When Nokia sent Mashable its Windows 8-running Lumia 920 phone, it included in the package an little bonus—an extra copy of the phone’s 8.7 megapixel PureView camera lens and sensor.
Nokia’s PureView cameras are designed for low-light photography. Its aperture is fixed at F2 to let in plenty of light to its backside-illuminated sensor. It also features image stabilization so you can keep the shutter open for a long time to capture a well-lit scene.
