Fake Nokia Advertisement Creates Controversy
A fake advertisement created by Nokia in order to demonstrate the technology of video stabilizing, which is introduced in the announced Lumia 920, has created an uproar in the business world. The new video released yesterday, which shows that a man takes a smooth video footage (without any jitters and shakes) while riding on a bicycle, was highly condemned when it was found out to be a fake one.
Heidi Lemmetyinen, Editor-in-chief of Nokia’s official blog, apologized for the incident after a period of denial. She even tried to hush up the matter through a bizarre comment saying that though the video was not shot for the upcoming model of Lumia, yet it was aired in order to make the people familiarize with the ‘pureview’ technology and demonstrate the features of optical image stabilization.
The problem arose when, The Verge revealed that it had noticed some sort of reflection that does not look like a man riding a bicycle. Rather, The Verge went on to explain that
The reflection pointed towards a big man who was appearing to be holdings lighting rig, while the cameraman being stranded on the doorway. It was later revealed that the video displayed was actually shot in a camera, other than that of the Nokia Lumia 920. Rather, it was even shot from a car, and not from any bicycle, as shown in the video. The video was fabricated later on by technicians of Nokia to get the outcome.
On the emergence of the incident, Nokia apparently tried to ignore the matter and tried to hush the incident by declaring the information as an incorrect one.
