Official Nokia 808 PureView Sample Images
By way of its official blog, Nokia has released three full-resolution, 38-megapixel sample photos taken with the new Nokia 808 PureView camera phone. All three Nokia 808 PureView samples were taken at low, non-standard ISO sensitivity settings (ISO 55 and ISO 58), with the lens wide open. Do they compare favourably with the official sample images from the 36-megapixel Nikon D800? Perhaps not (remember that those samples were captured with some of the best Nikkors out there, using a camera with a full FX sized sensor), but they surely do contain a lot of detail - try resizing them to 14-16 megapixels and you’ll probably agree that this smartphone is likely to give a lot of compact camera manufacturers a run for their money.

I'm reminded of EVE from Wall-E for some reason.

It will be interesting to see how the likes of Canon and Nikon respond to this with their forthcoming cameras.

Soon, all your fast expensive long lenses are going to become pretty redundant.
Imagine having in your pocket a camera/iPhone with a 50-100mp sensor and able to crop the middle bit giving you the equivalent of a 300mm f2.4 lens at 8 megapixels (suitable for A3 prints).
What, 5 years!

Puts all the compact camera makers to shame, makes me wonder if they're are all in collusion to make such dross. To think it would take a phone manufacturer to come up with a revolution. Kudos to Nokia, you might have killed the point and shoot market, serves them right for their lack of innovation, if not a long awaited wake up call!

The design reminds me of the ZN5

Nokia have managed to keep me away from Iphones by giving a better camera, looks like this one should be next on the phone shopping list.
