Here are photos I took using the Nokia Lumia 1020 while on my Austria & Bavaria trip last month.
These images were the 34 MP images, converted to low res images (70% smaller via Irfanview), and then again made low res by Facebook. I did very little PP with them, as that's what the DSLR RAWs are for. Hope you enjoy:

Lenses / Re: Protective filter for 24-70 II - standard or thin?
« on: October 16, 2013, 06:25:19 AM »
I use the "- B+W 82mm UV Haze MRC 010M Filter" with my 24-70II with no vignetting. I just hate the lens cap design. Too easy to fall off.

I just came back from my 1-month Germany/Austria trip. I was impressed with the daytime and DR capabilities of the Lumia 1020. Night shots weren't too shabby, but won't beat a handheld f2/.8 DSLR lens. Still processing all my photos, but will put up a Facebook gallery when its up so you can decide for yourselves whether a high quality smart phone is a worthwhile companion to a DSLR.

quick sad story: 1 week into my trip, my tripod blew over during high winds in the alps and destroyed my 24-70II, so I only had my Lumia to take photos with until I was able to buy a cheap temporary lens several days later (Tamron 28-75mm, not too shabby in hindsight and reviewing of my photos).

Black Rapid sport. I've kept it on all day for 12+ hr hikes (Yosemite Half Dome, etc.), and multiple day treks (Routeburn track, New Zealand, etc.) paired up with a 5DMark3+24-70II with no pain or health issues.

Yea, sorry you had to experience our political shenanigans (not pointing fingers at any particular groups/people), Cid. I just came back from a 1month trip in Austria/Germany. It was mostly hiking and photography in the alps. I would've hate to be turned back or to completely change my itinerary because political bickering closed down open space areas for the public and tourists to enjoy.

Landscape / Re: Beautiful sunsets

No need to insult? You sounded like you insulted the photographer who uploaded the Tahoe sunset with your "saturation slider" comment.

And, spending weekends nearly every week in Tahoe for winter to snowboard, and going there for day hikes in the summer, yes, Tahoe has some amazing sunsets thanks to all the amazing clouds that forms in that mountain region.

I will be on a trip to Europe shortly (Austria/Germany). Originally, my plan was to bring my Canon 5DM3 and EOS M (for giving to others to take a photo of me, I don't hand anyone my 5D) as my cameras, while my Lumia 1020 would be there obviously for GPS/Internet/text, etc. But, I've since reconsidered and will be using the Lumia as my backup camera, and the camera I give to other tourists to take a photo of me.

For a simple comparison with the EOS M, the image quality of the EOS M is still noticeably better, and you can do more with the RAW image, but the Lumia is more than adequate. And with the Lumia, you can edit your photos onscene with numerous photo apps, geotag it, and upload it for all your friends to see instantly. If the photos are just going on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram, you'll be more than happy with the Lumia.

I recently did a photoshoot (cowgirl theme), and attempted to use the Lumia to compare it with the quality/versatility of my 5DM3 with a 70-200. The 5DM3 won hands down for that type of purpose.

Oh, I've also done 5 shot HDRs with the Lumia on a tabletop tripod and merged with Photomatix. Didn't come out too shabby.

OP, I have both a Nokia Lumia 1020 (I am a Windows Phone fan), a Canon 5D Mark 3, and a Canon Rebel t2i. No doubt, the Lumia 1020 takes the best photos available in any smartphone, but it does not beat a DSLR. You're comparing the electronics and technology crammed into a tiny smartphone, versus all the versatility a DSLR offers.

The image quality of the Lumia is nice, so are the non-amateur abilities to set things like ISO, shutter speed, white balance, etc. It is also very portable, so if carrying a DSLR is too inconvient, too heavy, or not allowed (like at sports venues), then the Lumia is a capable alternative.

Thank You, Sir., Dear Mr. replay0

I got no problems with his stunt. It got the attention he was seeking. I see it kind of like how no one discloses all the post processing one makes to a photo to stand it out from the rest of the crowd (if a photo is not straight from the camera).

Street & City / video of photographer getting his lens stolen

A bunch of thieves set this photographer up for failure. Just something to be aware of next time you're out and about with your camera and big L lens.

Bought mine, and a bunch of other stuff on B&H, all thanks to CR. :P Wouldn't have splurged otherwise.

Lenses / Re: Is the 16-35 L II worth its price?
« on: June 06, 2013, 12:46:07 AM »
I've never really been impressed with my 16-35 II, and rarely use it. It's not bad, but it's not good either. I ended up falling back on my 24-70 I most of the time, and now that I have the 24-70 II (sold ver. I), I just don't see the value of the 16-35 II. To make up for the loss of a slightly wider angle, I sometimes just stitch photos together from my 24-70 II for a wider pano look.

I was in Norway in September with my 5DM3 + 24-70L mark 1. It was basically raining the entire time I was there, but I had an itinerary of hikes I had to do. I basically hiked with it in the rain constantly, and it held up just fine. It was normal rain fall, not heavy storm, and I had the camera in a holster case some of the time. The lens was weather sealed with a B+W slim UV filter.
