GLOBAL – The Nokia N8 is a whole new breed of camera phone. No other mobile comes close to the quality you can produce using its Carl Zeiss optics and large 12-megapixel sensor. But not all of us have the training to make professional-looking videos and photos. To help you make the most of this new capability, we’re introducing a new series that will run every day for the next couple of weeks – the Nokia N8 Camera School. It’s tutorials, tips and ideas to help you develop your skills and produce better results in still photography and video.
Your host for this series is Haje Jan Kamps, one of the leading authorities on digital photography and author of the acclaimed photocritic.org blog.
Don’t worry if you haven’t yet got a Nokia N8 to hand – Haje’s articles will help any photographer and film-maker with any equipment to improve their work – though they will help you most if you do get the latest mobile supermodel, of course.
Here’s what you’ve got to look forward to. Keep this post bookmarked – we’ll fill in the links as the articles and videos go online.
