Nokia Lumia 920 fakery failure

Nokia has been caught red-handed trying to pass off professional photos, shot with professional cameras, as being snaps and videos taken with their Lumia 920 smartphone.

This still photo purports to show OIS (image stabilization) in action, but it is very obviously shot with a D-SLR or similar camera, and not with a Lumia phone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The star burst appearance of the distant street lighting indicates that this photo was shot using a small aperture, as does the motion blur of the car.  The Lumia 920 has a wide aperture of f/2.0.  Far too big to create that star effect.

The small aperture would also mean a fairly low shutter-speed, hence the blurred car and well exposed ambient areas.  The model is clinging to that truss for a reason, so she can remain still for the duration of the exposure to avoid movement blur.

It's also extremely likely that the camera used was mounted on a tripod.  Even with OIS it would be impossible to keep an unsupported camera this steady for a long exposure of perhaps 0.5 sec to 1 sec.

The model is almost certainly lit using portable studio type lighting.  Something you're not likely to have to hand when taking snapshots in the street.

One of their demo videos has also been outed as a fake, read more here.
