Take better shots with the Nokia Lumia 1020, captured in latest video

We've already seen Nokia announce the new Lumia 1020, as well as AT&T releasing details (and videos) on when we can all expect to see the new Windows Phone launch in the US. Nokia has now published the above video, showing off the camera capabilities of the handset with a sweet beat and awesome effects.

So, who's getting one?

Take better shots with the Nokia Lumia 1020, captured in latest video

When I click on "native" YouTube option to watch video, it opens metro tube and doesn't play anything. Anyone else have this issue?

Same for me...
Youtube open in Youtube, native open in Youtube and metrotube open in Youtube...
No i'm not touching wrong..
Mine is lumia 920

i'm having similar issues watching videos.  for me, any option i choose launched metrotube, and it almost never actually plays the video.  i have a Lumia 928

I'm choosing native in the middle but metro tube opens. I click on metro and the video opens fine. I haven't clicked on "YouTube".

Means that our little youtube hack didn't work so it's fallen back on the apps. The metro tube option in that list not working is a bug I've passed on to them :)

When I click on metro tube it opens it fine. When I click on native, it also opens metro tube but the video doesn't play. 920

No options work for me. I press metro tube and it doesn't open neither does the youtube app. When i press native it opens metro tube and youtube app options. When i press any of them they still don't play. So i just open the article in the browser.

Looks like an amazing phone but I wonder how many people really care about a 41MP camera. If you look at the reviews for the Camera360 app they are almost all "this is amazing - it's replaced the default camera for me" even though that app only outputs images in 3MP. Either people don't realize or that's acceptable to them as they are only sharing online. Obviously there is a market for a high quality camera phone but it's maybe not a big as Nokia would like it to be. Getting the official Instagram for Windows phone would be a bigger deal.

Well for me, I see it as finally a spec that trumps both android and iOS. People seem to like having the biggest this, the most that etc. so blowing the competition out of the water with a camera like this can only help boost WP and Nokia sales.

You are right, but what Nokia has essentially brought out here is a totally new segment of phones.
Also by the popularity of Instagram and the likes, people clearly like to play with their pictures and that's what i think is the hook of Lumia 1020. Something they very well showed on the demos. 
it goes much further than filters, there's some real benefits to the customers on the hardware level that can't be replicated on software. In short the play value is pretty astonishing on this one and Nokia needs to make that message clear.

It used to just play without doing anything, hit video and it asked for SD or HD playback then it played. Now it asks for a player, I select any of them it would tell me to go to the app store and download an app, even though I had YouTube HD installed. I uninstalled it and installed metro tube, now it works when I hit metro tube, haven't tried the other two.

Want this phone so bad. Love my 920 and all, but... Y'know, this would've been handy while walking around the Taste of Chicago yesterday, had to carry my Nex C3 with me. It's not a large camera but one device instead of two would be ideal for the type of photos I'm capable of taking (as in, I'm not that great). :)
