Camera Samples: Nokia N900 16:9/3.5MP shots on a cloudy day.

| November 28, 2009 | Reply

The N900 has a 5mp camera – 4:3 ratio at 2576×1936. It also takes widescreen 16:9 images at 2576×1488 (3.5MP). Below are some photos I took a couple of days ago on the way to one of my lectures. It was a pretty gloomy/cloudy/rainy day with some brief spots of sunshine.

16:9, 3.5MP

16:9 and 4:3 Comparison

Same photo, 4:3

Just for reference, in this occasion, the automatic white balance looked off on the N97, much cooler than the actual scene which looked more accurate with the N900.

I did have comparison sample with the N97 but I seem to have left that in my room at Cardiff to post it here (I hope so! Otherwise I’m gonna have to phone the insurance people). I can’t go get it as I’m 30 minutes away from London. [I knew I’d leave something important behind].

This means I’m going to be completely reliant on the N900 for music/photo/navigation which is going to be such a strain on the battery. My Proporta Charger is an absolute fail and isn’t charging anything (Apparently their warranty does not cover electrical products).

I do have a spare BP-4L but the N900 takes BL-5J which are completely different sizes.
