Nokia has released a couple of new example photos captured with the 41 megapixel camera phone Nokia 808 PureView. All images should have increased exposure

Nokia 808 PureView at the beach

The four new photos was captured at a sunny beach three weeks ago. Which tells us that the image quality is probably very close to what the final product will produce. For those not familiar with the new Nokia 808 PureView phone, we explained how it was possible to cramp a 41 megapixel sensor in a small camera phone body in the announcement article.

The set of images was published to the official Nokia Flickr account, but one of our members also uploaded the Esato photo section where we host a large collection of example photos taken with mobile phone cameras.

One of the photos are taken in a 4:3 aspect ratio in 38 megapixel and one photo is 34 megapixel large taken in 16:9 ratio. The other two images represent a 8 megapixel and 5 megapixel settings. By examining the photo histograms, we found that all images was a little dark. Adobe Camera Raw auto exposure suggested that the exposure should be lifted with 0.8, 0.6, 0.35 and 0.6 EV. We agree. It is always better to save the lightest part of a photo and push the histogram as far to the right as possible. That's not what the Nokia 808 PureView has done with these photos.

WOW, a Nokia fanboy
The more amount of mega pixel said nothing about quality.

Depends what you call quality, the reso lution is much greater so a sharper and more detailed image is produced. I would say that improves quality.
Leave brand bias out of it for once...

Nokia fanboy?:D I use SE phones only for 7 years now. And I'm not saying WOW at amount of mega pixel, I'm saying WOW at quality of photos... Just look at them, even at full resolution, in theory it should produce low quality, but it doesn't. 38MP photo is much clearer than 12MP photo from Xperia S. In case of Xperia S You are right, mega pixel says nothing And on top of that Nokia has xenon flash. It's real shame that the phone itself is pretty bad...

Why is it bad ? im sure apart from the low screen resolution it being quite good to use. Sure Symbian isnt being supported much now but its still a very capable OS even if it lacks the quantity of apps of Android.

Hmm You are right, the screen resolution is the only hardware concern(and CPU, it could be dual-core, even if it can record 1080p video, I've seen it stutter, maybe final software will fix this problem). I'm just so "addicted" to Android I consider a phone with Symbian pretty useless. I mean, all the apps I have would be gone, google sync, calendar, contacts, flash in web browser.

Symbian has flash in browsers. I still use my N8 as my main phone as it hasnt had a worthy competitor imo for its all round complete package. The camera was the main selling point however.
I wont be buying a Symbian phone again even though i think the OS is great.
