Nokia 808 - Camera Shutter Timer

Hi I am an avid photographer and bought this phone a few days ago.


So far the images are quite good in quality. I am still waiting for Nokia accessory for Camera Tripod Mount to arrive in my country, Malaysia.


Some feedback for you Nokia guys, it will be nice to have a Camera Shutter Timer so that the photographer can be part of a group photo as well don't you think?


Looking forward to software updates on the Camera app soon.

Hi steveboey,


Thank you for your post and welcome to the forum!


You should have the timer feature on your phone already, so it is not necessary to wait for an update. You can set your Nokia 808 to use self-timer by pressing settings icon on the top of the screen and selecting Creative > Capture mode > Self-timer. When the self-timer mode is on, the phone will make a ticking sound to indicate when the photo will be taken. 


Hope this helps,
