More EOS/1020 Camera Quality Teasing by Nokia #ZoomReinvented

| July 10, 2013 | 18 Replies

WP_20130617_12_40_31_Zoom2¬†Yesterday we posted a picture of which we assumed was a photo taken by the 1020, which showed a picture of 6 balloons floating away tagged with #ZoomReinvented (image below). Well Nokia conversation have just shared a second image of the same scene (seen above) which shows you exactly how far away those balloons were, insane right! I can’t figure out if the picture below was taken at full zoom, or whether it was cropped out (I assume it was taken at full zoom, hence the hashtag) either way it’s pretty remarkable.

    i’m guessing we’ll get a 3rd image at a much greater distance tomorrow

      Exactly. I don’t think we have seen the full picture yet. I know 808 can zoom more. Plus, even the second picture Nokia has shown seems like it is a cropped image, judging by the fact that it still looks like it was taken from helicopter or something.

      The original picture must’ve been taken from the top of a building so we still have to see the full picture. Perhaps we will see it tomorrow.

    Way to go.

  • stylinred

    probably handled the same way as the 808s winter pic

  • v.s.i

    Can someone work out the zoom factor? I’d say more than 5x?

    • Hary

      Well the leaked specs already say 3x limit.

  • Bob

    Impressive, most impressive.

    Objects in the ‘cropped’ image would seem to be about 4x larger than in the ‘zoomed out’ image.

  • Mr Plastik

    It’s cropped. The position of the balloons, as well as the position the balloons are, in are the same in both pictures. Therefore, it’s safe to assume the smaller picture is a crop of the larger picture.

      Excuse my misplaced comma.

    Colours not as natural as 808.. :-/

    • dss

      most people don’t like that anyway.. punchy iphone like colors are preferred by the masses

      • Shakazulu

        wouldn’t agree, first pureview had awsome DSLR like colors and it’s close to iphone 4S

      • Please, not the high saturation of iPhone like pictures. N8 style color reproduction as close to what the human eye sees. Or at least have a setting for it or something.

  • The important thing to note is HOW? did they get 41 megapixel support if the processor did not support it !
    is it a custom chip?
