I like the way all the DSLR users are in one way or another funny looking, oddly dressed and klutzy (some of us would have to plead guilty), while the Nokia users, are cool, elegantly attired and graceful in their movements!

Ahh, yes.. using a smartphone to take snapshots in bright light. Sure. That will work just fine. I'd like to see how well that 41 monster sized sensor works in low light conditions. Let's see a video for that!

Yeah, No.

Tests and reviews for the camera Nokia Lumia 1020 - DxOMark

Nowhere close to DSLR performance...not even close to a good P&S.

A camera phone is a camera phone. Limited, both by sensor performance and optics. Nothing wrong with them, but nothing particularly great either.

Camera phone or even P&S are great to "capture" a moment or scene like those in the video. They have very limited ability to "make" a good photo.

Wow. A score of 41. Sports iso score of 135. Pretty brutal considering that fairly cheap SLRs are scoring in the 80 range (K50, D3200). And that's not even considering optics. Cell phone photos are good for facebook, but they just aren't editable (other than putting weird filters on them). Just not enough dynamic range there to do anything.

Our discussion is centered around performance... Unfortunately they are selling looks... if you have a nokia you will look cool, no matter how crappy the pictures will be. If you have a DSLR, you will look like a reject, fat, nerd, no matter how awesome the pictures will be.

Sure. People use i phones for "great" photos too. But, honestly, it is easier to use a real photographic tool -- an SLR or MILC -- to take a photo in anything but good light settings. Can you figure out how to stick your Nokia on a tripod and take long exposures? Probably. I'm sure folks have done it. But once you are taking a tripod a long, then you turn into the geeky, idiotic SLR users in your advertisement. Beyond which, I would have a lot easier time taking a hand held photo with an SLR than with a camera phone, based on being able to go up on my iso and keep decent detail.

Falk says the opposite of what your advertisement says. He says that using the Nokia in the studio is possible, but significantly more difficult than using an SLR and that it gives OK, not great results. But thanks for sharing.

Really ? It's amazing how people here are getting all bent out of shape over a smartphone ad. It's like as soon as someone buys a DSLR it makes them a pro.

You'd probably get better reception on your Nokia forum. Most folks here are SLR users...
