Vlog like a pro with the Nokia 8

Take storytelling to a new level with Nokia 8’s Dual-Sight camera technology for even better vlogs

Vlogging or video blogging is redefining how users relate to their smartphones. With Filipinos now spending an average of 6.35 hours a week watching online videos, the fourth-highest average online viewing time per week next to India (7.12 hours), Singapore (6.62 hours) and the US (6.58 hours) according to a recent Limelight Networks report, videos are definitely a primary online content. YouTube currently ranks fourth among the online content consumed by Filipinos, and monthly active YouTube users in the country are forecast to hit 33.55 million by 2020.

Some local vloggers have created a following in the different fields such as beauty and fashion, music, lifestyle, travel, and entertainment. Several even earn money from their video blogs.

Vlogging is not only about sharing personal experiences or ideas about an issue or topic through an online video but is also about engaging a target viewer base. But what exactly are the secrets to a good and engaging vlog? Besides relatable content and creative inspiration, it pays to have the right video equipment, post-production software and online platforms.

Unique content does not always sell—unique content with a well-established style does. The video storytelling style can be naturally based on one’s personality, humorous such as when poking fun at current trends or straightforward, even brutally honest as when discussing issues or providing tips. Video bloggers can experiment in the videography, video editing and music.

Having the right equipment is particularly crucial in delivering great video content. Nokia smartphones can now be used to create outstanding videos and post these immediately for sharing with family and friends.

Nokia 8’s Dual-Sight camera technology uses two 13MP cameras with ZEISS optics for high-quality imaging and video. The cameras have dual-tone flash and f/2.0 aperture for better photos in low-light conditions. The video resolutions supported are 4K and 1080p at 30fps. Complement videos with strong audio using the Nokia 8’s OZO AUDIO technology. Capture moments with spatial 360 recording, the same technology used by Hollywood film experts. Vloggers can highlight certain sounds while reducing background noise using the Audio Focus mode.

The smartphone runs on a Li-ion 3090mAh battery, which promises long battery life for non-stop video recording. Wi-Fi smartphone allows vloggers to post videos as and when or where they please.
