Canon EF Mount on Nokia N8 (and sample recording)

I was mulling whether to post this in the Hacks/DIY or Mobile forums but Lens seemed most appropriate.

It’s just a proof of concept, his mount is made of cardboard, rubber bands and the screw cap of the lens is what’s used to attach it. At the end of the video, you can see some samples and they look pretty good. I’m liking that effect of manually focusing in and out during video to change between foreground and background subjects when you have a lens like a 50mm 1.8 or similar that have narrow depths of field. The N8 of course is designed to have a very wide depth of field.
