The Lumia 1020 is to smart phone photography as a great mechanical keyboard is to a journalist – absolutely necessary and the best device to use for the job.

There simply is no peer – 41MP; Zeiss, 6 lens f/2.2 optics; optical image stabilisation; PureView colour; and Xenon flash; all backed by the absolute best camera control apps. It is hard to take a bad shot – heaven forbid. The Windows Phone it cohabits with is no slouch either.

Probably because they have too much time on their hands waiting for the Microsoft merger to complete Nokia engineers put 50 of these snappers into a mobile rig called a ‘Multi Lumia Arc of Wonder’ to create a bullet effect shoot.

Pioneering filmmaker Paul Trillo said “We used a Microsoft Surface tablet to control the shoot and a special app which was designed for the Windows 8 mobile platform. We captured a total of 30,000 images across Manhattan, including Union Square, Allen Street, and Central Park West.”

The cameras were all remote controlled via the dedicated camera shutter switch on the phones body.
