  • The first mobile phone with a video camera introduced in Japan SHARP SH-04 – Jphone (one decade of camera phones) 2005 >> The emergence of a new aesthetic is now followed by a creative mobile media practice. I will come back to this at the end of my presentation. In 2006 Nokia became the worlds largest camera manufacturer and there are more camera phones than digital video or stills cameras. Nokia 8 has got a 12 Megapixel camera and video in HD. While I made a distinctive choice using a 2005 mobile phone recording in a low-res resolution (176 X 208 pixels). This is one of the unique points about the mobile-mentary project. Non-full length film used a phone of such low image quality.
