At Nokia’s launch in New York, a video was shown claiming to be recorded on the Windows Phone 8-powered Lumia 920’s PureView camera. Apparently, the video was shot from a dSLR and not the handset. This has forced the Finnish firm to apologise for using a ‘confusing’ promotional video. You can check out the video here.
Spotted by The Verge, a reflection is seen at 0:27 showing a cameraman in a truck using a professional camera to shoot the video. Nokia previously claimed that the video was shot using the Lumia 920’s camera by a man riding a bike.
Nokia’s Heidi Lemmetyinen issued a public apology saying, “In an effort to demonstrate the benefits of optical image stabilisation (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 apologise for the confusion we created.”
Nokia has been criticised for the Lumia 920’s camera. The 808 PureView sports a 41-megapixel sensor. Although the 920 sports a camera with PureView technology, it only sports an 8-megapixel sensor just like the Lumia 900.
Does this change what you think about the Nokia Lumia 920 with PureView technology, or are you still interested in the Windows Phone 8-powered handset? Share your thoughts.
