Why people love Nokia N8.
Not for Symbian OS, but for excellent quality (sharp) photos!
By the way photos quality MORE IMPORTANT than your 12.6MP sensor!
Why OmniVision unveils new 12.6MP sensor if Nokia N8 already had?
You must CREATE BETTER camera lens that Nokia N8 already had!
All this news it's strange..............
It means that you can shoot pictures in burst mode at 15 pictures per second.
Oops, my answers should be placed the other way around :)
What's so confusing about it? It just shoots 15 pictures per second. Awesome. Hope that can be adjusted to less then 15. If we added B%W effect, that would look like an old movie.
So what its 60fps? Will you use it on you beloved Blu-ray?
You will have to decrease it to 25/30 anyway.
And for me - the 720p resolution is just fine. For better movie shooting I have a real life camcorder...
I still can't get why everyone is comparing it with NOKIA N8, this camera sensor is capable of shooting 1080p video at 60 frames per second while NOKIA N8 only 720p video at 25 frames per second.
Anyway, good news!
So it's going to take 18 months for Omni Vision to catch up with the Nokia N8. Where will Nokia and Carl Zeiss be in 18 months time I wonder. Megapixels mean very little if the optics can't do the job. This is where the Germans and Carl Zeiss are the world leaders in camera phones and the rest are just trying to catch up with Nokia. The N8 is the industry standard camera phone and I'm sure that Nokia are determined to keep it that way
"but can also capture stills with resolution of 4224x3000 pixels at 15fps" stills @15fps?
m confused :-\
AnonD-3441, 15 Apr 2011They are talking about still pictures here, taking those by this rate would be impressive for ... moreManufacturers use the megapixel descriptions in order to provide something tangeable with the broadest customer base. If they start talking about sensors and sizes then most non technical minded customers would be immediately bored and turned off. If a customer is shown that a 12 megapixel cameraphone will provide a far superior image quality than a 1.3 megapixel one then this is easy for the customer to comprehend. Of course the technical among us will know that the sensor is doing the work and providing the output quality. The megapixel concept is used purely to engage customers on their level and excite them into the purchase.
b^r, 15 Apr 2011hmmm... its good but it's no match to nokia n8's camera.. in ambient light its equivalent to D... moreits nothing like a DSLR ! it has a high mega pixle count for a phone and thats it ! to compare it to one is like comparing a pair of binoculars to the hubble space telescope . ridiculous
AnonD-1544, 14 Apr 2011I don't blame apple for switching to Sony for their new iphone! Watch this video and you'll un... morehmmm... its good but it's no match to nokia n8's camera.. in ambient light its equivalent to DSLR!! in low light better than sony cybershot cam... cause it has the largest sensor on mob. industry!!
AnonD-6166, 14 Apr 2011Wow, it takes pictures at 15 FPS? Epic.They are talking about still pictures here, taking those by this rate would be impressive for a mobilephone. 60fps is for video.
These manufacturers still insist on using megapixels to describe a sensor and it's supposed "quality". It's SENSOR SIZE that determines image quality NOT megapixels! For crying out loud its 2011 not 2005, enough of this megapixel nonsense.
Not being a BSI CMOS is a large disadvantage of this sensor.
mobile phone, if they want to be thin, cant bend the laws of physics and optics. n8 camera is as good as it gets, and its a bulge on a phone. no 9mm phone can have a great camera
This is nice and il like to change my camera for a phone with this feature however if you read on more in the article it say its not capable of shooting 1080p but at the beguining it say it does... anyway its the best advanced in cellphone technology (60 FPS 1080p)
I don't blame apple for switching to Sony for their new iphone! Watch this video and you'll understand what I'm speaking about :
The Camera of the Arc is just top notch! It may indeed be the best Camera you could get on a true super phone.
