Nokia has established a new benchmark in smartphone imaging with the arrival of the Nokia Lumia 1020, boasting a second generation 41 megapixel sensor. With Nokia’s innovative PureView technology, including optical image stabilization, the device is able to produce some of the sharpest images possible by any digital camera. Using a new feature called dual capture, the Nokia Lumia 1020 simultaneously takes a high resolution 38 megapixel image for endless editing opportunities, and creates a 5 megapixel picture that is easy to share to social networks.
Adding further professional capabilities and additional battery life, Nokia announced the new Nokia Camera Grip. This is an accessory that complements device features usually reserved for stand-alone cameras, like the Nokia Lumia 1020′s built-in xenon flash and mechanical shutter. The Nokia Camera Grip also has a tripod mount, and is expected to be available this month for an estimated retail price of $79 USD.
The Nokia Lumia 1020 will arrive first on U.S. shores exclusively with AT&T, with sales expected to start on July 26 at a price of $299.99 USD on a two-year contract. The Nokia Lumia 1020 is then expected to arrive in China and key European markets this quarter. The Nokia Lumia 1020 will be available in yellow, white and black.
ATL LETS GO!!!!!
After much hype (and a little delay) the 200-foot SkyView Atlanta Ferris wheel now has an opening date: Tuesday, July 16. There will be a noon ribbon-cutting ceremony prior to the first gondola’s circumnavigation, and SkyView spokesman Jason Evans says he expects a big crowd.
This morning, the still-being-assembled wheel looked like a giant Pac-Man. But the crew hoped to install the final seven spokes by today’s end, completing SkyView’s frame. At a media event this morning, Evans compared building the Ferris wheel to playing with the “world’s biggest Lego set,” as behind him workers installed steel pins the size of small children into the massive structure.
Every inch of SkyView will be covered in LED lights—one million to be exact. The lights’ colors will correspond with holiday festivities.
Here’s a good piece of news for those of us who aren’t fond of heights: each gondola has a panic button. If you get anxious while riding, operators will bring you down immediately. I still have some hesitations, but I’m getting excited to give this wheel a whirl.
“OLDBOY is a provocative, visceral thriller that follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement. When he is inexplicably released, he embarks on an obsessive mission to discover who orchestrated his bizarre and torturous punishment only to find he is still trapped in a web of conspiracy and torment. Co-starring Elizabeth Olsen and Sharlto Copley, OLDBOY was directed by Spike Lee, from a script by Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend, The Cell, Thor). The film was produced by Roy Lee, Doug Davison and Nathan Kahane.”
