Gizmodo: Nokia 808 PureView “That camera is damn good – made compact cameras and maybe even bridge cameras obsolete”

Guess who else loves the PureView? Gizmodo! They’re not at all keen on the fact that it’s Symbian, but they do love the PureView camera.


  • That camera is damn good –
  • a camera with a phone attached
  • Nokia’s camera app is pretty solid, with more options than you can shake a stick at.
  • you can zoom right in for details you can’t even see with the naked eye.
  • Zooming in reveals text on faraway buildings; the stalks of dandelions or even the woven detail of fabrics – it can be almost microscopic at times.
  • Nokia’s lossless digital zoom, which works as advertised
  • which is so much more intuitive (single finger zoom)
  • The camera really is as impressive as Nokia’s claimed
  • produces incredibly crisp and true-to-life 5MP shots, with digital zoom that rivals optical zooms
  • full sensor size, you get incredibly-detailed images that are surprisingly crisp and rich all the way down to actual pixel size.
  • Nokia’s really set the next benchmark for camera phone imaging
  •  made compact cameras and maybe even bridge cameras obsolete.

They note some trouble getting focus in Macro

Obviously, before anyone tries to suggest it, no these guys aren’t paid for such opinions. Clearly, they (SlashGear, Engadget and now Gizmodo) know a good thing when they see one and they’ve been praising Nokia for a while now.
