I posted just half an hour ago on Google Plus…
“Stabilisation is a huge challenge for cameraphones because there’s not enough processing power to do it well enough in software and no room for optical stabilisation.”
Nokia may have solved the problem with “Floating Lens Technology” on the Nokia Lumia 920.
Technical details are unavailable right now but I’m excited to see that as it will a) allow slower shutter speeds (more light) b) reduce the need for xenon flash to freeze motion c) allow for longer zoom d) reduce video bitrates.
I’m tracking for new information on this technology that “surpasses the optical stabilization technology in DSLRs.” For me, that’s 2 F-stops which allows for 4X more light at the same shutter speed (brighter 60fps videos?) or a 4X faster shutter speed for the same light level.
Fantastic news that’s developing as I write this. The Nokia Lumia 920 also includes wireless charging, Windows phone 8, a new high-resolution screen technology, augmented reality maps and more.
Watch out for more information from us very soon.
