[tweetmeme source=”mrnitishkumar” only_single=”false”]

People who remember that how this blog started with Indian Idol 2 and how I was part of the team to deliver the number one fan blog on Indian Idol 4, really don’t wish that I may remain away from fever of Indian Idol. Thanks friend for bringing me in again.

Yes! I am late in joining the fun and honestly speaking, this time, I wont be able to follow up the series like I always did, but still thought to bring the Finalist, who have crossed the first storm.

 
You may call them lucky 17, but I know that it takes more than luck to be there, real talent. My best wishes with all of you. Keep rocking!!!!

The web got a new name www.nitishkumar.net

Have you noticed that https://nitishkumar.wordpress.com is now landing on http://nitishkumar.net? Yes!! I got the domain name registered under my name. No more a sub-domain on wordpress.com and no more the need to remembering the long name.

Yes! I  understand the consequences that Google Page Ranks etc will drop down on this step for the new address and I need to start-a-fresh to earn, what I got in last years, but still I don’t mind. The fact is, I started regular blogging only by September 2009 and since then in every month, I raised the traffic more than the last month. So, its kind of new and I could do better for sure.

It was a simple process of buying the domain, took only a few mins and I spent around Rs. 700/- only for an year. For more details, you may  go through the helpful post here by sparklestarr. Though I am still suspicious about the situation, if I wish to use a web hosting sometimes later on, so that I could get FTP Access or power to change the themes etc (CSS upgrades are costly and still will limit scripts etc), but as much  I read there, it’s an option that I could take after 60 days, of course, if I wish so.

Google‘s offering was cheaper I guess, but I thought to give WordPress.com as there were other small issues and complications. Definitely, nothing could have been simpler than this.

I am always suspicious about web purchases , where they ask your credit card number and CVV? Can’t be there some other way?

Nokia E72 Diary-Day 7-Camera Review

[tweetmeme source=”mrnitishkumar” only_single=”false”]

This time, I needed to start from apology that it’s not been a possible post by yesterday as I didn’t got much time to play with Nokia E72. Today my day is going with full jealousy all over my mind with people getting #NokiaNav shiny cars. But still I am back with one of the most important aspect of Nokia E72, which caught people’s attention more than anything, the 5.0 MP camera. Read more to know few things about it.


Do you think that its worth talking about a device on scale of its camera that is supposed to be a Business Device ? Perhaps that is the pain of Business people. Aren’t they human? Are their requirements completely in contrast with other common users? Why should they be deprived of a decent music player in their phones or FM receiver or a real good camera? OK!! first two might be personal requirements, but why not a decent camera? Trust me, most of Business users get disappointed that what Business phone they are going to get are without even “basic” features, they lived with till now.

Think of a day, you hear that Bill Gates decided to visit your office or some other star just arrives all of sudden in your office in next cabin. Believe me, no matter how much professional you are, you sure get excited and wish to capture a glimpse of them (with you may be 😉 ). Is it crime to keep a proper camera phone with you?

Leave that fancy thing, take a real one. You got a doc that you urgently needs to send on Fax for info or for some approval or any other formality and your IT guy tells you “Scanner already faulty since last two days and Fax Machine down since morning”. You say “What the f***? what I am supposed to do now? Isn’t there is a option to take a very clear snap of the doc and send it on mail? Sure only if you have some 5MP Nokia E72 with you.


Megapixels … does they matter a lot? My first proper admiration for mobile cameras started with Nokia N70. People will laugh about 2MP cameras now, but at that time, it was very fine with me and I didn’t even mind taking prints of snaps taken by Nokia N70 then, but what changed the game completely was well known Nokia N82. The almighty 5MP camera with Xenon Flash came in to completely surpass my Kodak Digital camera.

Definitely, since when I heard about Nokia E72, then I was excited about it that if its camera could do the same job as Nokia N82 did for me. Because then it was perfect to switch over that because of other amazing features it offers like due to strong battery and connectivity, I am peaking on about 4GB downloads daily, which was sure limited with Nokia N82 due to less powered battery. So, I took the Sunday, day 7 of trial as the day for camera comparison.


nokia n82-e72

First of all, I let you know that its not that fair to compare a Nokia N82 and a Nokia E72 as the earlier one is blessed with a Carl Zeiss camera (only name is enough), while the later has same megapixels but No Carl Zeiss. The other compromise for the business device is No Xenon Flash and not even dual led like Nokia N86, just Single Led Flash. But like I always said, its better to take your hands on first before calling it off. Moreover, com’on we are talking about Nokia N82 here for comparison, which doesn’t got a match in real till now from anywhere and only N8 seems to be challenging the legacy. But let’s discuss that how much Nokia E72 fairs with its camera…

CJ got a good lead over Nokia E72 Camera, for the details, you may look over there, I am here with my little observations only.

Nokia E72 doesn’t have dedicated Camera keys and you left with only the optical navi wheel taking for the same part. Moreover, might be the case that I am not getting used to that well, but somehow it seems that focusing is tougher than Nokia N82 here. Though as I get comparable pictures with similar quality, but I think its due to adjustment with sensitivity of Optical Navi Wheel. Somehow, it was better to have a dedicated Camera key somewhere.

Good thing is, Led Flash may be called lesser for Stills but become better for videos because the technology allows them to keep lit on while making the video (same explains how Nokia E72 works like a torch when we press space for a while). Definitely a good thing and I will sure come up with a video made in some dark soon.

The above is a simple comparison of camera interfaces on both the phones. The point to notice was inclusion of panorama mode in Nokia E72, though some may be disappointed by non-availability of geo-tagging, but I wonder that how many actually use that? Must be hard on battery I guess. Though the same feature wasn’t there in Nokia N82 as well and all I have heard of is an application from Nokia Beta Labs to bring this capability. There should be one for Nokia E72 as well, if someone really want to.

Well!! with time, things get advanced so with the camera interface as well.

You can customize the toolbar here, which was not there in Nokia N82 for sure.

Sure I didn’t took much of the pics today, but putting some of them here for comparison. All the time, Flash is on Auto for both the devices and I tried best to focus before shot. (Nokia E72 left and N82 right)

Honestly speaking, I am not able to figure out the difference, but experts might sure find. Though I still insist that Nokia N82 is more convenient tool to snap due to dedicated camera keys.


The other part on negative side of Nokia E72 is somehow with the resolution. Don’t know but Nokia N82 and Nokia E72 both technically has the same resolution screens, but even though Gallery makeover is great in Nokia E72, but I found somehow pictures doesn’t look that great on screen in Nokia E72 in comparison to Nokia N82. May be I should give some more time before coming to this conclusion or may be I am too much used to of my beloved N82.


In all, I must say that competing with the legend is hard, but except for two points, Nokia E72 not leaving on any place and even scoring on Video light side. Technical details on other side, but I don’t think that anyone is going to find any difference in two. After all, all we want is a best camera to be with us and still one device for all.

Guys!!! here you go. This is the business device you always wanted. I mean there might be many business phones out there, but tell me which one got it all like the way Nokia E72 got?
