After the release Nokia Lumia 1020, Nokia has demonstrated the imaging capabilities of the device in various ways right from National Geographic association to creating New York 41X41 short film. The latest way Nokia took to demonstrate Lumia 1020’s camera performance is by a organizing a proper fashion studio photo shoot with their camera expert Ari Partinen and his colleague Marko Saari. Read about their experience below.

But the interesting part was how they used the built-in xenon flash on the Lumia 1020 to trigger the main flashes, to allow them to capture the movement we can see in the sample pictures (below).
Ari explained the flash part in detail as below,

This made sure the main flashes were synchronized perfectly with the moment we pressed the shutter key on the Lumia 1020.”
“We could have just used bright lights to illuminate the subject and not challenge ourselves with the flash synchronization. But for us, it was important we could capture the movement in
