The 5 Pureview 9 cameras promise quality and flexibility

camerasIn the last six months, we've seen a lot of phones with three cameras and some with four cameras. Now, the Nokia the world's first phone with five cameras on the back - Nokia 9 Pureview.

However, instead of offering a range of options for taking pictures, this phone focuses on delivering superior image quality. So there is no optical zoom or wide angle lenses. And that may be good.

What's included is the five-camera system: two 12 megapixel RGB color sensors, three 12 megapixel monochrome sensors, a Time-of-Flight sensor to measure object distance from the lens and a dual-tone LED flash.

Nokia has collaborated with Light - the company that manufactured the famous 16 lens camera, which first appeared in 2015 - which will provide a special chipset, called Lux ​​capacitor, to make the five cameras work in parallel. The Finnish brand had to choose this chip because PureView's main processor - Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 - can support only two cameras running simultaneously.

To capture high-quality images, the device uses a technique called image stacking, which combines detail from multiple frames to produce an image. Each Nokia 9 lens takes one to four frames, and the entire installation saves data from 60MB to 240MB per picture. After that, the software selects the best detail from each frame and combines them into a 12-megapixel photo.

You can also save the uncompressed photograph in RAW DNG format, approximately 30MB per image, and edit it later using applications such as Adobe Lightroom CC.

The company claims that the device provides 10 times more light than a simple 12 megapixel color sensor of a smartphone. He also said camera phones capture 1.200 layers in a portrait. This is impressive, as Google's Pixel 3 captures only two layers and produces great results.

Portrait photos are also compatible with GDepth depth map format, so you can customize the depth of field with the Google Photos app at any time, even months after shooting a photo.

Original impressions from Nokia 9 indicate that the phone is ideal for downloading details and the depth detection capability is very powerful.

Adam Ismail from Tom's Guide believes that while the five Nokia 9 cameras look alike, each one brings something different.

In Digital Trends, Julian Chokkattu believes the Nokia 9 depth map - which is used to get detailed portraits with a dull background - is the coolest feature of the device. However, the lack of Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) can be negative for people who may not have so steady hands.

It is clear that Nokia wants to offer high-quality images. We will see if it will withstand competition once it comes to the market.
