Video shows Nokia EOS will feature mechanical camera shutter
The Nokia EOS better get officially unveiled soon as leaks of the upcoming camera superphone are flooding the web and in the latest one we get to finally see the 41-megapixel camera of the phone in action. In a video taken up close you can see that the camera on the Nokia EOS fire multiple shots and it is obvious that it comes with a mechanical shutter rather than the electronic shutter most other smartphones have.

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.

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 1080P
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!

Wrong.... ANDROID™®© FTW® not Samsung fanboy.....

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?

You should read and learn how the 41mp works, clearly you don't have a clue!

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