Nokia N8 sample videos?

The guys at http://www.thenokian8.info/nokia-n8-video-clarity.html seem to have gotten their hands on a few sample videos supposedly taken with the N8.

Although I can’t guarantee that these videos were actually taken with the N8 we see that the device used shows pretty decent digital zoom (to a point) and I also didn’t notice any dropped frames (YAY!!! 🙂 ). See one of the sample videos available below and tell us what you think of the video in the comments!

Other videos can be found at saadik1001’s youtube channel:

      It’s possibly upscaled. But we don’t know for sure that this is from the N8 that’s why I said that I can’t verify it

    Glad you posted, wasn’t sure myself when I saw them if they were N8.

    It’s so bloody annoying that we’re still 2 months away from N8 release -_-. I know they’re optimizing it and such but meh. Over 13 months since a Symbian flagship has been on sale….15 until the new one.

      Hence the question mark in the title! LOL
      Can’t be sure so better to err on the side of caution. IF, and this is a big IF, this video was actually taken with the device then all those people expecting dropped frames, crappy bit rate, tons of artifacts and bad colors will be rather disappointed.

        Haha, I know.

        I didn’t watch the entire video (just a few seconds) as I just assumed they were pissing about to put N8 in the title. (Not that my stupid connection would have loaded the video properly at the time…virgin media keeps bloody slowing to snail pace for some reason )

          I’m kinda just waiting to see whether anyone can verify or refute that this is actually taken with the N8

      Hi, sorry your post got delayed. WordPress blocks things that have multiple links (currently more than 4, was 2 before) to prevent spammers linking.

    Reasons why this CAN’T be N8.
    1. Autofocus. N8 doesnt have continuous autofocus.
    2. Its not even HD. the quality sucks, the ratio is 4:3 compared to N8’s 16:9 ratio for HD video.
    3. color balance and contrast sucks. N8 has AWESOME color balance and contrast.

    OR

    He might have recorded this in VGA and exported in HD through his video editor which gives us this NON-HD quality which still doesnt look like N8 quality.

    So either this is N8’s VGA quality or this isnt N8 AT ALL

    it didnt seem to have autofocus…seemed a lot like fixed focus to me.
    The aspect ratio is DEFINITELY NOT 16:9 so it’s quite possibly not the n8 at all

    I’m only interested in the HD video recording capability of the N8 I’ll be buying. This is definitely not it 🙂

      I know, don’t worry I was referring to the uploader when I said they just put “N8” there 🙂
