Nokia E6 shows off its full focus camera (samples)
The recently announced Nokia E6 builds on the success of Nokia's business-centric E series, but it also brings a redesigned Symbian codenamed Anna and a pretty capable 8-megapixel shooter. The major downer – it's a fixed focus unit, or as Nokia calls it – full focus.
What full focus comes down to is simpler architecture with no moving components, which allows the company to both cut cost and make thinner phones. But while it allows all objects further than some 20 inches apart to stay in focus, any attempts for macro photography are doomed to turn out blurred as objects closer than the 20-inch threshold appear out of focus.
The photos below come from Nokia and even though they're taken with a prototype of the E6, they look great with nice saturated colors, all shot in rather good well-lit conditions. Whether you like fixed focus actually comes down to user preference: aspiring photographers who value speed the most in shots might prefer fixed focus as it eliminates the millisecond waiting time an auto-focus camera takes to actually focus. Take a look at the photos below and judge for yourself.
