Lumia 920 Pureview OIS seems to work fine, some test against Samsung.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czIrXlkNHOw
Vitruvius: What can you expect when Nokia had to fake the footage for the ad with a DSLR....
Makes you wonder how often they do this and don't get caught. Shouldn't this be false advertising, like Sketchers?
Was the ad that misleading, if OIS actually works or if used tech gives some advantage in low light conditions? Those performance comparisons seen at verge (http://www.theverge.com/2012/9/7/3299784/nokia-lumia-920-pureview-camera-hi-res-photos) do give me same impression than the ad did give. As the used tech is already seen in larger cameras and we know that it does works, I'd expect it to work also in cameraphones. Still I think we only now that for sure after some independent reviews are made with actual production software/hardware.
It's pretty easy to find similar simulations used Samsung and Apple ads too. I bet these can be find in camera manufactures ads too. Anyhow, when looking into site where actual pureview technology is explained, the picture clarifies http://www.nokia.com/global/products/pureview/Technology simulated in those ads seems pretty functional in real life with some prototype hardware (as seen in pureview tech site) or in hi-res images published in verge where Lumia 920 seems to beat Nokia 808 and other camera phones.Anyhow I'd prefer some independent tests from dpreview and others - but I have a feeling we will get those too.Perhaps 2013 we can get a 3rd generation pureview camera phone that has all; OIS, lossless zoom and pixel oversampling tech with 41 MB (or similar) BSI sensor.

Denton Taylor: Only DPR fans seem impressed. Nokia stock down 16% today after the announcement. IOW, a big yawn.
I believe that announced bad sales of earlier WP phones caused most of the drop as it started even before new phones where introduced.
I'm calling bullsh1t on the OIS ad.
That's pretty much impossible on a hand held phone. Heck even the OM-D can't manage that.
Here is a better demo of OIS in Lumia 920http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKWRI9RoxN0&hd=1&t=1m15sI am sold.
KoKo the Talking Ape: I wonder why Nokia doesn't use Android. Windows Phone is great, supposedly, but it is about 6 years too late.
Have you tried it? I'd say even the WP 7.5 is the most trouble free phone OS I have seen. Only thing one might be missing is 1000+ fart apps :) Sometimes simplicity is more.
I guess someone had to do a hands on comparison with Nokia 808 Pureview http://unleashthephones.com/2012/09/01/samsung-galaxy-camera-vs-nokia-808-pureview-camera-samples/
For me Nokia Belle feature pack 1 (Nokia 808's Belle) looks pretty smooth. Love the camera UI. Use of Qt Quick Components is quite a change in user interface... people may be a bit blind for the change.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gXKEcRiR90
