A heck of a lot factors in to what makes up a good camera, from the lens, to the sensor size, sensor type, and digital post-processing. We try not to over-simplify things and look only at raw megapixel count, but there’s no denying that the figure has a substantial effect on how we view cameras. We’re thinking about these issues today because of some news to come out of Nokia, suggesting that follow-up PureView phones won’t have the 808’s same massive 41-megapixel image sensor.

Even before we knew that the 808 would eventually see U.S. sales, we knew that PureView technology would be making to the States in one way or another as Nokia continued to use the tech on upcoming handsets (likely including Windows Phone models). Now the company’s Vesa Jutila, Head of Product Marketing, is talking about just how that might happen. Nokia is considering lots of options for how to next deploy PureView, and that could mean some big changes like a drastic slimming-down of the 808’s bulky camera component.

While we imagine a thinner PureView would be met with great applause (assuming Nokia is able to do so without making too many compromises), the other possibility Jutila discussed is going to be a lot less popular, with the possibility for scaling-back the megapixel count from what we’ve seen with the 808. He didn’t mention any specific figures, but something in the 10-20-megapixel range might be a possibility. The important thing to remember is not to get too caught-up with such a reduction, and evaluate the new PureView system as a whole; we’ve got a feeling that Nokia has quite a bit of wiggle-room in which to make adjustments without compromising on quality.
