This is Mission are working with Nokia on an innovative campaign by photographing some of Britain’s most famous and unusual landscapes using an N8, "the world’s best camera phone," and the expertise of world-renowned aerial photographer Jason Hawkes.
The aerial photographs will offer a unique perspective of Britain’s topography and include landscapes shot entirely on the N8, which boasts a 12-megapixel camera. The cross-country journey will also be filmed in HD on the handset- a world’s first.
Hawkes, who has over 20 years experience in aerial photography, will take the pictures over the full length of Britain. The entire process will be documented and fans can follow the action in real time through Twitter all the finished images will available to view on www.facebook.com/nokia.uk and www.flickr.com/groups/nokian8
Jason Hawkes said: “My main attraction to this project was they say that the best camera you have is the one you have on you. I don’t always have my camera equipment with me but I always have my mobile and the N8 has a 12-megapixel camera with truly amazing image quality. By its very nature aerial photography is very difficult to do, so we’re pushing the limits of this camera as far as we can go.”
Nokia: "With a 12 megapixel camera, Carl Zeiss optics, Xenon flash and a large sensor that rivals those found in compact digital cameras - the Nokia N8 enables budding photographers to capture the moment in stunning detail. In addition cameramen or women can record HD-quality videos and edit them using a unique, built-in editing suite. It also has 16GB of built in storage space, expandable up to 48GB with a Micro SD card – ideal for storing and moving pictures on the go."
