Some of the images presented as taken by the Lumia 920's new PureView camera were actually taken by a DSLR camera, as the image below shows. A DSLR on a tripod. Tripods are always great for image stabilization.
Professional illumination is awesome too. I can't think of a better way to show Nokia's new flash technology, which they claim is much better than anyone's else. Except maybe using Nokia's new flash technology. That could have worked too.
Nokia has apologized for the video clusterfuck, but still hasn't said anything about these photos.
Still, even if the final version of PureView is as outstanding as the demos show, simulated or not, this whole fiasco has left a really bad aftertaste. Like licking an imbecile marketing person who has been dipped in idiot sauce. [Ycombinator via Sefsar]
