For those of you who are interested in the quality of the 12MP camera sensor included in the recently released Nokia N8 smartphone, you’ll be pleased to hear that the camera has been given a glowing review.
That review comes to us courtesy of Engadget, as although they have given the handset an overall score of 5/10, they have praised the quality of the camera on the N8, stating that it is currently the best camera on a smartphone by far.
You may think that this was expected since the N8 is only one of a few 12MP smartphones on the market, but it’s rather refreshing to hear that the camera does actually perform, and Engadget has provided media samples to back up their claims.
Unlike the iPhone 4, Engadget state that the N8 produces ‘extremely detailed and natural shots’, and that the LED-assisted autofocus on the handset was the ‘fastest they’ve ever seen’. They also reveal that the camcorder quality is better than that seen on the Droid X, but is choppy in places compared to the likes of the iPhone 4 which records at 30fps – the N8 only at 25fps.
Engadget close off their camera review by suggesting the the N8 is a ‘photographers dream’. If you are a consumer who is buying the N8 solely due to the 12MP camera sensor, it looks like you are going to be very happy indeed.
