Nokia OVI is awesome…

Nokia OVI is awesome.

Sorry just had to say that, after the wedding I needed a place to upload photo’s… Flickr’s free offering unfortunately has a limit and so does Picasa (Google’s offering) but while I was playing around on my Nokia N78 I found OVI. It doesn’t appear to have a limit and comes with features that allow you embed a little flash applet that has the photo’s in it.

You’ll see them on the Honeymoon page on our wedding website. One of the other cool features is that I can Sync my phone’s calendar, address book, notes and other items on my phone with the OVI website which is an awesome feature, it allows me to maintain the address book and calendar on any PC which is very nice and means that I have a backup of my contacts if I ever loose my phone.

You can also take photo’s and upload straight to the OVI website the same as with the Flickr integration.

If you have a recent Nokia phone I highly reccomend that you go and look at the OVI website.

Flickr Camera List

Next time I’m in the market for a camera I must remember the Flickr Camera Finder list.

Which is a list of the most popular camera’s used on Flickr. No real surprises on the list, I would’ve expected the iPhone to be the most popular Cameraphone, even though it takes bad pictures.

Canon at the top of the list of manufacturer’s doesn’t surprise me either as they make good, affordable camera’s and they appear to have a large percentage of the point and shoot users.

The Kodak camera’s that are listed there was a little bit of a surprise but I guess thats more because they’re perhaps not as popular in South Africa as in other parts of the world.

Uploading Pictures to

My new phone (Nokia N78) has the ability to upload pictures taken to Flickr, so this morning I created myself a flickr account, configured the phone and tried it out.

It’s pretty cool, I can take a photo with my phone and then select an option and upload it straight away to Flickr. I’ve also found that Flickr can link to this blog, so now I can take a picture, select an option… type a short message and presto the image taken is uploaded to It’s actually pretty cool, and it seems to work well. I must admit that I’m now slightly tempted to get Flickr Pro account, although I think I’ll wait a bit and see how much I use it first.

BTW you can see an example of all this wizardry with the OMFG post.
