Nokia 808 PureView Seagulls!

| August 10, 2012 | 7 Replies

We’re highlighting some Seagulls taken by the Nokia 808 PureView after a heads up from Janne. These first few shots you might have seen a while back when Richard Dorman/Sheridan01 snapped them. Full gallery on flickr.

Janne shared a photo that was accidentally taken click of the water that also captured some Seagulls.

Just a couple of 100% crops from a single full resolution Nokia 808 PureView picture taken at the Helsinki harbor. The crops are not great in themselves, and the whole picture just a random click at water, but just show the unexpected detail you can make with this much resolution available after the fact. The original is attached to show that I wasn’t really photographing the birds at all. The crops are at 1:1 pixel resolution, no scaling and no PureView effect, with slight Photoshop adjustments in the crops (I originally prepared the crops to be used elsewhere). The original is not touched in any way.

The original of the above photo can be seen here.

Some crops

With PureView you can really find pictures in pictures. Here’s our own 808 Gallery from a couple of months back.

I think this might be a Seagull

Cheers Janne for the tip!
