Nokia Lumia 928 camera shows remarkable stability while attached to a remote control copter

Nokia continues to drop little clues about the unannounced Nokia Lumia 928, including the release of a rendering of the phone in white and a video showing off the phone's camera; by strapping the Nokia Lumia 928 to a remote control copter and taking video, it shows off the optical image stabilization abilities of the rear camera on the handset...

to be honest I am impressed but this is not the best test to rely on. first, we don't know how stable is the helicopter, the great stability might be due to very stable helicopter. second, they slowed the speed of the video to try and make it look more stable and you can see this by looking at the motion of the river and the waves of the sea.
they are manipulating the truth as always (when they previously did similar stuff with previous phone, I can't remember whether the 920 or 808)

Have to throw in the fact that this copter is one of the most stable rc toys out there. Not sure this is really demonstrating any camera stability features. Nice footage though.

While I'm sure they used a particularly stable copter for this demo, any sort of copter with rotating blades is going to cause a lot of high frequency vibration. I think the fact that the OIS can smooth that out to the degree it does here is remarkable. Still not perfect, but the best we currently have to look at from a phone.

Connecting people is the whole point of phones.

lets hope its not fake, like what they did with the previous 920 ad.

Nokia didn't make that ad, an ad agency did, and none of the footage ever shoed the "fined with Lumia" like this did, just what OIS does.

Some tout apps and others tout customization, but Nokia touts something awesomely useable in everyday any situation, all within a smartphone; The best camera and video.

stability is great, but that wobble effect need to go

I just hope they don't use the same old Snapdragon MSM8960 chipset as in the 920... It's already more than one year old and there is not a windows phone with a more powerful chip.

They do make cameras so they stepped it up. Downside verizon and their molasses updates.
