Mumbai Darshan

A couple of weeks back got a call from Nokia representative asking me to try out their latest offering the N8 smartphone. The Nokia N8 introduces a 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and Xenon flash, HD-quality video recording, film editing software and Dolby surround sound. All in a beautiful, aluminium design. We decided to do a Mumbai darshan titled N8 Urban spree to test out this gadget. All images on this post have been taken with the Nokia N8. Started out from Cafe Mondegar behind the Taj Mahal Hotel and rode in the quintessential Premier Padmini ‘Kaali Peeli’ taxi.

At Mahalaxmi after capturing some Dhobi ghat pics we decided to travel by the lifeline of Mumbai – the local train.

Got off at Parel and walked through the full of life streets till the High Street Phoenix shopping

complex and then back on the road again till Cafe Coffee Day in Bandra. It is a great camera and gives good images even in low light. You can do most photo processing in the camera and upload it directly to your social networks. Great for street photography as it is not intimidating. I liked it. Have not been paid for this review.

  11. Looks great, Deepak. You know, I've never taken a picture with any of my cell phones. My boys gave me the Droid 2 for my October birthday. It is quite the gadget, with a superior camera, or so I'm told, but I have yet to try it out.

  14. Nice shot of CST. Others too. Not bad for a Nokia, but, I guess, the photographer makes a difference as well.
