Low-Light Video Shootout Pits the Lumia 928 Against the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3

Nokia recently announced its new Lumia 928: a 8.7-megapixel PureView, Carl Zeiss, OIS-toting replacement for the already impressive Lumia 920 that will do its best to blow away the rest of the market in terms of image and video quality.

But in case words aren’t enough, Nokia has also released the above video comparing the low-light video capability of the new Lumia with that of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 5.

To shoot the video, Nokia took all three phones to a poorly lit rollercoaster called “The Hurricane” at Adventureland in Farmingdale, New York, got on the ride, and shot away. The resulting footage was compiled into this video shootout that is supposed to show off just how much better the Lumia 928 is than its most popular competition:

Of course, pulling stills out of a Nokia created shootout hardly seems like a fair comparison, but it’s hard to deny that the Lumia more than holds its own against the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3. The image stabilization even prompted one YouTube commenter to say that “the video is so stable it seems the roller coaster is stopped.”

While we wouldn’t go that far, the video has done a great job showing off what a great sensor, great lens, and optical image stabilization can do for smartphone-captured footage.
