Szumi: I'd like both cameras to be the same focal length. I really liked those view master slides when I was a kid.

Thats exactly what I am hoping for. Dual cameras at eyes distance would be amazing for vr/3d photography/videography. The focal length ideally should be very wide like 150-180 degrees and the photos would look amazing on a vr headset.
I ve actually done the same thing with two cheap gopro clones but they are not in perfect sync.
Sadly I think the cameras on s8 will be much closer and be used for stupid software tricks like fake DOF.

FantasticMrFox: And once the S8 comes out my S2 and I will be six generations behind :D

S3 user here. Besides the VR capabilities which are still very basic and the better camera there is nothing trully useful in the newer generations. There' no need to play their game and upgrade your phone every year.

Henrikw: I love the IS, but 22mp is completely unnecessary. Image quality is what counts and most smart phones still have a long way. Can't see how packing 22mp inside an even smaller sensor is going to improve the quality - particularly low light/high iso which is where every single smart phone utterly fails.

I was planning to hold on to my iphone 5 until there is a big leap forward in image quality (I take loads of photos with my phone).
Seems I will be waiting for a long time

Sure there are better phone camera options right now thant iphone5.
What about galaxy s6 with RAW hack.

On photo ISO12800 in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (3 comments in total)

OK now who would shoot this at ISO 12800?
A real life example would be to shoot wide open at a normal eg. 1/30 sec shutter speed at an ISO no more than 3200.

oohaah: Why would they not include the "real" pureview sensor? Seems like a huge mistake in my opinion.

Because that would make the phone fatter! And in our time most people want very thin phones!

Lets wait and see some image samples! It may be as good as they claim it to be!... certainly better than what the competition currently has to offer!

Amazing photograph! You really captured some true emotion there.

Damian D: Thanks everyone for some excellent comments and feedback.

I just wanted to clarify that the images we [Nokia] have captured thus far and any that you find on the net, were taken using prototype hardware with software which is not yet finalised. This is especially relevant with regards to low light which has not been optimised at all...yet. We are working actively on that area right now. It's extremely interesting to read the opinions relating to noise filtering and detail retention. Thank you.

best regards

Damian Dinning - Lead Program Manager, Imaging Experience - Nokia

Its also really interesting to see that those responsible for the best cameraphones out there are actually reading into photography forums for feedback and actually listening to what people say!
808 is a photographers dream!!!

Happy to see that you got rid of the white spots problem (probably due to sensor overloading) that was so annoying in the N8.

I hope MS grants you complete freedom this time with the camera software because current lumias like the 800 have terrible results in the postprocessing (too muck NR and sharpening going on) compared to the N9.
...really looking forward to see this technology together with a large sensor in the upcoming Lumia phones.

Barretlight: MORE SAMPLES here http://www.flickr.com/photos/nokiaofficial/sets/72157629100338650/with/6790012312/

seriously now... instead of buying a premium pocket cam like lx5 or s100 maybe I am thinking of buying this as my main phone

The only bad thing is that they Fkd up the screen resolution. 640x360 in 4" is low resolution for todays standars in smartphones. They could have kept the screensize smaller to keep the display sharper and the phone more compact.

For God's sake its 2012 give it at least a WVGA resolution. Symbian has the same resolution since ages!!!

Yes but still older applications ccould run at the larger Res screen and take less screen space (or upscale to fit in full screen). IT has been done before and can happen again.

If they dont plan on abandoning symbina soon they should up the resolution it supports. There are no longer excuses. A modern phone needs a modern OS.
