“We already know that Nokia Lumia 1020 takes great pictures when you’re out and about, but how does it perform in studio conditions?”

That was the question that the people at Nokia asked themselves. To learn the answer they contacted their camera expert Ari Partinen and his colleague Marko Saari, who organized a fashion studio photo shoot with a Profoto D1, the good old ComPact, an Umbrella XL and the HR Softbox 1.5×3.5′.

So, what do you think? How does the Nokia Lumia 1020 perform in studio conditions? Leave a comment below!

Head over to the Nokia Blog for the full story.

    I don’t know if “no one” would sell a camera phone pic, considering there are a lot of pro photogs who have shot entire weddings with an iPhone and have printed the albums and sold them; for thousands.

    Let us open our minds up a little more and think outside of the box. It is a tool. The better the skilled, the better the tool can be used. Is it an H5D or a D800E? Of course not, but could those images be sold to a fashion editor? Damn Skippy.

    Great job to the Profoto and Nokia team for showing what a little skill, teamwork, imagination and inspiration can create.

    Odd question but did he trigger the strobe via an app or was it simply constant lights from the strobes ?

      Triggered by turning on flash and putting a small reflector on it to flash the cells. The photos aren’t bad with the caveat that they were shot on a phone. We saw this done with an iphone. The point is, you need 20 grand worth of profoto to make a Nokia Lumia look mediocre.

        When you say they are not bad, are you saying they are good? To me they are stunning photos with good lighting and detail.
        The comparison with the iPhone is really a silly remark as it barely compared to ‘Point and Shoots’. The differences between the Lumia and the iPhone are noticeable on paper, and in real life:
        -Megapixels – 41 vs 8
        -Sensor size – 58mm2 vs 15.5mm2
        -Manual focus
        -ISO control
        -Optical stabilisation (not digital)
        -white balance control

        The reflector I believe is to not affect the subject as opposed to direct the light.

        Regards,
        Ivan

    Personally, my favorite brand is Samsung Galaxy. But, now Nokia Lumia 1020 seems to be great for it’s camera features. Thank you for this post.
