42nd Street Photo’s take on Nokia’s 41MP camera phone

Nokia announced last month a new camera phone, Nokia 808 PureView, with a huge 41-megapixel sensor pushing the boundaries in mobile photography.

808 PureView can obviously take gigantic pictures, which can be printed in huge formats like banners, for example. It also features multiple options for image size, with standard resolution settings of 2/3, 5 and 8-megapixels.

The 41-megapixel sensor is not just for taking enormous stills, but to allow you to make great use of the 4x zoom without losing any definition. Wonder what video shooting capabilities the 808 PureView has? It renders 1080p videos and sports Nokia’s Rich Recording functionality which allows you to capture CD-quality audio. Other highlights are: Fullscreen 16:9 viewfinder with easy on-screen touch controls; Face detection software; Focus modes: Hyperfocal, Macro, Infinity and Auto; Shooting modes: Auto, Scenes, Creative.
