Taking pictures with CameraPro seems to
be slower than with the built-in camera
CameraPro processes images in
background, so you can capture more
images directly after taking a picture. But
CameraPro provides 100% quality (=raw
jpeg) by default which results in up to 5
times larger image sizes (like 10 MB
instead of 2 MB). Thus sometimes
CameraPro can be a little bit slower than
the built in camera when taking pictures
with 100% quality..
Does CameraPro hack or alter the camera
firmware in any way?.
No, CameraPro is a stand-alone application
which provides the same, or even better,
quality and features as some hacks (e.g.
HyperX) available but without altering the
camera firmware nor the built-in camera
How can I take pictures in 16:9 format?

How can I record videos?.
To switch to video mode goto the
"Camera Mode" menu item and select
"Video mode". Video recording is started
with the same buttons as used for image
The display has short hangs and/or the
video framerate varies for 1280x720
video at 30 fps!.
The Nokia N8 official maximum recording
settings are 1280x720 at 25 fps. With the
current firmware 30fps overload the N8's
CPU which causes stuttering..
What are recommended settings for the
Video Expert Mode?.
In general the video expert mode is for
experimentation and many setting
combinations will not work. A sample
setting that works on all Symbian^3
phones is the following:.
- Video type: video/H264; profile=42801F
- Frame size: 1280 x 720
- Custom width/height: 0
- Frame rate: 30
- Video bit rate: 3000000
- Audio type: AAC
- Audio bitrate: 48000.
The most critical parameter is the frame
size. It is recommended to use the default
sizes (default sizes are used when custom
width/height are set
Recommended codecs are (audio codec in
- h264: 42801E, 42801F (AAC)
- mp4: profile 4, 3, 2 (AAC)
- 3gp: video/H263-2000 (AMR)
