These guys based in the US are comparing the Nokia Lumia 1020 with a DSLR. It’s not meant to be a serious scientific comparison, just perhaps what amateur photographers might consider.

Their conclusion? For the price of a good point and shoot, you also get a phone and one with a camera that’s the best you’re gonna get. Now that’s fortunately not news to us. Unanimous praises from all around the web crown this Nokia as the best on the market right now. ArsTechnica says it’s one to render point and shoots obsolete. I mean if you can carry your point and shoot all the time because it’s your phone, why not?

We did a ‘quick test’ a while back with a 60D, the results surprising us too. I just noticed in the related videos it seems to have been reuploaded again and again and again haha.

Lisa in her review for MobileTechReview said “Wow, this is as good as my Digital SLR”.

Even to be considered in the same space as a DSLR is phenomenal praise. DSLR’s will obviously still have their uses. Point and shoots however, even generic camera phones are eating into their use time. What more when you have the likes of the 1020?
