How does the Lumia 950 XL compare with my red version of the King of Smartphone Cameras, the Nokia 808 PureView, a several years old device I recently rediscovered? I'll let you in on how happy I am working with both - or maybe not always as happy...
The Sony RX1 already had a fantastic reputation as full-frame compact camera, so I was extremely happy to be able to work with the Sony RX1R II for a while. In this post you will read about my experiences with the device, which I guess is just about as good as it gets.
After my experience with the Fujifilm X70 at the Louwman Museum, I couldn't wait to work with it on a more or less daily basis. I recently had the privilege of using the X70 for about a two week period, which gave me a pretty decent idea whether I'd want one for myself or not. In this post you'll read how I feel about it now.
In this post you won't see any smartphone comparison. Due to unfortunate circumstances I had to stay away from my laptop as much as possible and editing/cropping pictures is still not advisable. So that has given me more time to read and think about smartphone photography and photography in general. In this post I'll share some of my thoughrs and insights, illustrated with a few old and recent shots.
Samsung is focusing on the camera as one of the unique selling points of both its new flagships, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. And: Samsung is clearly attacking the iPhone 6S camera. In this post you'll read all about the radical changes in the camera specifications - and you'll find a few test shots I could make earlier.
Just a very short update to share I'm thrilled to say my hunt for the red Nokia 808 PureView is now over - I received it today. I wrote about it in July 2012 so it took me almost four years to find an original red version. It was offered on the largest second-hand market place here in The Netherlands and I bought it from a Nokia collector who later discovered he sold his red 808 to the founder of PureView Club.
During my visit to Louwman Museum in The Hague I captured a lot more amazing cars than you've seen in my previous post. After the Fujifilm event we were invited to have a look at the rest of the collection, and also since I brought my Lumia 950 XL and the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge + that was impossible to resist it. You'll find a selection of what I captured in this post.
This is a first in the history of the SmartCam Club as far as I can remember: in this post I will be sharing what I recently captured with the brand new Fujifilm X70 and the Fujifilm X-Pro2. I was able to use these devices during a Fujifilm event at the Louwman Museum in The Hague, where I was overwhelmed by an absolutely breath-taking collection of old and new cars.
