The app specifically shows 2x telephoto zoom, which is the standard for phones right now. The Nokia 5 can’t make use of it of course, even HMD’s only dual camera phone – the Nokia 8 – has a identical field of view on its two cameras. But this app shows what could come in the future.
So far no phone on the market does both telephoto and wide-angle. We’ve already heard the first murmurs of phones with three cameras but chances are that HMD is just considering two separate models. All Nokia 9 rumors so far point to a two-camera solution.
There’s another less exciting change to the camera app – you can now manually select Shutter speed and ISO on the Nokia 5. Values go between 1/500s and 1s for the shutter and 100 to 2,000 for ISO.
Totally agree! If they can give me half of what the 1020's camera offered, I'm sold.
Well I'm from the old Nokia niche crowd. I don't care so much about having the thinnest or "coolest" phone. I've had the 808 and 1020 so I want Nokia to be all about having the BEST camera possible..if they can do that, I'll be back on board.
