To provide photographers with a broader perspective about mobiles, lenses and cameras, here are links to articles, reviews, and analyses of photographic equipment produced by DxOMark, renown websites, magazines or blogs.
DxO, the same company behind DxOMark, has introduced DxO ONE, a new pocket-sized connected camera designed to capture images with a quality and caliber previously unobtainable in a one-inch sensor camera. The DxO ONE camera’s score of up to 85 puts it on par with many DSLR cameras, such as the Nikon D7200 and the Sony A7S (both with a score of 87), and is well above such Canon DSLRs as the EOS 5D Mark III (81) and the 7D Mark II (70). This score also places it in third among compact cameras, just behind the full-frame Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 and the DSC-RX1R, which score 93 and 91, respectively.
Widely heralded as ground breaking in the world of mobile photography, the Nokia Lumia 1020 has impressed many with the quality of its images. Now DxOMark has set its sights on the Lumia 1020, and put it through a full review, putting it up against the rest of the camera industry in a full suite of tests.
When DxOMark tests out the quality of mobile phone cameras, they usually classify and rank them as such. There’s a whole mobile section to the site where one can compare different smartphone cameras using a different scoring system.
When the Nokia Lumia 1520 was launched in October 2013 it took the honor of being first smartphone to offer Raw image capture. Now the same feature was recently added to the older model Lumia 1020 via the Nokia "Black" firmware update.
Mucho se habla del excepcional rendimiento de los sensores fotográficos que monta últimamente Nokia. Con razón. http://www.dxomark.com/Mobiles/Nokia-Lumia-1020-overview-Has-the-best-got-better“>DxOMark ha analizado el sensor del Nokia Lumia 1020 y, dicho análisis, arroja interesantes resultados. Como siempre, depende con quien comparemos este pequeño sensor de smartphone para decir si es tan bueno como parece.
With reports in the media of camera manufacturers scaling back on digital compacts due to the rise in popularity of camera-phones and mobile photography, we were curious to see if the Nokia 1020 could offer comparable performance. Read on to find out how this model fares against a range of digital cameras.
I'm surprised the Lumia 1020 ranked only 222 out of 242 compared to point and shoot cameras given that it can shoot raw, and has a bigger sensor and more megapixels than most point and shoots. It seems that you're saying that it has difficulty in low light. Given the above (sensor size, megapixels), why does it struggle in low light? Also, do your ratings take into account its ability to shoot raw? Even if the initial image comes out a little worse, some editing might make it look better than editing an image from a point and shoot that doesn't shoot raw, right?
Are you planning on doing Mobiles sensor reviews for the S4, or did I miss it? And are you planning on doing sensor + lens testing like in the Lenses section. You're written the ? a few times something like "Are camera phones as good as point and shoots?" I'd like to compare all devices in the same scale. This article is excellent and a very good start on the complete comparison ability. You also did convert the Nikon D7000 to a mobile score of 95. How was that done?
Hi Mike, Nikon D7000 was tested with the same DxOMark protocol with the "default" mode as every smartphone. If we have time we will perform lens tests for the 1020. Not sure that the Samsung S4 provide RAW files for now but if it does we will analyse its sensor. Best regards.
Good job for this cool test. I have always wondered how this Nokia would fare. Outside the ISO score, the IQ is truly comparable to high end compacts. The ISO performance must be a bit poor due to the heat inside the phone. Overall, a very good performance.
