Thurs 07.11.13 – And today was the BIG day, the Nokia Zoom ReInvented launch and announcement / demo of the Nokia Lumia 1020 41-megapixel Windows Phone 8 camera phone.
The Zoom ReInvented event was held at pier 94 on the Hudson River in New York City and started nice and early with the announcement and presentation of the Nokia Lumia 1020 by Nokia’s CEO Stephen Elop with help from the imaging team’s Kristina Björknäs and Juha Alakarhu.
After a very spectacular announcement, the back of the stage was opened for everyone to proceed down the length of the pier to the demonstration area, lunch, as well as meeting and session rooms. At each turn through the demonstration area were Nokians with Nokia Lumia 1020s to show you and engage about the device. Also along the sides were small rooms with more detailed technical displays and demos on the sound, lens, and navigating capacities.
The afternoon of Zoom ReInvented was taken up with visiting each display, meeting and talking with folks, as well as attending sessions on applications for the Nokia 1020, technical details of the imaging capabilities by members of the Nokia Imaging team, and a blogger’s session.
Within 20 minutes of the event starting, I was very happy to find out that the new Nokia Pro Camera app would have the ability to set one’s own shutter speed (!!!!), ISO, White Balance, and manual focus from close-up to infinity in a very lovely to use interface. My biggest excitements of the day were the announcement of manual shutter speed and seeing that there is a place for a wrist strap on the device, as well as attending the developer/partner session on what applications are being developed with the new announced Nokia Imaging SDK (Oggl).
Big thanks to Nokia and Nokia US for the invitation to attend the Zoom ReInvented Nokia Lumia 1020 launch event.
