Hey, be as obsessed about photography as you want, that's what we're here for. :-) I think the target got whiter because of different weather (more sun), or angle, but was it sharper? You should have tried two photos from the same spot in auto and landscape to see if there's a difference. Landscape mode simply focuses your camera to infinity so there's no danger of focusing on some object between you and the landscape and getting blurred hills and mountains because one branch was in the way. I remember how one of my first photos with an autofocus camera was through the window, and of course the phone focused on the dirt on the glass instead of the scene outside. :-))) And that phone had very bad controls, had to dig so deep to get something that I'd just give up.
If your image (or the part you want to see) is too white set white balance to "sunny" or adjust exposure a little. Or simply don't worry - all phones have lower dynamic range than big cameras, so, if the differences between light and dark are too extreme, the light part will go white. It's called "clipping". I was worried because it happens during summer, but then I saw that Galaxy S4 has even worse problems (Xperia Z1 even in very low light) so I stopped caring. Speaking of light, I can manually adjust ISO (sensor sensitivity) from 100 to 800. However, I took a photo of a friend's dog jumping in Sport mode and later saw that ISO was 984! This phone still keeps surprising me. :-D
Hmmm, now that Weather doesn't work any more maybe I should delete it. Yep, I think you're fine as it is. With a hacked phone you could get some more space, but it's not too important if you have enough. Also there are some modifications and improvements you could try but there's plenty of time for that. But hacking is really not too hard, just blindly following the instructions and the worst thing that can happen is that your phone keeps working like it did before. Now there are no more updates from the Store and people still develop apps, having a hacked phone is just convenient (as they can't sign their apps).
I already gave Terjim the same copy-paste instructions on page 8 or 9, but he doesn't get Belle as an option, at least that's what I understood. Let's see if Carol manages to help. :-)
AnonD-172944, 09 Jan 2014I hope the applications and games I installed on my Anna OS will work for the Delight firmware... moreYou most probably have an "off the shelf" product. The so called testers. Or a branded phone. One from the two. But, on how you describe your phone. Sound more like an shelf product then a branded one. the only way to get belle refresh with your device is by flashing it with phoenix. Here you can find a good tutorial http://n8delight.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/how-to-flash-phoenix-flashing-tutorial.html
As for flashing the official firmware, which i recommend doing, you will need do download it. Navifirm does not work anymore so that will be a bit of a problem. With phoenix you can download an official firmware but i don't remember exactly how, all i know is that you will need to find an official product code for your country (minding the fact that you don't have an official product code), and your n8 color (the color is not that important). With that product code you can download the official firmware then just flash it with phoenix follwing the tutorial i gave you... Maybe i can help you with the product code, but i don't promise anything. What is your country? is the first question...
Stupid me, 09 Jan 2014“Men have to learn a lot to get to the same level of ignorance.” OMG! I am cracking up :-))).... moreThank you bro. I would be so delighted for your assistance. thanks in anticipation
@MdN and Carol, I am still expecting your step by step guide to the upgrading to Belle OS. thanks man

I am cracking up :-))). I hope you know that men end up in the dog house for statements like that :-D. Hilarious parrot talk, too :-) …but I intend to take some photos of them – whenever. Hope my camera delivers there!!!
Well, sorry to sound obsessed with photography but yesterday, we went back to the same spot and I took some shots again but in “landscape” and guess what, the automatic shots were better. I used the little church in the distance as my reference. It was quite recognizable with the automatic shot but was just a white shape in the landscape shot, despite the weather being glorious. Maybe there was too much light??? Well, that is just my experience. Not climbing that hill again for a while.
No, I have not tried setting up my email yet. Sounds like a lost cause now, so maybe I won’t bother to waste my time trying when I can get it off my PC. I reinstalled App Stop, vLight, YouTube downloader, Skype, Opera Mini, Viber (don’t know why) and my favourite NetQin Security v5.0 Pro. I’ll use NetQin to try and delete some of the useless Apps. Way back, I was delighted to delete the weather app which had refused to go, but I never got around to trying to delete anything else after that. But…I remember going to NetQin’s App management, selecting the weather app and deleting it from there when all other attempts failed. I only just discovered too, that NetQin finds other running apps so, by using both App Stop and NetQin together, I can conserve a lot more on the battery.
I am not daring enough to hack my phone and install all kinds of apps. After all, women are ignorant, right? :-D So, if NetQin is cleaning out my phone, giving me back memory, blocking viruses, scanning the system, deleting unwanted apps, finding & and shutting down running apps, optimizing performance and telling me “Your phone is running good” :-) then what more can an ignorant woman want, huh? :D
Oh! If no one responds to Terjin (about Belle upgrade) by the time I get back I'll do so, but later. It will be Carol's instructions which I altered (only the wording) to suit myself. Just alerting him that I tampered with it. Hope I get internet connection because the erratic service is driving me nuts so I may have to go and lodge another complaint.
good eve to nokia users. what do you think if nokia woul put some important application able to download on the store like the mobile cleaner or whatsoever.. pls nokia????

As for apps and games you'd have to reinstall them, but when Delight gets updated, they stay. This is just a suggestion if you can't get Belle. I got my phone with Belle Refresh already installed so I'm not an expert in flashing. It's 3 in the morning here so talk tomorrow! ;-)

How do I upgrade to the Delight? Is it more preferable to Belle? or why should I upgrade to Delight (it is only a question)?
AnonD-172944, 09 Jan 2014Where can I go if I need your help and assistance?I'm mostly here or just looking around on DailyMobile forum and some others... I see I already gave you Carol's instructions, but if Belle is not an option and you just got Anna then maybe it's not available for your phone? Maybe Carol will know better, check out again tomorrow...
Would you consider upgrading to custom firmware instead? Like Delight, it's the same as Belle but a little improved. And seems to be easy enough to do.
As for 2G/3G, if you go to Settings - Connectivity - Network, does it let you choose Network Mode? 2G = GSM.

secondly, my anna does not use 2g network. it is fixed on 3g network and does not have features to switch it to 2g network. i hope the belle os has 2g network because the 3g network makes my phone hot after few moments of browsing which consumes my battery life at an high rate.

I'm just trying to have enough practice and knowledge to be able to get the camera out of the way of taking good photos. Actually, it's a common fact that women take better photos because they do NOT obsess about technical stuff, so use that to your advantage. Men have to learn a lot to get to the same level of ignorance. ;-))) Just learn how to use it and you're set. The few fast settings probably cover 95% of situations, and there's finer stuff further in the menu. Carol explained the "tiny symbols" well. :-)
I downloaded CameraPro off some website first, it just stood there until I had time to see what it's about, then I started using it and finally I bought it straight from the developer's page (tequnique.com) the other day = no money to Nokia, and (hopefully) I get updates on time. He's one of the few devs still updating his apps.
Well I'm not much of a parrot guy so I had no idea if those were breeds or personal names, sorry! :-)
By the way, did you try to set up your email? Some say that automatic email setup stopped working too, a few days ago (thanx Nokia).
