Freak out! Nile Rodgers and Chic, recorded with the Nokia Lumia 1020 and 808 PureView

Nile Rodgers was about one meter away from me… Yesterday evening in Hilversum I enjoyed a fantastic concert of Nile and his band Chic.

Early Rich Recording with Nokia 808 PureView

I won’t go as far as to say it’s the first, but it must be one of the first concert recordings made with the Nokia 808 PureView – and many more will follow. Not only does the Nokia 808 PureView boast a 41MP camera, Rich Recording is a impressive technical improvement as well. I’ve shown
