joe6pack: What I am most interested to know is how he managed to follow the entire family with a broken umbrella all the way home. They are interesting photos but if I am the person being photographed I would tell the photographer to f**k off.
exactly, those subtle differences in our look, personality, body language, shooting style etc. make a huge difference... from my observations far not everyone has a potential to become a great photographer, even if one wants a lot... the same like not everyone will ever be able to lift 1000 pounds from the ground no matter how hard he trains..
Bashar Yassin: I suggest that Nokia starts making cameras ... with Carl Zeiss optics ..i'm sure they can produce great cameras .
To me, phone cameras like Nokia N8, iPhone 4s... now N808.. are already real cameras... those dedicated compact cameras to me is just a thing of the past... no I don't want to carry my phone, and in addition to that camera... it's such a relieve with these new smart-phones.. Nokia, please make smart phones with better and better cameras:)
I have Nokia N8 and it has completely replaced my dedicated camera.. it has very well thought functions and settings, and once I got used to work with it and found correct settings for my style of photography, it is even quicker to take photographs than Canon S95... and my favorite focal length is 28mm anyway, i neither like nor need zooms... While with this Nokia 808 the boundary between phone camera and high end compact camera doesn't exist anymore, at least for me, and for many photojournalists I am sure...
I thought the other day, what a convenient concept are these smart-phones... it seems like all my life is in the Nokia N8 - photographs, video, messages, emails, important notes, phone numbers, calls, clock, radio... in one little device that stays in my pocket... Thought about maybe getting pana GX1 with 14mm for really serious projects but now I think, it would not really do anything different for me than my Nokia N8... waiting for Nokia 808 to play with:)...
