A cinematographer´s review of the Nokia 808

I'm not extremely fond of videoreviews: a lot of the times they are simply too long, and all too often they seem to feature the reviewer more than the device... I'll make an exception for the eloquent  Phones Show by Steve Litchfield, of course.

And here is another fine exception, a videoreview by Raj Desai, a cinematographer from Mumbai. You'll find his exentsive review of the Nokia 808 PureView on YouTube, and from there I quote:

When Mumbai-based cinematographer Raj Desai heard about the 41 MP sensor on Nokia's flagship phone, the 808 PureView, he reckoned it was probably hype. But he did due research, online and hands-on, and finally bought the phone as an alternate for a compact camera. After having used it for a few months, he finds its image quality comparable to his entry-level DSLR, Canon 550 D. He calls this a 'camera he uses to make calls, rather than a phone that shoots pictures.' And he desires nothing more from it.

It's not too long, it's an honest story with some very nice examples. Enjoy!
