40MP Shootout: Nokia 808 PureView vs Pentax 645D

Nokia’s 808 PureView phone packs a hefty 41-megapixel sensor, but how do its megapixels compare to a “real” 40+ megapixel camera photo? Spanish website Quesabesde decided to find out by putting the phone head-to-head with the 40MP Pentax 645D medium format DSLR. They shot the same scenes with both cameras, and blew them up to examine the quality. The article is in Spanish, but a little Google Translate magic does the trick.

Nokia 808 PureView Shows Off Sensor Quality at a Rock Concert

There are a few situations where taking pictures or video can be a nightmare, and one of them is definitely a rock concert. Getting a good snapshot — or capturing good video and audio for that matter — in a situation with that much movement, that many light changes, and such drastic sways in volume doesn’t bode well for the phonetographer. So when All About Symbian wanted to show off how well the 808 PureView’s camera worked, where do you think they pulled footage from? Read more…

Unlocked 41MP Nokia 808 PureView May Make it Stateside

All megapixel race arguments aside, a lot of people wanted to give the camera a shot and see what those 41 million pixels could really do.

Nokia’s Beastly 41MP 808 PureView Phone Not Coming to North America

Nokia caused quite a ripple in the mobile phone market last week by announcing its new 41-megapixel 808 PureView smartphone. However, if you live in North America and have been drooling over the phone, here’s some bad news: Nokia isn’t planning to sell the phone on our continent. On the 808’s official product page, Nokia has included a footnote that says “Excluding North America” for the phone’s global availability. The reason may be that US carriers aren’t willing to subsidize the $600 phone and aren’t interested in Nokia’s Symbian Belle OS. On the bright side, rumor has it that Nokia is working to bring its PureView technology to Windows Phones.

Nokia’s 41-Megapixel Camera Phone Sensor Compared to Other Sensors

Here’s a great diagram by Mobot that shows how the 41-megapixel sensor inside Nokia’s new 808 PureView phone stacks up against other popular sensor sizes. It’s pretty clear that they didn’t just milk a small sensor for more megapixels as a simply marketing ploy, but instead came up with a sensor that’s significantly larger than those found in other smartphones. Engadget also has a photo showing a comparison of sensor sizes, while Digital Trends has published an article on five reasons why the 41-megapixels isn’t a gimmick.
