sample 1020Quick heads up. GSMArena linked to this channel which features a hundred video samples it seems from the Nokia Lumia 1020.

I’ve only watched a few and don’t have time to assess it at the moment as I have to dash out to get my mac fixed :(. Anyway, I’m immediately liking the lack of pulsing continuous AF which annoyed me about my 920. Not sure if this unit is proto.

The channel is here:

The stabilisation looked great. I asked one of the Nokia peeps if it was better than the one in the 920, which they weren’t too quick to say yes. NokConv has a recent post saying it’s the next gen and looking at these videos the stabilisation looks great, and to me, better than the 920.

GSMA is a fan too:

The video stabilization looked top notch and performed just as well when we took the Lumia 1020 for a spin ourselves. We are also pleased to report that the blurring along the right side of the frame, which is visible on the samples wasn’t present on our unit so it is definitely due to a imperfect prototype unit.

Just like the still images, the videos produced by the Lumia 1020 are beyond the capabilities of any other smartphone on the market. The detail levels are top notch, the colors are extremely pleasing and the dynamic range simply cannot be achieved with a smaller sensor. The 4x zoom when recording 1080p video is a more than welcome bonus, too.
