Nokia 808 – PureView – Detailed Review – Full Resolution Image Samples and Videos

Nokia 808 – Pure View
Nokia 808 – Pure View is one the magnificent smart phone from Nokia. Truly a Nokia N8 successor. What made all the fans wow about this Symbian Smart Phone is its 41 Mega Pixels Carl Zeiss (Its not a typo error, its actually FORTY ONE MEGA PIXELS) Camera Lens. The phone utilizes Pure View algorithms of Nokia to create crisp and sharp images from its enormous 41 Mega Pixel camera lens.

In layman’s wording the phone captures seven pixels and combines them using special algorithms to create ONE PURE PIXEL this imaging technique has been introduced by Nokia in its extraordinary smart phone. Thus creating a PURE VIEW. This technique not only reduces noise in the pictures but also delivers crisp and sharp quality of images.

The Nokia 808 has actually two imaging modes:

  • Pure View
  • Full Resolution
The Pure View mode captures the images in maximum available resolution and then applies PURE View algorithms on that full resolution image, afterwards the output can be either 2, 5 or 8 Megapixels. The images created this way are full of detail as the above mentioned process of 7 pixels to 1 pure pixel conversion has been applied over here. This method not only reduces the output file size but also delivers BEST crisp and sharp images.

On the other hand Full Resolution mode offers you to capture images in full resolution up-to maximum of 38 Mega Pixels. You can either view the low resolution images given below or download the FULL RESOLUTION image samples taken from Nokia 808 over here.
