Over the last couple of days we have posted a few articles regarding the upcoming Nokia N8 smartphone, so far the handset is not looking too impressive, however a look at the handset’s specifications reveals that it does feature a very impressive camera.
There are two cameras on the N8, there is a front-facing camera which is there for video calls and a rear facing camera for high quality photo and video capture, this rear facing camera has a 12.0 megapixel sensor which uses Carl Zeiss optics, in this article we will look at this camera in detail.
If you take a look at the camera’s technical specification (here) you can see that the camera features a 2 x digital zoom and takes photos at a resolution of 4000 x 3000, also worth mentioning is its Auto Exposure, Auto Focus, Geotagging, Red-Eye Reduction, Self Timer and Xenon Flash.
The camera also offers HD video recording at 720p (1280 x 720), this captured video has a frame-rate of 25 frames per second. The supported video recording formats are H.263, H.264/AVC, MPEG-4 and whilst recording video you can make use of a 3 x digital zoom.
