'Going vintage with the Nokia Asha 300 (2011), how do its images measure up against the current crop of high-tech mobiles'

Continuing where I left off with the On A Bright Sunny Day post, which was with images recorded way back with the Nokia Asha 300. The phone, out of the storage bin, powers up nice and steady with its camera working just as fine.

Using the camera on the phone is a delight, straight and simple. Being a pure point-and-shoot, all you have to do is to frame the image and press the shutter, there was nothing to set or adjust.

And for the acid test, it was just out on the front porch, on a most beautiful and lovely evening.

While the sun was already down, the ambiance of its red golden glow still lights up the sky, and coupled with the effect of domestic lighting and the street lights which was already turned on, the moments were truly a photographers delight.

The images, sharp and clear and with the cool contrast rendering, were quite beyond the expectation, and I was not disappointed.

Basic post-processing was done on Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3) with non-destructive cursory edits in Auto Tone Correction, Tone Curve, Brightness & Contrast edit, and Unsharp Mask. Final print sharpening was on Google NIK Sharpener Pro 3.
