Nokia India plays some cricket in the dark, showing off the Lumia 925 and low light photography

Have you played cricket in the dark before? We're not talking about flood lights on full, but in actual darkness? Nokia India has attempted to do so, using only some coloured lighting for guidance as two teams battle it out on the streets. Thanks to the imaging capabilities of the Lumia 925, some shots were captured.

Nokia has been launching numerous adverts to show exactly what its smartphones are capable of when it comes to taking photographs. It doesn't show off Windows Phone as the OS, but Nokia is at least trying new and unique ways to differentiate its products from competitors. That and their marketing efforts are generally entertaining.

This advert aired last month, but we're glad it was brought to our attention as a little gem. Nokia World is right around the corner, so be sure to remain tuned to our feeds for all the latest news from the event.

I was kinda let down when I saw a flash light at 0:42... I mean, isn't this ad about low light performance WITHOUT the flash??
Love my 925, though.

You do know if its Dark the Lumia 925 flash aleay goes off before taking a picture but its to show you what your looking at as the picture is taken after the flash goes off.

Oh yeah! How stupid of me haha it's because I rarely use the assist/focus light, so I'd forgotten about that.

Had anyone seen the fine print in bottom left corner starting at 00:19? Shot under normal light conditions?
