The Nokia 808 Pureview made it to The Verge, and Vlad Savov appears to be pretty impressed with the first results from it's brilliant camera. Even more fun to read are the astonished reactions from several visitors, like "Why would Nokia bother to release this phone with such an outdated… HOLY CRAP! I guess I get it now."
Yesterday late in the evening a heavy thunderstorm pushed away the warmth out of this country. This is how one of the roses in our garden survived, shot with the Nokia 808 PureView, of course. A bit melancholic, it seems, cold, wet, but still alive. You can see the two close-ups I couldn't choose between - up to you which you like best. You'll find the original sizes in my Flower to the People set on Flickr. Admire in full size, you can almost smell them.
Sometimes you can just just capture a detail. Meaningful to you, but recognizable to many. An atmosphere caught in the right way with the best lighting. It might be a composition, or just a snapshot - if the result is good it doesn't really matter.
You have been asking me more than once about low-light performance of the Nokia 808 PureView, I know. And I have made some pictures (there are still a few I have to get online, I will, promiss). But what I have simply isn't enough for a comparison that will fit your needs - and you know I'm trying hard to get objective results for you to compare.
Wish I was there. Instead
nokianesia made me aware of some very nice pictures from Bali, shot with the Nokia 808 PureView by
radriansyah (link to Flickr). Most of the pictures are in 4:3 format, some in 6:19. The lighting of course is perfect when you can take your pictures in Bali... Am I jealous? What a question. Aren't you?
