The Lumia 920 visually isn’t too much different from its predecessor, but the stand out feature is the new Pure View Camera. It features a new, “floating lens” optical image stabilization system which offers sharper photography in low-light situations, the shutter will actually let in five to ten times more light to take clearer photos in low light.It also boasts an improved app and camera interface.Nokia actually claims that their floating lens technology that surpasses the optical stabilization system available in most digital SLRs.
Optical image stabilization system is being pushed as a defining feature because it isn’t found on other smartphones. To put this into perspective is how optical image stabilization actually changed the quality of point and shoot cameras that were released onto the market five years ago. That technology has made its way into a smartphone for the very first time.
The increased focus on real world scenarios is clear, their goal is to get rid of blurry photos in low light or if you’ve got an unsteady hand. We’re excited to get our hands on, until then we reserve judgment.
Chippy over at HiBlue has actually pulled some details about the new PureView from a Nokia White Paper over here, if you want to geek out on the camera some more.
