Shooting with the Lumia 920

Shooting with the Lumia 920

Almost gone are the days where people bother carrying a point-and-shoot camera. But then again, why should we when there are smartphone devices that are good enough for casual shots? Case in point: the Nokia Lumia 920. Before we start flooding you with photos taken with the device, here's a quick rundown of the device's key specs:

  • 4.5-inch Pure Motion HD+ display, 768 x 1280 resolution
  • 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual core processor
  • 8.7-megapixel camera with Pureview technology
  • 32GB mass memory with 7GB free SkyDrive storage
  • 2000mAh battery with integrated Qi wireless charging

In a nutshell: 8.7-megapixel camera at the back with f/2.0 lens and 1.2-megapixel camera on the front with f/2.4 lens.

In fact, we liked the phone's camera quite a bit that we decided put together a small montage of photo from one of our casual morning shoots. Do note that these photos were taken on Auto mode and without changes to the default camera settings. To snap a photo, you either lightly tap on the touch screen on the area you want focused or press and release the shutter button located on the phone's right profile - most of the time we relied on the former since it is simply just more convenient unless the phone's in sleep mode.

Photos were all taken without zooming in to preserve as much quality as possible. They have not been post-processed and are copyright to SPH Magazines. These are provided for your reference only and we ask that you do not reproduce them elsewhere. Click for the full-resolution images.
