Nokia N86 8MP vs N82 Camera Comparison

Today at the Nokia N86 8MP launch event , i had the chance to take a pics with both the N86 and its sibling the N82.  It was not a photo studio so the conditions were not perfect for a comparison.  So the results might not be that accurate. I just could not resist comparing the two phones as the N86 was first seen as a N82 upgrade with a Xenon flash. But then it went the N85 way !

Here are shots taken with the n86 8mp and the N82 .. Looks like N86 is doing a good job with color reproduction.We are also digging deep into the specs to see whats new in the N86
