Using a Nokia N86 for Photography
By Dougie Digital Dawg
Three years ago I wanted to get a mobile phone which would take decent photos.
By chance I read David Bailey had done an exhibiton called Alive at Night using a Nokia N86.
Nokia N86 announced February 2009, has a Zeiss Tessar 28mm F2.4-F4.8 8MP with Auto Focus. It also has a close up capability which I find useful. There’s no touch screen which I prefer for photogrpahy.
Whereas for various scenarios a much larger sensor, far higher dynamic range, and high iso capability is significantly useful, I have found a small sensor useful in so many scenarios. Small sensor compacts may sometimes get knocked down, especially the megazooms with 1/2.3″ sensor and slow lens such as Sony X50V 24-720mm however they do represent excellent photo taking capabilities.
It really does depend on the way we photograph and our subject.
