Nokia: Sorry, This Is Not Nokia 920 PureView Video. We Apologise !


Within 12 hours of the showcasing Lumia 920, Nokia is on ground with the apology over a fake video claimed to be featuring PureView imaging technology of Lumia 920. Company’s first ever smartphone powered with Windows Phone 8 OS, Lumia 920 is being addressed the most sophisticated mobile in its class ever.

In an apology, released by Editor-in Chief, Heidi Lemmetyinen said that Nokia made a mistake by not putting a disclaimer about the video. He said that our intention was to display the OIS capabilities and what one could expect by the use of the image stabilizing technology.  Though

So, what went wrong; The Timing !

Nokia released the video just at the time when company unveiled its first Windows Phone 8 smartphone that has PureView Imaging technology for HD+ video recording capability that stabilizes moving objects. This results in comparatively sharper and clearer video of moving objects than ever before.

Due to the launch of Lumia 920 almost at the same time People confused the video shot by Lumia 920 itself as there was no disclaimer mentioned below the video by Nokia. Here is the fake one:

To clarify the scenario Heidi said “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.”

After noticing thousands of hits on the fake YouTube video in no time, Nokia decided to play down the goof-up and immediately released another video shot by using Lumia 920 phone and demonstrates the difference between OIS recording and non OIS recording.

Interestingly, the fake video is much more appealing and attractive than the original one…This has reminded me an old phrase “While the ‘Truth’ stays silent, ‘False’ has got more shine and capacity to shout !”
