Helpful on-screen assistance lets you select the animated area of your picture and easily create and edit a cinemagraph.

    • PhotoBeamer: PhotoBeamer is an innovative and easy way to show your pictures on any screen. Point your Nokia Lumia at any screen displaying www.photobeamer.com and enjoy your photos anywhere with family and friends. It's a mobile projector that's always at hand.

    Incredible Video using Nokia Lumia 1020 Windows Phone

    This came in to my email box.

    This video is incredible.  I am sure the new Nokia Tablet will also have similar performance.


    With the breakthrough combination of a 41-megapixel sensor and Optical Image Stabilization, it allows you to capture details like no other smartphone camera in the world. _ I agree.
