Tech Check: Nokia Lumia 1020

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

A lot of pictures filled the FOX 5 email accounts this weekend after a fireball was spotted skimming across the early evening sky. Many of those photos were taken using a smartphone. And serious smartphone photographers will want to check out a particular smartphone with an advanced camera.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 has a whopping 41 megapixel camera. In comparison, the newly release iPhone 5S has recently only stepped up their cameras to 8 megapixels.

And it's not the typical camera either with a mechanical zoom in addition to an advanced image stabilization system that allows for a greater diversity in picture taking. This while most other phones only offer a digital zoom, if that.

The Windows Mobile device is also fast to aid in continuous snapping of pictures. It also offers manual and auto focus features.

Prices for the smartphone vary, but most run about $199 with contract. For more information on the Nokia Lumia 1020 visit nokia.com.

If you consider yourself a smartphone savvy photographer, show off a little. Post them to facebook.com/DougEvansFOX5 or tweet them to @DougEvansFOX5.
