Are you a photo blogger, hobbyist, or scouting for the best digital camera or even a DLSR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex) camera with the best and highest resolution? Then I think you might want to consider checking Finnish’ latest smartphone innovation – Nokia 808 PureView. Nokia sure does have something under their sleeves when they showed this off during the recent Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2012 at Barcelona, Spain. You want to know why is this Nokia 808 PureView can bring so much joy into your photo life experience? It packs a 41MP (megapixels) resolution which is five times higher than those latest and typical high-end smartphones out in the market right now. And not only that. Of course having a high resolution camera like that won’t really serve its purpose without a high-end optic lens. They also developed their Carl Zeiss optics to match the performance of their powerful high resolution camera of Nokia 808 PureView. In order for people to obtain high resolution photos, they developed the optics to be ten times greater or higher than a typical SLR lenses. This is really incredible and the resolution Nokia 808 PureView is even higher with the not yet released Canon EOS 1D-X which will sport only an 18MP resolution. Unfortunately, Nokia admits that they can’t add an optical zoom with this high resolution camera smartphone. Damian Dinning of Nokia says that it will be really hard for a high performance optical zoom in a device that fits in your pocket.
Nokia 808 PureView’s high resolution camera is the main attraction of this smartphone and up until now many critics can’t really believe that Nokia have really developed such a powerful camera that can produce high resolution photos even on dim or low lights. A combination of 41MP resolution camera and ten times powerful Carl Zeiss optics. It’s not really bad considering that they are the first smartphone provider that was able to developed a high resolution camera mobile phone.
