Freeze the blades! Nokia Lumia 928 Xenon flash and Rich Recording mics put to the test (video)
A set of camera tests and samples has appeared, done with the newly-announced Nokia Lumia 928, and the results are pretty stellar when it comes to the optical image stabilization performance and the Xenon flash demo. Also, Nokia's Smart Camera Lens seems to be making a cameo on the handset, bringing to WP8 what the default camera app is lacking like shutter speed control, manual white balance and so on.

The OIS mechanism inside works wonders to keep the image steady as if the shot has been taken with a professional camera on rails set. Not only that, but Nokia's Rich Recording technology that use three high-amplitude mics to deliver clear sound without distortion up to 140dB, works wonders at a concert video.

Last, but not least, the first for a Windows Phone Xenon flash was put to the test, and managed to freeze a picture of rotating fan blades, which is a pretty awesome achievement for a smartphone, and you will surely appreciate a powerful Xenon unit for those group family portraits in the dimly lit room around a Thanksgiving dinner, too. Take a peek at the complete sample set in the slideshow below.
