Serene Serenades

'Five frames with the Nokia Asha 300, serene serenades on an early morning walk in the park'

I have to admit that using the camera on the Nokia Asha 300, a vintage candy-bar feature phone, is both equally as difficult and exasperating to use as well as it is as rewarding. When using the camera, exasperation comes in the form of a 2.4-inch resistive-touchscreen that is a complete washout in any form of bright external light, and images that take ages to record.

Out in the bright light, there is nothing that you can do or see with the screen that is almost blank. The only way to grab a few shots is to do it with the camera held at arm's length and shoot away. A bit of a hipster style, but with the camera held at eye level or slightly higher, guesstimate framing can yield you a few good images.

The Nokia Asha 300, introduced in late 2011, the first phone to have Angry Birds pre-installed, is one of the slimmest feature phones around, measures 112.8 x 49.5 x 12.7 mm, weighs 85 grams including battery. The phone has 140MB of internal storage which can store up to a maximum of 112 JPEG images. The camera does not come with a flash.
