While opinion may be divided on the success of the Nokia N8 as a smartphone, and its Symbian^3 operating system, it has drawn generally favourable comment on the quality of its camera functions, both as a camera and videocamera.
That’s not to say the Nokia N8 is a replacement for a standalone digital camera or videocamera, but at a pinch it will produce decent results.
So Nokia has commissioned Haje Jan Kamps, author of the photocritic.org blog, to write a series of articles for the Nokia N8 Camera School.
Individual tutorials are available on these topics and more:
Controlling depth of field
Photographing urban landscapes
Framing video scenes
Tips for better nature videos
Reportage and documentary film-making
Lighting for video
Creating extreme sport videos
Filming action sequence
Editing video to music
Distributing your video
Scripting a video
While commissioned for Nokia, the tutorials at the N8 Camera School provide good general tips for any budding photographer or movie / documentary maker.
