  • Nokia 808 PureVew with a 41 megapixel camera - that "out MP" Nikon D800!

    Nokia just introduced their 808 PureView smart phone with a 41 MP camera. This is even higher than the yet to be marketed Nikon D800 at 36MP! Nokia and Nikon think there are consumers who simply believe more MP is better. Very soon people will begin to learn very fast more MP is not everything. Rather the quality of the MP is much more important above a certain MP threshold. Very much like Kodak, Nokia seems to be taking another wrong turn or is it a technology of the future at reducing noise via pixel binning and digital zooming? Anyone interest in a smart phone with 41 MP camera at just about USD600 a piece? Below is the link for more info.

        The promotional pictures provided by Nokia look impressive. Pixel binning was at one time used very effectively by Fuji in some of its camera to reduce noise. Now that technology allows much higher pixel sensors to be cost effectively made, pixel binning may be a cost effective way to reduce noise. However the picture quality of a mobile phone is very unlikely to come near to even the cheapest of entry level dslr. This is mainly due to the slim requirement of mobile phones which severly constrain the needed lens to sensor light path distance. I can see Nokia 800 has a lens that protrudes from its body, but it is still relativel small even when compared to high quality traditional PnS cameras. Very similar to existing high end slim PnS camera, quality will drop once its light path is bent to accomodate the phone's slimness. However without comparing to any DSLR, the picture quality of slim PnS, especially when viewed on computer screen, can be very impressive. I think that is what Nokia is trying to achieve.

          Yes, they had done it before with nokia N8. Nokia probably targeting PnS consumer with this phone. But i still believe with technique, a little know how, and PP this camera phone can beat entry level DSLR. For example, this person (who obviously had lots of time) compared it with Nikon D800E!
