Hmmm seems the link isn't working which may be because consumer reports charges for their content. At any rate they claim the 1020 is subpar in lowlight video, to the point of being bested by the iphone 4s, Samsung galaxy 4 and iphone 5. Was wondering if any owners can confirm this. Somewhat disconcerting considering I have a child and am really counting on that video capability to shine.

The New Nokia Lumia May Have A 41-Megapixel Camera, But That Doesn’t Mean It’s The Best here is the link that originally caught my eye. The author pretty much misrepresents the Consumer Report and is a complete ******. Implies the camera as a whole is inferior to the iPhone 4s but what the report specifically mentions is the low light video being sub par.

Color accuracy issues aside, the Lumia 1020 has one of the best still cameras we've seen on any phone—and even some point-and-shoots. But you'd better pack another smart-phone or camcorder if you're planning to shoot videos in dark environments."
Nothing news breaking here. But THIS they dug...

Interesting they didn't put up any video comparisons and don't have a comments area. If you go talking that kind of smack here and don't bring the goods to back it up you get called for BS. They didn't even provide a means to email the two guys that wrote it.Support your third-party developers. There just about all we have...

I've posted two long rants on these forums about Consumer Reports Apple love. I don't have an iPhone to compare to, so I can't do a similar comparison myself, but according to CR itself most of its subscribers are Apple users, so they need to find something to make their customers feel good about their choices.

More like Apple Reports...

There have been other threads regarding CR's articles and ratings of electronics and phones to be more specific. They really shouldn't be trusted. Almost any mainstream tech sight will give you better info. The Verge review (I believe) basically said the camera blows every other phone out of the water.

Okay, okay... I am done defending consumer reports when it come to tech especially. I will not bash he iPhone 4S+X2 or whatever it was. Never owned it. But I have seen enough of the iPhone's camera's performance to know that from one iPhone to another there has been very little actual improvements. Some shutter speed, some resolution tweaking, and oh yeah- in the iPhone 4 (or was it the "S"?), Apple actually added a FLASH!!! Woo-hoo!!!
I have heard enough of the low light shots of the 1020 to buy that is a problem. I find that curious, as Nokia hit that into the next time zone with the 920, so why get it wrong on a photo-centric device? Ether way, Nokia will have an update in less then 4 months to improve that, I am betting. Not only calling "shenanigans" on this, calling out and out bull-shenanigans."Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."- Ben Franklin.

I think the problem with CR is it doesn't compete in the technology anymore so its striking out just to be seen. With so many tech blogs delivering top notch information about "mobile" for free, the tech writers at CR are catering to a smaller and smaller audience and fighting for relevance. The OP's post is probably the largest audience its had in years.

This cracks me up. When a new phone comes out from someone other than the leaders in the mobile market, android and apple, it is always subpar in some way. It is usually apps apps apps, but the camera? Jeez that is a stretch. My 920 friggin blows away a 4s come on. I don't think from the demonstration I've seen a 1020 is a step back. Do not go off of tech reviews, go hands on. Tech reviews suck. Nuff said.

I literally fell off my chair laughing.. this author must have an apple for a brain, a rotten and maggot bitten brain at that!. As some have already said if the L920 beats it down to the netherworld and its been proven too. What chances does it have against the L1020?Can't believe this has to be posted lol..
Vote on both please for MS to retain the back button!

Haha.. This report has to be one of the most baised report i have read in recent past. Many are trying to bring Nokia and WP down.. But i dont care what they are trying to do.. The fact is Iphone no where comes near to Picture quality in Daylight and at night when compare to Lumia 920.. Dont even compare with Lumia 1020. 1020 will be far better than what iphone can give..
