Video: Nokia N8 Hack 2: Continuous Autofocus!

Yesterday hyperX showed us his hack for creating pretty much “RAW” noise “free” images” and 30FPS 720p video.

We also noted that amongst those that the N8 team are working on for official consumer firmware release, another noted by Damien Dining was continuous autofocus.

Lo and behold, hyperX has done it again now with continuous autofocus enabled on he Nokia N8. Check out the result!

In focus clock and then in focus background – no of the hyper focal (EDOF) like where everything is always in focus except those around 20cm from you. It takes about 1 second or so to autofocus. I’d love to have this option for the N8.

    I hope he can also hack it to include Tap-to-Focus. I really like that feature coz its just like manual focusing in video. And if we et all 3 (EDoF, CAF, T2F), then N8 will be unbeatable!

      i second that, thats one feature i rrly want,
      the second big one is, disabling flash by “one touch”…
      somtimes i want to capture a picture asap, without drawing too much attention u know

      in e72, i have to go and choose landescape, coz the autofocusing USES flash even if i have flash off, then when the pic is taken flash is not used, which is pffffff
