i have n8
and i would have no problem if this had a better camera
but i like having xenon flash
this seems like lie they told about it being fastest camera too when actually xperia arc is fastest
Okay, here is the thing.. I have calculated this from Damian Dinnings reply in the source link above.. He says that the pixel size is 1.4 micro meter as opposed to 1.75 micrometer of N8..
Here is the calculation:
N8: Pixels - 4000 X 3000
So sensor area = 4000 X 1.75 micro X 3000 X 1.75 micro
= 36.75 mm^2
From wikipedia you can see that this is just a bit less than 1/1.8".. So that is 1/1.83" as we know it..
Now, N9: Pixels - 3552 X 2448 (Full sensor size)
So sensor area = 3552 X 1.4 micro X 2448 X 1.4 micro
= 17 mm^2
From wikipedia, you can see that this is just less than 1/3".. So may be 1/3.02"
There you have it folks..
So the sensor is actually quite smaller than N8's.. But the advanced technology and f number of 2.2 should give it a nice boost.. But shouldn't be enough to beat N8 though..
bla bla bla i dont know but my old n95 was also with my lg viewty worst camera phones ever even packed with famous optics
as friend of mine told me a while ago (he is dealing with high end SLR and DSLR): the megapixels are not the most important thing in the camera!

"12-megapixels in a module that size wasn’t going to be possible unless we’d been prepared to compromise the low light performance. We had a lot of internal debate around that point! On one side there are still a lot of people who believe megapixels is a measure of camera performance, while a growing number of others know it can result in compromise. We had the same challenge with the Nokia N8, should we go for 12-megapixels like others with smaller pixels and a smaller module or do what we felt was right? It’s always been our intent to provide cameras with a focus on real world performance. But on the flip side we need to consider what’s believed to be competitive in the market. We don’t believe in adding pixels just for the sake of it, if it doesn’t provide any genuine benefit."
This my friends is one of the things I love about Nokia. They actually try to take the high road and provide the best possible device, not just one with biggest marketable numbers.
Nokia really puts effort in their cameras. Sadly it seems most of the competition just tries to one up the megapixels.
GSMArena says: "A load of Nokia N9 camera and video samples surface, put the n8 to shame."
When it should have been: "A load of Nokia N9 camera and video samples surface, put iPhone, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, etc to shame."
We all know that the N8 is as good as the N9. In fact the Nokia has always had the best camera/video phones.
Too bad for N8 users, but i sthe way technology wants, N8 is yesterday news, same is gong to be to iPhone 4, SG2 and Optimus, there will be new hardware and neo OS (in some cases)...besides Nokia realize they can be on the same technology wagon forever, they are jumping on something more new and innovative.
whats the use...anyway this trojan not going to let this awesome N9 a sucessful model... will miss N9 :(
Cool, I need to see this for eat my own words...
N9 seems to be that Nokia needs for alternative OS to WP7, looks like Nokia is on road again...Also Looks N9 is a well build phone, I hope WP7 phones will be the same quaility (or better is best).
Nokia is taking off and giving Power Toys for ll, is not any more just a phone, they are developing Power Phones, but not based on "brutal force" are based in engineering and dedication...
