Video: Stunning video shot and edited on the N8 – with solution for close up macro! (+more macro samples)
Thanks to Manpreet Jagpal for the heads up to firstname.lastname@example.org, here below is one of the most beautiful videos I’ve seen shot on a phone – and it’s edited on it too.
What’s more, you may be suspicious that there are very clear close up shots with blurred background. But the N8 has a fixed focus video meaning everything is clear except close up shots. This was achieved simply and cleverly with a magnifying glass! Neat! Have you tried that out? I’m gonna want to try that. 🙂
Also pretty important but not often shouted about is the ability to record precision audio in stereo. It really helps give that sense of being there – that sort of holophonics experience – especially over good speakers/headphones.(I literally shivered when the “wind” blew across my ears)
I’d happily listen to an hour recording of plain running water recorded by the N8 – You know, like those nature sounds tracks. It would be so easy to make your own with the N8 – perfect for relaxing/revising and sharing.
The location is Suolijärvi Lake, Tampere, Finland – it looks so picturesque.
