Amazing aerial photos shot with a mobile-phone

It's hard to believe these stunning image of Britain were not taken with a high-end camera, in fact they were taken with just a humble mobile phone… and a helicopter.

In a bid to show off the photographic capabilities of their latest phone, Nokia commissioned aerial photographer Jason Hawkes to do his stuff using the N8 handset.

Leaving his usual DSLR and array of lenses at home, Hawkes took to the skies above Hampshire, Isle of White, Dorset, Devon, Cornwall, and London armed with the 12MP cameraphone.

And the results are impressive, they're better than any photos we've taken with a mobile phone… his thumb is not in any of them for one thing.

Speaking of the Nokia HD Horizons project, Hawkes said: "My main attraction to this project was that they always say the best camera you have is the camera you have on you.

"I don't normally carry around my kit as it's very big and bulky, but I always carry around a phone.

"By it's very nature aerial photography is difficult to do so we are pushing the limits of this camera as far as we can go.

"The mail challenge to me is that it's a relatively wide angle lens. 28mm, because of that you have to think about rally big locations around Britain."
