Pure Quality. The revolutionary 41MP Camera

The Nokia 808 PureView is an extraordinary camera phone. Simply in terms of its image-making capabilities, it sets a new benchmark for the industry. Think of something approaching an SLR camera – but it’s also a smartphone that fits in your pocket.

The Nokia 808 PureView is equipped with a 41MP sensor and Carl Zeiss lens. What makes its camera exceptional is the large image sensor combined with incredibly powerful image processing technology. It boasts a 3x lossless zoom, which means you can take a photo and zoom in up to three times without any loss of detail. With PureView imaging technology you can create photos that exceed the usual output of the very best dedicated digital cameras. You can take pictures that can be blown up to large format poster sizes without any loss of definition or detail, or you can zoom and crop your pictures whilst maintaining superb quality images. It also features exceptional video recording capabilities, with high quality image and sound. Shoot video in 1080p Full HD, with up to 4x lossless zoom for smooth, consistent image capture with pin-sharp detail. Nokia 808 PureView offers a choice of shooting modes to suit all levels of photographic expertise and experience: Automatic, Scenes and Creative. Automatic is for people who simply want to point, shoot and share high quality photos and videos with minimal input required. Scenes is for photographers who want a bit more control over their end results, but perhaps lack the experience of an out-and-out expert. If you’ve got a specific creative vision in mind, this is the mode to choose. It gives you complete control over camera settings and shooting parameters so you can tailor them to suit any scene or subject.

One year after released, finally the dream phone it promised to be! This phone seemed nothing short of a dream come true for any remaining Symbian fans — all 3 of us! Prior to its introduction at MWC last February, I was getting a bit dismayed by the lack of good choices out there.

Very pleased with this smartphone For all of the Nokia bashing by the media over the past few years, the 808 has been a breath of fresh air for me. The PureView tech on this device makes dedicated picture and video devices a thing of the past…at least when it comes to high quality point and shoot cameras.

Pureview 808 change my perception of a smartphone So lets start of by saying this is my first Symbian Phone and first Amazon Review. I have used Windows Mobile, Andriod, Windows 7 and now new to Symbian. I was excited about the 41 megapixel camera with Pureview Technology. I was not sure with all the negative reviews from Engadget, Mobileburn, and TheVerge that this phone would be utter crap besides the Camera.
