Video: Independence Day Fireworks in Tampere (Recorded on Nokia 808 PureView and Nokia Lumia 920)

I saw this on twitter last night – I think it was a recording of the Finland Independence Day fireworks as shot on the Nokia 808 PureView.

Listen out for the stereo sound goodness. I think every now and again the right mic gets covered up but other than that, the video sounds and obviously looks great.

Whilst we’re there, here’s one by the Nokia Lumia 920. I think someone needs to sort out the continuous focus hunting. It’s great that CAF is superfast, but at the same time, it produces an annoying focus pulsing.



I don’t know what camera this is but listen out for the bass or lack of it in comparison with the 808.

        I’d say it’s “Some Dumb F**k.” Bollocks to him.

        That PureView tech has brought us these fantastic looking looking videos and that Rich Recording has brought us fantastic sound. No other company Brings It like Nokia does.

    Well you can always turn continuous autofocus OFF if you know you won’t be filming anything that is closer than 1-2 meters -> perfect focus all the time
