Video: Pamela Anderson Filmed on the Nokia N8 at The Commuter Première in London

So, for my lunch break I’d like to share with you the delectable Pamela Anderson who stars in the Nokia N8 McHenry Brothers Film: The Commuter. The rest I’ll try to upload later today after my prof meeting finishes – possibly sometime this evening.

With digicam on one hand and N8 on the other I had something to continuously take photos and N8 to shoot video. Annoyingly, N8 was doing a better job at taking shot after shot than my Samsung WB600 (which was taking ages in between shots). I loved that I could just sneak the N8 in and weasel it past the big press DSLRs and TV cameras (without being intrusive of course).

Such an awkward angle just to get into view past the big media guys with their hog sized cameras. But was very easy since N8 is small. Out of all the camera phones in the building, N8 was obviously taking the best photos. Felt sorry for the iPhone 4/Legend/BB users who kept taking photos only to be rewarded with blurry dark camera phone fuzz.


As Pam was the last celeb to enter this meant my arm had been high in salute for like 90 minutes (filming the previous celebs which I’ll upload later) and so my arm was so tired, it was introducing unnatural shaking (which would have been more stable had I held the N8 with two hands or was less tired). Yes, need to go to the Gym I do.

I love how this guy is keeping eye contact. Shots by Nokia N8 (full 9MP)

The only difficult thing with the N8 is that due to lack of camera cover, smudged to the camera glass occurs often (for me) and can easily wreck a photo. Also another issue is the camera UI which I have moaned about in S60 5th which still persists pretty much in S^3. But that’s another post I’d like to tackle separately.

Ah. How surreal. As a kid reminiscing on memories of Bay(be)watch, the last thing I thought I’d ever be doing is be in with Press to take pictures of her with a phone (then again, the concept of a phone on a cell phone never entered my mind. I don’t think I even knew about cell phones)

Word Association of Baywatch: Pammie or Hoff?

And lastly, Pamela Anderson’s Autograph of course: The difficulty in getting this tiny moleskine book. (I forgot to bring a pen/pad and had to trapse around Regent Street, ending up in Liberty to the slowest gift-till girl ever). The pen was broken too 😦 Nevertheless, result 🙂

I tell myself always to have a Sharpie as I’ll never know who I’ll come across…and the day I knew there’d be a bunch of celebs…nada.

Major thanks to Kwai Chi and Katie from Nokia.co.uk/N8!

      No, I don’t think you need to worry. The components and material used for N8 are the same. It is assembled at Nokia’s own factory which should have the same QA control and standard.

      Humans are not angels and they do make mistakes but so long as the error is in control rate, it is acceptable. What I am saying is In Finaln usually you can not have lawsuits against a doctor. It is said 5% operation failure is acceptable. For some people who have a bad luck, it is very sad thing. But it is the life and reality.

      If you face some problem, contact Nokia sales support and return it for a change as soon as possible. It has 14 days guarantee. Try to use is as much as possible within 14 days. If nothing like a faulty device, you really should not worry at all.

    Great post!

    Is their a way of disabling the 2nd mic on the video mode?
    Seems due to the dolby surround it has recorded people behind you talking… lol

      Yeah I did have problems with the audio. I mean, I couldn’t hear what Pam was saying in person so I doubt it could have been picked up even by the N8’s microphones. The folks behind me though were pretty loud.

      Oh wait – I can hear Pamela a bit. Didn’t actually hear that at the time 😛

    Oh my God! The video and photo quality is breath-taking! How can the quality be soooo GOOD! And it is from a mobile phone!
