Experimenting with PureView

So I am still practicing with and learning to use my Nokia 808 PureView and decided to go to my local Air Port to see if I could get any decent shots of Aircraft using various settings on my phones camera, and also take a couple of videos to try that too ( one thing I learned is zoom and video doesn't work too well with me, basically due to shaky hands and not the camera, but the sound is pretty good!)

I seemed to get best results using either the 34 or 38 megapixel Creative settings, but also got some surprisingly good results, well to me at least, using 2 megapixel creative and full zoom, again the whole thing may look a damn sight better is I was a little more stable and knew what I was doing with settings etc, but if you don't practice, you don't learn, so all I can do is keep practicing I guess ?


Hope people find some of the shots interesting at least, even if they are somewhat limited in artistic merit and subject matter, I think they at least make a change from flowers and they are certainly not Bokeh or macro :-)

      Great shots, SQ! Would love to see some of those comparison shots of the bigger picture and then a zoom-in on some tiny part of it. Interesting subject too - makes a change from flowers and cats ;)
