Nokia N8 and TRON takes over Canadian Rogers’ YouTube Page!

December 19, 2010 3 comments

Keith has noticed that Canadian network “Rogers” has been taken over by Nokia N8 and TRON!

Go check it out – it looks AWESOME! It’s part of their HD Holiday campaign that we first saw late November.

At first it looks like an ordinary youtube page and then a big Nokia N8 jumps in to the picture and starts playing TRON. Check it out as it begins to destroy the youtube page!

HD Video: Finnish Lakesides from Dawn to Dusk – Filmed and edited on the Nokia N8

November 10, 2010 3 comments

Above is another stunning Nokia N8 video from topolino70 who amongst many are truly showcasing how fantastic the N8’s HD recording is.

Once your shot is composed, keep it steady on a tripod. This makes your video look like a series of moving pictures because each and every frame is so clear. Go ahead, pause at any moment and the screenshot is crystal clear. As mentioned before, the close up shots are produced with a simple magnifying glass. A great advantage of the N8’s Active Hyper-Focal Focus is that past that close up distance, you are always in focus. No initial focus necessary (though there are certain times when you’d want only certain things to be in focus but that’s another story.

Videos: Nokia C7 Sample Videos 720p HD Video Tests

October 27, 2010 3 comments

Now before you watch this, I think it’s important to note that like the N8, the uncovered camera glass on the C7 (is it glass? Well whatever it is) is prone to finger prints/smudges/grease which if left unwiped very easily DESTROYS your image/video quality. It takes a second to wipe but remembering to do so is the bugger.

720p Video: Very weird unboxing (smashing) of the Nokia N8 – filmed by the Nokia N8

October 10, 2010 10 comments

As “UNBOXINGS” go, this is one of the weirdest ones I’ve ever seen. But hey, kudos to N8 for inspiring even crazy people to unbox it on camera and later getting them decent any time/anywhere HD cams to share their craziness world wide.

The guy, aptly named Mr Tard Mo has uploaded a couple of vids shot by his new N8 which he’s gone (even more) crazy for. At one point, the N8 box is SMASHED by a sledge hammer. Don’t worry though, there’s no N8 inside.

And here’s the same crazy biker guy using a Takegawa 194 as a hair dryer.


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, 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.

HD Videos: Nokia N8 Sample videos – low light and outdoors 720p

August 31, 2010 17 comments

Here are some  sample videos from the Nokia N8 uploaded by silverato3428 – The first three supposedly in low light, and the fourth outdoors. Be sure to click the 720p HD version.

I’m curious to know how the N8 is able to resolve that text.  It seems a little too clear for fixed focus video and have something that close be in focus, whilst objects further away are still close.

Mummy –

Just seconds away from 1000heads/WOMWorld/Nokia HQ – outdoor.

  • The colour looks great, the frame rate looks smooth.
  • The N8 is also able to quickly adjust to different brightness levels.
  • Panning looks rather smooth too. Normally, movement of the phone would cause a somewhat jelly like distortion.

Thanks to bharadwaj for the heads up!

Get yourself a decent pair of headphones to listen to the marvelous Nseries grade audio quality.

Awesome sound for your video since 2005 when all others were producing (and some still are) shitty, tinny audio.

A quick browse at youtube brings up a video supposedly shot on the Nokia N8, 720p HD. I haven’t got much time to analyse it as I have to go but much of the detail can be read here at this source.

Each week, judges “American Idol” contestant selected the outstanding, of the two judges who received the highest rating that week. Production of “American Idol” produced an outstanding clip that special deal, filmed entirely on a cell phone.זאת,However, as part of the advertising cooperation Keshet Eurocom, a representative of Nokia in Israel.Last season, clips taken with mobile phones N85 and N86, but this year won a production work with the N8, which supports HD-quality video resolution 1080×720 (or 720p).הThe N8, which is expected to be launched in Israel next month, is the first device equipped with a Nokia-made this capability.

You can see the red recording light and according to one of the comments, “between 2:37 and 2:39, you can see the N8 in the car’s reflection!”

The video was reuploaded by none other than Camb078 from

and another

Not sure if there’s any more.
