Traveling Without My Camera – Nokia Lumia 1020 Review

I’ve heard it said that the best camera is the one you have with you. How true that is when you stumble upon something beautiful and all you have is your phone camera! Up until this summer I had been a religious iPhone user. But when the button on my iPhone 4S stopped working and I had the opportunity to try out a Windows Phone, I made the switch to my (now old) Nokia Lumia 820. It was a solid phone, but my one complaint was its camera, which performed horribly in low lighting and produced low-res images overall. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you know that I document everything with photographs, so using the 820 meant that I needed to bring my hybrid SLR camera with me everywhere I needed to take photos. Well, thanks to my awesome tech-savvy grandfather who bought me an early Christmas present, those days are over! I now welcome my Nokia Lumia 1020 Windows Phone and its 41-mega-pixel camera into my device family.

Last week was the first time in my life that I didn’t use a camera (that is, a device that is primarily a camera) on a trip. All the photographs I took in Redmond were taken on my new phone, and I am so pleased with its performance! Here are some of the best pictures from my trip, taken with the rear and front facing cameras. For the sake of displaying the quality of performance, all the photos in this post are unaltered, aside from cropping.

I am so happy with this new phone and can now rest easy knowing that I’ll be able to take pictures wherever and whenever I want.
