Nokia N86 is an Awesome Camera Phone, or the Beetle Making Out with My Carpet

Scarab Beetle making out with my carpet, photo taken with a Nokia N86 8MP

Wed 07.14.10 – This morning, as I woke up, I noticed a scarab beetle making out with my carpet, right on the edge of the area that I steam cleaned yesterday. The beetle was about 2cm (nearly 1 inch long) and when it had its head in the carpet, its butt was in the air. Very silly little creature.
Me being me, meant that I had to get up, walk past the beetle without disturbing it, grab my Nokia N86 8MP camera phone to take a photo or two. I put the camera settings on “Close Up” and zoomed in a bit to take two photos of which the one above was the one with the most clarity – click on the photo to see the original large size for details.
Oh what clarity the N86 captured! The hairs on the head of a 2cm beetle.
Of course the beetle got camera shy and lowered its butt by the time I got the camera to it, but the Nokia out performed my wishes. Not even my borrowed Nikon D70s could have taken the above photo.
Bravo!

    Great photo, and just goes to prove the quality of the lens, and sensor in the N86. I gave my wife my white N86, and she loves the camera on it.
    Btw Jen, had issues trying to log in to comment. Facebook, twitter, and wordpress all failed, however, google finally worked.
