Just a short update to share a video of two lovely kittens - or maybe I should have called them young cats already - I met this weekend during a family visit. About two minutes that are just too adorable to keep for myself. The video is made with (no surprise here) the Nokia 808 PureView. The cats were in the shade of a sunny afternoon, lighting might not be purrfect, but (thanks to rich recording) the sound is :-)
Here's something you don't see every day - huge squids shot with the Nokia 808 PureView in a Melbourne aquarium. Look at the stunning colour transformations!
At the end of a very busy day I can't leave you alone without posting at least one update with four shots that are not my own. Two of them passed in my timeline today, two of them were sent to me earlier - and I need to apologize to the senders, since I promised to publish them days ago.
I'll first show the ones sent to me. From the same guy that showed us Batman's House at Golden Hour, Richard Spepherd, I received this nice colorful butterfly - there's one more to come in this post by the way.
Richard added: "I took this at Yorkshire Sculpture Park yesterday. I went to see (and photograph) some great art & Sculptures by Miro, but by far the best art yesterday was God’s design for this butterfly."
And I got a mail from Sebastien Tranquart, who shot this charming still life at Mahon Plage in France. They both have greay backgrounds I now notice, that is a coincidence.
Sometimes words fail to describe my amazement about the work Topolino70 shares on YouTube - see all my posts about him here. He added one video today with an extreme close-up of a Rose Chafer beetle.
I don't know how he does it, I can only hope he is willing to react on this post, because, well, I'm stunned and I'm quite sure you will be to after you've seen this: a Rose Chafer succeeding in getting on his feet. Choose for the 1080p resolution if your connection is fast enough!
After my thoughts on Elop, it's time to focus on PureView again - like you should with a Nokia 808 PureView: focus. I didn't have the chance to blog a whole lot this weekend, because all blog and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
In this post you will find a few nice shots from the last days. Nothing too pretentious, just sharing the fun and amazement of using the Nokia 808 PureView. First of all: a fly on a flower. Not that I like flies, but I love to be able to make pictures like these :-)
And here he is again, cropped from the original 8MP size...
15 more pics after the break!
