Here is third part of Nokia’s official 808 PureView Tips series and this is about “Low light performance of 808 PureView”. We all know 808 PureView is highly capable device in low-light with its huge sensor and Xenon flash. But in this tip it has been shown how to play with different settings of ISO and exposure time for capturing amazing low-light pics even when keeping flash off. Read more from the video description.
In Creative mode, you can select the ISO setting to be anything from 50 to 1600. The higher the ISO setting, the brighter the picture is under low-light conditions. It is also possible to set the ISO on automatic.
The best possible low-light performance is achieved when the camera is in PureView mode at 2/3, 5 or 8 megapixels. To allow exposure times of up to 2.7 seconds and to take “noise free” pictures in low light conditions, you can manually set the ISO low (e.g. 50). For the best results, it is recommended to use a tripod or similar support, or to select Auto ISO or Night mode.
