Following Anandtech’s sample that prooves that PureView in the 920 gets significantly more low light in very low light situations, Laptopmag has some excellent hands on videos with the Nokia Lumia 920. They seem to be rather impressed with the phone.

In the video, you can see how the super sensitive display works. Feather light capacitive touch yet it can respond to gloves and finger nails!

That’s something that might not sound impressive but will definitely impact positively in day to day use of the touch screen.

Next up you can see the optical image stabilisation in action. Notice how half press (like on my Canon 60D) activates image stabilisation and instantly the picture is smooth. This makes such a difference in getting a clear shot or not.

The Lumia 920 also shines when it comes to steadying your photos and videos. Built-in object image stabilization will prevent blur, and we saw proof when a Nokia rep started shaking the phone. As soon as he pressed the shutter half-way down, the image stopped shaking. Pretty amazing.

Check out the low light test at the end. In low light mode, the competing smartphone captures NO picture. In auto, the 920 gets a clear photo.

Next up, take a look at Cinemagraph in action. We discussed this earlier in this post but this video shows it off better.

How Cinemagraph works

Purely focusing on image stabilisation. Look what happens the moment he hits record. The shake is virtually totally eliminated. And he’s shaking on purpose. I love hearing the Finnish accent explaining the camera.

Cheers Botham for the tip!
