Roundup: how-to's & background information

This might be a somewhat funny post if you are a regular visitor of the PureViewClub, but to new visitors - and new or wannabe owners of the Nokia 808 PureView or the expected Nokia Lumia 920 - I thought it would be practicle to write a post about some of the previous ones.

So here are my previous posts with a few very practical "how-to's" and a few offering background information on the Nokia 808, Nokia Lumia 920 and PureView technology in general.

I will update this post as well, for future use. First of all, of course, I have a welcome to new visitors, explaining how to "navigate" this blog - it's not like you need Nokia Maps for this, but it might be practicle.


- First one of the very best "how-to's" on the PureViewClub, since it was written on request (and not by me :-). Peter Meijs took a lot of time to explain  how to make HDR shots with the Nokia 808 PureView.

- You might also be interested in  how to master daytime long exposures. This is pointing you to Richard Dorman's post about the subject, and

- here's a post pointing you to AllAboutSymbian's Steve Litchfield explaning how to use Scene Modes in the Nokia 808 PureView.

- I made my own small contribution in explaining  how to make macro shots with the Nokia 808 PureViewand

- here's  a simple tip for better control: touch to focus.

- Also, I've shown how much fun it can be to  edit pictures on the Nokia 808 PureView

- It might become even more fun in the Nokia Lumia 920, as you can see in these short demonstrations of Cinemagraph on the Nokia Lumia 920.

- And when you notice Nokia City Lens doesn't work well - or at all - on you Nokia 808 PureView,  use LiveView

- Last but not least, here is a post I wrote about " how to join the PureViewClub"

Background information

- Of course I love the Nokia 808 Pureview - it never ceases to amaze me in fact - but here's why I believe the Nokia Lumia 920 will be worth the wait as well.

- Want proof? Engadget showed it in the first low-light shots and a very useful comparison. More proof? On the bottom of this post I will once again share their great demonstration of Optical Image Stabilisation.

- After the announcement on september 5, it was clear that Nokia is introducing a second kind of PureView with the Nokia Lumia 920.

- If you want an expert's view on the difference in PureView capacities between the Nokia 808 PureView and the Lumia 920, here's  what Damian Dinning wrote about it.

- Nokia is doing everything to make people want the new Lumias on Windows Phone 8, which is quite a big contrast with its marketing effort for the Nokia 808 PureView. That's why I asked:  Is Nokia trying to sell the Nokia 808  at all?

- The camphone itself was one of many innovations of Nokia. The first one came 10 years ago, and I celebrated that with a short article about Nokia being the Alpha and Omega of the camphone.

- You can see some of my own work with the Nokia 808 Pureview on  Flickr and on  YouTube (and in higher quality on  Vimeo)

That's all for now :-)

Like I wrote, I will update this post on a more or less regular basis, and as promised, here's the stunning video Engadget shared from the Nokia offices, demonstrating Optical Image Stabilisation on the Nokia Lumia 920.
