Nokia 808 PureView on Everest

Published by at

Mountaineer Atte Miettinen is aiming to be the first Finn to climb highest mountain on each of the seven continents. On his recent expedition to Everest he took a long a Nokia 808 PureView to record images and videos of his climb. 

The Nokia 808 PureView not only survived the harsh conditions on the world's highest mountain, but is now being auctioned off in aid of the Dubai Autism Center charity. 

Nokia Conversations has published an interview with Atte, in which he talks about his experiences on the world's highest mountain. When asked about what he thought of the Nokia 808 PureView, he said:

I enjoy it a great deal. I carried a big DSLR as well but I had a big preference for the small and compact Nokia 808 PureView. It was much easier to carry around.

I was amazed at the quality of the pictures. It’s an excellent camera and I think the product will do very well when it gets launched.

It’ll be nice to look back at the pictures and remember the different things that happened on the trip and you appreciate things a lot more that way.

More information on Atte's Seven Summits challenge is available on his website. Below we have included three photo captured during the ascent. You can view additional pictures from the expedition on Atte's Facebook page.
