Nokia Apologizes for Fake Lumia PureView Camera Demo

Nokia issued an apology after being pointed out that their Lumnia PureView camera demonstration on its optical image stabilization (OIS) technology is in fact fake.

The accompanying demo video, which featured a woman riding a bike, was pretty impressive, but technology blog The Verge soon spotted a glaring error. Nokia made it look like the woman was shot by a companion who was also riding a bike, but a reflection in the video showed that she was actually shot by someone in a van holding a much larger camera and accompanied by a lighting crew.

Watch video by The Verge:



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.

Of course, hindsight is 20/20, but we should have posted a disclaimer stating this was a representation of OIS only. This was not shot with a Lumia 920. At least, not yet. We apologize for the confusion we created.

Nokia soon posted a different video of which they claimed to have taken using a Nokia 920 demonstrating its OIS technology as below:
