    One of the main reasons I abandoned the iPhone and all of it's wonderful apps was because of the amazing camera on the Lumia 1020 and the fact that I can actually shoot RAW DNG files.

    The primary advantage of a DNG file (compared with JPG) is the ability to do creative editing while keeping amazing detail and quality.

    These photos were shot from the 1020. Some freehand and some from a tripod. All were loaded on my PC and edited in Adobe CS6. Some had a lot of editing and some had nothing done to them other than the watermark and a cropping which makes them small enough to load to the forum.

    I'm suddenly a lot less bothered with the app deficit I suffered by switching to Lumia from Apple :)

    Minimal editing, was impressed with DoF from this camera.

    Nothing too special here but I wanted to see how it would do with a bright white background.

    Again impressed with the DoF. In the full resolution version I'm able to crop out quite a bit on the focused part without losing detail.

    Ok, the forum got a bit goofy so I'm not sure if I exceeded my upload limit so here are a few more:

    Still the full frame but cropped to fit. Reduced color to near black and white.

    Loved being able to isolate one piece. Minimal editing.

    Another angle....

    La piece de resistance; my D800! Other than the watermark, no editing. This is the only shot in this collection that required a tripod. Lighting done with some dollar store LED keyrings.

    Thanks for these images! They look amazing.

    Ordered a 1020 last week to replace my 920. The camera is too good to miss out on it, especially since Nokia added dng compatibility. I had the chance to use a Nokia 808 for a month but the OS drove me away but the images were awesome. Hope i can get similar results with the 1020.

    Dont worry, after a while you wont miss the iPhone. The iPhone 4 was my daily driver before i switched to WP8 and i missed the eco system the most. After a month or so i was a 100% happy Lumia user ;)

    I need to give DNG a try. Still happy but the work I've done finishing my DOF adapter is wasted if I can't use raw files!
