We have all seen examples of the amazing photographic abilities of the Nokia Lumia 1020, with it’s 41MP sensor and 6 times optical zoom it takes photographs on a smartphone to another level (as does the Nokia 808 Pureview). Sceneries, sunsets, flowers and wildlife, the internet is awash with great pictures taken on Nokia’s Camera flagship Windows Phone. But, does it have what it takes to capture a wedding?
One couple thought so, Crista and Chris from California allowed their wedding to be captured on the Lumia 1020, with “Celebrity photographer” Joy Marie Smallwood taking the shots, and the results produced were pretty astounding. Joy Marie said:
“The quality of the photos we took at the Cabo wedding using the Lumia 1020 were crisp with a great depth of colour and totally exceeded our expectations. The 41-megapixel sensor is pretty outstanding for a camera phone.
“One aspect I particularly liked was the wide frame, when taking staged images and scenery backdrop images, the photos from the 1020 were comparable to, if not better than those I usually take on my DSLR,” Joy Marie continues.
“I also loved the smart camera app on the phone, it meant I was able to capture emotion and those quick moments you always get in a wedding, and it even gave me the best shot to keep.”
The Bride and Groom also seemed happy with the results, saying “We were really excited and honoured when Joy approached us about having our wedding shot using a Lumia 1020. She’s an incredible photographer so we were more than happy to have it done. We can’t get over how well they have come out. It is very impressive.”
This video, which is on Nokia’s YouTube Channel takes a look at the day and is also recorded on the Nokia Lumia 1020.
Congratulations to Nokia and the imaging team for another success from the Nokia Lumia 1020, I’m very interested to see what will be coming next in the way of camera innovation.
