I bought myself a Nokia 701 (Dark Steel) the other day, for no other reason than, well I wanted to. People have been saying it’s EdoF (Fixed focus) lens is better than previous Nokia’s with the same lens, namely the C7, C6-01, X7, E7, E6. This of course could be down to the fact that the Nokia 701 is running the latest iteration of the Symbian OS, Belle. Of course it could be just an improved version, anyway I have been playing with the camera, not only using the in-built application but also using HDR Photo Camera. Unfortunately the Nokia Panorama application is not yet available for the Belle OS, hopefully that will be rectified soon.
Thanks to @NitishMurthy for giving me the idea for this post. So all it is, is a test to see if you can get better results for the Nokia E7 running Symbian Belle or with an application called Camera Pro. As we all know the Nokia E7 has an EDoF lens, fixed focus if you prefer, so close up shots are not it’s forte. But let’s see how the images turned out.
Hi, whilst driving my wife to work this morning I could not help but notice the sea was so calm, almost like a mill pond! As most of you will know I love taking landscape photo’s, especially with my Nokia N8. So I could not resist, I just had to go out around where I live and take some photo’s. I hope you like them.
Yesterday I got a call from the Helsinki flagship store telling me that my Play 360s had arrived! So here are a few thoughts and few pictures about the Nokia Play 360s.
I chose the black Play 360s for one reason only -they will match my black Nokia N9 when it arrives. Well, they look really good in black as well.
If you want the full specifications then click here. Personally I prefer to use something rather than read the specifications.
I have used Nokia portable speakers for quite a long time, I have the Nokia MD-3 and two Nokia MD-11s which I use on holiday. Both are fantastic portable speakers, but the Play 360′s are in a different league even though they are obviously not as portable due to size. But, as you will see, they are not exactly huge either.
So what do you get with the speakers? In the box there is a micro usb charger, a 3.5mm double ended jack cable and a cover/carrier for the speaker. See pictures below
The NokiaN8 Flickr group has grown quite large now with some 13455 images and 1441 users as of this moment. It took me a while, but I have gone through the group’s images and selected 77 photos to showcase in galleries on Flickr. If I missed your photo, please do not be offended. It are a lot of photos to go through!
Here are just a few of those images – I will link the galleries I have set up as well so if you wish to view all the photos, you can.
I have not put them in any specific order and you may notice that none of my personal photos are included. This post is purely about my favourites from other photographers.
I am constantly amazed by the quality of the images the Nokia N8 produces, after all it is a mobile phone, not a dedicated camera. Well enough of me rambling on. Let’s have a look at the amazing images. Yes, that is my opinion.
Obviously this is not all 77 images. So here are the links to the five galleries.
Many thanks to everyone who has a N8 and is contributing to the NokiaN8 Flickr group and a special thanks to James Burland for setting up the group and also starting the Nokia Creative Awards, now sponsored by Nokia. This means the best photos each month submitted to the NokiaN8 Flickr Group win a prize. So it is worth your while submitting your best images to the group, but there is stiff competition as can been seen from some of the images here.
Finally I would like to say a big THANK YOU to Damian Dinning and the team at Nokia for giving us such a stunning camera to work this. It has almost made me into a half decent photographer!!
