Windows 10 Mobile still can't compete

I wrote part of this in a reaction on someone on the fantastic #NBAN Facebook page (" Nothing but a Nokia") who thought that Windows Phone would be “the best phone experience”. And the longer I thought about that, the less I could agree with it. I’m looking forward to your view on all this. A rare post without any shots - and if you don’t like rants, you should stop reading now.

The Fujifilm X70 - APS-C sensor, compact, connected

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.

Some random thoughts and insights about (not just smartphone) photography

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.

The hunt is over - the red Nokia 808 PureView

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.
