Nokia's impressive Lumia 920 hasn't exactly sent the cash registers ringing, accounting for a fraction of the 4.4 million Lumia Windows Phone smartphone sales in Q4 2012. However, it's camera is definitely worth bragging about.

The Lumia 920 has been perennially out of stock, leading consumers and tech pundits to believe that it's due to high demand, but the recent figures released by Nokia would prove otherwise and point to low inventory instead.

However, the sales figures notwithstanding, this WP8 smartphone boasts some impressive features that makes it one of the best high-end handsets around. The Lumia 920's 8.7-megapixel primary camera with BSI sensor and PureView technology and Carl Zeiss optics is one of the best in the business, and impresses with its low-light performance and optical image stabilization.

It seems Norwegian filmmaker Anders seems to agree as he recently shot a music video for the song "Reach For The Sky" as the band performed live at their studio in Copenhagen, Denmark from a Nokia Lumia 920.

"Nowadays, you can shoot some incredible nice videos with even your cellphone! I was lucky to borrow the new Nokia Lumia 920 to test the camera and see how well it performed when shooting video," noted Anders.

The video does not use any strong lights as the behind the scenes footage reveals. However, the sound was recorded by several microphones, and not the phone, and added during post production.

"Normally a camera would need a lot of light to make nice pictures and videos. In this video we didn't use any strong lights (see behind the scenes for more info!), but since the camera in the Nokia Lumia 920 has a nice Carl Zeiss lens with aperture at f2 and the new pureView technology, it was exciting to test it out. I shot everything with both a steadycam and handheld, since the camera got a image stabilization inside the lens," opined Anders.

The filming for 5 minutes 18 seconds long music video and the editing was all wrapped up in just 24 hours. The end result is pretty neat, especially taking into account it's shot on a smartphone.
