					Nokia 808 PureView in focus: Interview with D. Dinning

The Nokia 808 PureView certainly made a splash at this year's Mobile World Congress,
pinning the company back on the cameraphone map in an extremely advantageous
position.

If you've been living in a cave these past few days, you might have missed some of the
juicy details about the Nokia 808 and what makes it so special. So we'll make a quick
recap.

The Nokia 808 PureView has a 4-inch AMOLED display with the rather lowly resolution
of 360 x 640 pixels. Spiritually succeeding the Nokia N8, it runs Nokia Belle (previously
known as Symbian) and it's centered around a 1.3 GHz processor. While this smartphone
might technically revolve around that processor, what's got the publics imagination is
actually the never-before-seen 41MP multi-aspect camera sensor.

Capable of shooting full-resolution shots of up to 38 megapixels and utilizing the
industry's first pixel oversampling technology for delivering vastly superior lower-
resolution photos (5MP and 8MP), the Nokia 808 camera is a “quantum leap forward in
cameraphone performance,” as Nokia themselves put it. Another industry's first is the
lossless digital zooming in less-than-maximum resolution shots and video.

The garnishes on this excellent dish are the Carl Zeiss lens, the xenon flash, a relatively
large F2.4 aperture, the mechanical shutter coupled with a neutral density filter, and
there's also, of course, FullHD video recording.
Damian Dinning

We had Damian Dinning, Head of Imaging Experience - Nokia Smart Devices, to tell us
more about his team's baby and how it came to be.

Damian has played a key role in the development of iconic devices such as the Nokia
N95, Nokia N82, Nokia N86 8MP, and N8, among others, and he's also head of the team
that delivered the Nokia 808.

We did delve into the inner workings of the Nokia 808 PureView 41MP camera sensor
yesterday, however we are more than eager to hear the story behind the product from the
man himself.

We rarely do interviews but the Nokia 808 is a real whopper. The sheer hype it generated
yesterday almost took our site down for a moment. The camera enthusiast inside of us
can't get enough of it either and Damian Dinning is the man to see to learn everything
about this exciting new smartphone (and about cameraphones in general).
