Before the Nokia Amber update, Nokia Lumia 920 was recording (albeit in very high quality) mono audio.

But, post Amber update and with Nokia Pro Cam, you can now record in stereo. According to the datasheet, there are not simply two but three high amplitude audio capture microphones. Until now only one has been active for recording video (and secondary for noise cancelling?)

Here’s a comparison as shared very nicely with us by HrabiaMol (thanks!). I suggest putting on some headphones/play through stereo speakers that are of some decent distance for channel separation.

Having Stereo Audio helps give a little bit more depth to the video (scene permitting). I believe all the 92x will get stereo recording post amber/nokia pro cam.

Nice. Nokia giving users hardware now, and then when MS gets their act together, the software to utilise it.

    They already provided the software for it. That’s why you have to wait for GDR2 update. You know the under the hood updates so your phone can use the mics. Get off Microsoft’s case for once. Three updates in a year is not bad. We know the features sets are coming next year so stop your whining and enjoy the phones that both Microsoft and Nokia provide. You have to remember they did a complete over haul of the operating system within a year or two so you could enjoy your stereo recording.

    I have a T-Mobile Lumia 925 and haven’t been able to download Pro Cam yet. Smart Cam, yes, Pro, no.

    Excellent.

    This would never happen on android as the OEM would rather you spend another $800 just to receive the incremental update (4.1 – 4.2 – 4.3). For example, the Sony xperia s – released with 2,3 gingerbread and never updated beyond 4.1 (effectively ZERO updates)
