Somersault over Kits Beach - Image593

Gotta love the 3x optical zoom of the N93! That's what made this photo possible! - Taken at 12:03 PM on May 05, 2007 - cameraphone upload by ShoZu

    Wow! First try? You must have anticipated this one ... shutter lag can make action tricky...
  • Roland Tanglao 8y

    not first try
    shutter lag sucks
    he just kept doing somersaults over and over so this was my 2nd try and about his 5th or 6th somerault

    So this was uploaded with ShoZu on your phone...and it looks like it uploaded the full resolution image. I noticed that ShoZu on my iPhone only seems to upload a 640x480 image...

    P.S. Great shot!
  • Roland Tanglao 7y

    thanks @haggaret

    yup shozu on nokia is way better than shozu on the iphone (but i am sure it will be improved) and shozu on nokia does full resolution upload (always has!)

    Howdy Roland!
