20MP Nokia PureView Camera with Zeiss Optics
The main rear camera of the Nokia 1520 features a headline-grabbing 20MP, but the camera on the Nokia 1520 has far more then pixel count going for it. The image sensor is back-side illuminated and is 1/2.5", which is larger than typical smartphone cameras. This means that the individual 20 Million photosites on the 1520's image sensor are no smaller than the photosites on most smartphone cameras. In front of the image sensor is an impressive 6-element, 26mm equivalent, f/2.4 lens with Zeiss Optics, further making sure all 20MPs don't go to waste. The image sensor is also slightly larger then the lens circle which allows for both 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios to capture as much of the lens's image circle as is possible, both 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios capture about 19MP of entire 20MP sensor.

The Nokia 1520's camera also features optical image stabilization, which allows the camera to use slower shutter speeds and gather more light without adding motion blur from shaky hands. And if you need even more light the 1520's dual LED flash will produce great looking results for enhanced pictures in lower light conditions. The front of the 1520 also features a 1.2MP front facing camera for video chatting or capturing more candid photographs. The PureView camera can capture images in JPEG or RAW in 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratios. It can also record 1080p HD video at 30 fps with up to a 3x digital zoom.
PureView Sampling and High Resolution Zoom
The Nokia 1520 lets you save full resolution JPEG or RAW photographs if you desire maximum quality, and is also able to downsample the full 20MP to ultra-sharp 5MP photos for easier sharing with social networks or email. The downsampled 5MP photos can be saved simultaneously with the full resolution ones, or you can just save the 5MP photos to save space on your phone. The ultra high resolution image sensor also allows for a high quality digital zoom, as a 5MP photo at 2x zoom is still capturing the full 5MP center of the 20MP image sensor.
Full Manual Control with Nokia Pro Camera
Complimenting the 1520's high end camera is the Nokia Pro Camera app. When using Nokia Pro Camera you have easy access to manual controls like ISO, Shutter Speed, White Balance, Exposure Compensation, and Manual Focus. You can edit all of these settings manually or set some to automatic and choose which ones you want to edit. White balance modes include cloudy, incandescent, fluorescent, daylight, and automatic; and ISO selection includes ISO 100, ISO 200, ISO 400, ISO 1600, ISO 3200, ISO 4000, as well as automatic.
