Anonymous, 16 Jan 2012Hevy postprocessing and small size sensor=big failI agree with you there, its imaging is not that good like n8, no big sensor big fail...
tom222, 16 Jan 2012I can laugh at the picture quality in poor light: this sensor was said to be superior but what... moreOh, I need my n8's 12MP sensor, that is even better than most point and click camera sensors. I use it a lot, more than 1200 pictures taken and near 100 videos taken have made this phone my best multimedia companion.
Is not only de MPs, is the sensor size, is the lens quality, is the proper flash (xenon so far) and other things that make a good camera.
But there are customers who enjoy a lot having an extraordinary camera phone like the n8.
all the sample shots are indoors! how would you expect stellar quality from that! sheesh
I can laugh at the picture quality in poor light: this sensor was said to be superior but what we see is blurred images. Same as with other sensors.
And BTW: why the hell do they put 12MP sensors into the phones? Who needs it? Would't it be better if they focused on making a perfect 8MP sensor?
it seems like the lens of this phone are not oprical glass (see aberrations)they are simple plastic polymer produced of oil,they are more cheap and not so difficult to produce
@gsmarena - pls make a camera comparison review between Sony ericsson satio (12 mpx) and this mobile's 12mpx cam....after this mobile is launched
I'm going to check samples when this phone is out, now i can only guess is it better or not compared to Nokia N8 camera samples and after that I'm going to judge samples not now , for sure.
Ahmed Now, 16 Jan 2012For those that think that phonerena phone samples are excellent, you might want to double chec... moreBoth photos had much less noise than the ones posted here... And for your information, the Sony photos posted according to PA, both the Ion and S, are better than the Lumix in most of the people's opinions.
AnonD-26870, 16 Jan 2012Arc isn't in any way junk but honestly everyone says that Sammy sII with his no name camera ta... morethe Galaxy s2 camera has a sony sensor inside just like apple's 4s( i have a S2 myself :)
AnonD-2075, 16 Jan 2012n8?... N8 is nothing but a digital camera...Symbian is nothing... I will use a 2 mp camera i... moreyeah ,why can't we talk about a 12mp digital cam?! N8 neither a digital cam nor smartphone! you can either buy 2 cheap androids or a 12mp digital cam since N8 fails in both aspects! 12MP sony exmr sensor could do better job than N8
sample pics shows realistic color quality, sharp image having reasonable amount of detail, it could surely compete with other rivals.
For those that think that phonerena phone samples are excellent, you might want to double check the file you are viewing. The files that start with DSC are taken with a digital camera.
Try download the file and view it on your desktop at 1:1 ratio. The photos taken by Xperia S starts with P. It is as noisy as the ones here.
