Death Star

The impressive Nokia N8 was the undisputed camera king until the 808 made jaws fall to the floor. But even now the N8 is still a fantastic camera.

Here, AAS compares some shots with the 925 in taking pics of the moon (with telescopes).

For me, the N8 still impresses in the fine detail it managed to capture. However, where it struggled – compared to modern camera phones – is with exposure control and dynamic range. It was difficult to capture all aspects (light and dark) at the same time with the limited settings available. Therefore, I shall look (in future) at third party camera apps that might extend the capabilities of this still impressive smartphone camera.
