See how Clean Bandit used a Lumia 930 Bullet Time rig in their new music video
One of Microsoft's latest pairings sees British group, Clean Bandit, teaming up with Lumia for various promotional activities. One of the more amazing ones is the video for latest single, Stronger, which throws no less than 50 (yes, 50!) Lumia 930s into the mix on a Bullet Time rig. And the effects are amazing.
The phones required a custom app, built by Microsoft, to do the task at hand. The 50 phones were all joined together on a curved rig and were used to capture freeze frames, light paintings and more. With the latest update the Lumia 930 is capable of shooting 4K video, and Clean Bandit is doing something truly remarkable. If a little out of the reach of the common man.
Check out how they did it and what resulted in the behind the scenes video above. Pretty cool, right?

You are still comparing/matching it with and iPhone..!! Shows that ye still think that the iPhone tops te charts..!!
It works really well for moving shots. Lots of Lumix, Nikon, Red and other cameras on set but everyone wants to play with my 1020. I do wish the 1020 supported external sound. That would be awesome. A movie I just wrapped up filming actually features a scene with me using my yellow Lumia1020 to call one of the main characters. You get to see lots of different types of equipment on a movie set.
(I use my 1020 for cycle touring - trying to get a steadyshot when cycling is not easy. I reckon the monoprice rig could be just what I need!).
