Nokia N8 – Two Week Photography Review

Nokia N8 includes a 12 megapixel camera and Ziess lens

For a phone, the Nokia N8 offers an incredibly powerful camera and video package in a smartphone about the same size as an Apple iPhone. And for two weeks, I shot several hundred photos and dozens of videos on the smartphone’s 16 Gb of internal memory.

Little did I know that someone was targeting me.

It sounds a little sinister, but it really isn’t. A few weeks ago, I was contacted by someone at Nokia’s WOMWorld, who explained, “We are a Nokia sponsored community resource that, amongst other things, looks to get Nokia devices into the hands of creative types and tech enthusiasts.” Reading a little further, I realized he was talking about ME.

The video here is the unboxing of the Nokia N8. Sorry for the blurry video. I am using an old Flip video camera. (Maybe Flip will loan me a better camera, so that my videos don’t look so grainy? I could get used to this!)

Anyway, check back and go to my Flickr to see what kinds of photos I take with the Nokia. I’ll be reopening my photo studio, so I will use the camera to document that.
