Nokia PureView 808 CroppedWe’ve published sample photos from the new Nokia PureView 808 – it features a large 41 megapixel sensor with a Carl Zeiss f/2.4 lens. It uses a method of “pixel oversampling” to enable higher quality 5 and 8 megapixel images, as well as “optical zoom” without any image quality loss, without having to have a large zoom lens in the camera phone. You can read a full review of the Nokia PureView 808 (at ePHOTOzine), or view our Nokia PureView 808 sample photos here.

“The Nokia PureView 808 features a large 41 megapixel sensor. This is not only a much higher resolution than other mobile phones (with others maxing out at 16 megapixels), it’s also vastly higher than compact cameras (max 18.2mp), compact system cameras (max 24.3mp), digital SLRs (max 36.3mp), and is even higher than a number of medium format cameras!”

Nokia PureView 808 WhiteThe new Nokia PureView 808 features a large 41 megapixel sensor, Carl Zeiss Tessar f/2.4 lens equivalent to 26/28mm depending on whether you’re shooting in 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratio, and a large 4inch screen, 16GB ram, MicroSD slot for expansion and HDMI out. The camera phone is Nokia’s first product to include PureView technology, and this means when shooting 5 megapixel images you can use 3x zoom without any loss in image quality. When recording Full HD video you can also zoom in 4x. ePHOTOzine has posted full size sample photos using the different modes available, including ISO samples from ISO50 to ISO1600.

Nokia N8 Camera Lens

It’s roughly 18+ months since the Nokia N8 was launched, and also 18+ months since I got the Nokia N8 (I bought it as soon as it was available) – which means I’ve been using the camera on the phone for 18+ months now, and I’m still impressed by the image quality the camera produces, even compared to more modern alternatives.

Nokia N8 Features:

The Nokia N8 made a big splash when it was announced due to it’s 12 megapixel 1/1.83″ (1.75 micron pixels) digital camera sized sensor, and 28mm f/2.8 carl zeiss lens. This is similar in size to those that you’d find in serious compact digital cameras, and is larger than most compacts, such as the Nikon Coolpix P300, (1/2.33″ size), and compared to the more normal small sized mobile phone cameras – even on better ones such as the Sony Exmor R (backlit CMOS) sensors the size is smaller at 1/3.2″ (1.4 micron pixels).

Some would say, including me, that 2012 has been one of the most exciting years for the photography and digital camera industry, while the low-end compact camera market has been in decline due to the improvement and adoption of smartphones (such as the amazing Nokia PureView 808), there has been increasing improvements in pocket zoom cameras, ultra zoom bridge cameras, Digital SLRs and mirrorless cameras.

Bang for buck or value for money has been at it’s highest ever, with compact 10x optical zoom lens cameras available for £99 with optical image stabilisation, such as the Panasonic Lumix SZ1. Previous years you were unlikely to get such a high level of optical zoom from a branded camera for under £100.

Canon Powershot SX50 HS

Bridge cameras have reached the highest level of optical zoom ever – first with the 42x optical zoom lens Nikon Coolpix P510 (equivalent to 24 to 1000mm), then with the even more incredible 50x optical zoom lens Canon Powershot SX50 HS (equivalent to 24 to 1200mm!). WOW!

Nikon D800 Front

Digital SLRs have seen a big refresh from all of the major manufacturers, with full-frame Digital SLRs from Nikon (3), Canon (3), and Sony (1), with Nikon and Canon both offering professional high speed DSLRs the Nikon D4 and Canon EOS 1D X, mid-range professional DSLRs the 36.3 megapixel Nikon D800 (and D800E) and Canon EOS 5D Mark III, and new entry level full-frame Digital SLRs, the Nikon D600 and Canon EOS 6D. Sony recently introduced the full-frame Sony Alpha A99 with continuous AF during video.

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Black

More mirrorless cameras have been introduced this year than ever before, with models from all the major manufacturers, with very few left out, in fact with those that haven’t joined the market suffered, with Kodak leaving the digital camera market for example. New models have been introduced by Olympus, Panasonic, Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Fujifilm, Sony, including new weather-sealed models from Olympus, with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and Panasonic, with the Panasonic Lumix GH3.

Next year should be exciting, with CES 2013 kicking off the year, where it’s usual for a whole new camera range to be introduced, particularly in the consumer of point and shoot range.
