Winter Wonderland | Nokia Lumia 1020 Camera

As a Rogers Social Insider, I had the great opportunity to try out a Nokia Lumia 1020. A device that is literally the best of both worlds - smartphone and camera. This post is specifically dedicated to the camera that captures moments like no other, hard to believe right? This device is serious about photography so let's get started!

The Main Attraction:

With a 41 megapixel camera with PureView technology, optical image stabilization and high resolution zoom, can you ask for anything more? Well here's another one, the camera shots in HDR, hence capturing a greater range of exposure levels from very light to very dark. I found shooting in low lightening phenomenal along with the ability to snap a sequence of photo using the Nokia Smart Camera. I discovered this when reviewing pictures and being able to choose my favourite shot, remove unwanted objects or combine several photos in one! As a blogger, it's important to have the perfect picture and the Smart Camera makes this possible. No more need to take over a bajillion pictures!

The most interesting feature of the camera on the Nokia Lumia 1020 was that it resembles those seen on a DSLR. You must think I'm crazy but it's true. You have full control of the look of your final image. The two step shutter release allows the user to focus and snap with a button specifically designed for that purpose. The manual control over ISO, shutter speed, focus, white balance is truly amazing and I honestly only figured it out a day after playing around with the camera. However with a camera like this, expect some lag in start up, so patience is a virtue!

Camera Grip

Now Rogers is offering the Nokia Lumia 1020 with a free camera grip! Ah hello that's amazing as this snap on attachment is valued at $75, give the gift of capturing moments with the perfect accessory that turns your smartphone into a fully fledged camera. The detachable camera grip fits nicely in your hand and is surprisingly very ergonomic, don't don't worry about it being bulky.

Be sure to hurry as the offer ends on December 22!

Let's just say the Nokia Lumia 1020 takes photos like a pro.

So the day after I got this smartphones, the city I live in was graced with a snow storm, with dark clouds looming, can you guess what I did?
