I am kinda speechless when I see things like this. On one side, people who were trying the N900 carelessly uploaded photos to flickr and twitpic. On the other side, there are people who can actually find out these photos even though the photo exifs does not state N900.

Apparently Mark from TheNokiaBlog has used this Flickr search trick to find unreleased photo samples of pre-release Nokia phones on the net. This time around, he tried to search for N900 but did not find anything. All he found was photos taken by devices labeled “007 001″.

This photo was located in the N900 folder and the photo exif says that it was taken using a device labeled “007 001″

@chansearrington posted this photo on Twitpic with a caption “test”. He also explained that it was shot with an N900 but wasn’t the final hardware or firmware.

More photos.

Note that these photos are taken using early pre-production firmware. The photo quality may improve in months to come.

Following from my recent post on N97 camera samples and thoughts, many have been asking for some sample photos taken under low light condition. I then slowly took some shots here and there using the N97 and below are some of them.

Have a look. Click to enlarge.

This is a photo I shot in a restaurant that has yellow lighting. Taken using auto mode with no additional settings.

Outside a shopping mall… was standing on the roadside. A little handshake.

I thought I got a nice shot of these 2 buildings but then realised it was blur. Weird.

OK here are 2 shots of a very dimly lit meeting room.

Without flash. I half pressed the shutter until it turned green before taking. Came out not focused.

With flash. Again not focused even though the focus points turned green before I shot this.

Conclusion? Low light photos are not up to expectation. Focusing mechanism might have difficulty judging the focal range in low light. Hope future firmware can fix this problem.

What say you?

Hi all, here are some of the things about the N97 camera that I came up with after using it for a few days.

Basically the camera interface is exactly the same as on the 5800XPM but of course, the N97 has a 5megapixels lens with Carl Zeiss optics, which is a BIG difference from the Xpressmusic touchscreen.

Once the camera lens cover is slided out, the camera will be activated and it takes about 4 seconds to bring up the live view image on the screen. I think it’s quite slow because it only took about 2 seconds on my 5800.

Camera quality is good, both on the 3.5inch screen and also on my PC monitor. Video camera interface is similar to the one on the 5800 as well, but this only has 3 quality options. VGA, High quality widescreen (16:9) or High quality (4:3).

Overall I think the camera is very similar as the N96. I will be comparing photos from both devices soon, but for now, here are some shots from my N97 and a video at the end of the post. Click on the images to enlarge.

PS: Photos below are all unedited. I only added the text on them.





Here’s a video recorded at highest quality widescreen.

What do you think of the camera output? Do leave your comments here.
