on the camera, the smaller the aperture the more diffraction there is. Infact, in a point & shoot the max sharpness is found at f/2.8~~~anything higher will proceed to be softer and give a larger DOF and increase the shutter speed.
Truth: EXMOR - Gimmick~~~its just anothe CMOS sensor Sony doesn't care about
Truth: LED lights do have somewhat of an advantage. Its no xenon for photos, but advantageous for video
False: Carl Zeiss means great optics: Uh~~Tessar means nothing. Its a standard issue lens. Patented in 1902. Its old and means nothing. Most cameraphones use plastic if not all of them. Now a day its really easy to make plastic lenses. (Logic: Zeiss doesn't even make some of their DSLR lenses, why would they make nokia's?)
False: Nokia means good image quality and innovation: Well they did pull off great algorithms for the N95 + N82. Each manufacturer bounces up and down. Look how the K750i was the peak of SE, then they sank, but are slowly coming up again. Each manufacturer will come out with something good and innovative sometimes
i was walking on the red path and i saw a shinning red red light on the sky. what was it, i thought that red thing yeah i found. it was or theese were idou and w995. i have been very happy 'cause theese mobile phones are the world's future. what a nice!
all you people are comparing this to a touchscreen phone and because is dosnt have touchscreen you all hate it, whatever nokia come out with you people are not satisfied with it "you guys really like to put somthing down if you dont like it"
this phone is awsome:-)
Nevertheless, the Nokia N86 has one of the most impressively equipped 8 megapixel cameras closing the gap between cameraphones and point-and-shoot cams. It's the first and only cameraphone to offer variable aperture values (F2.4/F3.2/F4.8) and a 28mm wide-angle lens.
You can see the difference between the wide angle and a regular cameraphone lens. Here are two samples of one and the same scene taken simultaneously with a Nokia N86 8MP and another Nokia phone. The samples are downsized to 800x600 pixels as resolution is irrelevant. Just compare the field of view.
N86 wide angled
The other first-ever is the variable aperture. Having a variable aperture (like a regular digicam) instead of a fixed aperture (like a regular cameraphone) gives you one more way of controlling the amount of light that reaches the camera sensor.
In other words, smaller F aperture numbers let more light in, while higher aperture numbers reduce the incoming light. You still get the same exposure, as the camera compensates for the various aperture settings by varying the shutter speed or the ISO, which are the two other factors that determine the total amount of light that gets in.
But leaving the photography primer aside, the advertized aperture values of Nokia N86 8MP (F2.4/F3.2/F4.8) have two distinctive benefits.
The first benefit is that at F2.4 the N86 camera has more light to work with as compared to the standard F2.8 value of all cameraphones we've seen so far. In low light conditions that allows you to get higher shutter speeds (possibly less handshake blur) or lower ISO (possibly less noise) or even both.
The second benefit from the variable aperture is that when there's enough light, the camera sensor can let the aperture close down a bit more (F3.2/F4.8) thus creating images that are usually sharper and with better depth of focus field.
Here are several full-res camera shots taken with the Nokia N86 8MP at the Nokia booth. If you check out the images EXIF data however you would see that the aperture value is F2.8, which doesn't really match what Nokia advertized. We guess the N86 unit we used was a too early one to really show its potential.
SE IDOU is a digital camera... with a mobile phone.
Nokia N86 is a mobile phone... but, well, with a camera I guess, from other supplier.
hopefully this handset has better reviews then the N96. and the 8 megapixel better be good for it to be compared with the sony ericsson c905.
Anonymous, 10 Mar 2009I don't see any innovation from Nokia, it's an empty talk.who lead he stay n attain 1st position not last n nokia is no1 n if u don understand the meaning of innovation wht can we doooooooo????????increased mgp is not b considered as innovation!!!se is now just learning how to spell symbian huh!!funnyy

check out our next upcoming LTE (LONG TERM EVOLUTION) device from NOKIA THE LEADING INNOVATOR!!
heyy a good news for nokia fan, nokia has decided n committed to LTE (Long Term evolution) as thr preferred network for devices soon.LTE for faster data rates,qucker response time n longer battery life in order to enjoy the benefits of services such as voice over IP n multimedia telephony.
Long Term Evolution (LTE),the technology expected to b used by the vast majority of wireless carries to dish up next-gen wireless broadband,has been approved by the 3rd-gen Partnership Project (3GPP).
LTE performance over 3GPP standarized technologies realizes data rates of moe than 100 MB per secondover distances of several hundred meters,while maintaining exellent throughput at the EDGE of typical urban radio cells.But those mobile will b from different platform.
iolo003, 10 Mar 2009your not getting my point Kal, no wonder why you have many enemies in this page, you cant read... moreHuh dude it's talk of the town for Nokia users and fanboys. Nokia sure got everyones attention creating hypes by not releasing it soon. But I wonder how they will live up to it. Doesn't offer anything new other than 8mp cam with variable apperture and wide angle. Real talk of the town is Omnia HD and yes that Idou came out of nowhere and got everyone puzzled. I read there wasn't a single clap when they annouced it.
dave, 10 Mar 2009i am just thinking what will be happen if nokia has 12MP but the other phone only has 8MP... ... moreif the sony ericsson is better phone have a better camera, than why nokia is nomber 1, and sony ericsson nomber 4, in global top list

This is a great phone. Surely i'll buy this phone it's so cool, this is what i want. This phone so cute i love this phone.

There is nothing to go ga-ga over it at this pont of time. Nokia officially released some prints (taken with n86) and that dosen't match with the actual images taken with the phone at MWC. They still need to prove that it is infact closing the gap between a mobile phone and a standalone one. So those already claiming this is best, should just shut up and wait.
