I recently acquired the Nokia Lumia 1020. This rather large Windows 8 phone is more like a brick than a phone, but it does sport a whopping great camera. This is what makes up the bulk of the backside of it, forming a slightly ungainly hump. I require very little in a modern phone, by the way. If it makes calls and can send text messages, then the rest is pretty superficial. A nicely organised app store would be nice occasionally, but Microsoft have so little marketshare, that it seems unlikely to change anytime soon. Still, I did buy this primarily for the camera; and what a camera it is!

Amazingly, this beauty packs in 41 megapixels. In the real world, this many pixels is pretty useless most of the time. But what it does provide is a way for this phone to crop-zoom without essential loss of detail. If you want to go further and work with the RAW files in a program like DXO Optics 9 (which supports Lumia DNG files), then it also gives you the ability to crop the heck out of a photo and still be able to print pretty darn big with good detail. Here are a few piccies from the past month:
