Motorola recruits eight photographers in eight cities to capture 'a day in the life of the world'


Motorola has just kicked in with a new marketing campaign for its Motozine ZN5 mobile. The phone features a five megapixel camera, developed in conjunction with Kodak, and so Motorola’s recruited eight photographers around the world to capture the essence of the city they live in, using the ZN5.

The photographers had to stay awake for 24 hours taking photos, but the results are surprisingly awesome. There’s a lovely picture of a taxi and a white van at 17:00 in London, and a beautifully muted shot of a railway station in Mumbai at 13:00. The Moscow subway at 01:00 is incredible, too.

Millions of mobile phone photos going to waste: enter the MAX BOX

max_box_image.jpgNew research from Felix Group suggests that millions of photos captured using mobile phones are going to waste because people have either forgotten that they’ve taken them, or they get stored away digitally, never to exist in printed form.

They reckon that the average camera phone has 67 images on it, with the most popular types of photo being groups of friends/colleagues on a night out, family pets, family members, holiday snaps, and famous people spotted in public.

Now the company believe they’ve come up with a solution to get those shots out in the open. The MAX BOX.
