Nokia N8-00 - Picture and video tips

Press and hold the camera key.

When taking a picture:

  • Use both hands to keep the camera steady.

  • When you zoom in, the image quality may decrease.

  • The camera activates battery saving mode after about a minute of inactivity. To activate the camera again, press the camera key briefly.

  • You can set the user defined scene to be used as the default scene every time you open the camera. Select qgn-indi-cam4-tb-extension.jpg > Scene mode > User defined > Edit. Edit the settings, and select Set as default scene mode > Yes.

  • Keep a safe distance when using the flash. Do not use the flash on people or animals at close range. Do not cover the flash while taking a picture.

To record high quality HD video:

  • Close any open applications before recording.

  • Record to your device mass memory, if possible.

  • If recording to a microSD memory card, use a class 4 card (32 Mbit/s (4 MB/s)), or higher, from a well-known manufacturer.

    Before first use, back up any important data on the card, and use the device to format the card, even if the card has previously been formatted or used in a Nokia device. Formatting deletes all data on the card.

    If the performance of the memory card degrades over time, back up any important data on the card, and use the device to format the card.
