Unfortunately the marriage between ZEISS and Nokia is over. Or at least at least, now that the optical manufacturer wants the open-source relationship that it allows, for example, to reach the world as it did on the new Sony Xperia 1 II with a three-speed dual-camera camera module.
It was a relationship we took for granted, almost like sugar and coffee, though it's all over and Nokia's specialty lenses for Carl Zeiss have made it by surprise, without killing the senses as we were told by Andrea's phone and the official announcement the arrival of ZEISS on other phones as in the case of Sony, the first manufacturer to select its famous brand so that a and in this case it is so different that cellphone photography.
Technology that is seen all over the world, stored so far in the smartphone industry in the best Nokia locations, and we are now down in the mobile market
If you think that the exclusive collaboration between ZEISS and Nokia is going to be permanent, you should know that it is all over and ZEISS has also decided to partner with other manufacturers: the first is Sony.
Collaboration with ZEISS goes away in addition to the simple use of its opics in graphical modules, and that as HMD Global announced in its day, the company behind Nokia devices, German company experts they also measured software and sensors Nokia's best phones.
Sony's important role will now be exploited, surprisingly the most respected maker of photographic sensors and the one who made the worst use in its Exmor RS modules, probably due to its calibration and image performance.
In this way Tony announced its partnership with ZEISS for the Xperia family:
Sony's new phone, the Xperia 1 II, will feature ZEISS Optics with T * (T-Star) coating anti-reflectors to improve image quality and give consumers a much better photo experience. The Xperia 1 II will be the world's first smartphone with AF / AE tracking speeds of up to 20 frames per second.
And this is ZEISS opening up the market … What does it mean?
Well, the first thing to emphasize is that the German tech giant helped Sony a lot with its identity, but officially Xperia 1 II is not the first non-Nokia phone to launch ZEISS Optics in his photo module. In fact, it even includes the lenses of the Tony G family.
Confirmed by the Japanese manufacturer itself, that has made it clear ZEISS calibrated the sensors and installed their wrap Star to avoid speculation, though it may be released in future for the German optics.
But Nokia, from HMD Global confirm that will continue to improve "A unique experience at ZEISS" without revealing too much detail, a statement that can actually mean anything but that should convince Nokia fans, because they will not lose a divider which means having cameras signed by ZEISS.
And when we talk about Germans, that makes sense to see Leica, Hasselblad and other great photographers Enter the smartphone market you want to expand your horizons and business models, which they also want open to other major manufacturers
However it may be, for us, the users, it's great news to be widely available, and world-famous ZEISS cameras. So, why not see the iPhone or Galaxy S signed by ZEISS? What would you like most?
