One of the qualities of the Nokia Lumia 900 that I singled out in my favorable review of the device was its camera, which I described as "special." In the slideshow above, I've included the photos I snapped that helped me arrive at that conclusion.

The most impressive features of the camera sensor are its depth of color and its macro mode, which are reproduced in several of the slides above.

As I said in the review, I am an unabashedly awful photographer, and the fact that these pictures turned out looking as good as they did is remarkable. The picture of the dead tree was literally the first picture I took with the Lumia 900's rear camera.
