When it comes to taking the best digital photos, it's the quality of the lens and the sensor that count, not just the quantity of pixels. The Nokia N86 8MP is the first mobile device with variable aperture
For starters, the device has a variable aperture, f/2.4 to f/4.8, for solid performance in low and bright light alike, and the camera features a mechanical shutter that is capable of shutter speeds as fast as 1/1000th second. A strong, dual LED flash (3rd generation, 60% brighter) and a wide angle Carl Zeiss lens complete the package.

Dan, 25 Mar 2009Does this have a pedestrian compass, the same as Nokia 6210 Navigator?yes, it does have a compass:-)
Idou does not have varauable appreture, so it can not live up the nokia n86 which closes the gap between stand alone cameras, the nokia n86 is a full fleged camera with a phone stuck to it, you just have to read the specs.

Dats 1 major bad move.i guess u wil say nokia invented motion sensitive games too.all i knw is dat nokia is always rich enuf to buy other small firms ideas into its fone and pretend as if it can invent anytin.
Ahmad, 25 Mar 2009the pics are showing N85 ??? wts this??? its because the N86 was originally planned to be the N85 refresh leaked in the Nokia road map late last year
i dunno why every1 here are talkiing about the camera of the phones...this is supposed to be a wall for discussing phones, isn't it? i think it's no use talking about cameras. if we just let aside the camera's and think of the phone overlly, than N86 is really nowhere nearby a surprise. it's just packed with a rly old design and features. it's really no mach as a even a phone comparing with SE Idou even if we don't give the camera's any thought. reading all these u may think I'm quite a SE fan but Im tellin u Im not. So why compare N86 with Idou? Nokia fan's come on we have a monster on the go...the N97. leave the N97's 5MP and 12MP of Idou and compare the phones. N97 is way better than Idou in many sides. but still i must say Idou is a quite charming phone. so if u want a All IN oNe mobile than get N97 and if want a pretty good and pocketable 12MP camera mobile with quite some handy features in ur palm than go for Idou....

anonymous, 24 Mar 2009N86 is still under development and idou too.so staying under development both device produce s... moreBut you are not fair if you compare idou with N86 at the moment coz as you see there is no 12MP EXMOR sensor on idou prototype even there is no cybershoot or EXMOR logo on idou cover also the prototype lens is not 28mm wide angel so it is not real idou camera quality, there are 8 months left for developing idou..too early we make a complain about idou camera quality...EXMOR sensor it self will be shipped starting this month and the lens it self will be shipped in september so that is why SE didnt allow us to use idou camera at MWC and that is why there is no picture sample of idou camera in official SE site but iam suprised that why did gsmarena take picture samples from idou prototype?
the picture samples cant be used as real idou camera quality refference coz the prototype has diffe CMOS and lens.idou will use IMX060PQ EXMOR sensor and IU060F lens like official SONY announcement.
you and gsmarena are not fair, gsmarena just took the pictures from Fony.sk site not from official sony ericsson site.
i think you can be happy with your N86 camera quality but we still wait the real idou camera picture quality till september but we have already seen 8MP EXMOR CMOS sensor picture quality on SE S001, those picture sample are great.
