Nokia + WP7 + Carl Zeiss = Awesome Photos
25th May 2011
As most people now know, Nokia will be dumping the failed Symbian OS for Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 (WP7) at the end of 2011. This will be in time for the latest upgrade of WP7 to what has been designated “Mango” by Microsoft, although the live version will be called WP7 (version 7.1).
The Nokia N8 has a 12Mb Camera with a Carl Zeiss lens and the photos are spectacular as anyone who knows about photography knows its the lens not the number of megapixels that make the difference. One would assume the new Nokia WP7 phones will have around the same configuration (12MP).
Is it getting closer when you can dump that point and shoot camera and just have and use your smartphone?
Over the past several months I have been taking photos with a Samsung Galaxy S (has the Android OS) and the daylight photos are really good, although anything in low light is just crap. Some of these photos can be seen on the SpeedingDragon Daily Photo Blog (click here). Below the first photo is one from the Samsung Galaxy S and the second photo from a Nokia N8.
