Finally, a Smartphone That Can Take the Perfect Shot: Nokia Releases Lumia EOS

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Sparks, Nevada (PRWEB) February 25, 2013 Nowadays, everyone takes photos. Every moment counts and each is worth capturing. The photo-sharing app giant, Instagram, is proof that everyone loves taking pictures. When it was introduced to the public in 2010, it received 10,000 downloads per day. In 2012, the app received more than 100,000 downloads per day in iTunes. The number keeps getting higher and higher as more and more people are buying smartphones and enjoying the built-in cameras.The app was such a hit that Facebook decided to buy it. The perception and use of photography is continually developing. Nowadays, smartphone operating systems and new lens technologies make photo-taking and image processing fast and easy. Just click, tap, or swipe to have good photos. Edit them and add effects, and then upload them to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or Instagram. Users even store them in cloud photo albums to sync them to desktop computers, tablets and smartphones.

Taking Photography to the Next Level Last year, Nokia released the Lumia 920, which became the most advanced smartphone of the Finnish company. Its most impressive feature is its high-tech camera, which is said to be an improved version of the camera in the Lumia 800 and 900. It has the PureView branding like the 808 Symbian smartphone. However, many 808 users were disappointed with the 920, because the camera on the 920, despite the branding, is very different from the 808’s camera.

The 808 was a huge success for Nokia because of its amazing 41-megapixel with PureView Sensor, which allows users better control over images. It is able to zoom in without any loss of detail and without making the picture too fuzzy. The company used pixel-binning technology on the 808, allowing the camera to produce 5- and 8-megapixel pictures with better low-light sensitivity and greater vibrancy than its rivals during that time.Although the sensor’s main purpose is not to produce large images, it does produce great and vivid images even in low-light environments. Standard digital cameras produce grainy photos when taking photos in low light. In photography, images taken at high ISO ratings (where small amounts of light are taken in) in a low-light environment usually have random specks of visible color due to the increased sensitivity of the standard sensors.

The Nokia Lumia 920 aimed to be better than the 808. Running on a new operating system, Windows Phone, it also has the PureView Camera. However, instead of an outstanding 41-megapixel sensor, it has the standard 8-megapixel chip. If the 808 impressed millions with its zooming function, the 920 does not, because the sensor is absent. However, that doesn’t mean the 920’s camera is bad, because it has something else to offer: The floating lens technology, which is an optical image stabilization system to produce sharper pictures even when it is used in a dark (low-light) environment.This technology is a gyroscope that detects shaking so that the camera moves to compensate, making the shutter stay open longer even in low light. A flash is not necessarily needed! Combine the 41-megapixel PureView camera of the 808 with the 920’s floating lens. What will Nokia offer next It’s the Lumia EOS.

In the now huge market of smartphones, new devices must have great changes not only to make itself different from another but also to best its rivals. For Nokia to be successful, it needs a phone with a feature that will make it leap over its competitors. Adding the 41-megapixel PureView sensor to Nokia products is a great move. As far as cameras go, the move or, call it the “leap” will surely create a wide distance between Nokia and its high-end competitor, Apple.

Lumia EOS: Leaping Over the iPhone 5 So how great is the Lumia EOS For avid Apple users, the iPhone 5 has an excellent camera. Even though it is limited by the tiny 1x3.2-inch sensor, the iPhone 5 is still miraculous, producing good-light photos and videos. But then again, in a real-world situation where people are mostly indoors, offices, parties, living rooms, and the like, the iPhone 5 camera is no longer ideal. This is where the Nokia Lumia EOS leaps over the iPhone 5. With a PureView sensor, every photo at an event indoors is still magnificent. With the new Lumia smartphone, every photo is blur-free, crisp and vibrant.

Thanks to the floating lens, no matter how shaky your hands are, it won’t affect the outcome of the photo. The camera adjusts to movements to balance itself and to avoid blurring. Combine that with the PureView sensor, and the photos have zero digital noise. Moreover, an option to zoom in on a subject is also available. The zooming function on the Lumia EOS is two times clearer than on the iPhone 5.

To really understand how far the EOS camera is from the iPhone 5’s camera, users have to look at the pictures both phones produce. The iPhone 5’s 8-megapixel iSight rear camera takes good pictures for a person’s everyday needs as long as there’s enough light, but, in terms of clarity of detail and low noise, the 41-megapixel PureView camera of the EOS packs a punch. Besides, the EOS has the powerful Xenon flash rather than the standard LED flash, like the one on the iPhone 5.

Another huge advantage of the EOS is its camera interface. The iPhone 5 has a point-and-shoot interface, which is easy to use, but with only HDR mode as an option. The EOS, on the other hand, has an interface to match the PureView sensor. It allows fully automatic to fully manual modes and adjust everything else. This makes it more efficient than the iPhone 5.

Moreover, both devices can shoot 1080p video with 30 frames per second and vibrant colors, but the Nokia Lumia EOS again wins because of its 41-megapixel sensor that combines few pixels into one pixel, offering more details. The sensor also allows full 4x lossless zooming even while filming in 1080p. If the camera shoots in only 720p, the lossless zoom goes up to 6x, allowing the user to be their own movie director while recording.

If Apple fans love iPhoneography, the art of creating photos with an iPhone, perhaps Nokia users will create a cult following with “Lumiography,” especially since the Lumia EOS brings amateur photographers to professional photography. Even kids can take beautiful pictures! Soon, when this phone is released to the public, many people will switch from iPhone to the EOS to have the PureView camera experience. The EOS is the closest thing to art photography! Will the Lumia EOS be a success Of course! Now that every person in this country takes pictures of almost everything they see and posts the pictures on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, or Instagram, who wouldn't want a smartphone that has a camera feature that leaps over the iPhone 5’s Getting PureView Camera Experience If beating the iPhone 5 isn't enough to convince you that the EOS is better, what will But if you are convinced, why not buy it Save money now, or better yet, sell your old smartphone at It is an online refurbishment company that buys old or broken smartphones and recycles them, instead of throwing them away to pile up in landfills.
