The Lumia 920's PureView Camera Passes the Russian RC Car Test

By Eric Limer on at

When it comes to phone cameras, the Lumia 920's PureView is proving to be pretty awesome at low-light shots, but how good is that Optical Image Stabilisation? A couple of Russians with a 920, a Galaxy S III, and an RC car ran a little experiment to find out. Turns out it's nothing to sneeze at.

While the S III's footage turned out uncomfortably jittery, the 920's fares much better, despite still having a bit of jank. And that's just on top of an RC car with pretty rapid, violently jerky movements; in most real-life situations, you'd have to image the camera wouldn't be vibrating quite that wildly. It just goes to show that, aside from previous fakery, the 920's camera is definitely a force to be reckoned with. [Neowin via The Verge]
