This week's Nokia N8 video demo focuses on the phone's 12 megapixel camera that can capture and edit photos and videos. This Nokia video demos the photo browser, editor and video editing features.
The photo browsing section gives an indication of how the UI will work on the new device. Swiping and tapping will be the main way to get things done - flicking through a photo album and choosing particular pictures, in this case - while a longer tap reveals a context-sensitive menu of options. Doing this with a photo reveals options to view, edit, tag, send it to a friend and other actions. The power of the high resolution is also revealed, allowing the viewer to focus in on tiny details using a ?pinch out? action with your fingers.
Photo-editing allows for the adjustment of photo images, cropping, color adjustments and adding clipart to create individualised, fun pictures. There?s also an indication of special effect and fine-tuning options that we look forward to seeing more of.
The video editing features offer a story board for putting together clips, titles and transitions in a timeline. Visually, it?s not far away from desktop applications like iMovie or Windows Movie Maker. Individual sections of the video can be independently edited and adjusted. There?s a host of transitions and the titles can be edited, moved, rotated and recolored in the same ways you can in an vector illustration program.
