Microsoft puts out three videos showing the photography prowess of the Lumia 1020

The Nokia Lumia 1020 is quite an impressive smartphone. It is a niche device though and it won’t sell bazillions of units like the Lumia 520. That doesn’t negate its usefulness as being a flagship device for the Windows Phone platform. But that doesn’t mean Microsoft, Nokia, and AT&T won’t keep pushing it. Case in point, these three videos from Microsoft highlighting the 41 million pixels you get.

These three videos show off the photo prowess of the Lumia 1020 in short clips that are perfect for both web and television ads. Check them out.

Football

Shark attack

  • Skateboard. Love them all but that has to be fav
  • Loved the football one!
  • I'm sure you did and where are you from? It just shows how bad Microsoft's marketing team is most americans don't even watch soccer!
  • Yea and most of the world don't watch American football they watch more soccer
  • I'd say it's regional. In the pacific northwest, soccer is pretty big. As long as they stick that ad in an area that makes sense...
  • Ummm but i was watching soccer last night one "ESPN en español" which is the ESPN channel In Spanish and I saw the soccer one go on like twice
  • So... THAT makes microsoft "bad"?
    Seriously, that's pretty dumb. 
  • I am from India, and I can absolutely not stand football (or Soccer, as they call it in some parts), being an avid Cricket fan. But I do understand that particular ad is directed at a different demograpghics- Europe including the UK and South America, I would guess. Even the spectators that they showed looked like they were speaking in the British accent. So, I am not overly critical of this ad.
  • The spectators in the ad were Europeans. In Eurpope we watch lots of football, and the accent was not british, sounded like Danish.
  • +920
  • Football ad is fantastic. I hope they put them on TV.
    Girl in third video is gorgeous :)
  • Don't like her. Bur thats the fun about taste and humans! :)
  • You want to taste humans?
  • Tastes just like chicken...... Apparently!!!!!!
  • Be careful, don't try to be a cannibal because of that taste!
  • Chickens taste like humans more like.
  • I've seen the auarium ad on TV in the US
  • What's with the IOS vs Windows Phone video? Can't locate it via my phone. Was it taken down?
  • It's advertising provided by Youtube.
  • Within the wpc app?
  • Yep.
  • creepy diver :D
  • Photo bomb it
  • Dammit, vids haven't been working through the mobile app for a few days now.
  • Working fine here. Which option are you using?
  • All of 'em.
  • Install either mytube or metrotube.
  • Thanx for the tip. MetroTube is already installed. I may have to uninstall/reinstall one or both. Just hesitant because my push notifications are working great for the WPC app. :/
  • Cool..!! All videos are awesome...
  • I see the idea behind the videos but they are a bit short, kind of like a cooking show that only shows you the kitchen and then the food but not how it got there or why the chef is the best.
  • ^THIS. Exactly my thoughts too!
  • When they are that short it usually means they will be aired on TV
  • FIFA will ban 1020 from entering the stadium.
  • Or the reverse, they will sponsor Lumia 1020 on their league.
  • kkkkkkk you are propably right, they hate technology and advances....
  • Can't watch the 4th vid (wp8 vs ios 7) because of the google automated queries thing. But the rest of the vids were nice.
  • +1 its just lame to have to search for it!
  • Man. It's like a rare thing! +1020.
  • I like the shark one...
  • Omg did anyone else notice the updated plants vs zombies tile at the end of the second video??? Am I the only one who cares for this game?
  • No you're not. Good observation.:)
  • BTW, the NFL game last night featured multiple ads for the Lumia 1020. I was proud! Nice job MS.
  • Why are they playing Soccer in the "Football" commercial?
  • Because this game is called football everywhere outside North America and Nokia is European company.
  • You're putting me on.
  • First Nokia, now Microsoft.
    I think it's time to switch to iPhone, because i need a SMARTPHONE not a camera.
    2Mpix is more then enough in smartphone.
  • ^ Super *facepalm* ^
  • Dont listen to him. He's just a troll
  • i like the football video
  • Love all of them.... But I am still hung over from the Nokia Pure Motion HD video from before! That was pure Magic... Hope it airs on TV...
  • Football is great!
    Vamos ganhar Fogo!!!!!!!!!
  • Here on my phone the 4th video is called "iPhone 5 vs. Blackberry Z10" (and it can't be played, either).
  • I hope we see more videos like this for Nokia phones. I have the Lumia 925 and I have to say im very impressed with it. I have had the HD7, Titan, Lumia 900 and now the 925 but I have to say the look and feel of the 925 is the best of any phone I have owned and its looks make it stand out against the Iphone and Samsung galaxy s4. The bissges issue Nokia have is that not a lot of people think of there phone when it comes to buying a new one and this is what Nokia need to get across to people as I now know a few people with a WP and I have yet to have any of them say they have had issues with it where they did say that with there Android and Iphones.
     
    I hope the Lumia 925 and the 1020 can start to eat into the high end markets the way the 520 is eating into the low end markets.
  • Soccer n skating ones !!!!!!!
  • football, i can feel their rage due to bad calls lol
