808 pureview initial video review and imaging comparison with Canon 5D Mark 2 :)

What seems to be the first ever review of 808 pureview by some media channel, NDTV  a famous Indian media house has posted a video review of the 808 pureview and they seem to be most impressed with,

  • Polycarbonate body with a cover design. Funky Looks 🙂
  • Professional looking camera with 41 MP sensor
  • CBD display
  • Device color options available
  • Simplicity of Belle User Interface

They have also compared imaging capabilities of 808 pureview with DSLR Canon 5D Mark 2 in what seems to be “not so impressively done shootout”. It seems they have sometimes not used correct modes for photo capturing , sometimes even the compared pictures are different, sometimes the distance of image capture is also different. Need to wait for GSMarena or AllAboutSymbian kind of shootout to come, which covers all the aspects of comparison in a more professional manner.

But anyways, 808 pureview earns some good points also from the shootout, and the reviewer says,

  • This is best what you can get from a smartphone camera.
  • Pretty impressed with photo capture options which according to them is like any good digital camera.
  • No pixelation of any kind on enlarging the photos.

    What a silly comparision? How can anyone compare a great DSLR camera with a smartphone camera? Just looking at the price, 808 costs around 30K-40K while Canon 5D Mark II will cost above 1 lakh. 808 Pureview gives a lot of features apart from just camera but 5D Mark II is just a camera.

    I am agree that 808’s camera is superb, when smartphones are considered but it will never be able to beat to any of the existing digital camera, not even the compact ones that costs around 10K. Everyone use to say that Nokia N8’s camera is great but when I actually compared it, I felt that N8 don’t have the power to compete with Sony S3000 which costs less than 5K.

    NDTV is a full of garbage bin; why you are following their path?

    • @Mohit, It is more about how badly the comparison has been done. Well, it is not in a professional way.
      About N8 to compact cameras comparison. I myself have a sony and a samsung compact cameras and trust me N8 beats the shit out of them especially in details and low-light performance.
