Video shows Nokia EOS will feature mechanical camera shutter
The main benefit of having a mechanical shutter is that it hugely reduces and simplifies the circuitry on a device. Having an electronic shutter (where the sensor basically starts gathering light for a set period of time) means added electronics at each pixel location.
The mechanical shutter on the other hand often allows for a simpler and more effective sensor with a higher fill rate where each pixel gathers more light.
All of this along with the rumored large sensor would make not just for a great all-around cameraphone, but for one that performs particularly well in low-light. Those are all guesses right now, though, so take a look at the video below to see the Nokia EOS camera in action.

Just received my free wireless charging plate in Yellow, so sexy when my Cyan Lumia 920 sits on top of it!!!

Sometimes i think there's two faces in you.

So here is a Sammy fanboy who was bashing Nokia all the time and now you want to buy this phone whahahahahaha.
Yesterday you said:
looks like it will be the S4 CPU, but not the S600.
still à dualcore.
No 2Gb Ram
No 400+ ppi
Would love to buy this, but huge let down by it's pathetic platform, Wp8®
This proves that you are a joke, and PA should ban you for life because of your bullsh*t comments!
I hope you will never get this awsome phone, that will make you a very very sad little boy!

Says the Hardcore Nokia fanboy! You would praise Nokia even if it had low specs on midrange, highend device with midrange specs!

14. Edmund (Posts: 599; Member since: 13 Jul 2012)
My N8 had a mechanical shutter. This is nothing new for Nokia
23. SIGPRO (Posts: 317; Member since: 03 Oct 2012)
True and i still use my N8 to make pictures, my old N8 makes better pictures than iphones and galaxy phones!
26. mihaidenis (Posts: 22; Member since: 09 Sep 2012)
and the sensor will be no more than 8.7 megapixels for sure.
a big disappointment.
greetings to elop for involving where it should stay apart.
the team that build 41mpx concept is no longer working for nokia.
Jolla sounds familiar?
28. SIGPRO (Posts: 317; Member since: 03 Oct 2012)
You should read and learn how the 41mp works, clearly you don't have a clue!

you talking nonsense,look at the size,the surface of cmos is no bigger than 2 mm diameter.so you must read before post sigpro

It also looks as if the sensor moves in and out after the shutter opens....optical zoom and focus?
