New Ad for Nokia’s 808 PureView Shot Using the Phone Itself

Nokia recently put together this ad for the new 808 PureView — their 41-megapixel monster of a camera phone — that they claim was shot using only the smartphone itself. Cramming too many pixels on too small a sensor rarely leads to good results, but sample shots and video in the ad don’t look bad at all. Of course there’s probably a “real-life results will vary” tag in fine print somewhere that we’re missing; but where the pixel race is concerned Nokia have definitely proved that they are winning.

Unfortunately, as we’ve mentioned before, Nokia aren’t going to sell the phone in North America.
