Re: Bought the Z3 Compact
1/ Yes they do.
2/ The company that made the ad used a DSLR because they didn't have a Lumia 1020.
Since launch, the software improvements on the 1020 have made the pictures better so those used in many reviews, which slaughtered the fruity competition anyway, even better.
The OIS system, in particular, is very impressive and the video is great.
For a review of the 1020 against nothing less than a Nikon D800, go here:
The reviewer (and my eyes) suggest the 1020 can exceed the capabilities of a very expensive DSLR under several circumstances.
Compares several DSLRs from over a decade of items, each the best in its era, against the 1020 and (to make a point) the iPhone 5S.
Obviously the 1020 crushes the iPhone but the author is amazed by how many of the DSLRs are defeated by the 1020. This includes the fact that the DSLRs were all using a $1700 lens to get the best out of them.
The main point of the article is that the 1020 can compete and beat a DSLR combo costing over 2 grand in many cases.
The DSLRs have superior capability in many ways (you can take pictures faster and more often for instance, although getting your 1020 out compared to getting DSLR is probably quicker). The iPhone is quicker than both but the use case is less useful to me.
The author of this article seems to believe that Lumia 930 takes a better picture than the Sony flagship and the 1020 takes better pictures than a 930 in almost most cases.
You obviously don't have and haven't used a 1020, those of us who have are constantly amazed by what it can do.
Still, looks like a nice phone, especially the smaller one, shame about the lack of wireless charging.
