Nokia closes Scalado deal, teases new camera technology
Ealier, in June, Nokia announced it will acquire imaging gurus from Scalado and now it has closed the deal and teased some of the upcoming technology. First, though, we should note that Scalado still has a deal with RIM and this deal remains good, so we’ll see that incredible best image technology arrive in BlackBerry 10.

As to Nokia, the company is keeping what’s coming in the imaging department a secret. Nokia’s vice president of software management, Samuli Hanninen, though, did say that “imaging is about to go through another major revolution.”

The pictures we take on Nokia Lumia devices will allegedly come with much more background information. “One example is the way phones can enrich photos with contextual data. It can know the who, what, where and when behind every picture and use that intelligently,” Hanninen explained.

Now, what’s really interesting is that the upcoming technology will enable changing the composition, so that different parts of the image are in focus, much like that Lytro camera magic we’ve already heard about.

”We’re talking about ‘recapturing’ moments. Your photos can contain so much information that you can go back and make new pictures that are completely different, in non-destructive ways – maybe focused on the sunset that was behind your girlfriend’s shoulder in the original,” Hanninen said. Now that’s exciting, isn’t it?

Ooh, this AND PureView AND Carl Zeiss optics? Giggity! Nokia is definitely the undisputed leader in cell phone camera technology and quality.

actually the clearblack technology is also something very innovative because the iphones and galaxies have great displays but those phones lack anti glare display

IPhone 5 is making a big splash. Come on! Get rumors and keep the interest going or the iPhone will overshadow everything! As Victor H. Suggests, keep moving!

Put a manual mode one of their new phones and I could shoot some commercial photography with it. These devices are getting good!
