Nokia 808 Has A 41 Mega-Pixel Camera


Nokia have just revealed the Nokia 808 PureView, dubbed ‘The Next Breakthrough in Photography’.

The camera has a whopping 41 mega-pixel sensor, with a Carl Zeiss lens we come to expect from Nokia smartphones. The phone also uses an over-sampling technology, which means zooming in on images after it has been taken loses almost no clarity.

“Pixel oversampling combines many pixels to create a single (super) pixel. When this happens, you keep virtually all the detail, but filter away visual noise from the image. The speckled, grainy look you tend to  get in low-lighting conditions is greatly reduced. And in good light, visual noise is virtually non-existent.  Which means the images you can take are more natural and beautiful than ever. They are purer, perhaps  a more accurate representation of the original subject than has ever been achieved before.

Even digital SLR images have a certain softness. With oversampling, however, images can be noise free, yet incredibly detailed and defined. Zoom into the 5Mpix images at 100% magnification on your PC  screen, and you’ll see. There’s something beautifully pure about the detail — not enhanced in anyway.  Look closely at some grass… it’s amazing.” – Nokia

The 808 also records in 1080p HD video quality, as well as high definition audio.

Just when it looks like Nokia have released one of the most revolutionary phones of all time, they ruin it. The Nokia 808 will not run Windows Phone 7, instead using the doomed Symbian we thought was on its way out.

    Any photographer knows that its not about the megapixels! MP just means the size of print you can make without the quality decreasing… You only need 5MP to print an A4 size photo! This is a rip-off people. Do NOT buy this!!
