Nokia and Carl Zeiss have been partners for quite some time. The famous company producing optical lenses for cameras set up on both smartphone N8 and N9, which, although they failed to establish the market was applaud by professionals for their superior capabilities to capture images and video. N8 was even used to shoot commercials, short films and stop-motion animations.
Now two companies have extended their partnership for an indefinite period of time. Carl Zeiss will continue to do optics for future high-end smartphones of the Finnish company. In fact, one of the last such models – PureView 808, which will be released in stores this month, worked with lens Carl Zeiss.
That lens has extremely high resolution, and the phone itself, except it uses a large 1/1.2 “41 megapixel sensor. This sensor is larger than models that use almost all DSLR cameras High-end, although the amount of photos taken with the phone will only reach up to 5 megapixels. However, these images will look sharp, with realistic color rendition and less noise.
Although PureView 808 works with Symbian, the Nokia is committed to provide filming technology in future models with Windows Phone. In this way they will introduce Carl Zeiss optics on the market for high-end smartphones. In the best case, the ability of the cameras on these phones will be at the heart of their struggle in the competition.
