The new update is not so good. I doubt the use of pro mode if it is not going to use monochrome sensor.
The new update is not so good. I doubt the use of pro mode if it is not going to use monochrome sensor. Settings like shutter time, iso should have immediate effect in viewfinder image, otherwise its not pro mode, but rather ultra pro mode.. lol.. tbh pro mode is nothing more than a gimmick as of now, if you have6 got the update, trust me you aren't missing anything. Infact I feel battery draining fast with latest update.
In general, from the beginning, focus is the main pain area. I don't see option to lock focus and exposure, be it photo or video mode. Because of that it will keep on refocusing in video all the time, what nonsense
I also dont like the idea of not utilising available space for shutter button. I find the shutter button too small, wonder why i has to be round in shape, why can't it be rectangular so that it can be made bigger.
Sorry I have been quiet so far. Thanks for all your feedback, insights and experience you have with the camera now. I will pass your feedback on.
For all who are still waiting for the update, It is going out in waves (like always) so you might still have to wait a bit. Sorry for that
A public change-log or a detailed user manual / white paper regarding the camera app would be useful.- I miss the level indicator, but there is now audio in slow-motion videos, is the guesswork regarding electronic stabilization in videos correct (and is that a deliberate change or a mistake?), etc.
I can go on regarding missing features, or big and small app errors, but it would be more practical if the team handed a Nokia 8 to an in-house nerd and let her use the camera for a couple of days.- Also try ask a volunteer create a custom watermark that says Vacation In Paris and see how long it takes ;-)
The camera app is 'good enough' for my everyday use during the summer.
Regarding stability, the camera app lost access to the hardware 1 time, requiring a phone restart. There is so far 3 pictures incompletely saved (just a narrow strip at the top, the rest grey). This has never happened for me in the old HMD app.(The old app could crash, rarely, but it would only lose what it was doing, and never needed a restart of the phone to get going again).
Then there is the user interface, with the grid and the Pro control elements too small for a Hi-DPI screen and not designed for horizontal use. I even had to rotate the screenshot below since it was recorded sideways for some reason.
I have an serious problem after the update. I have the TA-1012. Since the update my phone freezes after making photos and then rebooting itself. I on vacation now and went to a phone store and they did confirm there are isssues, THe day after he couldn find that info anymore. I have used several channels from Nokia for assistance no help at all. At Twitter not even an answer. I'm verry unhappy with this. So please confirm this issue of give help.. People on vacation generally makes pictures so you understand how musch of an problem this is. And yes i did een hard reset (factory).
Lets face it,
in comparison with other mid-range phones Nokia has the worst Camera ever.
And there is no App that will make this better.
Noise and Sharpness, especially in low light are crap. Its a Hardware Problem (Sensor, Lenses) and not a Software Problem.
Regarding the audio 'tics' in videos, on closer inspection some of my old recordings have the same.
After further testing my guess is a thermal issue = mechanical parts inside the phone moving around as the components warm up. The microphones are very sensitive to both audio and mechanical disturbance.
I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to switch from picture mode to video. There are two dots at the bottom of the screen implying horizontally scrollable panels. Turns out you just can't swipe anywhere near the dots.
camera go greenish when pointed and to a yellow wall??? The photo also turn out greenish, Weird.
As I said in one of my earlier posts, thanks for all your feedback and I will pass it on to the important people . I’m sure your recommendations and wishes will be taken into account in upcoming updates.
Have a nice day and best regards,
Amber isn't saying sorry, it is a figure of speech.
So please be realistic, she can't make specific promises, nor magically fix the app overnight, and getting angry/aggressive about the situation - e.g. by trying to embarrass the CEO on Twitter is unlikely to help things.
That said, it does concern me that Laura's post doesn't seem to acknowledge the high level of dissatisfaction that some of us are experiencing, and I would like to see her respond again, ideally along the following lines:
1) to stop the rollout of the firmware immediately as it's clearly NOT ready for prime time
2) to give advice (to those who wish they hadn't installed the firmware) on how to roll back OR to make the old camera app available to be installed over the top so that nobody is worse off than they were before
3) to reassure us that revisions to the camera app will be tested much more thoroughly before being released to us, ideally by using the beta testing channels that exist and issuing a changelog for each release so that we will know exactly what issues have been fixed, which will help us all manage our expectations and provide more useful feedback
