Damian Dinning, the camera guru from Nokia, just published a couple of posts highlighting some of the capabilities on the Nokia N8 that they’ve been working on for a long time. Since April 2004 to be exact. He backed it up with some beautiful sample photos for you to enjoy. Read on for the 10 reasons you’ll love the camera on the Nokia N8.
Last Wednesday was the first year anniversary of the Nokia Users Monthly Meetup in New York. As usual, we hung out at the NY flagship store for a couple of hours, then headed out for food and drinks. We went to our original spot, Brother Jimmy’s, and I had the Nokia N900 to take some flash photos. Check it out.
The Nokia E72 isn’t out yet, but I’ve got to play with a pre-production model during the Mobile Geeks of NY meetup. It is the update to the E71, whose camera I absolutely hate. The camera app was the first thing I checked on the E72 and I was surprised to see a new autofocus system. Check out the video.
All About Symbian reports that the next firmware on the Nokia N86 will include camera face detection for autofocus and an improvement in overall photo quality. The system will be similar to other cameras where faces will be tracked anywhere in the frame and followed by the camera for proper focus and exposure.
After a month of using the Nokia N97, minor scratches appeared on camera lens which didn’t really affect photo quality. This past weekend (approx. 45 days of usage), I notice photos that used flash were washed out on one side. It looks like more scratches appeared on the lens that are now affecting the photos.
Micky from Nokia Users wrote yesterday that the camera lens cover on the Nokia N97 may actually be scratching the lens. I checked my Nokia N97 and barely noticed anything until I turned it at a certain angle. I haven’t seen anything on my photos that could have been affected, and I’m not sure if it degrades the quality at all. Check your Nokia N97 and let us know if you notice any scratches caused by the cover.
Judging from past photos, it’s sometimes better to leave the flash off when taking photos inside a restaurant. We had lunch at Green Papaya Thai restaurant and had the Nokia N97 to take photos of the food. There was a large window behind me with enough light coming in. I made sure to force the Nokia N97 to keep the flash off. Take a look.
I previously mentioned the camera angle on the Nokia 5800 made objects appear bigger while shooting widescreen video. Since the Nokia N97 also have the option to shoot widescreen nHD video, I was hoping for a wider angle so I won’t have to stand too far from my subjects. Fortunately, Julien Fourgeaud who works with the Nokia team on the N97, reads our blog and kindly sent a comparison photo.
