Aah!! From last night HTC event and the so called hype around that ultrapixel, all the hype went flat now. Nobody touches the dominance of Nokia in Imaging.

Saw the comments from Damian Dinning and its all clear to everyone who understand photography even a little.

So its now over to 25th Feb when nokia is suppose to release Lumia1000 aka EOS and things will be all clear that if 808 gets a big brother joining the family or not.

If 808 gets a big brother I will go with that otherwise I will order 808 on 26th Feb. March should see a new pureview coming to my hands, only question is will it be symbian or MS platform.

A special thanks to Carol as well for contributing to the success of 808 till now in this forum.

Carol we will be looking for more of your comments on 25th Feb for sure :)

> In reply to MeandMe @ 2013-02-19 15:10 from iwpJ - click to readme too, I can't wait for the 25th of February to see what earthquake the world will get from Nokia and I thinks it's name will be ((NOKIA LASER))as leaked from some sources :)

and I really hope the quality will be the same as the Symbian's 808 pureview.

I had N8 for almost 1 year and I have now Lumia 800 so I really know how windows phone OS is very baaaaaaaaad in terms of imaging quality and I read a lot about this...Nokia have now very difficult challenge and hoping not to fail.

GO GO Nokia...Your fans trust you :)

Hey mate...I agree with you ...

I hate windows earlier so much. Due to lack many good thing that have in symbian. I have this king of hill. But win8 gives me some hope with new features and some useful apps. Now I'm counting finger for 25th of feb to see whts Nokia up to.

If those not working for you, better go Nokia Care.

Very important to all people who are waiting like me for the new Nokia 41 mp WP pureview (catwalk, EOS or what ever it is) this is some facts and cons about the WP in imaging section :
------------------------------------------------­------------------------------------------------­----------------------------
1- WP OS still has no face detection in the main camera app and it produces very shiny and highlight faces during the day light or night photos with flash (Symbian does great performance of face detection)

2- WP OS white balance is very bad in treating the colors which some times produces blue and green strange noise (Symbian does perfect Job)

3- WP OS has no zoom during the video recording...before recording only (Symbian all the way)

4- WP OS can't handle multi different light conditions in the same time during video recording as we see some videos makes you feel it plays with exposure in very bad way (Symbian is King)

5- WP OS gives the worst daylight quality among all the biggest 3 operating systems (Android, IOS, WP) it gives strange square details like it's a minecraft details (Symbian is the King of them all)

6-WP OS has problem with exposure tuning for still photos...doesn't work all the time and some times I need to exit the camera and back again to tune it as I want.

but however all of this...the portico update for Lumia 920 , the performance of lumia 510 and lumia 620 giving me the hope that Nokia now trying hard to develop and fix the WP OS to make it ready for the next big surprise and the real deal and I think the new pureview will come with this spec:

1- 800*400 (800*480) WVGA resolution with 4, 4.3 inch display and 217 ppi or above.

2- 1.5 duel core S4 chipset and 1 gig of ram. (or may be 1 duel only if it will not be a flagship)

3- Micro SD card support and NFC.

4- DLNA and I hope (HDMI port) and imagine UPnP technology (mouse and keyboard ability)

5-Nokia rich audio recording and optical image stabilization.

6-Xenon flash (if not it will be a joke)

7-First face detection in WP OS for the main camera app (not talking about the smart shoot and camera extras)

8-touch focus not touch to shoot.

9-quick lunch like the 808's one (faster than the WP integrated feature)

10-some new cool stuff and tricks from scalado.

11- I hope better focal range (808 pureview has 15cm wish is really big distance and some times it needs 20 cm to get the focus in some conditions comparing to N8 which has 10 cm, IPhone and galaxy S3 which is 6 cm only)

12-better zooming function in the gallery like 808 tapping one.

12-Oversampling technology, if pinning I will kill my self :)

and Finally I DO Hope that the quality of photos and Video will be the same as 808 pureview (i'll not say better) because if the new Pureview does great job in terms of details and quality so Nokia really defeat one from the biggest disadvantage in this OS which is imaging quality...beside all the features which exists in the Symbian.

I wish for Nokia all goodness in the next MWC...GO GO NOKIA destroy all the expectations :)
