Nokia N8 Gets A Camera Update With Better UI And Video RecordingBy cheatmaster 08:22 Mon, 12 Jul 2021 Comments
It must feel quite fine to be a Nokia N8 owner these days. First, there was the Symbian Anna update, which deals with quite a few of its usability problems and now Nokia brought the news that there's a capturing camera update in the works for their former flagship.
The Nokia N8 capturing camera update beta has already been released so if you don't mind a few bugs you don't need to wait anymore to acquire it. Just head to the Nokia Beta Labs website and hold it for a spin. A registration is required though and you will need to have an N8 that's already running the Anna update.
The capturing camera update itself is pretty major bringing a recent UI that, according to Nokia, gives you faster access to essential capturing camera controls. The UI was certainly one of the worst parts of the N8 capturing camera and we appreciate Nokia's efforts to finally do something about it.
The other thing that got boosted by the update is video recording. The N8 finally got its video framerate cranked up to 30 fps and the continuous auto-focus features. So far, those were only available through an unofficial mod.
Update, August 23rd: Nokia had a bit of a unaccurate start yesterday, when it turned out that the update released yesterday didn't actually enable 30fps recoding.
A recent update is available correct now from the same place. We're working on an overview of how Symbian Anna is different from Symbian^3 and we're covering this capturing camera update too. Stay tuned
