First camera samples from the Lumia 925 outed by Nokia

0. phoneArena posted on 14 May 2013, 06:47

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...

At my store, we actually tested the Lumia 920 and the HTC One in low light situations. While the HTC was fantastic, the Lumia did better. Just wait until Nokia gets the adjustable aperture tech in their camera phones, then day shots will be just as good.

i assume it was shot using Nokia Smart Camera app which you can edit which frame do you want to select and applying motion blurs. Or maybe im wrong.

After the fake 920 photos released by Nokia, that had been shot in a photographic set, and the fake movie, which had been taken with a professional camera, I don't believe them anymore. When the phone is released, we'll check the pictures taken by independent reviewer in the real world, not these post-processed studio shots.

so your saying when a company lies you cant trust them, well you must not trust any company. samsung shamelessly lied in one of there ads for a phone saying it had a flash which it didnt..

besides your forgeting the fact the promo vid using a dslr was never said to be taken with the 920...then when the 920 proved it could do what they claimed you trolling sad acts went quiet

go repeat your bs somewhere else

Am I trolling? Or maybe it's you who lost your memory? So let me recall you that the fake video was discovered only because someone noticed the reflexion of the professional camera in a window. And this is what Nokia said afterwards:
“In an effort to demonstrate the benefits of optical image stabilization (which eliminates blurry images and improves pictures shot in low light conditions), we produced a video that simulates what we will be able to deliver with OIS. Of course, hindsight is 20/20, but we should have posted a disclaimer stating this was a representation of OIS only. This was not shot with a Lumia 920. At least, not yet. We apologize for the confusion we created”
Remember now? If that's not enough:
Not to mention the low light pictures: do you remember how it went? They posted some pictures of a girl, taken outoor at night, in a square of some Finnish city. Unfortunately, someone took and posted some pictures of the photo set and so we discovered that the pictures were taken with a professional lighting equipment, and not with the natural light as they wanted us to believe. And I call this fake as well.

theres your facts muppet, samsung was done for false advertising yet none of you fanboys mention it

nokia apologised for the video even though they never said it was filmed with a 920.

you fanboys are tragic, so how about you go suck up to your fellow fanboys elswhere

ohh so its ok for samsung to do, no one can ever mention that but nokia needs idiots like you living in the past everytime they bring a new device out

and the fact the 920 proved itself and lived up to there claims shows your just been a hateful little fanboy, you could say the bs you said if the 920 was proven to not do what they said but as ive said before the 920 proved itself

so you and your fellow haters should move on

see, now you bring samesung to cover for your nokia... they both deserve to be fined (sadly nokia was fast with apologizing so no one can fine them), samesung is also the king of copyandpaste, they should be fined more.

so theres no point in defending and covering it. its clear, nokia is a fake and samsung is even worse. get it?

nokia is a fake.........even though they prove over and over there claims were fact. samsung been copycats has nothing to do with this so know who's going off topic

facts are the 920 proved itself yet you idiots try to use that agency advert to discredit an entire company. did the advert say filmed with 920 .....no it didnt did nokia apologize for the shambles yes they did

did the 920 live up to the claims yes it did....you dont understand that do you kid

you should stop your trolling, go play elsewhere i know you want attention but im done playing its like talking with a chimp

Dont forget samsung admitted to paying ppl to troll HTC articles and bash the HTC One. And for the ppl that i know will say it was just samsung taiwan, that samsung upper echelon had no knowledge is nonsense.

TROLL is a paid shill, working for the competition, and his or her sole purpose is to write hateful and dishonest comments about Nokia and Microsoft products and services.

NOTE: All of their comments should be deleted due to past violations, and their account should be suspended indefinitely. PHONE ARENA, please stop allowing paid employees of other companies looking to interfere with the review and feedback process!

Great Job Nokia!!
Now Its time for Sony, this will be great, the two company who loves competing on each other way back 2004-7 for camera phone is totally back. This is how company should competing, not suing nor bashing and stealing ideas!!

"dont be silly and hating" yet every time you post on a nokia/windows article it is full of hating. a contradicting troll has already defeated itself. bad troll is bad.

I like that Nokia is pushing the envelop when it comes to smartphone cameras. It's making everyone else step their game up. Mix in some of the GS4's features or the UI, a little of that UltraPixle magic and Zoe from the HTC One, and top it with KLP... And I would be a Nokia fanboy all over again.

i disagree on the ui, wp8 has its own unique ui which doesnt follow android or ios which gives choice. as for features its true wp8 needs some more featuresa. it has all the essential just needs some special ones if not abit gimmicky to get peoples attention

as for the KLP part im going to ignore it, bored of the android nokia stuff now

Lol, good! Because the KLP on a Nokia is just my dream, not a diss to WP8. Just a "would be nice" kinda thing. And nothing wrong with WP8 UI either, in fact I like it. Just not as much as the one found on the GS4. Some of it really is gimmick, but as the saying goes "It's better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it".

loving the meaningless thumbs lol

back to the subjest i agree with what you say, but just wish many on here would stop the bs that wp8 cant compete each has there advantages and disadvantages

gs4 as a example its all round a good phone no one can deny but samsung are getting abit comfortable just upping the specs and afew shiny features

as for ui id take HTC sense 5 over samsungs touchwiz (just my opinion)
