Nokia shares some insight about its next generation of imaging capabilities

Nokia shares some insight about its next generation of imaging capabilities
Nokia Growth Partners shared some thoughts about what the thinking is to enhance Nokia’s already top-shelf imaging capabilities. NGP holds investments in a number of technologies with some well known entities that make up part of the imaging portfolio.

Among those companies are Pelican, InVisage, Heptagon, Morpho and Luminate. Heptagon is about to pack up and ship its billionth optical system. With this kind of talent at your disposal, the discussions are taking shape in some interesting ways.

NGP fielded some questions over the past weeks and put together some compelling answers. In short, we have a lot to look forward too. If a smartphone’s camera quality is important to you, you will want to pay attention:

That puts together some broad ideas, but it does not take a lot of imagination to see how these feature sets could be a benefit in future offerings. Now we just need to be sure that Microsoft or Nokia, whomever ends up owning this technology, are able to successfully implement these ideas before the rest of the crowd starts to take notice.

Nokia is one of the most innovative in camera's out there... but is lacking because of its os Dreaming of it on Android...

I don't think WP is bad at all, of course, i haven't used WP personally just yet so I'd be speaking a bit early, but my friend swears by WP. I'd personally love to give it a try if it ever comes to Sprint (and I mean Nokia Lumias when I say WP (: )

been there pal. u should try one....I'm android developer. I kinda hesitate to buy a wp device. now I'm a proud owner of the lumia 920 and 1020. I feel like owning a Ferrari or Lamborghini for a smartphone. maybe u should get the lumia 1520 for the first time and I'm getting one too.

I have used WP8 and although getting there (slowly) it still falls behind Android and IOS in quite a few areas. That said, at least the OS doesn't randomly change wallpapers or blue screen like Apple's OS does.

after gdr3 its not that far behind, but before the gdr3 I would say switching to windows os will take some getting use to.....but after reading the list that comes with gdr3 it will not be a hard transition unless you miss certain apps, which I will not, only app i will miss on google is play music app

I disagree, My lumia 920 is faster than almost all android flashgips and also faster than iPhone5 and lowers. But instade of that my Lumia 920 is not perfect

Your dumb comments have no place on any future WP related articles.. Grow up, and just visit articles that you have vested interests in.. Stick with Android❕

Just because you don't like it, or it doesn't fit you doesn't mean that its lacking anything.. This article is about a WP device, so what the F### does Android have to do with anything❔.. We love WP, and we don't really care to have a discussion about old news Android every damn time❕... Nokia, Lumia devices are WP devices.. Why can't you petty Android fans get that through your closed minded little sculls❔... Leave Android talk for articles about Android crap, and quit obnoxiously crashing WP related articles with your useless opinions...

I suggest Nokia start working on making digital cameras and DSLRs. I can assure them that they will earn more money than now.

Who cares❔ We buy WP devices because of what WP has to offer,, not what Android has to offer.. This article is about a WP devices, and you obviously don't like WP, so why would you even click on it❔
