Nokia 808 PureView more official samples (and Skateboarder in the air)

| March 6, 2012 | 65 Replies

Stumbled on an interesting reaction at Pentax Forums about the Nokia 808 PureView (I was actually looking for an older post of ours to find some details but ended up there). The reactions from this camera forum there seem quite positive.

In the first few pages of that thread I found a sample photo there I hadn’t seen before.

Oh, since skateboarders in the air appears to be benchmarks of fast lenses :p here’s a photo of a skate boarder frozen in air that a forum member posted (though it’s an official Nokia shot). This is just a screenshot. Link here:

I’m sure I’ve been able to capture similar freeze frame images on the likes of N82 at sport mode (though perhaps not with this clarity?).

I’m not sure where the main gallery view is but editing the URL, you can see the other samples.





Also, I’m such a camera noob, I didn’t realise photos in silhouettes still held this much data. No photoshop even necessary as highlighting causes the faces to be seen, but I think this is one a user on the forum edited.
