I film with my phone and.. ive got an upgrade coming up soon so im just curious about what phone to get for filming. The Nokia Lumnia 1020 has a 41mp camera and HD and blabla, and the Samsung Galaxy s4 has a 13mp camera. I currently use the Galaxy s3 so either of these is already an upgrade from where im at. I just want to know if the Lumnia 1020 is worth getting over the S4 for filming purposes and if its compatible with the removeable fisheye lenses (the ones that you stick a magnetic ring around your camera and the fisheye magnets to it)? Any help is needed!

Unless you are printing wall sized posters I don't see why you would need 41 megapixels.

I'd just get a little camera to film with.

dude you can get cameras on ebay for as little as 30 bucks(there is a sony knockoff that shoots hd and has the threads for lenses and costs about 30 bucks) which is way less than a new phone. I had it for 2 years but never really used it so i sold it to my friend who uses it all the time.

Whats wrong with your phone?

so new battery and a charger? That is alot of money to drop for 20 dollars worth of stuff to pay for it. and it not even like ur phone is old or anything...



THe s5 would be better than the nokia because the of the windows os... it sucks... BUT there are alot of photographers and filmers who use the nokia for full projects...

i have heard somewhere (i cant find the article anymore) that the s5 shoots in 4k video too vs the normal 1080p of the nokia

Bought a new charger and it didn't work, and my battery worked fine in my friends phone. To get my phone insured costs $200 (some bullshit.) So its cheaper just to use my upgrade.

And yes the s5 shoots in 4k and im pretty sure has an optical stabilizer. I was considering the LG G2 for its Stabilizer and the Note 3 for its 4k, but it appears I maybe able to get both.

If your upgrade is going to have you stay around phones such as the S4, I urge you to look at the side by side reviews of the LG G2. The G2 beats the S4 in almost every aspect including the camera. Plus, the screen is a bit bigger too. Worth looking into anyway.

After some research I did add that to my list, due to its stabilizer. But the video quality is about the same as my s3 so im kinda iffy about it.

go with whichever one is cheaper...as much as you try overall it is still being filmed with a phone and will be very similar either way...and they both have downfalls... the s5 has a better os but the nokia is overall a better camera..

Yeah if you can afford to hold out, it looks like the S5 is the way to go. As far as the S4 and G2, I was just looking at side by side comparisons through different tech sites. It seems like the slow-mo is not for sure on the G2 because I've seen some that said it was, and found others that said it will be on the G2 Pro which will also feature 4K video.

Harry main also has a GS4 edit on YouTube that looks legit..

Right now I guess im mostly looking for an android phone with 4k, Optimal Stabilizer, and a decent amount of megapixels. Most of them appear to only have one or the other. The G2 Pro and Galaxy s5 sound promising but I doubt I can afford them.

Megapixels have nothing to do with video and also, you can't upload 4k video anywhere at the moment so you'll have to downscale it to 1080p/720p anyway.

The only reason that simone barraco vid looks decent is because of the gear used to stabilize the phone, and the editing. I have a galaxy s3 and the quality is more than good enough for the average person. All phone videos are gonna look roughly the same unless you edit the footage, or use something like a tripod or glidecam setup which is stupid for a phone. (In some of those nokia lumina bmx vids, you can see the filmer holding a glidecam rig with the phone. looks fucking retarded)
