    I have made this comparison just for fun. I even didn't thought that our gorgeous Lumia will be such a great competitor to DSLR! On some photos I have used prime (very expensive) canon lenses (85 mm f/1.2L). So, here is my results:

    lumiacanon2.jpg
    lumiacanon3.jpg
    lumiacanon4.jpg
    lumiacanon5.jpg

    Hope, you enjoyed this comparison! :) I think the major difference between expensive DSLR and our Lumia 1020 is DOF (depth of field). If Lumia 1020 could produce such DOF as DSLR I would really throw my DSLR away (to tell the truth I use 1020 in most of cases instead of DSLR).

    The L1020 has a fixed aperture size at f/2.2, so depth of field will be more or less fixed. But in taking almost-macro shots with subjects less than 12 inches away from the camera, depth of field becomes more shallow and becomes satisfactory in most applications.

    This is a random normal shot of a portion of a wall of a church that was buried in a volcanic eruption in February 1, 1814, demonstrating a bit of the shallowness of the depth of field of the L1020.

    I understand this clearly. But, it doesn't matter. As I said before, the main difference is DOF. The DOF on your photo is typical for cameraphones. You can't compare it at all to DSLR's DOF. This makes no sense. The gap between smartphone's and DSLR's DOF is endless.

    I wasn't comparing, alexey, since there's a difference between "comparing" and "demonstrating".

    Nonetheless, I "enjoyed" your comparison. Thanks for sharing these, and hopefully the L1020 successor would lessen the DSLR-camera phone gap - though I doubt this since DSLRs will be improved just as well as (or even better than) camera phones.

    This is pretty awesome, can you please make more photos from natural, so that I can show of the capabilities of Lumia to my friends.
    They're all use canon, and they think that no smartphone can beat it.
    Thank you

    Truly amazing results that even I didnt expect. Sometimes my Lumia shots match my 38MP A7R with prime lens quite well.

    I live in Saudi Arabia, sharing females photos with friends and teacher is completely unacceptable, so yes any pictures without female would be good.
    Thank you, I really was looking for this comparison.

    That is a fair comparison as far as I am concerned. The two sets of photos were taken in the same light and focus distance. The 1020 ROCKS. There is no phone camera that even holds a candle to the 1020.

    Sure, all photos were shooted in RAW and converted in Lightroom (1020 and DSLR). I have to shoot some landscapes photos.

    Im guessing he's saying that the comparisons aren't really the same photo so it'd be hard to compare.

    No it is not a fair comparison. They are not side by side comparisons of identical scenes. The backgrounds vary as do ambient and background lighting, not to mention shutters speeds and apertures. You have also provided no details regarding the configuration of the six year old DSLR or how the files were processed. For my money, they look like decent P&S images compared to minimally processed DSLR raw images shot as if shooting with a P&S camera, then converted straight to jpg.

    Yes, they look nice (mostly) but they compare nothing at all. In fact, to me they show the great limitation of all P&S cameras with over packed sensors - an artificial emphasis on detail over color, DOF, bokeh, and overall lighting. They also demonstrate a well known fact. If you take an expensive DSLR and use it like a P&S camera, 1) the results will be mediocre (at best) and 2) you wasted the money buying such an expensive camera. This is even more true given it is a second generation full frame camera released at the start of 2009. I am sorry but I do not see the "wow" in anything here (can manage about the same with a 928 under those settings). I also do see a DSLR technique in several images that suggest snapshot expertise that lends itself to less than spectacular results with any full frame DSLR.

    It's fascinating how far cellphone cameras have gone. All props to Nokia and they Pure View technology. Here is interesting comparison between 808 which is still king of the mountain despite its ancient software and Canon DSLR Nokia 808 PureView vs Olympus E-PL2 vs Canon 5D Mark III vs Apple iPhone 4S: 38MP shootout - GSMArena Blog
