Nokia Lumia 1020 Pro Camera app will get 925, 928 and 920 release

Nokia's new Pro Camera application may debut on the Lumia 1020 announced yesterday, but the software will also be rolled out to the company's existing PureView Windows Phones, albeit after a firmware update to pave the way later this year. Pro Camera marks a considerable step up over the default Windows Phone camera app, overlying concentric controls for exposure, ISO, and more over the preview screen, and giving real-time feedback on what tweaking each of the settings will actually do.

SlashGear 101: Nokia Lumia 1020 Oversampling and the 5MP “Sweet Spot”

The Nokia Lumia 1020 is a smartphone with a 41-megapixel camera introduced by the company with intent on having it carried by AT&T here in 2013. This device works with a unique blend of abilities, tending not only to the massive photos produced when it takes 34MP and 38MP photos, but 5 megapixel photos as well. And why would Nokia suggest taking 5 megapixel photos when they've got a 41 megapixel sensor on this camera? It's the sweet spot!

Nokia has officially announced the Nokia Lumia 1020, the company's latest Windows Phone 8 handset and the first to use a 41-megapixel PureView camera system. Building on the pixel-oversampling technology of the original Nokia 808 PureView, the Lumia 1020 squeezes the camera into a smaller - though still chunky - form-factor, complete with a Xenon flash and new Pro Camera app with more control over manual settings.

AT&T Nokia Lumia 1020 PureView confirmed in video goof

AT&T has prematurely confirmed the Nokia Lumia 1020, posting a trio of videos of the PureView smartphone hours ahead of the Windows Phone's official unveil. The footage - likely to be removed as soon as someone at AT&T realizes the mistake, but for now embedded after the cut - confirms some of the highlight features of the 41-megapixel smartphone, as well as long-standing rumors that it would indeed be headed to the carrier in the first place.

Nokia Lumia 1020 confirmed by Windows Phone chief in EOS Flickr goof

Microsoft's own Joe Belfiore has apparently confirmed that the Nokia EOS 41-megapixel Windows Phone will launch as the Nokia Lumia 1020 PureView, posting sample shots from the smartphone to Flickr. The inadvertent name confirmation comes courtesy of two shared images that, according to the EXIF data from the shots, were taken on a Lumia 1020. Although EXIF data can be manipulated to suggest a different camera was used altogether, it's unclear why Belfiore - Microsoft's Windows Phone Manager - would bother tampering with his own shots.
