Ari Partinen, one of Nokia's PureView camera gurus, leaves for Apple

0. phoneArena 09 May 2014, 09:02 posted on

Meet Ari Partinen. He is one of the camera experts who are responsible for the Nokia N8, which came with a spectacular camera for its time period, the Nokia 808 PureView, which featured a stellar 41MP snapper on its back, and almost every PureView-equipped Nokia smartphone, such as the Lumia 920, 1020, 1520, and the Icon...

Everyone is looking for better opportunities, so good to switch the job... apple really need some one in camera department... but the problem with apple is they always use midrange specs in the phone to make huge profits...

"mid-range specs"? The A7 is the best ARM processor in a device you can buy, or will be able to buy, until the A7x/A8 starts shipping, the screen is a one of the highest rated by Display Mate, the camera is one of the best rated by DxO photography, and the chassis is more expensive to make than anything outside the Vertu line. I would hate to see what constitutes high-end specs, but be sure to let us know when that finally hits the shelves.

Galaxy S5 cost more to manufacture than iphone, this is for your kind information, expensive chassis boy... search an article about gs5's manufacturing cost on this very same sitewww.phonearena.com... iphone production cost is also mentioned there.... only the processor make it high end?? You forget about cheap small screen, 1gb ram for cost cutting... 8mp for cost cutting and many more, list goes on n on... only good part is that apple is able to use all midrange specs very efficiently

Yea....but all of those were the same things used in 2010...so none of that is "good". Plus, when you say one of the highest rated, it literally is the lowest among the high end of smartphones (but better than the mid/low level stuff). Also, Vertu SUUUCCKSS in all ways, including build quality. Comparing to them is literally saying you have no attention to detail and are severely influenced by marketing fluff.

The best I say and powerful is the Eyxnos 5422 at 22nm and Tegra5

On let say we take the A7 Soc and it tries to push Android high end device and see what happens

Even Baytrail by Intel is better

Forget about pipelines we are talking about raw power and torque which A15 needs lots of battery May like 4000mah

define midrange. The A7 despite having less cores and a lower clock speed still manages to keep up with snapdragon 800's in benchmarks. The camera is competitive with other flagships. It's screen is one of the best calibrated screens in the industry despite it's meagre size. People have to realise that some people (i.e most iOS and even android users) don't care about specs. The only complain I hear from non tech people are about Apple maps and it's screen size

You're right, Apple focused in quality not quantity(pixel count).

Why is it that Apple can't topple the 1020 in camera comparos if it's only an out quality?

30. Felix_Gatto (Posts: 911; Member since: 03 Jul 2013)


Because Nokia focused in both quality and quantity.

So it can be done, just that you choose to hail a company that chooses not to. With the amount of money Apple has and makes, I am pretty sure they could easily make it happen. Unfortunately there is no consumer push from the docile Apple crowd so why would they (although, Nokia pretty much did without being prodded for it).

Looks like Nokia is ran out of red, and he decided to jump another turf to spill the red

Not very happy but I believe Nokia(MS) still has enough photo experts.
There is just one thing about article, how is MS sinking ship ? I believe MS has enough money to run Mobile business for long time. I think he is leaving to quickly.

And, it starts.

I said some time ago, much of that Nokia talent won't be working for Microsoft for long, if at all.
