STILL IMAG­ING

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - CHOICE -

We were able to zoom in 100 per cent to fo­cus on a small por­tion of im­ages taken with the 808 with­out any dis­tor­tion. The PureView’s fo­cal length is equiv­a­lent to 35mm of full-frame cam­eras and at that range the phone’s re­sults were com­pa­ra­ble with our five-year-old Canon 5D’s. How­ever, im­ages shot by a new Nikon V1 and Nikon D80 seemed to put the 808’s in the shade. In day­light, Pureview de­feated some of the best point-and-shoots. The de­tails, sharp­ness and colours were im­pres­sive. How­ever, in low light, though the im­ages were sharp, the back­ground had a marked yel­low­ish tint.
