"No live effect of shutter speed slider on viewfinder "
I dont think thats a bug. How can you expect a phone to show you how the picture will look like if you "physically" let the shutter open for longer?
it can show you ISO because ISO is just adding brightness digitally while sacrificing sharpness.
With shutter sound enabled, a loud audio 'blip' is recorded at the beginning of each video clip.
- Can you guys confirm this, or is it only my phone misbehaving?
(It sound as the last half of the default shutter sound).
In a few hours testing, it seems most of the unique Nokia 8 dual-camera features in full auto mode regarding automatic scene mode selection and its artificial intelligence in still image processing has been disabled?
Also in full auto mode:
Focus hunting and takes photos before focusing is done. I prefer to use the volume buttons as shutter, and it used to work. Especially the autofocus in low light and close-ups is now unpredictable.
Low light performance in video mode is poor.
I'm not sure whether OIS is missing, yet. (The field of view in video mode was smaller than photo mode in the old app too).
- How can I test this?
The UI repeats the mistakes from long ago in Nokia 6:
The settings is split for no apparent reason, with the video resolution settings only available when the camera is in video mode.
Encouraging the user to record photos and videos vertically. This spoils not only the videos, but in Nokia 8 also the OZO audio recording.
Swipe to toggle between photo and video mode is clumsy and not logical. There is plenty of space for a button.
Have a quarter of the viewfinder dimmed by grey menu overlay is not smart when taking pictures and videos in 16:9 format and holding the phone properly.
Freeloader well I m not an expert in designing android app but I use a third party app called 'manual camera' which shows the live effect of shutter control so that is why I asked about this feature.
> And yes the blip sound is recorded in the video
Thanks for confirmation, I considered a factory reset of the phone.
I'll try find some positive changes during the weekend (and more bugs, probably...)
I still don't have the new camer app, but I by reading to your comments, I am not sure I really want it. By the way, I am sure you can't just "disable" OIS. Optical stabilization is a physical mechanism added to the lens to stabilize it against the movement of the phone in your hands, it can't (couldn't?) be disabled by software. Simply, if a lens has OIS, it is always stabilized, in photos and video, you want it or not.
The real question is : Will it be fixed or is it all we got?? I mean like they took so much time to work on it so its the final update for nokia 8
