Nokia PureView 808 takes on Lumia 925 and 928 in a couple more video comparisons

Nokia PureView 808 takes on Lumia 925 and 928 in a couple more video comparisons
We will make no bones about it, the optics on the Nokia Lumia flagships are superb. However, we have also been reminded how the Nokia PureView 808 camera occupies a special place in the smartphone realm.

Nokia’s newest entries in its upper end line of Lumia devices, the 925 and 928 each have PureView technology streaming within their camera veins. Just last week, we got to see a comparison of how the two captured video.

The two Lumias have optical image stabilization, the PureView 808 has a monster 41MP sensor with lossless zoom. SuperHDView took the PureView 808 and Lumia 925 for a spin down the bike path to see how videos were captured. Then, with the Lumia 928 in tow, a stroll through the woods with some zoom samples against the PureView 808.

Obviously, the devices are able to play to their respective strengths.  The video on the bike path did not show as drastic a difference as the zoom video. What is really cool is that soon we will see what happens when Nokia combines this technology. It will be quite interesting to see how the Nokia EOS fares with all the goods in one package.

Man, seriously, who would be riding bike filming with their phone ? Nevertheless, it seems on other reviews that the 808 has a high compression ratio on the HD videos, but as it's on Symbian witch is open, there must be a very simple patch or rom to set quality to maximum.

are u alright today?? HOwcome i c u praising nokia??? Better rub my btw 808 was just a prototye sort of phone. And its nt thick and ugly, until unless u have a craving for aneoroxic plastic phones. Its my personal experience and frankly it seems moreover an entry level slr first and smartphone later. And if u add a meugen power battery u can go for more juice for approx the whole week, in a single charge. Btw cant wait for EOS NOKIA i will be among the first user to lay my hands on it.

Wow, the difference between camera quality is very slim, of course the 808 is better but the 925 isn't too far behind.
