SlashGear reports that the iPhone 5 is attempting to do some oversampling of its 8MP photos in order to improve low light performance.
The Nokia 808 PureView showed us how this can work in creating the super pixel, condensing 41MP to either 8, 5 or 3MP. The lower the output, the more oversampling.
The interesting bit is that the switch apparently occurs automatically. I had hoped this would have been the case with the 808 prior to announcement.
Do you reckon Apple did this out of the blue or is this Nokia setting trends again (sadly, people will credit oversampling to iPhone only, and also possibly OIS in iPhone 6).
