Sun 01.23.11 – If winter has you down, go visit the Huntington Library & Gardens in San Marino, Caliornia, as this second to the last weekend in January was it was bright, sunny, and quite warm at 82F (27.7C). The most glorious part of this time of year, particularly after all the rains in December plus the warm weather of the last two weeks, is how many of the camellias were already in full-bloom and quite a few of the Asian fruit trees in the Japanese and Chinese gardens were putting on a show in time for the upcoming new year.
Today was a lovely day to visit the gardens. All photos taken by Ms. Jen with her Nokia N8.
Mon. 04.12.10 – Once again, I will let you the gentle reader be the judge of this contest between the Nokia N82 and the Nokia N86 8MP. The contest for this set of photos was a very bright, mid-day sun while at the Huntington Library & Gardens in San Marino, California.
The question I wanted to raise in this set was how would each camera phone titan do in bright mid-day sun (very unforgiving) in terms of color, clarity, close-up and far away, as well as light handling with no flash. As with last week’s Part I of the Nokia N82 vs. the Nokia N86, I did my best to make sure both cameras had the exact same settings and distance from the subject, and I did not alter the photos in post-production in any way other than to reduce all of them to 640×480.
Which camera phone do you prefer?
