Samsung is wasting its time developing more MP modules. Why not just improve the camera lens and CMOS, instead of making this useless upgrades. 8MP pics are huge and take too much space.
A 3MP camera w/ better and wider lens, image processing, and autofocus is better than a 12MP camera w/ nothing.
1- wider lens
2- material quality of the product
3- better cpu and processings
is the issue of better quality after 5 mp or even 3 mp.
more than that will cause parasites that must be wiped out with phones software. a total waste.
A ideal camera phone to make with todays tech level
is a mixture of n95+viewty+iphone
to the post below:
do you mean the same apple that released a "high end phone" with a 2MP camera when the industry average for high end phones was 3MP? IF apple decides to release another phone, it most likely will not be a leader in the camera arena
To the poster below: Your Sony will not be obsolete. A 8MP phone will not beat an 8MP dedicated camera for some time yet. The quality of the shots you take with your Cybershot camera will be amazing compared to this.
I was sorta scared this would happen although i knew it would... so any ways 8 MP =| man its no fun whats the use of having my 8MP cybershot now... i donno i guess at times its just nice to take pictures from a camera than a camera phone...
p.s. i do know its a module and not the phone it self.
Why does everyone here assumed this is a cameraphone?
The title said
"World’s thinnest 8 megapixel CAMERAPHONE MODULE by Samsung"
Get it? A CAMERAPHONE MODULE! It means a camera module for the phone...jeez....
quality... well, it'll be awful. it's just a "mpx rush", not a QUALITY rush. stupid marketing movement for bird-brian people. don't be naive. wanna (relatively) good camera in your cell - buy ONLY these equipped with AUTOFOCUS and MACRO MODE. 2mpx SE k750 will be better than this Samsung CRAP.
haha! Guys its a camera module.. the camera of the phone that they will released for 2008..
has everybody gone crazy....this is not a phone its a cameraphone module which means this is what the cameras are going to be ilke....it doesnt mean the phone is going to be that small wow lmfaooooo it make me crack up....
to that person that said oohh their has to be insurance on the phone because its too small...well buddy im sure the phones issnt going to be that small only the god damn camera
>>why would anyone want a phone that small...its a stupid idea!
It's only the camera component to fit into the phone - not the whole phone!! :) (stupid idea? hmmm... let's leave it there!)
obviously some of u cant read but this is not the phone its a module which means this is just the camera and yes its nice i like but quality is what matter not just more pixels so lets wait and see the quality
Make sure that there is insurance avaliable on this phone ... as people will tend too loose small things and m sure this willl indeed misplace soon...
PoPo, you want a big screen?? How big of a screen do you expect on a phone this size.. Seriously, how dumb was that comment you posted..
it's not the phone that will be so small,it the camera module!!!!
Sure it will be a stupid idea, if you want more than 5 megapixel in Phone, BETTER BUY a CAMERA... for me 3 is OK
it aint a mobile phone!! Its a 8mp camera to be put in to a phone later.
