Nokia’s competitors are weeping today , first none were able to cross the mobile photography benchmark set my and today Nokia trumped them and other camera manufacturers by launching Nokia 808 Pureview with a 41 MP Carl Zeiss Sensor.
It was no easy feat, Nokia made use of Satellite imaging technology and it took 5 years in the making to make this beautiful phone.
Well this was the big news today, at least it was within the realms of the MA students.
I am incredibly sceptical about this silly camera on phone business and will start by saying; 'this is not a phone, its a camera with a phone on it!' (as mentioned on here a few weeks ago). Secondly, there isn't even a Digital SLR (let alone a compact) with this size MP, so how on earth Nokia can do this I don't know. Thirdly, if it is true about the Pixelage, then how can you store the images with only 16gb storage. Fourthly, I bet the lens is plastic an the size of an Ants eye so what a waste of time.
Technologies aside, if this is at all true, this could really turn 'phones with cameras' upside down. Personally I think its a publicity stunt and a load of old pooy pixels...
