Nokia Lumia 920 PureView camera hands-on vs iPhone 5

Nokia Lumia 920 PureView camera hands-on vs iPhone 5

The Nokia Lumia 920 has been marketed as a beast in the smartphone camera universe, and today we're having a peek at how it stands up against the iPhone 5. Nokia has marketed the Lumia 920, their top-class hero for Windows Phone 8, as having PureView imaging technology and a lovely Carl Zeiss lens to make it all click at 8 megapixels. Apple's iPhone 5 also has 8 megapixels under the hood and calls its amalgamation of technology "iSight" - with a reminder that the iPhone lineup has had the most popular camera in the world for several years running, even IF there are better cameras out there.

Nokia Lumia 920 PureView camera hands-on vs Samsung Galaxy S III

The Nokia Lumia 920 in its AT&T iteration has landed on the SlashGear test bench complete with PureView imaging and Carl Zeiss wide-angle optics this week - so of course it's immediately time to test it against the Samsung Galaxy S III. We'll be testing its camera against the iPhone 5 as well rather soon - and whatever other devices you request as well - but first it's time to battle one of the biggest competitors Nokia has in the field. The Samsung Galaxy S III wasn't originally pushed specifically on its photo-taking abilities nearly so much as the Lumia 920 has been, so pay close attention to how they compare in some real-world tests.

Nokia LTE Everything Everywhere Lumia 920 deal tipped; Apologizes again for PureView goof

Nokia LTE Everything Everywhere Lumia 920 deal tipped; Apologizes again for PureView goof

Nokia is reportedly planning an exclusive 4G deal with UK carrier Everything Everywhere for the Lumia 920,  a potential distraction from its second mea culpa over the faked camera sample goof. The UK exclusive would see Everything Everywhere - including T-Mobile UK and Orange - snap up the Windows Phone 8 device for a November launch, the Financial Times' sources say, echoing Nokia's sole-carrier deal with AT&T in the US on previous handsets. However, the new Lumia is still being overshadowed by Nokia's faking of the initial photography samples, something the company now says will be handled with an internal inquiry.

Nokia admits PureView Lumia 920 video fake (but OIS does work)

Nokia admits PureView Lumia 920 video fake (but OIS does work)

Nokia has confessed to faking the eye-catching PureView demo video for the freshly announced Lumia 920, admitting it manufactured the stabilization demo but insisting the real thing is just as capable. The "floating lens" 8-megapixel camera on the new Windows Phone 8 flagship was billed as a ground-breaking advance in mobile photography, but closer examination of Nokia's initial demo footage raised doubts as to its authenticity. Now, Nokia has released a second video, showing exactly what PureView OIS on the Lumia 920 is able to do.

PureView rebooted: Nokia shows why Lumia 920 camera is special

Nokia's new Lumia 920 may not be PureView as we've known it, but that doesn't mean it's not some darned clever camera technology all the same: think springs in your smartphone for a start. A new side-by-side video demo of the stabilization system in play - which you can see after the cut - shows another string of PureView's catch-all camera bow, relying not on masses of megapixels but on how a more average sensor does its business.

Nokia PureView chief slaps down Lumia 920 camera criticism

Nokia's photography expert has struck out at PureView criticisms, apparently taking to task those who doubt the rumored Lumia 920 PureView is eligible to bear the brand. Damian Dinning, who spent five years developing PureView, took to Twitter to give an impromptu lesson in the advanced camera technology and - though he was careful not to reference unannounced Lumias - why an 8-megapixel camera could still deliver PureView-class stills and video.
