Lumia 950's 4K video feature allegedly showcased in sample clip

Lumia 1020 remains a part of folklore among Lumia fan -- many of whom still long for the appearance of its spiritual successor. Despite not boasting as many megapixels, the main snapper of the Lumia 950 looks a force to be reckoned with, and YouTube channel videotistik has offered what it claims is a glimpse of the feature in action.Since way back when it was a Nokia entity, Lumia has been synonymous with quality cameras. The 41-megapixel shooter of the
The 4K video runs through a sequence of nature shots, capturing the early fall in all of its glory. There's no real word on how the operators of the channel managed to get hold of the Lumia 950 and capture this clip, so we're taking this with the cautionary pinch of salt. If this is the real deal, though, then it's certainly an encouraging sign to those who plan on buying Lumia 950 when it does drop.

This is seriously good. No complaints there. I still wish they were available through T-Mobile and I would be set.

This video is looking just normal, like other 4k videos. Nothing ground breaking

I said the same thing when I pushed play. Then I viewed it on YouTube and changed the quality to 4K. Holy s**t. This looks amazing. This is not like any other 4K video on a phone that I have seen. Too bad it's on a WP10 eco system :(

What's too bad? Continuum alone is grounds alone for it being the best, along with best cameras and top notch Xbox live / games. Unless you're one of those people who use their phone as means to social status or are driven by social media, or your life revolves around apps, those are the only reasons I see people not getting a windows phone.

I use a Lumia 1520 today and its the only phone that I have had for more than one year. I change phone every year and I'm really happy with this phone. My phone that soon will be two years old are as fast as it was when I got it. Tell me one phone that don't get slower over time? That's what I like about Microsoft. they optimize their software for the budget phones so they automatically fly on the flagship ones. Since I don't have Facebook, Insta, Snapchat, Twitter and all those social media apps. It doesn't bother me. BUT I understand that young people will NEVER buy a Windows Phone since Snapchat isn't there. My brother, my sister and ALL of their friends use Snapchat ALL the time. They even dont texts anymore. The whole world are using Snapchat. That's the only app I want to Windows Phone. And that's not for me, its because it will give the platform a good boost. I think Microsoft are playing their cards right with universal apps and one OS on every windows device. Imagine Snapchat develop ONE app that can work and sync between all your windows devices. That would be very good for Microsoft. Heck, I would pay for the coding my self if I were Microsoft. Just bring the app. When WhatsApp, Viber and all those become Universal. The windows platform will be a killer. Specially a phone connected to a monitor wirelessly trough Contiuum. So I totally understand the app problem. You cant depend only on enterprise. You must attract the young people. They are the ones who follow the herd.

I'm a huge Windows fan and I'll be buying the new 950 for me and my SO, however I wonder if the amazingness is simply the features of 4k and not specifically the hardware. Either way, the fact that this is possible on a phone is still amazing. Like at least MS didn't seem to slouch on the camera. I think we'd need a DXO or some sort of scientific test to see how/if it's different than competitive products.

You can still have terrible 4k, from the video there is not much frame loss (nothing really slows down, large issue with some other phones), not much jitter, they didnt move quick enough to see if there was any rolling shutter issues. If it was really a 950, it'll be a damn good shooter.

Too wobbly for my taste. Stabilization not really better then on any other Android flagship. But yes I admit, it looks nice thou.

Seems like they finally fixed the jumpiness of the autofocus in video.

The video is vivid, but I thought the colors looked faded or washed. Looks good with the golden/yellows, but many of the others not so much. I wanted to see it side by side ns the S6 Edge+/Note 5.
