PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Rob Dickinson, former band leader of "The Catherine Wheel" (and cousin of Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson), has shot the video clip of his new single, "Oceans" (iTunes), using a Nokia N93 cellphone. The Symbian-based smartphone has a 3.2MP camera that is capable of capturing VGA video at 30fps with its Carl Zeiss optics. You can view the video at Yahoo!'s Music site (with IE) or via VLC. When the N93 was first launched Nokia tried to market the phone as the first DVD-quality capture phone in the market, but this is the first time that such a device is used for serious, professional purposes.

Funny this should come up.....I just finished compiling a DVD made of 31 minutes of footage from an aviation course I've completed, almost all of which is shot using a Canon SD200 Powershot (3.2 Mpx) digital capturing 640 x 480 at 30fps. The result isn't really all that bad.....about the only thing I noticed is the camera tends to not deal overly well with reflected sunlight and has some colour balance issues. The only other thing I've noticed is no amount of software filtering can substitute for the lack of use of a tri-pod, the lack of image stabilization being native to the camera, nor is it possible to hide the shaky-ness of my hands.
