UKMobileReview wanted to push the Optical Image Stabilization to the edge on the Nokia Lumia 920, so they took the device dune-bashing in Dubai and produced the video above.
The Nokia Lumia 920 features Optical Image Stabilisation. This means that you can say goodbye to those shaky home videos. But how good is it? We put it to the test in the heart of the desert in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
We hooked up the Lumia 920 to the front of a Land Rover recording 1080p full HD video. The phone was secured using three plastic cable ties and was attached to the bottom rung of the grill at the front of a Land Rover. We then took the Land Rover (and with it the Lumia 920) dune bashing as part of the desert safari experience provided by North Tours (www.northtours.net).
This is the actual video that the Lumia 920 captured – the only editing has been to remove the scenes prior and post the actual dune bashing and to add the title scenes – we’ve included the original audio and haven’t removed any scenes (as you can see about 1 minute in, the video jumps as the ground was bumpy and the Lumia 920 was shaking). The video HAS NOT been touched up or stabilised or optimised in ANY WAY – it’s REALLY that GOOD!!

The video is almost unnaturally smooth, which is a great testament to the work of the Nokia engineers.
