Nokia Lumia 920 takes an exciting ride on a roller coaster and you can watch
Summertime in the U.S. usually means going to theme parts, eating greasy foods and riding stomach churning rides like a roller coaster. In 2013, it also means that you have a smartphone with a great camera that can record all of the action. One Nokia Lumia 920 owner used the video capture on his phone to record a ride on the Cheetah Hunt at Busch Gardens in Tampa.

It's a much smoother video than you would expect thanks to the OIS built into the Nokia Lumia 920's rear-facing camera. So sit back and imagine what it feels like to have the wind in your hair, two hot dogs, fries and cotton candy in the belly and a front-row seat on a 60MPH ride under the hot Florida sun. And yes, we almost forgot, you have the Nokia Lumia 920 in your hand.

Its a phone that is filming a rollercoaster, this happens everyday but when its a lumia combined with a camera PA feel that it needs to be posted.......Probably because there is nothing else about a lumia to post about lol!!

by your logic all those s4 case articles arent news either and shouldnt be on here example been this article shows a feature of a phone been used in the real world the case articles show how a case looks on the s4 which of these is more newsworthy, dont answer as in your delusional samsung bubble you will deny the fact that seeing a feature been used in the real world is always good to see and newsworthy on here. ohh and using your own logic about how there must be nothing else about a lumia device to post about, again the s4 case articles...well must not be much to wirte about that device right? or should we comment on the articles about the s4's problems like over heating and low storage? see everyone can be negative like you, ohh and dont try get angry i used your logic so you will be arguing against yourself

Indeed, it's not really news. But if you bring any other phone, take the same video and the output is as smooth as this, THAT would be news.

wow, the OIS in the lumia 920 is pretty much working indeed and one thought that it was a gimmick.....I never saw a such smooth video for such a bumpy ride before.....i really hope nokia implements OIS in all its upcoming phones and bring other awesome technology... i am switching to lumia,that's for sure !!!!
