Maybe my OCD kicking in, but I found this fascinating.

Heh, interesting marketing. Now where's the video showing the rest of it's assembly? Seriously, I'd love to watch that! ;-)

Well there's always this to fall back on.

Oooh I'm telling his boss that he didn't put his white cloth glove back on at the 12 minute mark.

I just watch one of the other videos from that company. I can't believe all of that craftsmanship goes into a camera that is not a DSLR. Some say that the DSLRs are dying. I for one thought the same until I recently purchased my Nikon D3200.

The pictures that it produces via the Live View or Finder View can be totally different. Specially if being held. Simply because if in Live View, it still covers the sensor with the mirror before snapping the picture.

Along with the hi-fi I have, in years gone by, dabbled with various cameras and did, a few months ago, consider a Nikon D3200. However, I recently bought a Nokia 1020 (more for the touch, feel and reasonably sized and clear keyboard) but the pics I've been getting off it are pretty darn good, for a phone camera.

Here's something that no camera phone can do...



Note the focal point is very narrow. Thus the first part of the letter P in Pioneer is out of focus, as well as the "er". Same goes with the other pictures.

I was just playing around with the settings. I basically did the same thing a few years ago with a point and shoot. But this Nikon D3200 blows that Kodak camera out of the water...

Quite probably, but there's any number of things one can do with a reasonable photo editor.





Note the size of the above images - that's the standard resolution, there's also a high res 7712 x 4352 version. However, I'm not convinced that pixel count is the be all and end all.

The first three images, below (Mishka, Freya and Princess), were taken 12-13 years ago with an Olympus E-10 (a camera with a 4 megapixel sensor). The following pic of Mishky was taken a couple of days ago - the standard res original, a 1024 x 768 crop of that image and a 1024 x 768 crop of the high res image.

Given the choice I know which I prefer, but it's still not bad for a phone camera.













PS
Freya and Princess are also still going, but they're all very old now so I'm unlikely to get any action shots...
