If you are a wireless broadband user, you might come across the following situation when you want to share the broadband connection to more than 1 device. Most of the wireless broadband modems in the market allow you to make connection from only one device at one time. So if you want to access the same wireless broadband service on 2 or more devices, you’ll need unplug the modem from one device then plug it to another. This is quite inconvenient especially when you need to switch between the devices regularly.
Maxis WiFi Modem (E5832) is designed to solve the above problem by allowing you to share the wireless broadband through WiFi connection to up to 5 devices simultaneously. The modem is very easy to operate, let me show you in the video below :-

After more than 2 weeks from preparation to post production, my entry for #N8Productions has finally completed. It is a stop motion video that I named it as Naughty Toys.
This 3-minute video took me more than 30 hours of photo & video shooting, a consecutive 7 days of 5 hours shooting daily. It took another 30 hours of tedious post production such as arranging the photos, video editing, sounds editing, dubbing the voices of all 8 characters, etc. A total of more than 650 photos and 20 minutes of short videos were taken to create the stop motion video.
I personally need to thank my good friend, Alex Tye, for allowing me to use his precious figures for shooting and his room as shooting venue. Another friend of mine, Jensen Woo, was very kind too to lend me some Transformers figures for practice before the shooting session. This video won’t be completed without them.
If you like the video, please feel free to visit N8 Producers page and click the “like” button to support this video.
Thanks you so much!
I come across this video shot by Nokia N8 and was very impressed with the video quality. The objects like trees are correctly and sharply focused at close-up. You gotta view the video at 720p to see how clear and astonishing it is.
After viewing it, I was wondering how could possibly such high quality video be produced by a smartphone. It turns out that some tweaks were needed and the creator of this video revealed his tricks in the following video :-
