The other day I stopped by the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago just to have a peek around and see what’s what in the world of science and industry (must keep on top of these things); on the first floor of the museum was a very large Model city of downtown Chicago, complete from the sears towers, to the El train, to the little pedestrians in the street; all immaculately painted and crafted onto a huge exhibit. I took a couple pictures just to remember it when I noticed that the Lumia 900 took REALLY good macro photos compared to the Lumia 800 which frankly kinda sucked and couldn’t keep in focus on anything close than the moon. The Lumia 900 however took some excellent close up photos as well as some VERY impressive video capturing (especially since the lighting was less than optimal).
Super awesome tip: When taking macro images on a Lumia phone rather than press to focus (on the screen) hold your finger on the object you want to focus AND KEEP pressing on the object until the photo is captured (don’t tap and release- keep the screen pressed)- I didn’t know about that until recently and it made a world of a difference in the resulting images.
Here’s a video sample of some super closeups plus a tour of a miniature Chicago.
And some Macro Images (I know it’s no pureview; but there are some decent shots there):
