Evening Clouds

Some more testing out the Nokia Lumia 800's time-lapse capabilities. 5 sec intervals for a bit over an hour.

Islay Tasting @Punavuoren Ahven

This actually happened already last Thursday; Part two of our Islay tasting series, of which I missed the first half due to a business trip. The idea was to go around the island of Islay, to get an overview of all the distilleries' core product, with one dram from the mainland to serve as a reference (hence the Speyside Glenfarclas). Menu was:

-Glenfarclas 10yo
-Bunnahabhain 12yo (new 46,3% version)
-Bruichladdich Laddie Ten
-Caol Ila 12yo
-Kilchoman 5yo 2006

In the end it was a close-fought contest between Kilchoman and Bruichladdich, with the former being my choice of the night. Great stuff, despite being half the age or less compared to the others. Can't wait to see what they deliver once they get 10-12 yo's out!

Tuning Lumia 800 Case

While the exterior design of the Nokia Lumia 800 is a joy to behold, it is kind of hard to get it to stay put when shooting time-lapses. Time to dig out the old X-Acto knives and put one of the ski-straps I got from Asahikawa's premium outdoor shop to good use. Would never have put that rubber phone sleeve into daily use anyway.

First Spring Day

This is where the time-lapse ended up. Was trying out a new Manfrotto Modosteady as well. It's a bit tricky, and not a pro-grade steadycam rig by any means, but with practice it definitely shoots smoother motion clips than you could do free-hand.

Time-Lapsing in the Sun

Result from the improvised monopod. Not totally stable. Probably because of the wind, as the tree itself was pretty sturdy.

Been trying out a Nokia Lumia 800 for work here for a while, and it's got this nice Time-Lapse Cam application. However, the thing isn't really made for fitting on a tripod. Thus a bit of improvised stability was needed on today's outing in Nuuksio.
