The other day I was doing some cleaning up in the office and came across some old backup drives. Whilst browsing through them I noticed some old digital photos. Turns out they were from 2003 and a Nokia 7650. So I thought I would share some of those photos from the 7650 and my subsequent Nokia Devices such as the 6600, 7610, N70, N93, N95, N95 8Gb, N97, N8, 808, 1020 etc.
The photos are not masterpieces, any skill I do have didn’t really develop until 2010 and the Nokia N8. This is more of a trip down memory lane, to share the photos and places my Nokia phones and I visited.
Nokia Connects recently did a post about how mobile photography has changed our lives, that got me thinking about my time with mobile phone cameras. You see, I have been using them right from the start. My first digital camera was my Nokia 7650. I still have a 7650, along with another 126 Nokia devices. So here are what I consider milestones in Nokia’s decade of imaging and their consolidation of the title of “Imaging Kings” amongst mobile manufacturers. Ok I know that is a matter of opinion, but as this is my blog and my opinion then I guess I am allowed to say that.
Now let your mind wander back through the mists of time. The year is 2002 and Nokia have announced the Nokia 7650!
For those of you that never got the chance to experience this fantastic little device, it sported a great little VGA camera with a whopping 640×480 (0.3Mp) resolution. A beautiful TFT screen with 4096 colours, a 104Mhz Arm 9 CPU, GPRS for fast data and bluetooth V1.1
After a few months of gruelling torture, it has finally arrived in Finland. This is the device I have been looking forward to for as long as I can remember, now bear in mind I am getting on, so we are talking months here, not years. Now you will see a load of review posts about this device over the next few weeks. Not from me, sorry but I freely admit I am terrible at reviews. Instead I will concentrate on the camera with respect to still images, close-ups, HDR etc. Before we start, a couple of pics of my device itself, I know not really part of the post but it is just so damn good looking you just have to.
