Man behind PureView, Damian Dinning, leaves Nokia

Damian Dining has been with Nokia for 8 years and now he has decided to leave on November 30.

Following the release of the Lumia 920 and the PureView 808, it was very surprising that he would leave Nokia. Dinning was responsible for bringing us such breathtaking innovations such as the 41 megapixel shooter and the 8.7 megapixel camera on the Lumia 920.

But don’t think just yet that he will be transferring to another mobile company. He states that at such a young age, he had been interested in two major thing, photography and cars; now, he decides to enter the field of automobiles, specifically, Jaguar Land Rover.

As he and Nokia would call it, the PureView 808 was phase 1, and the Lumia 920 was phase 2; both specialized at doing entirely different things. What would happen to phase 3 and so forth?

Well, the PureView team isn’t gone and it’s just a man less. After all, Nokia has a very strong foundation on R&D. Maybe sooner or later, PureView phase 3 might showcase a high resolution camera with oversampling, loseless zoom, image stabilization and low-light capabilities combined.
