Astonishing video of a tornado formation recorded with a Nokia Lumia 925
Tornados are no joke, especially for a lot of people in the US this time of year. This video, posted yesterday to YouTube, already has 40K views, and it’s easy to see why. The footage shows the formation of a tornado at very close range. While the video quality is outstanding, it’s the filename that caught the attention of our tipster: WP 20140526 001.
Anyone with a Windows Phone knows that’s how videos are labeled. Combined with the high quality of the video (including superb audio and video stabilization) and it doesn’t take a prodigy to figure out this is probably a high-end Lumia of some sort.
Sit back and check it out, though be warned, there is some NSFW language involved (after all, it is a tornado!).
Update 9:30 PM ET: The video was shot with a Nokia Lumia 925, as confirmed by the video owner.
Thanks, Mike H., for the tip!

That tiny pic site is also cool for easily showing pictures.. It's actually easier than OneDrive..
Very impressive to see that tornado so close up though.
It's not like I violated his privacy btw since he has those pics in public availability. (This reminds me of that FBI character in criminal minds who does internet/database checks... LOL).
