Courtesy of Nokia’s “blogger relations program” I have received Nokia’s new N82 camera phone with a resolution of five megapixels, a Xenon flash and video recording capabilities of 30 frames per second. I received it Friday afternoon so I haven’t taken a huge number of photos, but I have established a photo album for the handset that includes about 30 photos.
I began taking mundane photos during the day, such as from above a creek with a couple of birds in Chevy Chase, Md. about a 20–minute walk from my house (see below).
But taking photos in relatively good conditions isn’t too much of a challenge. So I ate dinner while I waited until it was dark outside. I then took photos of some shops that are a five-minute walk from that creek, such as a photo of the outside of Tiffany’s (see below).
I took several photos of Tiffany’s windows. Shooting through glass doesn’t always produce the best images (see below). I might have shot the “red” window with a high contrast, but I’m afraid I don’t remember.
I also took several photos outside of an expensive women’s clothing store, Saks Jandel (see below).
For the photos of Tiffany’s windows and Saks Jandel, I used the “landscape” mode that is also designed for shooting through glass.
I’ll be taking many more photos during the weeks to come as well as testing the video recording capabilities. I expect to take lots of photos and some videos during the CTIA’s Wireless 2008 conference in Las Vegas at the beginning of April.
