Nokia exec hints at 16-lens array camera and dual SIM for future Lumias
0. phoneArena 27 May 2013, 03:02 posted on
Jo Harlow talks about "computational photography", capturing much more detail than the eye can see upon taking the shot, and then playing around with it, like changing the focus post-shot. The Pelican Imaging tech allows this, and Nokia's Jo Harlow mentioned that so far the biggest obstacle has been processing power, which with today's smartphone CPUs is no longer an issue. Will we see some of this in the upcoming Nokia EOS phone with a new camera app remains to be seen, but it seems poised to arrive at some point in future, more powerful Lumias...

My 920 is still too young to be replaced by buying the Eos this year end. Maybe I should wait for this.

Nokia has this good thing she always support old phones no matter what I mean it's not a wonder that you might get an update for the 920 which make rival the EOS

You will surely get some software update for your L920. I hope they will atleast make it enough strong to compete with 2013 flagships. For me, iPhone 5S would be the real challenger (to L920 and L928 only) because after Nokia, iPhone has the best camera.

I welcome any new camera tech. Can't picture how the 16-lens one would work, excited to see some demos.

Why do people buy a phone to use it as a camera? If you want a decent camera you can get one thats 10x better than a phone at half the price. I don't want to here your "all in one device" BS, phone cameras will always be garbage compared to real ones.

I don't agree, and me thinks you know very little about photography...
Capturing the "moment" requires having something on hand that can take pictures, and it doesn't always mean using a DSLR.

nah you are totaly not correct, using seprate camera isnt a good option who will carry a camera and a phone all the time except if its your profession or job ofcourse, and to get a good camera you need more then half the budget of flagship phones so total cost is like 1000$ for phone and camera meh seriously and you still hope it take good pictures i say its waste of waste of money for casual photos why spend extra cash.

it's called technological advancement!
why do you buy a smartphone when you can use your computer to send emails,play games edit docs etc????? u have no point! use your damn head to think,otherwise don't write stupid comments

Would you rather buy a DSLR camera, an mp3 player, a portable game console and a basic phone and carry it all in your bag, or just buy a top-notch phone that can do everything, the above mentioned devices does, which can be carried in the comfort of your pant pocket?
Of course, the choice is yours with only one logical answer.

I do. The photos of 2 of my blogs are from a phone. Im one of those who try to proof that you can do wonders with a phone's camera if you use it right, and you have the knowledge. Your ignorance is making you sound like you dont welcome new technology in smartphones.
I know people who buy DSLRs just to look cool and only shoot in autos. Pathetic.

Nokia might have 2012 spec phones, but when it comes to imaging, it makes the others look like stone age tools.

it seems in the future nokia is going to be selling smart camera's not smart phones
