National Geographic Captures Rio de Janeiro With the Lumia 1020 & 1520
Having photographed the Grand Canyon with the Lumia 1020 back in August, National Geographic photographer Stephen Alvarez has continued his challenge to capture the Seven Natural wonders of the World using Nokia Lumia, this time going to Rio de Janeiro.
This time using the Lumia 1520 as well as the 1020 Stephen says:
“These Nokia Lumia devices started out great and just continue to get better. The 1520 has a really big display, so I could hold it down low or up high and frame shots in positions that I’d never be able to achieve with a DSLR.”
In the video below the award winning photographer talks about the in depth settings found on the two devices, and capabilities usually only seen on “high end DSLR’s” but is also impressed with “what the cameras do by themselves”.
Stephen takes you on a first-hand tour of the Nokia Lumia 1520’s features; sharing his own creative and technical tips for how to get the best shots. He’ll demonstrate how you can control focus, shutter speed, exposure and white balance just like you would with a DSLR camera. The speed of the 1520 also allows you to capture shots that were once impossible to achieve with a mobile phone.
