Nokia 808

Post by JohnFredC » Mon Feb 27, 2012 5:30 pm

New 41MP camera phone from Nokia. Archive w/three sample images for download here.

They claim these are 5368x7152 out of the camera!

If this is for real...

Edit:

Well apparently it is real: here is a PDF explaining the technology.

Fascinating.

For a camera, 41 MP resolution is special. But for a cellular phone it's extraordinary! :shock: Just wondering who will need that...

Hi Helmut

Yeh, 43 mp sounds silly for a cell phone.

But read this pdf from Nokia...

Very interesting. Inventive, even.

Put a sensor like that in a small camera (such as the Sony T series) with a decent optical zoom to augment the digital zoom they discuss in the white paper, and you would have a very portable "all circumstances" camera with images far superior/more detailed than any so far conceived of in that size equipment.
