The wait is over for all those interested in camera, pixles and the jaw-dropping 41 MP loaded Nokia PureView technology. Nokia finally launches its 41 megapixel camera phone – the Nokia 808 PureView – in India at a price of Rs 33,899. The phone is armed with a 41 megapixel camera with a never seen before in camera 1/1.2” sensor with Carl Zeiss optics. Just to remind you, the sensor in 808 is just a tad smaller than the CX sensor in Nikon’s 1 series interchangeable lens camras!
But its not that you have to burn all your memory slot with high MP’s while shooting images. 808 also allows you to capture image in a 2 megapixel, 3 megapixel, 5 megapixel, high resolution 8 megapixel or full resolution. Though the maximum resolution that can be shot with the 808 PureView is 38 megapixels in 4:3 aspect ratio and 34 megapixels in 16:9 mode. And at its max resolution you get an image at 300 dpi and you can print it to a larger than A3 prints at 300 dpi. Yes, that is the same standard print resolution for any glossy magazine.
The only big let down would be the OS which is Nokia’s Symbian Belle operating system.
