Nokia did a promotional video to showcase Optical Image stabilization on the Nokia Lumia 720. The viseo was shot of two people riding a bike to show the power within. That was quite good. Only that the video was not shot using a  Lumia 920, and the Verge noticed that. The detection was made in the 27th minute of the video where a reflection of a different camera was spotted.Now before this PR disaster goes viral, Nokia has quickly made an apology and actually confessed that the video was not shot using the Newly announced Lumia 920. See the video below, and apparently it is now unlisted, so you cannot search for it on Youtube.


And here is part of the apology published on the Nokia blog:

We’re excited about the Lumia 920 and the ground-breaking PureView imaging capabilities we announced today.

In an effort to demonstrate the benefits of optical image stabilization (which eliminates blurry images and improves pictures shot in low light conditions), we produced a video that simulates what we will be able to deliver with OIS.

Of course, hindsight is 20/20, but we should have posted a disclaimer stating this was a representation of OIS only. This was not shot with a Lumia 920. At least, not yet. We apologize for the confusion we created.

We are looking forward to bringing the Lumia 920, with PureView optical image stabilization to select markets later this year.
