    That's the sort of effect we need from phone cameras. Their extremely short focal length lenses make it almost impossible without trickery, and it's trickery such as Nokia's Depth Mapping that gets us closer to the effects obtainable in 35mm photography. You'd probably need to use a 50mm lens at full aperture or thereabouts to get the very pleasing shallow depth of field in that shot.

    Great shots. Any edits or mostly straight from the phone?

    Thanks! I changed the depth on a few and also did slight warming on a few, but that's it. I took RAW too so when I get time I'll be playing with that. There was nothing wrong with the depth on the one's I changed. I just happen to think it looks more like it came from a DSLR if it's more subtle.

    Here's a link to a short slo-mo video. I did some walking video that I'm not posting, but I think the problem with it is NOT that it doesn't have stabilization (which would definitely be welcome). Rather, that it doesn't have manual focus (unless I'm missing it). The video looks like it's hunting focus every time I take a step.
    This one is just a short pan.

    The lack of manual focus really sucks, I agree. I certainly couldn't figure it out if there is one. I'd like it for taking pictures as well, sometimes pointing at an object for focus is insufficient.

    Yep unfortunately you will need to use a third party app for manual focus in both photo and video modes. Hopefully they will update the software to include this later but it's one of those things that should've been there from day one.

    Yep only in third party apps will you get access to manual focus and I really doubt Nokia gave them access to the five cameras yet so you'll probably only be using one sensor. Or I could be wrong about that. Can you guys confirm?

    But I'm pretty sure that the third party apps don't use all five lenses so you're losing what makes the camera special.

    Yep I just added that in the comment above. I wonder if Nokia is going to open the hardware to third party apps. Did they really think this all the way through is the feeling I'm getting.

    Well I was planning on getting some more camera time today while I was downtown but I didn't get the chance. I was only able to take a few snaps in full auto mode as I was called to be somewhere and couldn't hang around. There was also a Flames game about to start so the area was a zoo. Anyway here's the few that I did get. No edits.

    Here's a shot of our new downtown library. This one I managed to get a shot with both the Nokia 9 and the Lumia 1020 while I was waiting for the crossing signal to give me a green.

    This is good stuff and I'm surprised by how outdated the Lumia 1020 looks next to the Nokia 9 shot. I'm impressed.

    Grabbed a couple of photos playing golf, but haven't played around with camera much the past couple of days.

    I actually have one and used it on Thursday when i took a lot of pics. My battery was at 78% when i started the hike and was fully charged by the time i got back to my car about two hours later in spite of taking all of the pics! It makes it easier to hold the camera steady, too.

    Wow I didn't know that. That's pretty cool. I'm definitely getting one for myself.

    You can use this coupon for 15% off - ADONIT15%

    Someone clown is selling them through Amazon for $60 (for the black) and it's $28 on the Adonit website. Slightly annoyed they are charging $12 for shipping, should be nowhere near that much, but I'll live with it.

    I ended up ordering directly from Adonit because they probably take a hefty cut in margin selling to Amazon. Starve the Monkeys and all that
