N95 isn't at its best in low light situations, although it did alright with this party on a roof under the Brooklyn Bridge.
I thought I was being very cool and arty with this one; it's a stack of sheets of glass inside a big empty space off that rooftop. Pretty obscure-that low light thing is a big consideration with the N95. Lorenzo got a better picture of me taking shooting this than the photo itself:
And this one of me getting our location on the GPS function:
But in twilight, diffuse light and daylight it's right on the money.

The N95 has super sweet video as well; here's something I shot at the Yoko Devereaux Memorial Day BBQ.
Nokia let me try out the N95 for a couple of months. I could go on and on about what a tricked out fantastic piece of machinery the thing is, but it’s just too painful, as they actually just made me give it back. While the rest of the world is going nuts for the iPhone I'm just mourning my N95. So I won’t go on about the awesome web functionality, the speakers that are so good that the thing doubles as a boombox (I’d strut down the street holding it to my ear like an AM transistor radio circa 1975-only the sound was BIG and stereo) or the GPS and mapping features.
Instead I’m just going to post some of the images I captured using the N95's 5 megapixel camera over the past couple months. All pics are untouched; I find they expose a little hot, but tinkering with the contrast and brightness in iPhoto or any photo program makes 'em pop. More tomorrow.

The hunter becomes the hunted.
Discovered that onions need to be roasted over coals that are actually hot.
