After yesterday’s Nokia N8 photo compression hack and 30fps silky-smooth video mod, now arch-tinkerer hyperX has outed another tweak to the Symbian^3 smartphone’s optics. He’s added an option to support continuous auto-focus during video recording, keeping footage crisp even as your subject moves around.

Interestingly, he’s also confirmed that the mods so far don’t actually require flashing a new firmware to the N8, which suggests installing them might be a little more user-friendly than we thought. Here’s hoping we see some sort of general release coming soon; after all, availability of the N8 is set to explode midway through this month.
