Its often that Nokia brings the best in class imaging capability when it comes to smartphone imaging whether it be with simpler/professional controls in their Nokia pro cam.Nokia redefined mobile imaging when it launched Nokia 808 pureview sadly the camera of that phone was the only point what mattered to the buyer not the operating system hence Nokia again reinvented this space introducing Nokia lumia 1020 so far the best camera smartphone in the world ,period ! which was launched with a modern operating system = windows phone.its runs smoothly even with the latest wp8.1 update!
sadly if you are in a market to buy affordable smartphone you might not get the best in class specifications.nokia again sets a benchmark in this field by introducing Lumia 830,an affordable windows phone smartphone which comes with 10mp Pureview camera having OIS(optical image stabilization) world's thinnest OIS camera module with a slim built thats why you can't see a camera bump like we saw earlier in nokia lumia 1020.
Nokia kicks everyone out there when comes to camera software enhancements like now with lumia denim update you can now record 4K directly on your lumia smartphone no need for additional hardware these guys are the best! always! 4K video its recorded when you press and hold camera sw/hw button and it records 4K at 24fps Each frame is equivalent to an 8.3 megapixel image that can be saved. .Obviously though 4K is an insane resolution and it needs processing power for it to record ,so 4K recording will be available on high end devices like lumia 930,1520,icon.I means that is just awesome Apple,samsung,htc if you are reading this take notes!
You also get those usual updates like live folders,updated glance screen etc.affordability never looked so damn good!
