In ‘s post earlier today on the Nokia 808 PureView, reader, dss shared some images also taken by the 808, showing all other smartphones just how to take a picture. The shots in this post are merely screenshots. Go check the links out yourself. It’s another set of images that makes you go and wonder, ‘are these really from a PHONE?’.

This second image is quite something.

The following three images are screenshot crops. The detail in the wisps and strands of hair blows my mind.

Oversampling means that despite the final image being at 8mp, you still have so much incredible detail because each and every pixel counts for something (and isn’t simply an image that looks good in the viewfinder).

Whilst you’re checking out those links, you might want to look back at these too as they continue to blow my mind. It’s unbelievable that Nokia has something this good and to this day hasn’t managed to get it into a consumer ready Lumia.

I stumbled across this on flickr (Richard M Marshall). Absolutely crazy.
