Nokia apologizes for Pureview Demo Video
More on the questionable Pureview Camera video that Nokia released. You know the one that has the reflection of a videographer holding something that doesn't look like a Pureview Camera.
Well after the video had been dissected this way and that, Nokia issued a clarification here that the images were taken with a prototype. Now Nokia has issued a formal apology for all the confusion.
Recognizing they should have posted a disclaimer stating the video was a representation of the Pureview optical image stabilization Nokia states,
In an effort to demonstrate the benefits of optical image stabilization (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.
Nokia has also released the video shown at the Press Event using a prototype Lumia 920. The footage to the right is a Lumia 920 prototype using OIS and the image to the left is another smartphone without OIS.
While the main video has now been declared a simulation of the OIS, the differences in the two videos above is rather noticeable as well. It will be fun taking this new Windows Phone camera out for a test drive.
