Lumia 920 optical stabilization demo remade, now with no fake footage
Remember the Nokia Lumia 920 stabilization video demo? Yep, that very same one that was not actually shot on the Lumia 920, but instead on a professional video camera. You might remember it for the gorgeous blond girl riding her bike somewhere in suburban Finland, and now some enthusiasts in Russia have decided to remake the demonstration and shoot it with a real Nokia Lumia 920 this time.

The blond girl riding the bike is now replaced by another bike rider - a cute brunette in a more urban environment. But that - presumably - is not what matters most.

What matters most is the quality of the footage. And good news is there is little that’s changed there. The optical stabilization works perfectly well in the video, and you’d find it hard to find a huge difference when you compare it to the original. Kudos, Nokia, for achieving this on a smartphone camera.

And then, with all this, we keep on wondering, who made that terrible decision to simulate the original demo, anyway? To set the record straight, there is even the making of the video posted right after the demo.

Best phone at current time, period. You can only dream of having such a beauty in the dull, boring android world.

As far as I remember Nokia never stated that the "original" video was captured with a phone...

Posting the fake video was a study in how to NOT do a product launch. Carrier exclusive of the L920 is another boo-boo. Hopefully Nokia learns a lesson and doesn't repeat with the next L9X0 release.

Haters will still hate anyway, but that right there is a great feat as far as cameras on a smartphones are concerned. am yet to see better. oo and never mind, am not a Nokia apologist either.

This Video make me think that why didn't Nokia used real Lumia 920 in original Ad, the video is very good, and it captures the essence of camera very nicely............... I think the main point of Nokia, was to demonstrate the OIS technology and how it affects the video recording, but in excitement they forgot to mention it, and rest we all know is history............

Wow this is a sweet video but too bad they didn't edit some happy go lucky music in it and had a better path of travel. There were like 20 potential crashes waiting to happen here.lol But really, the Lumia 920 is a beast and unless it comes to T-Mobile, I'm not sure I can settle for less unless something else great comes along.
