Nokia’s 41-Megapixel 808 PureView is a monstrous feat of smartphone engineering. The camera employs over-sampling to capture information from several pixels for each one pixel of image. The result is 5-Megapixel images with immense detail. All good on paper, but what does it mean in terms of pictures?
We’ve got the first raw 808 PureView shots to show you, so you can judge for yourself.
The Symbian-powered Nokia 808 PureView is a marvel. Out of nowhere, Nokia’s just slapped the best camera phone we’ve ever seen down on the table, while the iPhone 4S and its other nearest competitors tug nervously at their collars.
All the specs are there for the phone to produce some achingly beautiful shots, so it’s reassuring that on first glance it’s done just that. These are official pictures from Nokia, but they’re untouched, raw pictures straight from the Nokia 808 PureView’s Carl Zeiss lens. And they’re stunning.
Have a look at the shots and try and think if you’ve ever seen raw images as clear as this from any other phone. We doubt it. The one of the close-up of the rope is especially impressive in terms of detail. Of course, we’ve edited these down to get them on the site. If you want the full, original images, hit the link below:
