Nokia PureView wins TIPA’s Best Imaging Innovation award

Announced back in February at MWC 2012, Nokia’s PureView technology is being used only on the Nokia 808 PureView smartphone for the beginning. And although the handset hasn’t been released yet, the technology has already won an award: Best Imaging Innovation from TIPA (the Technical Image Press Association).

TIPA is praising the 808 PureView’s “comparatively huge sensor – both in terms of physical size (1/1.2 inch) and resolution (41 MP)”, as well as the “smart pixel oversampling techniques for lossless digital zooming and noise free photos and videos.”

Of course, we’ve already reported that the 808 PureView is probably the best cameraphone ever made, but an official award is certainly welcome for Nokia.

Nokia plans to release the PureView 808 next month (May). The PureView technology is expected to be included in future Windows Phone devices, too, possibly starting with a handset headed to Verizon Wireless in the US.

     ”TIPA is praising the 808 PureView’s “comparatively huge sensor – both in terms of physical size (1/1.2 inch) and resolution (41 MP)”,”

    What’s good about the 41 MP resolution if the lens doesn’t have enough resolving power?
    See http://luminous-landscape.com/tutorials/resolution.shtml and do your own calculations(808 sensor size is approximately 10.8 x 7.5 mm and max aperture is f/2.4).

    “smart pixel oversampling techniques for lossless digital zooming…”

    In one way it’s lossy, because the zoomed image won’t look nearly as good as the 5 MP oversampled one.

    Maybe Nokia can release a camera of the high-quality picture shooting, anyway, this phone just puzzles me with Nokia’s real intention.
