camera or video camera with you for all those moments you want to share, this is the only device many people will ever need or want.
