14_Xperia_Z2_Water

It’s been a good weekend for Sony from a photography standpoint. First they manage to keep the new full-frame A7s E-Mount camera a secret until only two days before it was officially announced, and now the Experia Z2 has dethroned the Nokia 808 PureView in DxOMark Mobile’s rankings. Read more…

Nokia ‘EOS’ Product Photos Leak, Might Make Landfall Later This Month

nokiaeos

About a month ago, we got our first look at what is rumored to be the next big thing from Nokia camera-wise. Codenamed the ‘EOS,’ a few sources leaked IRL photos of the upcoming smartphone, showing off the bulging PureView camera module on the back and encouraging many consumers who believed that this would be Nokia’s stateside version of the company’s 808 PureView.

Now, we have a couple of leaked low-res product shots to corroborate those IRL images, and a potential release date that has the phone making an official appearance before month’s end. Read more…

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…

Nokia Officially Bringing the 808 PureView to the United States

Over the last few days the NokiaUS Facebook page has been dropping hints left and right of an 808 PureView announcement coming on 6.18.12. For most people it wasn’t immediately obvious, but as the astute folks over at AllThingsD pointed out, every one of the pictures released with the aforementioned date on it had something to do with the number 808.

Unlocked 41MP Nokia 808 PureView May Make it Stateside

A while back people were pretty disappointed when they found out that Nokia would not be bringing their 41-megapixel 808 PureView smartphone to North America at all. 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. Well, it looks like Nokia haven’t entirely given up on the United States after all. Read more…

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.

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.

Nokia Unleashes a Game-Changing 41-Megapixel “PureView” Camera Phone

Nokia dropped a bomb on the cameraphone market today by introducing its new 808 PureView phone — a phone that is capable of capturing 41-megapixel photos. The native resolution of the phone (16:9) produces 38-megapixel images measuring 7152×5368. The phone also allows you to capture 5-megapixel images by condensing every seven pixels into one, which dramatically reduces noise and improves image quality. Other features include a 4-inch screen, 16GB of built-in storage, a Carl Zeiss f/2.4 lens, lossless digital zoom (i.e. cropping a photo out of the giant image), and HD video recording. It’ll hit store shelves in May at a price of €450 (~$600).
