To open the camera, press the camera key.

When taking a photo:

  • Use both hands to keep the camera steady.

  • When you zoom in, the photo quality may degrade.

  • You can add a photo to a contact in your contacts list. After taking a photo, select Options icon > Use image > Assign to contact. Move the frame to crop the photo, tap the screen to show the toolbar, select Done icon, then select the contact and Done icon.

  • If you don't use the camera for about a minute, it goes to sleep. To wake the camera up, press the camera key briefly.

Keep a safe distance when using the flash. Do not use the flash on people or animals at close range. Do not cover the flash while taking a photo.

When recording a video:

  • For best results, close any open applications before recording.

  • Record to your phone mass memory, if possible.

  • If recording videos to a memory card, for best performance, use a compatible, fast, high-quality microSD card. The recommended microSD card class is 4 (32 Mbit/s (4 MB/s)) or higher.

    Before first use, back up any important data on the card, and use the phone to format the card, even if the card has previously been formatted or used in a Nokia phone. Formatting deletes everything on the card.

    If the performance of the memory card degrades over time, back up any important content on the card, and use the phone to format the card.
