Starling on the Phone by Photosbykev Starling on the Phone by Photosbykev
Taken with a Nokia N95 camera phone, full frame image in 'close-up' mode. A small piece of tissue paper over the flash led to soften the shadows slightly +1/2 stop compensation for the background.

This was taken whilst drinking a coffee in the car at a motorway service area. All my main camera kit was in the boot and I didn't want to disturb the birds around the car so I thought I would have a play with the camera phone.

Exif info left on this image for proof lol

At first, I really wondered. The resolution is decreased to 750×1000 so it makes sense that everything is clear and well-focused. Though the lens must be really clear and clean. And the bird doesn't look very confused. Anyway, this is a good shot :aww:

great shot - just goes to show that it isn't the equipment, it's the eye (and the knowledge of how to squeeze every drop out of the equipment;))

Starlings are pleasantly cheeky little birds and to capture that with a phone camera, no matter how good, is astounding. I, like everyone else here, am suitably impressed.

I hate birds that get that close! They always steal my food :( Great picture though for a camera phone!
