  • 3. Nokia N8
    Best mobile imaging device today
    12Mpix stills and 720p HD Video (H.262/MPEG-4)
    28mm vide angle F2.8 Carl Zeiss Tessar Optics
    Large 1/1.83” Image sensor and Xenon flash
    HDMI connectivity
    Image processing tuned by photographers
  • 4. Practicalities
    Make sure the Camera is on High Definition!
    To save battery, make sure you turn off the “Save Location info”
    For speed and reliability, use a memory card to store the footage
    For speed, download your footage to PC/Mac via card reader
  • 5. Telling a story through video
    Excellent idea
    Fluent story telling
    Technical execution
  • 6. Telling a story through video
    Excellent idea = Difficult
    Fluent story telling = Challenging
    Technical execution = Easy
  • 7. Technical potholes
    Lens flare
    Auto Focus with video
    Auto exposure
    Auto White Balance
    Low light performance and noise
  • 8. Lens Flare
    From this
    To this
    Plan your shots
    Make sure lens is clean
    Use hand as lens hood
  • 9. Auto focus
    Video sharp from roughly 1 meter to infinity
    With additional wide angle lens you can use shorter distances
    Extreme Close-ups achievable with close-up lens
  • 10. Auto Exposure
    AE adjusted according to relatively small spot located center of the image
    Place bright areas center frame when ever possible
    People see blown out whites but don´t mind black
  • 11. Auto Exposure
    Scenes with very high dynamic range can be evened out with external lights or careful planning.
    If high contrast scenes can´t be avoided measure exposure from the brightest part of the scene!
  • 12. Auto White Balance
    AWB designed to correct color errors caused by different lighting conditions.
    Designed not to be perfect. Candle light should be warm, snow gold.
    For desired effect manual AWB can be used. Cloudy pre-setting on sunny day gives warm tones.
    Several light sources in one scene may cause problems.
  • 13. Low light performance
    For best possible results, Cheat.
    Normal mode 25fps, low light 15fps, night 5 fps.
  • 14. Zoom
    3 times digital zoom available.
    No loss in sharpness!
    For best results go with either 2x or 3x zoom.
    Zoom above the “i” in Nokia!
  • 15. Handshake
    Handshake rarely looks good
    Unless it´s intentional
    When using steady cams or tripods turn off the video stabilization
    Avoid very fast panning in your takes
    It might distort vertical lines
  • 16. Audio
    Wind noise reduction.
    Recording level control in harsh environments like rock concerts.
    Bit rate 128000, Sampling rate 48000.
    Two stereo microphones, one facing forward one backward

  • 19. Super easy to carry when travelling
    And you can call help when in you ran out of money
  • 20. It´s easy to get creative with small device
    And you can take it to places
    where SLR´s are not allowed =)
  • 21. Easy to cover the craziestscenesfrom multiple angles
  • 22. “There´s more to the picture than meets the eye”
    -Neil Young
    Enjoy the device and Get creative
