I gave a good thought before deciding to buy the best set with the best 8MP camera available in the market. I thought why wil I buy N86? Other feature wise it's little to no different than my once Awesome N95 8GB. But Nokia says it has a great 8MP camera! That's enough to buy it. So, I set off to my friends hous who recently bought N86 to check on the camera. The photo's outdoor looked great on the 2.6" screen but in some indoor photos I noticed some noises even in this tiny resolution! I wasn't so surprised then. But when I saw then on computer screen I was dumbstruck! Some photo's looked even a bit worse than my N95. And the typical Nokia Greenish waves are there too! I thought in their first 8MP nokia wouldn't repeat that mistake. I got off to get my Omnia HD then and I see it even gets too close to some of the pics of my cybarshot! And video? Well, the HD ones are a bit of choppy due to the framerate but I still managed to get great screenshots which looked like they were taken from quite a good 1.3MP camera. And the D1 is simply mind blowing. The best in class. Can u guess how a censor that records HD responds to lower resolution video's? I think even OHD's upscaled D1 videos can roughly pass for nearby HD. So, I'm happy. But still if u want a quite good 8MP camera phone with capabilities to shoot low noisy pics in outdoor cloudy days for a medium price then u can go for N86. It's smartphone capabilities are pretty good too. Cheers!
