Taking Photos using Nokia N8 (Personal Experience)

The first thing I did after having Nokia N8 (product details in Bahasa Indonesia) in my hands last week was taking photos. I have been following this phone for months, and feel so lucky because I now have chance to try it myself. First impression: Love it! Nokia N8 offers a great improvements on its camera. Now, it has 12 MP camera, equipped with Carl Zeiss lens and also Xenon flash.

I like taking photos (go to Flickr photostream for photos), but since I live in Jakarta right now (and I didn’t bring my DSLR camera), this phone should be a good companion for me. Better quality photos (using phone camera) is one of the features offered besides entertainment, music, business-related features, and also video. For this post, I will write more about the word ‘photo’. Anyway, you can explore full specification and features by going to Nokia N8 product page (or, go to Nokia Indonesia for details in Bahasa Indonesia).

In the last few days, I took some pictures in some different condition (day light, night, low-light). I have to admit that I’m really impressed by the final results. Each photo has around 1 MB in size. If needed, I can adjust some settings like “Scene Mode” (Automatic, User defines, Close-up, Portrait, Landscape, Sport, Night, and Night portrati), Color Tone (Normal, Sepia, Black and White, and Vivid), White Balance (Automatic,  Sunny, Cloudy, Incandescent, and Fluorescent), Light sensitivity, Contrast, Sharpness and also Exposure. But, the “Automatic” mode should just work when you only need to point and shoot.
After photos were taken, I can also make some basic editing actions like cropping, resizing, or color adjustment. Photo dimension taken using Nokia N8 is 4000×2248 pixels. For a landscape photo, it will not be a problem. But, when taking portrait photo I feel that it’s “too tall”.
Seeing is believing, right? So, here are some photos taken using my Nokia N8. All photos are displayed without any editing.

Well, since I don’t have iPhone 4 with me, I can give my personal comment. But, reading the comments and articles, iPhone wins on the effect/photo processing. For me, N8 gives me great photos. :)
