Weekend Watch: Paradise Island, Koh Wai Thailand, by Nokia 808 PureView

| November 4, 2012 | 28 Replies


Here’s a nice change of scenery for some of us – a beautiful paradise island, Koh Wai, Thailand. It’s shot on the Nokia 808 PureView.

There are some nice tripod mounted shots there. Once steady (either on tripod/dolly/steadicam) the 808 PureView’s videos look absolutely incredible (and sound incredible too but often these videos have music to cover that up)




Juha has a photography blog over at

My first and only time in Thailand was luckily thanks to Nokia, testing out the Nokia N82’s camera prowess (as well as the sports tracker app that geotagged photos – something we take for granted now). It’s a beautiful location and a wonderful place and the 808 is a wonderful camera to capture all those stunning memories.

    Has anyone managed to do a sound comparison between the 808 and 920 yet?

    I recently went to a gig, which I recorded bits of with my 808. It sounded clearer on playback than the real thing did at the time with my own ears! The band then went and linked to my videos a couple of times, so that made me happy.

      920 is just as good when it comes to distortion .. 140 decibels, same mics. It doesn’t sound as good because its mono, but there are people saying that the 920 has two mics, and they are waiting for Microsoft to fix their software so that it can take advantage and record in stereo.

      There is a whole white paper on Rich Recording, its not as simple as it sounds.. if you want the full effect.

      here is a sample from the 920:

        Thanks! That’s definitely closer to Nokia Rich Recording quality than it is to, say, Samsung Screech Recording.

    tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just

  • )Do you seriously want to take your Visalus home business to
    a new level. This isn’t the only reason that we know Vi – Salus isn’t a scam; the product is
    real, and it’s backed by real research in nutrition too.
    What is fascinating is that their shakes actually
    works and delivers some wonderful results.

  • Step 3: When it comes to cleaning the limestone with liquids
    you need to be extra careful because its porous surface readily absorbs liquids and
    cause harm to the surface. This composite star is embedded into a black terrazzo square
    splotched with white. Due to the filler the
    surface of the floor looks smooth and due to the buffing of the floor the surface
    of the floor becomes shiny and hence more beautiful.

  • Hi this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you hasve to manually code
    with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no
    coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • I almost never create responses, however I read a bunch of responses
    on this page Weekend Watch: Paradise Island, Koh Wai Thailand,
    by Nokia 808 PureView : My Nokia Blog. I actually do have 2 questions for you
    if it’s allright. Could it be only me or do a few of these comments look as if they are
    coming from brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are writing on additional places, I would like to keep up
    with you. Could you list of the complete urls of your shared sites like your
    Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

    : My Nokia Blog is kinda vanilla. You should look at Yahoo’s
    front page and see how they write post headlines to grab
    viewers to open the links. You might try adding a video
    or a related picture or two to get people excited about everything’ve written.
    Just my opinion, it could bring your blog a little livelier.

    I was curious to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your head prior to writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting
    my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost
    just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or hints? Thanks!
