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).

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.

“The Nokia N8 Camera: One of the greatly anticipated (and hyped) features of the Nokia N8 is the 12 megapixel camera with Xenon flash. Nokia have put in a 12 megapixel sensor that is the same size as you find in your typical compact digital camera from Canon, Panasonic etc, and whilst nowhere near as good as the large sensor you would find in a Digital SLR, it is an improvement over the tiny sensors found in every other camera phone. As proof to how serious Nokia are taking the camera abilities of the N8, they posted 34 questions and answers about JUST the camera on the phone.”

Wired.com say that new cellphones with cameras are beginning to impact on sales of low-end digital cameras – more so with the ever increasing focus on camera quality and features in mobile phones – such as the f2.4 lens in the Nokia N86 8mp shown above, and Xenon flash in the Sony Satio.


“Handsets soon may begin to cannibalize the low end of the digital still camera market as they incorporate higher megapixels and flash capabilities,” says Pam Tufegdzic, consumer electronics analyst at iSuppli in a statement. “This is likely to occur first in Asia and Europe as consumers in these regions seem to be more comfortable with taking pictures using camera phones.”
