when i tell them that it's symbian, however, few who know about it do mock me, but i pity their ignorance! Funny part is when i take a picture and show them what my phone is capable of doing, they stand dumbstruck, just couldn't believe their eyes.
however, there's one thing i would like to add though. if for some reason you are not able to take good image by jus 'point' and 'shoot' try to play around with the 'various' option provided. they really help. for eg. while taking close pic, long press on the screen and select close up. likewise there are 'n' numbers of parameters to play with. i am really impressed with the camera interface. it has something for everyone.
can anyone please help me understand the various camera features in detail, what setting to be used when and what different parameters do??

Breaking: Damian Dinning is leaving Nokia!
Dinning joined Nokia in April 2004 and brought Nokia many years of experience in cameras and photography that included key roles at Minolta UK and Eastman Kodak.
In a statement released to AP, Nokia UK said: ‘Following the relocation of key strategic roles to Finland, and with great reluctance, Damian Dinning has made a personal decision to leave the company effective 30 November 2012.’ AP understands that Dinning’s decision to leave came as a blow to bosses.
Dinning was lead program manager for Imaging Experience at Nokia. He was the reponsible man for the revolutionary Nokia 808 PureView with the amazing possibilities of the 41MP sensor.

AnonD-79730, 22 Nov 2012sorry friend it is the design and pricing other than u've posted. that makes n8 popular. what... moreSory buddy, but he is kind of right. 808 was never promoted and when is not promoted, people don't know about it. Where i leave there is no808 in any store but one, and that came like only a month ago. No carrier has it. You can see only samdung everywhere and icrap. This means promoting. What people eyes see everyday is what people buy. A good form of manipulating, a good market strategy. You know, like you see apple in every movie know. What you think is that? A innocent appearence?:))
it seems prety a gud 4ne en i wld love to get 1 otherwse where i cld possibly find da lowest prices of it

AnonD-79730, 22 Nov 2012sorry friend it is the design and pricing other than u've posted. that makes n8 popular.
what... morewhen nokia n8 was released roughly 2years ago, they don't have windows and asha yet.. It is expensive and i could have bought it if it is not because of it's ugly design that i chose c7... There's no other os or type of phones that compete n8 among nokia's lineup of phones during it's released; and there were a lot of posters showcasing n8 was supreme together with e7 and c7..
Nokia did not make an effort to promote it because they are too focused with windows phones and ashas! Don't you get it..? Because of windows phones and ashas.. and what do you mean because of pricing that makes n8 more popular?? Be more specific! Phones are over priced or expensive in their 1st released just like n8 2 years ago.. A lot of network/carriers do not include 808 in their plans and it's not like that before when n8 was released.. The availability of 808 is very limited AGAIN because of the presence of windows phones and ashas! Nokia is showcasing now the windows phones and their low priced ashas.! 808 is far more ignored though it is superior in terms of hardware and software with belle feature pack 2.. I don't care whether it's popular or not.. it is one of a kind and i'm so happy to have it.. ! Now, tell what makes n8 more popular and be more specific my friend.. :)
hi guys i just downloaded sCam app then i found this app can take photos with 41.5 MP not only 38 or 34 and u can use front facing camera with it too very nice app use it

hello hi ! please can you help me ! how can I setup VPN ! I living in UAE and a lot of web site of voip is blocked ! can you help me to setup ! in iPhone is so easy to setup only download software ! but in Nokia I can not understand how to setup !
kindat, 22 Nov 2012popularity of n8 is higher than 808.. Why?It is because there's a lot of nokia n8 users and it is one of nokia's bestsellers.. 808 is more powerful than n8 with 1.3 GH processor, nokia clearblack display, 41 megapixel sensor, and nfc, etc.. but nokia did not make an effort to promote it; they are too focused with windows phones now. It's sad that despite it's greatness, it is neglected.. Until now some people in nokia stores did not know that this phone exists.. Even though, I feel lucky to have it and i will use it for many years to come. It is a must keep phone..
I am planning to have both windows 8 nokia lumia 920 and this phone and i'm fine.. :)
