Nokia N9 Camera explained

Damian Dinning (Nokia Imaging expert) has posted some interesting insight into the camera technology inside the N9 on Nokia Conversations. I don’t think I can really add much more than what he wrote already so here’s a summary from his article:

  • Industry-first imaging sensor which is FULLY optimised for BOTH 16:9 AND 4:3 images  <- It’s a 13:9 ratio sensor.
  • Industry-leading Carl Zeiss optics
  • Super wide-angle optics – the widest in the industry. Up to as much as 60% more viewing area than other broadly comparable devices
  • f/2.2 aperture – largest ever in a mobile device
  • Extremely responsive, especially switching from stills to video and vice-versa and shot to shot
  • Touch AF for both video and stills
  • Full time continuous AF in BOTH video and stills plus face detection
  • HD video with stereo audio (still one of very few devices that provide high quality audio recording in video)
  • Seamless workflows optimised for speed or editing & sharing
  • Zoom in to images directly in the post capture view, edit and share all without leaving the camera – the most seamless mobile imaging experience
  • Non-destructive editing of images – go back to the original image at any time. Undo or redo edits even months later
  • New high power dual LED flash – 20% more powerful than our previous most powerful LED flash despite its compact size
  • Geo tagging with place names rather than just co-ordinates
  • AMBR – Automatic Motion Blur Reduction
  • Not forgetting the touch to share of images between handsets using NFC technology

I highly recommend reading the full post to get an idea of what they had to go through in making the N9’s camera:
