This promo shows off what’s great about camera phones and the 1020 in particular. Whilst dedicated bigger cameras are awesome (I love my 60D) their heft, their bulk, the set up time means that I can’t really do an on the go spur of the moment quick snap.
In this situation the guy with the bigger camera has to set up whilst the one with the Nokia Lumia 1020 can just take a picture. But here the guy with the big camera already has his camera out. A more ideal scenario would be showing off the awesome big camera first but then realising that you can’t carry it everywhere like you can with the 1020. Just keep showing the bigger camera in the office, stuck in the office or in a drawer or whatever and the other guy thinking “this would have been a great shot if I had a camera with me” whilst the 1020 user gets these shots.
If only there was also a quicker start up time with ProCam eh?
What irks me though is the title of this video. Why on earth Nokia France is putting Windows Phone first in the title when the camera capabilities has NOTHING to do with Windows Phone. Guys, please wait until the MS deal is over before you start worshiping/surrendering to your new bosses.
