It's hot, red, and has wings. It even has Schumi in it. But it is not a Ferrari.

On Joyeye Lite - Lomo photography for Nokia Phones

Menu screen - Nokia Joyeye Lite - Share on Ovi

Joyeye Lite is my continuing journey to into the world of Lomo and/or fun photography.

It's free to download from Nokia's Ovi site, although on Joyeye's site it's USD 4.99. So far everything seems to work on my Nokia E61i, although I have some problems trying to publish the images to the social networks. It does not work with videos taken from the mobile.




Some sample pictures taken from my E61i with Joyeye Lite. These are just a few of the effects that is supported by Joyeye Lite.

The Joyeye Lite is a cool photo extension for any Nokia mobile. That said, I will stick with my Harinezumi 2 for my fun photography, but keeping Joyeye as a backup for taking fun phone camera photos.

Joyeye Lite 1.0.2 features:
1. Makes your photo camera a LOMO camera to capture LOMO photos,including action sampler;
2. Applys LOMO effects on the photos in your photo album, e.g., E2C, Retro, White/Black, Mirror, Scanline, frames, etc.;
3. Shares LOMO photos to the most of popular social networks and Joyeye, e.g., Pixelpipe, Flickr, Facebook,etc.;
4. Writes your micro-blog, and sync it to Twitter;
5. Supports sharing task queue;
6. Shows the newest photos and comments in Joyeye mobile community.

The Secret Life Of Chaos - Documentary

Surprisingly good.

Link



"Chaos theory has a bad name, conjuring up images of unpredictable weather, economic crashes and science gone wrong. But there is a fascinating and hidden side to Chaos, one that scientists are only now beginning to understand.

It turns out that chaos theory answers a question that mankind has asked for millennia - how did we get here?

In this documentary, Professor Jim Al-Khalili sets out to uncover one of the great mysteries of science - how does a universe that starts off as dust end up with intelligent life? How does order emerge from disorder?

It's a mindbending, counterintuitive and for many people a deeply troubling idea. But Professor Al-Khalili reveals the science behind much of beauty and structure in the natural world and discovers that far from it being magic or an act of God, it is in fact an intrinsic part of the laws of physics. Amazingly, it turns out that the mathematics of chaos can explain how and why the universe creates exquisite order and pattern.

The natural world is full of awe-inspiring examples of the way nature transforms simplicity into complexity. From trees to clouds to humans - after watching this film you'll never be able to look at the world in the same way again."

Harinezumi 2 - My New Toy


Got this in Tokyo. This is essentially a digital lomo camera. I resisted getting a lomo camera due to my laziness to develop analogue photos. This baby not only takes photos, but also video and even in black and white. At 15,750 yen (173 USD, 240 SGD), they are not cheap for a 3 megapixel camera or a 640x480 video camera (with sound).

The convenience of digital is enough to justify the cost. Besides, converting a normal photo to lomo just isn't the same.

That said, it is interesting how a photography movement stems from a camera defect.
