PureView Phase 2, or how Nokia managed to surprise us with an 8MP camera module

0. phoneArena 05 Sep 2012, 12:19 posted on

The 8.7MP PureView one has been built from the ground up with the thought to resolve the issue that plagues smartphone cameras the most, due to their smallish sensors - low-light performance. Nokia didn't achieve that by placing a huge sensor behind the Carl-Zeiss lens, like on the 808 PureView, that will capture more light, but rather went the other way around...

I think Daniel did a great job explaining everything so you'd better read the whole post, but in a few words the PureView Phase II focuses around a "floating lens" and pulse LED. Floating lens is a spring-based mechanism that corrects the lens' position so that videos appear drastically less shaky. Pulse LED fires a shot burst of lights to freeze an object - imagine using a DSLR if you have, should be something like that.

8x longer speeds, nikon's lenses some time ago could go for 8x now they have much better VR2 with 6EV (2 times better than nokias), look at pentax
moving cmos by electromagnet is the smallest solution and best compromise price, power...

rumors say that when the actual finished product of lumia 920 video sample is released, its captured video is better that what you've seen above with "OIS on" which is said to be captured with DSLR or something... how is that? just watch out...

The guy was on the right side of the girl.
No where in the video are pictures shown from that angle!

Must be a curious media guy trying to catch the action.

Yep, you could even recognize that "nature inspired" design in the launch video, in the jig with the L920 next to it. Man, those images made the S3 look like a child's toy.

Nice! Can really see the difference in video quality with the OIS on/off. But the photographs, wonder how sharp they are in details! Anyway, Good Job on PureView Phase 2, wondering what Phase 3 will be. The best of Phase 1 and 2 combined together? :P

The videos with OID on are very less shaky and choppy as compared to when it is off. Look at the video again and you will notice.
