Controversy aside, Nokia is trying everything in its power to prove that the PureView camera in the Lumia 920 is the real deal. For the uninitiated, one of the greatest innovations in the hardware is the optical image stabilization found in the phone's body, which helps the camera float and absorb shocks to keep the image steady.
We have seen a real video from Nokia before, but this time Engadget's Myriam Joire took the phone for a brisk walk in the company's parking lot in Helsinki, Finland. Oh and did we mention it was strapped alongside a shiny new Apple iPhone 5 for comparison? Yes, yes it was. Not only that, but Engadget was given the direct video file from the Lumia 920 allowing an unadulterated look at the PureView camera's stabilization prowess — especially compared to the almost nauseating iPhone recording. Check out the video after the break and become a believer (or just use it to make fun of your iPhone-touting friends).
As a bonus, Engadget also recorded an interview with Nokia CEO Stephen Elop in addition to the fan-submitted Ask Me Anything session. Here's the kicker: the video interview was also filmed on a Lumia 920 (though the audio was filmed with a different camera). The 12-minute interview doesn't reveal anything new, but it does reinforce Nokia's ideology of being the best in camera technology while appealing to consumers with a unique set of hardware.
