Sources have told The Verge that Nokia plans to release a Lumia device with a similar camera sensor found on the Nokia 808 Pureview. That means lossless zoom. Codenamed Nokia EOS, The Verge also claims it will be built using aluminum rather than the typical polycarbonate found on recent Nokia Lumia devices.
If you just upload your photos to Facebook, more camera megapixels don’t necessarily mean better. The photos displayed in your Facebook Timeline are resized to 404 x 404 pixels. If you make it a highlighted photo, it becomes 843 x 403 pixels. As a reminder, a 3 megapixel photo is about 2048 x 1536 pixels dimension. That’s even more resolution than the latest 13-inch Macbook Air screen which displays 1440 x 900 pixels.
I got to play with a Nokia 808 Pureview at a Nokia store in Kuala Lumpur. I like shooting videos, so I checked out the zooming capabilities of the camera while recording. Video after the jump.
Both have large sensors and fit in your pocket. One is a dedicated camera, the other is a camera… with a phone. DCfever took some photos with the 2 devices for comparison. This is something I personally wanted to see because I’m interested in both cameras. Take a look, tell us which photos you like better, and guess which camera is the Nokia 808 Pureview. Is the Sony RX100 a PureView killer?
The Nokia 808 PureView arrives in Malaysia today for 1899 MYR ($600 USD). The Symbian device features a new imaging technology from Nokia and Carl Zeiss with a 41 megapixel camera sensor. Cameraphone fanatics have been waiting for this device.
Nokia in the Philippines just hinted on their Facebook page that “something BIG is coming this weekend.” The caption accompanies four photos. Since the Nokia 808 PureView is an imaging powerhouse, many of the fan page commenters believe this is a hint for the Symbian device’s release in the country.
