Desert safari pushes the Nokia Lumia 920 OIS testing to the extremes

Desert safari pushes the Nokia Lumia 920 OIS testing to the extremes
We've seen a few examples of the Nokia Lumia 920 optical image stabilization mechanism at work, but those were in fairly pedestrian situations, like walking around the city streets or at concerts.

To truly put the OIS suspension mechanism inside the Lumia 920 to the test, the phone has been tied to the front grill of a Land Rover, and taken for a dune ride as part of a desert safari tour.

Needless to say, the OIS tech, which is able to compensate for up to 500 movements a second, held its own perfectly at the front of the jumpy vehicle, and delivered steady Full HD footage of the desert sands around, proving once again that the only phone with optical image stabilization is a truly innovative device in this day and age where we take multicore processors and HD screens in our handsets for granted.

Thanks, Ron!
