Video: Shiny, shiny green beetles and pink dragonflies with Nokia 808 PureView

With some additional glass over the 808 (held  by rubber bands) you can get some really detailed super macro shots that look like they came straight out of a TV documentary.

Check out how shiny this bug is.

Although it is possible to close up relatively near with Nokia 808, I could not resist the temptation to try even closer with my trusty Vivitar Ser-VII close up lens in front of 808 along with Maped magnifying class at some shots.

The little guy – or big guy, depends on your perspective – is a beetle of species Rose Chafer (Cetonia Aurata).

The video below is of course by Topolino70.



This next picture however was shared by Nokia India’s facebook page. It has been heavily compressed by facebook but it still looks great nonetheless.

The photo is by Afaq Saiyed and it reminds me of the N8 dragonfly ad :).
