Nokia 808 PureView vs Nokia N8 video sample comparisons emerge
The cameraphone to take the best pictures - Nokia 808 PureView - got announced two months and change ago at the MWC expo, and made it to the retail shelves last week

We've seen many promo shots and videos from it, mainly from Nokia itself, but now that it is available to purchase, we are expecting a bunch if improvised ones as well.

One of the most interesting things about the monster 41MP PureView camera module is how it compares with the previous imaging king in smartphones - the Nokia N8. Its 12MP sensor with Carl Zeiss lens and Xenon flash is nothing to sniff at, and now we have video samples that compare the new 808 PureView with the oldie but goldie Nokia N8. Color saturation and contrast are higher by default on the Nokia 808 PureView in the HD videos, while footage from the Nokia N8 looks better-lit, but it's the level of detail, clarity and framing space that ring in the main difference. 

Have a look for yourself in the video samples below, and marvel at the details and sharpness that Nokia 808 PureView can produce in low light conditions. Here's to this greatness arriving in a slimmer Windows Phone for Verizon.

808 wins. But n8 stays second compare to any smartphones today.

Nice comparison, but the cameraman seems to move the N8 faster than the 808, which causes its video to blur. :|

To think that no smartphone in the market today can rival N8's camera and now here comes 808. Other OEMs will have a hard time catching up with pureview. Nokia better put this to wp 8 and it'll be home run.

There's already plenty of reviews popping up - some of my favourites are:

* Nokia 808 PureView (8MP PureView mode)
* HTC One X
* iPhone 4S
* Samsung Galaxy S III
* Nokia N8 (downsampled from 12MP to 8MP)
* Olympus E-PL2 interchangable lens, large sensor camera (downsampled from 12MP to 8MP)

And then a 2nd shoot out:
* Nokia 808 PureView (38MP Full res)
* Canon EOS 5D Mark III
* Olympus E-PL2 interchangable lens, large sensor camera
* iPhone 4S

Pretty damn inpressive!

I remember wanting the N8 so badly (and I'd still love one), and it's still amazing (those low-light shots are impressive), but I'd spend the extra money for the 808 hands down

Automatic white balance is waaaaaaaaaay off in that first video and shifting is even more annoying
