Nokia 808 PureView

Editing Nokia 808 PureView .JPG in Lightroom

Here's a very short post about something I hardly ever did before: edit a high-res photo from the Nokia 808 PureView (38MP) in Lightroom. When I was still making comparisons between different smartphone cameras, I didn't want to use Lightroom to really show the original output of the devices. Now that I just about stopped doing so (until a very interesting smartphone comes along), it's actually fun to work on the results I've been collecting for the past years. Here's just one example. 

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.

Post no. 1250: time-out

A moment in time for me, post no. 1250. This all started as the PureViewClub in May 2012 so I've been at this for over three years now. It's been more than a hobby, more than a passion even: it has become an addiction. So I think it's high time for a time out. 

Clash of six smartcam titans: Nokia N8, 808 PureView and Lumia 1520, Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1, Samsung Galaxy S6, LG G4

In this comparison you'll see two scenes captured by six high-end smartphone cameras over the years - from the good old Nokia N8, 808 PureView and Lumia 1520 up to the recent Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 and brand new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and LG G4. Place your bets now.
