High Dynamic Range imaging, better known as HDR, is a great way to make your digital photos look awesome. HDR imaging uses multiple pictures with different exposure settings and combines them with Tone Mapping to make awesome pictures. Follow this How To to create your own HDR image with your Nseries phones.
The rumor for today is that the Nokia N96 will have Xenon flash similar to the Nokia N82. Xenon technology is a lot brighter than current LED flash which results in a lot better picture quality at night or indoors with poor lighting. Take a look at my previous Nokia N82 photo samples. I think this rumor sounds too good to be true, but I’m all for it.
In first of a few series, I’ll be giving a review of the Nokia N95 8GB concentrating on its look and feel. There are a few changes on this model compared to the other Nokia N95 variations, more importantly the bigger 2.8 inch flushed screen, bigger battery, and the shiny black color. In the end, I think it looks great and a lot better looking than the older Nokia N95 variations.
Are you constantly checking your North American Nokia N95 for firmware updates on Nokia Software Update? You are not the only one. I’ll provide you the product codes list for the Nokia N95-3, and perhaps one day one of those codes will show a shiny new firmware. You can check updates based on Nokia product codes and use my list.
The Nokia 6220 Classic recently passed FCC approval, but this phone completely flew right by me. I did not know this phone had 5 megapixels, xenon flash, GPS, and the latest S60 version. It’s got some improvements over the Nokia N96, N78, and N82 so I’m confused why it’s not part of the Nseries?
Currently, Sports Tracker users cannot have embeddable codes to show off their maps on blogs. During my vacation in Mexico, I used the Nokia N95 NAM with Nokia Sports Tracker to help me track where I travelled and help me locate where the pictures I took with. I already shared how to embed the location of geotagged photos but now I’ll tell you how to include the location path you took and perhaps create and share position art like Stavros.
Congratulations to Abul Hussain, also known as adonisdemon, who blogs at Symbian in Motion for winning the five Ovi stickers from last week’s giveaway. To make sure that I was not cheating on this contest, I decided to stream the video to Qik from the Nokia N95. It worked as expected.
Google released a search application for S60 last month and it has been very useful. I just press the pencil button on the Nokia N95 home screen, then a Google search form shows up ready for my query. Let me tell you how it helped me and my classmates remember the names of the seven dwarfs.
I have the Nokia CA-100 charger for review. This charger lets you charge your Nokia phone, device or accessory from the USB port on your laptop or computer. For a plain and simple review, it works the way it should. Now let me explain who or why you would buy this accessory.
