Nokia has come up with a new handset Nokia 808 Pureview. It is more positioned as a camera than a smartphone. Camera specifications make it not only best among the smartphones, but also comparable to other compact camera models available in the market. Let us look at these camera specifications in Nokia 808 Pureview.
It was a dream come true project for Nokia. The company introduced this handset featuring a 41-megapixel CMOS camera. This measures 1/1.2 inches which is much larger than that of N8's and also most superior compact cameras like Fujifilm FinePix X10 and Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5.
Nokia 808 Pureview uses the famous Carl Zeiss-branded optics featuring moulded glass and also a spherical lens. The high resolution camera is designed to operate in multiple modes. You can operate this camera phone in Creative mode, where you have lots of camera controls and it gives even minute details of an image when zoomed to 100 %. In low light conditions, it maintains less noise, as well.
More advance users have options for bracketing mode which helps in time lapse recording and HDR photography. An optional tripod mount adapter is also offered by Nokia for those who look to stabilize the device for shooting. This is quite helpful in taking still images. The shutter lag of this camera is also minimal and we can see a little lag of 1 to 2 seconds when shooting in full resolution. The swipe to zoom functionality with just one finger is a feature which is worth mentioning and adds to user convenience.
Nokia's PureView Pro imaging technology will deliver pictures of extreme quality with very minute details at your necessity. The Xenon flash with this camera is about double powerful comparing that of N8. You can access the camera from the lock screen in just 1 second when the hardware shutter button is pressed. There are shortcuts to upload the photos directly from the camera section to social networking sites. Users can work on the default 5MP or 8MP mode in normal photography scenarios, as well.
Nokia 808 Pureview which is powered by 1.3GHz single-core processor runs on Nokia Symbian OS. This camera phone is priced at around Rs. 34,000/-.
