While many have demonstrated the features of the phone and its hyper-pixel camera, Dr Mark Li-cheng Wu and Dr John Paul Graff recently authored an examination of body tissue to study diseases in a paper published in Histopathology where they outlined how they benefited from the use of the Lumia 1020.

Employing the 1020’s lossless zoom on the phone they attached it to a state of the art microscope and ended up with more detail than provided by the microscope itself. Both doctors are considered experts in the field of photomicrography.

The advantages of working with the Lumia 1020

In addition to the staggering detail employed by the setup Dr Graff explained the other advantages of working with the Lumia 1020, “One of the big advantages you also have using a Microsoft-based operating system in hospitals (at least here in America), is that most of the computer networks, wherever you go, are Microsoft Windows based. The Lumia interplays with everything very smoothly so you can send files to OneDrive or secured shared drives quickly.”

The phone, according to the two researchers, offers speed when it comes to image capture, and saving and sending photos. Prior to employing the Lumia, the two were forced to work with proprietary software that costs a good deal of money and wastes their valuable time. The two were also impressed with the image stabilization offered by the Lumia 1020 as they worked with it over the last 10 months.

Not perfect but very good

Because of the image stabilizer, the two were able to hold and shoot photos through the microscope’s ocular rather than having to employ a fixed setup to capture the images they required. While for the most part the two were quite satisfied, they did suggest to Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V) (Microsoft) to improve the battery life, the capture rate, and believe that future Lumia models should include a MicroSD card slot in order to store more high-res images.
