Nokia-Lumia-1020Smartphones frequently struggle to take photographs in poor light, and smartphone manufacturers are constantly pushing the boat out to provide the best possible cameras with their handsets. The iPhone 5S, for instance, has a considerably better camera than the iPhone 5, and Apple competitors Nokia and Sony are always creating exciting new cameras with an amazing number of features.

But the Sony Xperia Z1’s camera is sure to prompt demand from photography enthusiasts – while Sony has packed a lot of features into the handset, the camera is particularly remarkable. It sports image and video stabilisation, an LED flash, panorama, HDR, and 1080p video capture on its 20.7 megapixel 1/2.3-inch Exmor RS rear camera, as well as a 2 megapixel front camera.

This technology is supported by a Sony BIONZ image processor, a custom camera app, and an F/2.0 Sony G lens.

Together, these innovations provide astounding picture quality in low light conditions, provoking interest in the Xperia Z1 among those who need to use their smartphone to take pictures, or those who are fed up with grainy, low-contrast photographs taken late at night.

But the Nokia Lumia 1020 has also provoked interest among photographers, as it contains an amazingly powerful camera. It boasts an incredibly-detailed 41 megapixel camera, with a 1/1.5-inch sensor size, an f/2.2 aperture, Carl Zeiss optics, 4x lossless digital zoom, PureView technology, Xenon and LED flash, and optical image stabilisation. There is even an optional camera grip to give the smartphone the appearance of a high-end photography device.

With such powerful, exciting, and cutting-edge cameras, photography enthusiasts who want to buy one of these handsets will probably have to consider the other features of the smartphone when deciding which one to go with.
