There's only one way out of this for Nokia. They need to release new photo's and video's created with the new Nokia Wndows 8 Phone right the f* now. With as much EXIF and/or metadata as possible. If I was Nokia I'd hire the best photographer-artist the world knows and make a big splash about it.

Or they could just pretend this never happened.

A search on Google News (anecdotal, yes) https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&gl=us&tbm=nws...

None of the articles have anything related to this in the title, and the first three articles do not mention any faking.

It feels like a big issue in tech-savvy circles on the internet. But I doubt most consumers know or care.

The second result for me (posted 7 minutes ago) is related to this topic: http://i.imgur.com/oJQYf.png

On the other hand, it is very easy to edit and fake EXIF and metadata. Adding EXIF data fields to demo pictures does not increase the credibility.

All right. How about hiring the best photographer-artist and letting people sign up and co-create photo's with them? Everything will auto-upload to the cloud in the artist's album live. No cheating there and I'd sure go for an experience like that.

I'm pretty sure Chase Jarvis did a lot to solidify the iPhone as a great camera.


This is also standard launch procedure for Canon and Nikon (don't know about the others).

I hope the tech blogs that review this phone use their camera testing procedures on this phone.

This is a great idea actually. Take your mobile phone and let's shoot with us.

Then you 'd have to make the same demands from the whole advertising industry (so Ghandi never used Macs? who knew!)

Maybe they are planning to do just that. How else would they miss the truck reflection - isn't that way too obvious?

You'd be suprized how often mistakes are overlooked (mostly due to tight deadlines). Have a look at http://www.psdisasters.com/p/greatest-hits.html for a good laugh.
