Nokia Lumia 920 hits the slopes, image stabilization works like a charm
Windows Phone developer, Ronny Gydar, is normally busy working on his various Windows Phone apps that includes Trine's Hangman and People Search. But this past weekend he and a few friends spent some time on the slopes.
Skiing on Sled Dogs snow skates, Ronny captured the footage using his Nokia Lumia 920 and not only is it impressive watching these guys fly downhill on such small skates but the 920's performance isn't too shabby either. Ronny said the biggest challenge may have been simply holding on to his Lumia 920 while skiing. He's using a silicone skin case that required both hands to maintain a firm grip on the Windows Phone. He's since vowed to find a more rugged case so he concentrate more on the skiing and get away with holding his Lumia 920 with one hand.
While the audio isn't the best (racing down hill does generate a little wind noise), you can barely notice any bounce with the Lumia 920's image stabilization. I'm guessing the flashes of light in the footage is snow reflecting off the Lumia 920's light as it impacts the lens.
All in all, the footage is yet more testimony to the benefit image stabilization gives the Lumia 920.
Thanks, Ronny, for sharing the video!
