Vertigo-Inducing Video Put Together from 41 Photos Taken with the Lumia 1020

Creating video from photos isn’t a new idea. Be it stop-motion or some form of time-lapse, we see it all the time. The creation above by filmmaker Paul Trillo is a little bit different though. In 41 photos he takes you down 41 New York City blocks, mesmerizing you right into the sunrise. Read more…

Nokia Claims the Lumia 1020 is ‘The First Smartphone to Put the Camera First’

A few months ago, an Apple commercial touted the iPhone as “the world’s most popular camera.” Nokia’s new ad for the Lumia 1020 takes a less statistical approach: the company is admitting that the 41-megapixel behemoth is first a camera, and then a phone. Read more…

Nokia ‘EOS’ Product Photos Leak, Might Make Landfall Later This Month

About a month ago, we got our first look at what is rumored to be the next big thing from Nokia camera-wise. Codenamed the ‘EOS,’ a few sources leaked IRL photos of the upcoming smartphone, showing off the bulging PureView camera module on the back and encouraging many consumers who believed that this would be Nokia’s stateside version of the company’s 808 PureView.

Now, we have a couple of leaked low-res product shots to corroborate those IRL images, and a potential release date that has the phone making an official appearance before month’s end. Read more…

New Ad for Nokia’s 808 PureView Shot Using the Phone Itself

Nokia recently put together this ad for the new 808 PureView — their 41-megapixel monster of a camera phone — that they claim was shot using only the smartphone itself. Cramming too many pixels on too small a sensor rarely leads to good results, but sample shots and video in the ad don’t look bad at all. Of course there’s probably a “real-life results will vary” tag in fine print somewhere that we’re missing; but where the pixel race is concerned Nokia have definitely proved that they are winning.

Unfortunately, as we’ve mentioned before, Nokia aren’t going to sell the phone in North America.

Nokia Unleashes a Game-Changing 41-Megapixel “PureView” Camera Phone

Nokia dropped a bomb on the cameraphone market today by introducing its new 808 PureView phone — a phone that is capable of capturing 41-megapixel photos. The native resolution of the phone (16:9) produces 38-megapixel images measuring 7152×5368. The phone also allows you to capture 5-megapixel images by condensing every seven pixels into one, which dramatically reduces noise and improves image quality. Other features include a 4-inch screen, 16GB of built-in storage, a Carl Zeiss f/2.4 lens, lossless digital zoom (i.e. cropping a photo out of the giant image), and HD video recording. It’ll hit store shelves in May at a price of €450 (~$600).
