Nokia Lumia 1020 Takes to the Air

Nokia Lumia 1020 Lens Close

Since Nokia launched its Lumia 1020 handset earlier this year, the firm has done a great deal to show off the capabilities of the device’s 41-megapixel camera. Along with countless sample images being spread across the internet a music video was produced with the handset, showing off the incredible imaging prowess that it boasts.

Now, Nokia has taken a different angle and attached its leading device to a flying drone, taking to the skies across several cities in Poland. The resulting footage shows off Wroclaw, Krakow and others in brilliant detail as the drone flies above them.

The level of detail that the camera catches is outstanding and while the footage does have some haziness around the most brightly lit areas the results are truly impressive, as they usually are where the Lumia 1020 is concerned.

Whether this same focus on camera capabilities will continue under Microsoft’s stewardship of Nokia remains to be seen, but there’s no doubt that the Finnish firm has created one of the best camera phones we’ve ever seen. You can take a look at a video of the Lumia 1020′s flight over Krakow below.
