Nokia Camera Sculpture Freezes New York City Moments In Time
30,000 images stitched together showcase NYC life with Matrix-style slo-mo photography.
To showcase the Lumia 1020's 41-Megapixel camera, filmmaker Paul Trillo teamed up with Nokia to put together a video that showcases New York city in “bullet-time,” just like in The Matrix. Using a 300-pound contraption made up of 50 smartphones, more than 30,000 images were captured across Manhattan, including areas such as Union Square, Allen St and Central Park West.
Known as the “Multi Lumia Arc of Wonder,” the team used a Microsoft Surface tablet to control the shoot, along with a special app which was designed specifically for the Windows 8 mobile platform. The rig was able to capture a wide variety of “Living Moments” throughout the city, many of which were stitched together for the final video.
