Mobile Photography, Learning Time Lapse





Nokia 3.1

Mobile Photography:

Learning Time Lapse

I got the time-lapse photography bug recently and decided to start learning the technique by doing a few on a trial basis. Nothing much in terms of hardware and equipment, just my age-old 2018 version Nokia 3.1, and a low-cost Universal Mobile Phone Holder Tripod Stand. For the apps, I used Framelapse which is available as a free download, and on my desktop, an installed version of OpenShot Video Editor.

Nokia 3.1

Nothing much to show off here as yet, just the first few initial frames shot mainly from the front of the house with the camera perched on top of the car, or on the gatepost. The main virtue of this early learning curve is the time it takes for each sequence to be shot. Mine was one hour and fifteen minutes, shooting a frame every five seconds for a 30-second time-lapse sequence. Final edits, if done straight on the phone do not take more than a few extra minutes and all is done and go after that.

'Five frames, enjoying the extended life of the candy-bar Nokia Asha 300 with images of close-up reflections'

Still having fun with my come-back-to-life candy-bar Nokia Asha 300, while trying out a newfound genre that mobile phones are good at, close-up photography. Mobile phones, as we know, have lenses with incredible minimum focus distances which are can be used effectively as a close-up camera, or when fitted with an auxiliary close-up attachment, a macro monster.

When you have the camera held at arm's length, however, or with the camera pushed far forward and angled away from your eyes, using the camera at its closest autofocus distance, even without supplementary lens add-ons, is a guessing game. The best you can do in this situation is to take multiple shots, or a burst mode sequence while moving the camera slightly forward or backward from your practiced distance.


Nokia Asha 300

The archaic Nokia Asha 300, like the one I was using here, does not have the close-up capability as later or more expensive camera models, but sufficient to say that it handles itself well as a learning or starter camera, which can be said of other lower ends mobile cameras as well. The subject of my curiosity here was was a water-filled upturned cover of a garden bin which has collected a bunch of fallen leaves, captured against the reflected backdrop of the sky and covering foliage.

'An early morning session, five frames with the MD-mount Seagull-610 50mm F1.8 manual focus prime'

My first thought was that this could be an interesting find, the lens caught my attention as I was browsing the big bay for other odds and ends to feed my interest in vintage and pre-digital manual focus prime lenses to add to my small selection of vintage lens preview and try a few shots with. The lens, it seems, is a very close cousin of the Rokkor MD 50mm F1.7, and it may even be a copy of it.

The lens itself, on arrival, was rather a disappointment. The all-plastic helicoid gear is all but stuck with gunk and turning it by force snaps and broke the focus ring trim. The focusing ring, now held together with a rubber band, gets to smoothen out after a few twists and turn but one end of the focus decides to stay stiff and very bothersome to focus with.

The mount to my adapter front was also a bit fiddly and I ended up moving the camera back and forth instead for subjects that were close to the shortest focusing end. Shot wide open, images are surprisingly soft and pleasant, with good bokeh, but falls rather short of being par excellence. These are about the best shots after the early morning session. Looks like that the lens may go into storage or be put up for sale sooner than I thought.

'Five frames with the Nokia Asha 300, on celebrating dawn with a camera that came back to life'

Wow, what a relief. For no apparent reason, aside from the fact that I plugged the charger incorrectly on a few previous occasions, my favorite candy-bar Nokia Asha 300 decide to come back to life. That was a joyous moment indeed, and as soon as the camera's battery was fully charged, took it out to the porch for these celebration shots.

The 2011 vintage candy bar, which came with only a 5mmp rear camera, has been one of my favorites for quite a while now. It has always been my constant companion any time I was outdoors since I dug it out of storage almost a couple of years back. The camera served me well, a constant with sharp and beautifully rendered images, never has it failed to deliver.

Nokia Asha 300

Am really looking forward now, here's hoping that the camera will give me a few more great shots, even only for a while before age takes its final toll again.
