First camera samples from the Lumia 925 outed by Nokia

First camera samples from the Lumia 925 outed by Nokia
Nokia's Lumia 925 sporting a PureView Phase 2 camera with optical image stabilization, coupled with a cool new Smart Camera app is all fine and dandy, but how about some samples?

The Finns have uploaded a few photos from their newest and slimmest flagship, which demonstrate what the camera is capable of, allegedly straight from the phone, though likely taken by a pro who knows what they are doing, so your results may vary.

The new Action Shot and Motion Blur modes are demonstrated, as well as a few other novel for Windows Phone camera tricks, which will make your photos look like poor magic, floating beach towel included. Hit the source link for the full resolution of the images if you want to examine noise levels and other details under a scrutinizing photographic eye.

For professional DSLR photos, they are average.

I'm not a professional guy, I'm a normal guy, a normal guy who loves smartphones, so I will use the normal rating! So, my rating is : Not bad! :)

I guess you missed the pun. Nokia is known for taking it's samples with professional DSLRs.

I didn't missed the pun. I understand what you're saying, professional DSLR is a Digital Single-Lens Reflex camera right? I'm just saying that I'm not a professional guy, so my rate is basic, so it's not bad.

i think what _bone means is "sarcasm" not pun. remember nokia was put in an awkward situation when it was discovered that the promo pics they released to tout the lumia 920 camera were actually taken by a DSLR.

Nokia used to fake their promotional camera samples by taking them with DSLRs and claiming that they were taken by their devices.(Remember the L920?) http://i.imgur.com/dsCZ658.jpg Seems like they did fake this one as well.. LMAO!

Man that can't be, it's must be a joke LOL, so anyone at Nokia's marketing service didn't see the flaws on those pictures before releasing it to 10.000 press websites ? Man there is something witch is strange with Nokia. I tell you.

"Man there is something witch is strange with Nokia. I tell you." Man, you didn't see the flaw in your post before releasing it to 10,000 fanboys or other readers?

did they say anywhere it was taken by Nokia 920 in the ad..? too bad if you got confused. the video was used to show some of its features. all OEMs make such videos..grow up dude..

Of course I remember the L920 ad.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pytmZV0Qs7s I hope they're not cheating us again.

if the sample is taken using a nokia phone they state that at the bottom..do you have atleast even one valid example where the sample was taken using a DSLR and they said it was taken using a Nokia..

24. SleepingOz unregistered

So why did they use these photos for the promotion of the L920 then? And why did they apologize if they've done nothing in the first place?

28. bon24x7

They apologised because the ad mislead the ones that saw it. It wasnt intentional and they apologised. And since then they started showing 'shot/taken by lumia/nokia' at the bottom of ads so that such confusions wont happen again..

31. SleepingOz unregistered

That's actually my point, why did they demonstrate L920's OIS using a DSLR camera instead of the product they're promoting itself?!

sad fact you cant accept is the 920 then proved itself validating what it can do you keep living in the past, move on and on a related note i never saw you say a word when samsung advertised one of there phones to have a flash which it didnt ....thats real misleading actually its complete lies from a company you just like to slate nokia we see this, you never criticise samsung for the same thing

"sad fact you cant accept is the 920 then proved itself validating what it can do" True, but still not as good as demonstrated in the ad using the DSLR! I'm pretty sure it was a careless mistake from Samsung Taiwan's marketing department. How can you purposely advertise something that you know people will obviously notice it's not there, at first glance?! And no, I was just explaining _Bone_'s comment to xperiaDROID. But it seems like nokia did it again. The first picture has definitely been edited. =]

You guys take one wrong step that happened in the past and make it a big issue. Like hell came down to burn you if you don't mention it or make fun of it. So what if the marketing strategy didn't make the headlines like it's supposed to. Atleast, appreciate things if it's good...jezz, you people are so hard to deal with.

these are definitely great photos. still, i wish the lumia was on android. also, hopefully these photos were really taken by the lumia 925. not the same camera promo blunder they had with the L920.

Nokia can make an Android Lumia, if Elop wants to. But Elop chose to go with Windows Phone, so we can't do anything about it. But Elop made a right choice to go with Windows Phone.

He made I right choice because in may 2013 Nokia's new phones still must have an hardware of 2012 ?

i looked at full res. version of photos on nokia.com. its not perfect. but i think htc one still is the best at night shots. and day shots lumia 925 is not good as galaxy s4
