Video: HD Video Sample of Nokia N8 real Digital Zoom (user Proto N8)

| May 2, 2010 | Reply

Here’s another sample of the N8 video (taken from Amhed360’S post before it was removed)

It’s not by Nokia, it’s from a user.

The other one I’ve seen (N8 on a plane ) that no one else managed to see matched the quality of Nokia’s official video sample.

e.g. if you look at that post, all the dials and the text on the plane’s dashboard are readable.


Check out the digital zooming action. Just like the N86, we have proper working digital zoom.

Normally, when camera phones zoom in on a 640×480 video, all they do is make those pixels bigger. Hence why digital zoom is almost always blurry.

Basically with proper digital zoom, you take all that 4000×3000 pixels, and just move the 1280x720p frame around. This maintains much of the detail better.

e.g. check out this image below

But look how far away it actually is. It’s the best solution to making do without the bulk of optical zoom.
