new video of some ppl testing out the OIS in the lumia 920 to see how good it really is. the result is amazing.
The Nokia Lumia 920 features Optical Image Stabilisation. This means that you can say goodbye to those shaky home videos. But how good is it? We put it to the test in the heart of the desert in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
We hooked up the Lumia 920 to the front of a Land Rover recording 1080p full HD video. The phone was secured using three plastic cable ties and was attached to the bottom rung of the grill at the front of a Land Rover. We then took the Land Rover (and with it the Lumia 920) dune bashing as part of the desert safari experience provided by North Tours (http://www.northtours.net).
This is the actual video that the Lumia 920 captured - the only editing has been to remove the scenes prior and post the actual dune bashing and to add the title scenes - we've included the original audio and haven't removed any scenes (as you can see about 1 minute in, the video jumps as the ground was bumpy and the Lumia 920 was shaking). The video HAS NOT been touched up or stabilised or optimised in ANY WAY - it's REALLY that GOOD!! The OIS tech, which is able to compensate for up to 500 movements a second, held its own perfectly at the front of the jumpy vehicle, and delivered steady Full HD footage of the desert sands around, proving once again that the only phone with optical image stabilization is a truly innovative device in this day and age where we take multicore processors and HD screens in our handsets for granted.
What do you think? Leave a comment. Trust us, it's pretty spectacular!
