Smartphone cameras have transformed photography. Almost everyone has a camera with them all the time now, which means that there’s little need to buy a separate digital camera: smartphones have effectively killed off the market for digital cameras and for most people, their smartphone is their only camera. The Nokia Lumia is the best camera phone in the market.

Nokia Lumia 1020 – When it comes to smartphone camera quality, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is in a world of its own. The Windows 8 phone was built around the 41 mega-pixel camera. 41-megapixels is absurdly high as too many “pixels” on a small surface area can easily hinder image quality. But Nokia has opted for a larger sensor, so the relative size of each is similar to the majority of its competitors. Its unique selling point is actually its digital zoom which expands from 26mm to 78mm. You can switch between a Pro Camera mode that helps you capture stunning photos, a Smart mode for adding effects to your shots, and an amazing HD video camera where you can zoom six times without losing the quality of the footage.
