Watch 50 Lumia 1020s form the Lumia Arc of Wonder to shoot this impressive bullet-effect video

The Lumia Arc of Wonder, made from 50 1020s


The Nokia Lumia 1020 has consistently scored on top of our camera ratings with its excellent 41-megapixel PureView camera with ZEISS lens, and pixel oversampling technology, but what if you could film using more than just one Lumia 1020? Renowned NYC director Paul Trillo collaborated with Nokia to show what awesome things can be achieved with some creative thinking and a whopping 50 Lumia 1020s.

Trillo used the 50 handsets to create a bullet-styled video, and to achieve this effect he shaped the devices into a ‘Lumia Arc of Wonder’. The construction allows all those creative video shots you’d see below.

We’ve already seen HTC use the same bullet-effect trick to showcase the possibilities of the camera on the HTC One, but then it used an even bigger rig of 130 HTC phones. This rig, however, is different in its shape and the video that it shoots differs a lot in its creative angle. Take a look below.



And below, you can see the similar effort from HTC to promote its One last year.

Microsoft have so many of these phones kicking around in storage and in the stores. It only makes sense to use them for something.

Lol I have a good paid job, I also drive a taxi and work for 30hours aweek plus 37 hours official administration job. The job I do gives me 15 minutes spare free time within the hour to visit PhoneArena every hour. Thats why I don't use ,.!"':;/?)(+-*&%$#@~`|•{} for grammar and forming a sentence and structure Me and my wife both work. Combined income €52.000 Euro's a year. I could afford to buy good quality designer brand's I'm 38, not a young kid like you at uni or college

Why do you feel compelled to explain yourself to anyone here? You owe NokiaFTW no explanation.

I didn't ask for your life data and where and why do you work. Your comments don't show maturity. I don't think you're 38. I bet you used to still live off your parents money when you were my age. I work part time and study as well. That's how I afford my gadgets, not like a dumb and immature 38 year old trolling on a tech site!

Well, to be perfectly honest, I don't ever recall reading articles where a Windows Phone 8 has sold out of inventory. Maybe you could provide one? You know... just to humor us trolls?

No such thing as NokiaWP. Nokia made the phone before this had happened.

This really demonstrates how bad the cameras are at taking a shot at the same time as they should, great demonstration of the bad quality and unreliability of these phones. ... " " ...
