I have looked at the samples. This device is evidently a superb camera, they down resto produce excellent iq and the res allows surprisingly good digital zoom.
If it beats my superb nokia n8 i will be tempted

it actually looks like a very decent camera. Not sure I'd ever go for it, but innovations like these will surely mean the death of the basic 1/2.33" sensor point and shoot with 3 - 5x zoom...

it does have a real 41mp, but when it's totally zoomed out, it combines pixels to give images up to 8 mp, with pretty low noise.

As you zoom in (digitally), fewer sensor pixels are combined to give 1 image pixel, so you have more noise. Still, even at maximum digital zoom, each sensor pixel still represents 1 image pixel so there's no intrapolation necessary.

So, in short, you never get a 41mp image (8mp max IIRC), but the sensor does have 41mp.

You can go full res since sensor is like that of the lx5, variable format, the largest resolution is 38mp in 4:3 res
