TIMELINE OF HISTORY. 60 Dioramas chronicle Philippine History at the Ayala Museum. Photo taken with the Nokia Lumia 1020.
MANILA, Philippines – Learning about Philippine history may not seem the ideal way of spending your weekend. But before Museum Month draws to an end, visit one or two museums and have a unique experience in learning about our ancestors, beginning from the Tabon man in Palawan to the recognition of our independence by the United States.
Imagine exploring the Ayala Museum’s Diorama Experience and having the privilege of taking photos. This is made even better with a smart phone that can take photos and videos just as good as how we see them.
It may seem a future invention, for a camera phone to take photos and videos with impeccable sharpness and high resolution. Reliving memories by looking at the photos and videos on your phone is no longer a dream, however. You can now vividly remember happy moments with the aid of a smart phone. This takes the competition to a whole new level.
Since taking of photos is not allowed in the museum, here is a preview of what you will see when you do go for a visit.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 provides excellent picture resolution, making this 360 VR worth seeing.
Reinventing smart phone photography, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is equipped with a 41-megapixel camera and a 3x lossless zoom, allowing you to zoom in without losing the picture quality. Video capture is also easy, as users can zoom in as much as 6x and still maintain high resolution.
Novices also get some help in the form of the Nokia Pro camera, which provides user-friendly settings similar to professional-grade cameras. The Nokia Rich Recording feature also allows for quality video and audio recording, letting you grab the best sights and sounds without fail.
With the high quality photos and videos the Nokia Lumia 1020 is able to produce, the very detailed dioramas in the Ayala Museum were clearly captured making the experience of taking these photos even more memorable and exciting.
The remarkable craftsmanship of each piece is definitely something guests have admired from the very beginning. For more than 30 years, the Diorama Experience has been attracting children and adults alike. Its founder, Fernando Zobel, worked with other artists to conceive the idea to chronicle Philippine history through 60 dioramas crafted by artisans from Paete, Laguna.
Other than the dioramas, hand-carved Maritime vessels representing the trading and development of the Philippine economy are also displayed. Each piece that makes up this exhibit was meticulously carved showing great detail captured by the Nokia Lumia 1020.
Whether it's taking great shots of people or the world around you, capturing those perfect moments used to be something only professional photographers could do. Now, all you need is the Nokia Lumia 1020. –Rappler.com
