Introduction | Nokia Lumia 1020 Sensor performance | Nokia Lumia 1020 Versus Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70: Competitive sensor performance | Nokia Lumia 1020 Versus Canon PowerShot S120 Versus Nikon Coolpix P330: Close in performance | Nokia Lumia 1020 Versus Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Versus Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II: Not a match for Sony’s 1 inch sensors | Nokia Lumia 1020 Versus Canon EOS 100D Versus Nikon D3200 | Conclusion

Comp 1

Compared with one of the more recent compact models in our database – the high-end ‘super-zoom’ Panasonic DMC-FZ70 sensor, the Nokia sensor performs very well indeed.

While the Nokia can boast of a +½ stop increase in color depth over the Panasonic, it can’t quite match that model’s dynamic range or low light capabilities; in both cases the Panasonic has a +1/3 stop advantage.

SNR

The gap is getting closer!
