Nokia India just announced on their facebook page that Nokia Lumia 1020 PureView is available for pre-order! Pre-order starts at Rs. 49,999 (808USD approx)!
No doubt, Nokia Lumia 1020 an awesome device, but Rs 49,999 is too much for a device. If this is the final price after launch, I doubt they will be able to do sufficient sale.

Think about Mobile Phone Camera and I doubt anybody would think any name except Nokia. Nokia has been the king of smartphone camera and the driving force behind has been @PhoneDaz for last 9 years. But Damian Dinning is leaving Nokia on this 30th Nov. It been a kind of shock for almost all fans.
In a talk with @PureViewClub he shared few words,
Following the news of my forthcoming departure from Nokia I wanted to say a few words:
Firstly, wow! Huge thanks for the incredibly kind words of support and well wishes. I have been so touched by all of your messages.
As reported in Nokia’s own statement regarding my forthcoming departure, a number of key strategic roles have moved to Finland. My family and I are based in the UK at a stage in our lives where relocation is unfortunately not an option. I have therefore made the tremendously difficult decision after nearly 9 years with Nokia to leave the company. I am hugely proud of the work I have been involved with during my time at Nokia and feel privileged to have worked with some of the smartest people I’ve ever been fortunate enough to meet.
As reported by a few, the work area I am best known for, imaging, is the result of a huge and massively talented pool of people. I have often felt embarrassed by the media attention I received knowing that whilst I am proud of my own contributions and the forward looking guidance I have strived to provide the teams, there are a lot of unsung heroes!
I have known for some time that I would be leaving Nokia. I’ve spent many many months with this in mind, working with incredibly talented and highly motivated people across various teams building towards the next steps Nokia will take in imaging.
At a very young age, I had two very strong interests, cars and photography. With regards to the latter, I wanted to be able to take photography from the nerdy or for special occasions only use it was at the time, to being part of everyday life. I never thought I’d be able to play a role in making that happen, but my time at Nokia gave me exactly that opportunity. I really feel I’ve been able to fulfil that ambition. Whilst we’re really only just entering the next major stage in the development of photography and I still have a very clear vision of how I see it’s longer term development, I fully recognise this is the perfect opportunity for me to work in quite a different area.
For those less cynical amongst you, there’s a lot to look forward to as the various teams continue to work as hard as ever. I feel confident you’re going to really love what they’re working on for the future. Having been directly involved, I’m personally intrigued to monitor as a spectator, their progress.
As for my future, I am moving to an industry I’ve wanted to be part of for a very long time. My experience in telecoms and smartphones provides me with a great opportunity to make a difference in a company whose own development is inspiring at a time of great change. I am thrilled that I’ll shortly be joining Jaguar Land Rover where I’ll take a role
driving future innovations in the exciting new field of Connected Car.
You can still contact me via my twitter page @PhoneDaz, but I will not be using this account in relation to my new role. Feel free to nudge me from time to time…
Best wishes to you all.
It is really sad to see him go. However as he has said, his team is already there and they will be pushing great things ahead.
Kristina Björknäs from Nokia demonstrated Nokia Lumia 920 at Photokina. Marc @PureViewClub shot couple of videos of the demonstration and shared it on his blog at http://pureviewclub.com
In first video, Kristina Björknäs displays great specs of Lumia 920 PureView, like supersensitive touch, PureMotion HD+, and great CBD display. Quoting the @PureViewClub ,
First, Kristina mentions a few of the interesting specifications of the display: supersensitive touchmakes it possible to use it even with your gloves on or with your nails – you don’t need the skintouch anymore. PureMotion DH+ is a way of overdriving that makes the screen 2,5 times faster than the screens of the competition.
Visibility is enhanced by using ClearBlack technology, sunlight readability enhancement and a high brightness mode, offering up to 600 nits – that means you will easily be able to read the screen outdoors in the sun. Of course, you won’t need as much light indoors, and you shouldn’t use that much since it will probably take a lot more energy.
So how excited are you for Lumia 920? Let us know. 😉
I know I should have shared this few days back but I was quite busy shifting from one state to another state. On 31st Aug, I had a small conversation with @PhoneDaz, Imaging Guru and man behind Nokia’s best cameras and PureView Technology. Have a look at it:
When asking if PureView needs 41 MP, he stated,
@ksg91 PureView is a blend of new imaging sw+hw tech 2 create leading performance/capabilites. There r many diff ways this can b applied.
Asking if smaller sensor will deliver similar quality, he clearly stated PureView is not about pixels, it’s about mixture of hardware and software.
After few people noticed this conversation, they posted this on few blogs and people kept asking more about upcoming Lumia PureView. Little frustrated because of people asking him to comment on rumours (obvious) , he tweeted about PureView technology.
As he has already said:
The future of photography will be about how you use pixels, optics and image processing together.
— Damian Dinning (@PhoneDaz) September 4, 2012
#PureView is about blending optics, pixels and image processing in new and different ways to allow you to do things you otherwise cannot.
— Damian Dinning (@PhoneDaz) September 4, 2012
#PureView is NOT a single specific feature or specification.
— Damian Dinning (@PhoneDaz) September 4, 2012
Thus, it is almost sure that upcoming Lumia PureView is not going to have 41 MP sensor. Rumors are saying, Lumia PureView will be 21MP or mostly 8MP PureView with more features like image/video stabilization and other software enhancements. Question is, how well smaller sensors will work against 41MP PureView sensor? Only thing we can do is to wait one more day. 😉
