Nokia camera wonders is not yet Mature

in 2016, the dual cameras, 2018, then the three specialist cameras. Now you need a diploma in the future research, in order to identify a Trend and to imagine that the manufacturer of this research principle, to move forward. And actually: The Nokia 9 Pureview on the back of not only a lens, but a kind of lens bloom: five Sensors, a LED flash and a ToF Sensor, which determines the distance of each image point to the lens.

This Arsenal of Sensors , the Smartphone used to increase the image quality and to achieve effects that would be with a conventional camera. Images of the individual cameras to be charged. It is even possible that each camera is triggered several times in order to more Material to procure for algorithmic mumbo-Jumbo.

Five Sensors for a photo-Hallelujah

In the App are created in low-light conditions, nevertheless, decently exposed images. The dynamics, i.e. the span between the lightest and darkest areas of the image, can be enlarge and the depth increase sharpness. It is also possible for the Depth of field change and set the focus point as desired. Finally, several images can be combined to increase the resolution artificially.

That sounds exciting and arouses expectations. However, at first glance, the Nokia makes 9 photos in decent, but not outstanding quality. What I like are the subtle nuances that are to be seen, for example, in the case of portraits on the skin, and the contrast-rich display. For my taste, the images are sharpened and exaggerated colorful. Sometimes the color scheme is simple: for example, if in the sky a cloud with a pink-red edge ausfranselt, it is in reality guaranteed.

black-and-white as before

if you don't like the switches on the camera App on black-and-white. This monochrome mode convinced. He expects just the colors, as is usually the case: Three of the five image sensors, the image in black-and-capture-and-white, the other two are for the color responsible. This explains the good contrast in the photos in color. And in the monochrome mode, it is a time to think back, where you have analog with a black-and-white film photographed.

The configuration with five cameras has some unexpected side effects. After recording, you can see a rough preview, on the basis of the Live image on the Display. After a longer processing time which can take ten or twenty seconds, the final result with optimized contrasts, colors and in higher resolution.

The final image differs, sometimes significantly, from the first preview. In the case of fast-moving objects, the Position of the Subject changes significantly. If you are Photographing even in movement, you possibly even a completely different photo than the one you actually made. If you zoom in very close, can shift the picture significantly, because the finished photo was supplied by a different Sensor than the Live preview on the Display.

The App is not the thing in half

The is grown naturally in the mind of the photographer. In such a case, a possibility of intervention would be useful: You would like to inspect the source material, and even selecting pictures to be used for the final image. But that is in the photos App is not possible and which is able to cope with the possibilities generally speaking. The processing of the Depth-of-field is solved in the case of the iPhone with dual camera much more elegant, and generally speaking, Apple's photo-App, more agile and response to acts of joyful.

conclusion: the owner of the Nokia brand, HMD Global, managed an interesting shot. However, it is clear that this camera array is still in its infancy. On the part of the Software, there is a huge potential for improvement: The processing must be faster and the App will give the users more influence. And probably even more from the raw material. For example, the performance in low light conditions (Low Light) is certainly capable of improvement.

use leaves traces

Apart from that, the Nokia 9 Pureview is a Smartphone that impresses with its bright and very sharp Display (6 inch with 1440 to 2880 pixels). The biometric protection features worked in our, of Digitec provided test equipment correctly; both across the fingerprint sensor in the Display as well as via face detection for a fast and mostly reliable identification is possible. The shiny back is nice, but the lightest touch already leaves unsightly fingerprints.

is one of the plus points of the device, HMD Global supplies with the phone Android One: This is an unmodified Version of Google's Android operating system Pie, which has no manufacturer-specific adjustments and Updates quickly and for a minimum of three years. Points of criticism the not quite cutting edge hardware with the Snapdragon 845 processor from Qualcomm, and the rather modest battery life. The phone is charging via USB-C, also wireless Charging is possible. Also remarkable: There are two SIM card Slots.

price: 669 Swiss francs. (Editorial Tamedia)
