Nokia N8 aerial photo thumb

Best Nokia N8 pictures ever

We all know that the Nokia N8 is an amazing piece of technology, but who on earth would have thought pictures could be taken like the ones you will see below. Technology has come a long way in recent years and the Nokia N8 is valid proof of that and even if it wasn’t, these pictures will prove otherwise. Believe it or not, the images you see below are all taken on the mobile phone that we have all come to love – the powerful, the marvellous, the Nokia N8.

The images were captured by a seemingly very talented photographer named Jason Hawkes, who has captured these images from beauty spots in England. The pictures are truly stunning, something we never thought imaginable on the mere mobile phone – these images will probably come as a shock to many people, i know it was a massive shock for me personally – THEY’RE TAKEN ON A MOBILE PHONE!

Jason is accustomed to a heavy camera bag with super-long lenses, however he swapped it out for a Nokia N8 and took these specialist aerial shots via a helicopter. The images were taken in England, in particular Hampshire, Isle of White, Dorset, Devon, Cornwall and even London – who would of thought that this country would have such beautiful scenes – not me.

This image is from The Eden project, Blackpool Pleasure Beach. Jason states on his website that ‘my camera bag now fits in my pocket’, adding: ‘My main attraction to this project was they always say the best camera you have is the camera you have on you all the time’ – he’s definitely right there. This is the main reason photography lovers are buying the Nokia N8, because it created outstanding pictures such as these. He goes on to add: ‘I don’t normally carry around my kit, it is very big and bulky, but I always carry around a phone, and this phone happens to have a 12-meg camera on the back of it, which is amazing.’

‘On the way here this morning, I saw one of the campaigns out at the minute that’s shot on the N8, and it’s blown up to a 78-sheet poster which is just enormous, and it just looks absolutely spectacular.

‘By its very nature, aerial photography is difficult to do so we are pushing the limits of this camera as far as we can go, so that is why I am really excited to be working on it.’

If you were able to have the chance to hop into a helicopter and take some amazing aerial photographs just like Jason has, what would you be taking pictures of and why? I know i for one will be in a helicopter somewhere hot, with nice beaches and the odd volcano or two if i’m lucky – why not, eh?
