Check out this really cool video shot entirely on the Nokia Lumia 1020. Looks very professional, no? It’s awesome to see Nokia continually using their own gear to make their promos.

The slomo bits look cool. It’s not an inherent feature of the 1020 but it’s nice to see 30FPS slowed down still looking ok.

Update: This was shot by @claudiuvoicu –


It’s going to have to be the ease of use and size. It’s a phone with an amazing camera bundled inside it. We had it inches away from the water, jumped around rooftops with it and held it out while quad biking – things I’d probably not do with my DSLR or RED. The wide-angle lens proved great for capturing the action from any angle we could think of, and once zoomed in you’d get some nice macro shots with smooth DoF too. Even the OIS performed better than expected when we were speeding down bumpy roads on quad bikes.

The 1020 makes shooting really fun and easy so the biggest challenge was probably waking up early enough to first recce the rooftop location and then filming there at an even earlier time the following day. None of us were getting much sleep and we still had to travel a fair bit on our quad bikes. We kinda forgot about all of that once we found our rooftop and witnessed the sun rise.

Nokia asks Claudiu what he’d like to see in slow motion. Is this a hint of a focus at slow motion capabilities in the 1020/Procam?

cheers Alvester for the info.
