Nokia Busted Faking Mobile Phone Footage With A Stabilized Camera System
Earlier today news broke out about Nokia and their Lumia 920 simulation video not being exactly forthright. The video before the shameful reveal had no indication that it wasn’t filmed with the actual product that it was marketing. When reddit.com users got their hands on the video they quickly noticed that the reflection in the video is not of a person filming with a mobile phone on a bicycle, but of a man in a van with what looks to be at least a DSLR sized camera with what seems to be some type of Gyro-stabilization system.
Nokia has released an official apology on their blog stating that they never meant to mislead people and that the video was only meant as a ‘representation of OIS’. I believe Nokia wasn’t expecting to be caught with their pants around their ankles and were rushing to rectify the situation. Check the video starting at 0:27 and watch the reflection closely. How do you feel about Nokia’s ‘slip’? Will this deter you from trusting the company or are you willing to let the mishap slide? Comment below and let us know.
Update: One of our readers shared this very funny meme on the subject of Nokia’s indiscretion and we just had to share. Thank you, Mikko Laitinen.
