Anonymous, 26 Feb 2009N86 can control the light amount entering the image sensor
other worldwide camera phone with ... morein recent years, the convenience offered by cameras in mobile phones has driven an increase in their use, while demand for higher image quality has also continued to grow. In addition, as mobile phone designs have become more refined, and models become smaller and thinner, the need for further miniaturization in mobile phone camera technology has also increased. To meet these requirements, improvements in both image quality and sensor miniaturization must be achieved, but the more the shrinking process is continued, the more difficult it becomes to gather light into the sensor pixels, leading to the risk of image degradation resulting from reduced sensitivity and S/N levels.
The newly developed CMOS image sensor "IMX060PQ" leverages Sony's proprietary formation technology to deliver the industry's smallest unit cell size*1 (1.4µm), and the industry's highest pixel count*1 (12.25 effective megapixel resolution). The implementation of a Cu process that achieves extremely fine interconnections, together with the sensor's unique pixel structure and improvements in condensing efficiency have realized high sensitivity levels and a high S/N ratio, despite the industry's smallest*11.4µm size unit cell. Furthermore, Sony's proprietary "Column-Parallel A/D Conversion technique" minimizes image quality degradation cased by noise that arises during analog processing, while also enabling higher pixel count and frame rates (10 frames/s for "IMX060PQ" and 15frames/s for "IMX046PQ").
By enhancing its "Exmor™" range of CMOS image sensors, used in product lineups such as digital SLR cameras and high definition digital video cameras as well as mobile phones, Sony will aim to meet customer needs for advanced imaging performance comparable to dedicated compact digital still cameras in slimline, camera enabled mobile phones
N86 can control the light amount entering the image sensor
other worldwide camera phone with 2MP/3MP/5MP/8MP/12MP can't do like what N86 can
N86 APerture can change size automatic according to the light at F/2.8,F/3.2,F/4.8
other worldwide camera phone with 2MP/3MP/5MP/8MP/12MP is FIXED AT F/2.8
when taking image in bright light
N86 aperture will change to F/4.8
soon expire idou aperture will not change in bright light cause it is FIXED at F/2.8
when taking image in normal light
N86 aperture will change to F/3.2
soon expire idou aperture will not change in normal light cause it is FIXED at F/2.8
this technology is come from digital camera
Frustrated with Noki, 26 Feb 2009Why, why, why, whY, wHY, WHY, WHY does Nokia insist on repeatedly putting such enormous focus ... moreBy the way, for the record, I have a black Nokia N82 and I love it, except for that one gripe (and the batter could and should be much better).
Why, why, why, whY, wHY, WHY, WHY does Nokia insist on repeatedly putting such enormous focus area in its phone cameras???? On so many occasions have the subjects of my photos come out blurred while the background has come out very sharp. I mean, other manufacturers manage to make cameras with smaller focus areas...
Just before i go get some headache pills,,the score of this fone is low ive just noticed is that from other partys doing the usual battles between companys or is it loyal nokia customers like me annoyed at what they are coming out with????
Still got my xperia to sell yet and maybe innov8,, but,, innov8 is top notch but is lacking the nokia comfortableness i become used to..Their is still that lack of buzz i used to get in the past about buying a new smartfone. It could be down to lack of clamshell smarfones maybe or its the colour of them and shape,,they are all just mono blocks in silver or black there is no shaping like 6630 for example or yellow/blue/red colours,,we need a shake up of design/colour and trusty software out of the box.Thanx if you read this..
Farrokh, 26 Feb 2009if u are so much into cameras, ud better get a digicam what the heck do u see in this fat-axx... moreI have said that for ages about names,,annonymous is useless at least put a letter or a number just anything to distinguish your comment..
if u are so much into cameras, ud better get a digicam what the heck do u see in this fat-axx ugly fone
innovo or idou might be better than this BUT if u want an all-in-all perfect fone then that is nothing but LG's ARENA.
and anyway if u post yr opinion, make yourself a name so that u cud get YOUR answer back u anonymous brainhead
hi,,i have been reading nokia forums for 4 hrs or more today and some of the complaints in their are awful..I have just ordered n85 and hope its ok..
This nokia problem has been around since the 95-1 for me with nokia still using the public for testing purposes..These forums say post your opinion which i am but still buy nokia products but n85 is my last..If you had just bought a tele today and it would not switch channels or the back fell off it you would be straight back for refund/replacement and that goes for hairdryes,,kettles fridges ,i-pods,hi-fi system,,gps reciver,,dvd recorder and on and on..I trust nokia know what they are doing but i myself plus others get fones which are half finished in construction or software untested..People seem to give nokia one last chance before moving to another firm ,,i have been to most of them,,but nokia are no1 but they cannot keep that record with shoddy products at veryy,,very high prices..
Zzzz, 26 Feb 2009Is that the best Nokia can do, just changing the camera of an underpowered N85 ? Samsung must ... moreWhy people spend more money to buy Nokia? because it's reliable and has much more compatibility and ofcourse for it's worldclass standard and platdform.
My experience is," don't buy a nokia phone at nokiausa.com." they will ship to you a use phone while u pay for the new phone. they won't let you exchange or return the phone.
Is this device going to support hardware rendering - ala N95? Or will it be like the N96 and be Software only?
What is this rubbish about the third generation dual LED of the N86 8MP being brighter than Xenon? Look! you guys should get the terminology right. Taking a good photo in the dark or dim light is all about high INTENSITY light in a short period of time (microseconds). No way between here and the planet Mars can third generation dual LED match Xenon or even come close. We are talking intensity ie the power (watts) produced by Xenon flash. It is phenomenal.
This phone needs Xenon flash and cannot be considered as a competitor to a digicam without it. You can debate apertures from sunup to sundown but a camera without Xenon is like food without water!
for the moment, this phone has an edge over n97 for my next upgrade, lets see who wins in the end..
a classic battle..
Anonymous, 26 Feb 20098KB picture? That must be nice! LOL And yes I CAN send MMS with iPhone, there is an app for... moreLet's see... 2MP camera, can't use the Bluetooth, the only attractive part is a multi touch screen... the os is a trap... good looking but like all on Apple, can't customize anything (well can change the icons and the wallpaper, but everything can do that), CAN'T USE YOUR MUSIC AS RINGTONE!! have to pay a loot for that piece of s**t... and the brainless are the "nokia fanboys"???? look... I love apple... I'm writing this on my MacBook Pro (the new one) but the fact is that apple and their products are "Fashion Products"... if you wanna productivity don't buy a iPhone... I have the N95 8GB and the N800... I prefer the N800 (not a phone) over any iPhone!!! the N95? just the best phone on earth. I'm waiting for the N97... That's gonna be GOD!!!!
this phone is amazing, the - ARM 11 434 MHz processor is impressive, and the camera is amazing, i want to buy this phone now , which would replace my nokia 3310. wow
unlike n85. i was hoping that n85 has dis n86's specs. esp, the 8 mp camera. cuz n85 has a better look n better design. dats wat i think. i dono wat u gys think... tell me sumthin
