OK, seems I’ve been using only the on-screen shutter all along. Did not know there was a shutter button too (had a little confusion of the brain over this shutter business). I would imagine that button is at the lower rt. side of the phone called "camera key" according to a user guide I just found. OK. So I won't be using the shutter button because that is too hard to press. I'll end up shaking more if I use it. I failed to download Camera Pro. I kept seeing iLivid and nothing happened thereafter. I wonder why I ended up with 7 iLivid things on my PC. Anyway, I deleted them all because I’m not sure they should be there at all. I tried downloading the app straight onto the phone through Opera Mini too, but it seems I am not doing something right. I give up! I’ll try again tomorrow if I have any energy left.

I agree about not buying data. I'm paying for the internet for my PC and I'm not paying the same thing twice. I just got some free data from my operator for this summer so I'm fine, when it runs out... I can get 200MB for 2 euro/month which will be more than I need when I'm not at home. Long live Opera Mini. Ah, Medicine Man, saw that one a few times. :-)
I know, I know, you HAVE to keep still in low light. Use the on-screen shutter instead of the shutter button, hold the phone tight etc. Practice, practice, practice! :-) At low light the exposure can be as low as one fifth of a second and my arms can go quite a distance in that time. Or put you phone on something that doesn't move. I tried something... If I use CameraPro, zoom all the way (more than the default camera can) to some distant object and put my phone on my knee when I'm sitting down, I can still see the picture jumping a little every second, when my heart beats. So the trick is to take a photo between two heartbeats? :-D Sometimes I think I should glue the phone to a brick to keep it heavier and steadier. :-) On the first week after I bought the N8 I went home from somewhere, it was snowing, late night and there were no cars so I stood in the middle of the road and took a few shots. I thought my arms were steady but when I saw the photos later... They were not. Today I could take the same photo and have it sharp, but now there's no snow. :-)

If it doesn't help I guess you have to look for firmware with the camera update included and flash your phone using Phoenix. I can't help you there as I got my phone with Belle Refresh and the camera is great, as well as Belle.
I upgrade to New belle tho it has amazing features it made it other applications disappear. Some application which are supported by Anna cannot work with belle. Anna was best. Need New upgrade other than belle plz.

...but I can't find it now any more because Nokia says that it is now included in the Belle update. So I guess you have to search for that file on the internet, or Anna software with the camera update included, or upgrade to Belle. Or try shooting videos with CameraPro, it supports continuous autofocus.

You have to know what you want to do with your phone, and decide if N8 has what you need. There are no problems when you learn how to use it, just like any other phone. As for battery life, it's like any smartphone... 1 day hard use, or 2-3 days normal use. You can see the GSMArena battery test here:

I have some downloaded movies on my N8 (thanks for telling me how to do it) but I only looked at "Medicine man" which I quite enjoyed. Real kicks. Then the folks are telling me they did not know that the N8 was sooo gooood!!! Then the photos are not too bad (actually awful), because I can't keep still not for nothing!
Me worry? You kidding? Haven't you noticed? It is you guys who are worrying about me more than I am worrying about myself. I can handle my case you know ;-). Bye now.
Dear Friends, I want buy N8 pl. opinion me for this handset. any problem on this set. what is battery life good or poor.

Yeah, let's go back to the N8. The news for today are: there's a new update on the way, "Nokia Social update for Twitter login changes." I don't use Twitter and haven't got it yet anyway, but for those who do, hit the "SW update" icon and see if it's already available in your country!
