This short page shows some sample photos and video I've taken with a Nokia N95 mobile phone. Click on the images to see a larger version, or select the original to the right of each image to view it full size.

This page is about the N95 "Classic", not the N95 8Gb model, although I assume the two devices should be the same in terms of the camera. Some people report some improvements in speed of taking pictures and picture quality with the N95 8Gb, but I've found these improvements when upgrading my N95 Classic to the latest version of Nokia's firmware. As of August 2008, this is version 21.0.016. (Updated again October 2008 to version 30.0.015)

These images are taken at maximum 5 megapixel size (unless otherwise stated), standard quality, only scaled down where specified. I've used GIMP to reduce the image size, and to remove the registration plate of my car. :-)

If you were wondering what the pictures come out like, hopefully you'll be impressed enough to buy your own Nokia N95. It's a superb phone with a great camera. The video recorder is also stunningly good quality for a mobile phone.

Nokia N95 Sample Video

Here's a sample video taken with the Nokia N95. It's not the best example, as it doesn't show much colour or sound, but it's the best I can do for the moment! I have converted this video to MPEG4 of roughly the same file size as the original MP4 file so it's more likely to play on your computer, and looks exactly the same as the original. This file is 7.2Mb.
