The Nokia Magnifier just got a new update! The new updated version of Nokia Magnifier exploits the auto-focus camera feature on many S60 devices such as the N96, N95, N95 8GB, N82, N73, E90, E71, E66, to enable you to easily enlarge hard-copy small print.
<blockquote>Nokia Magnifier application utilizes the existing camera functionality on your Nokia S60 phone. It can be used to improve readability in every-day life situations such as reading "fine print". Anyone who has difficulty seeing "fine print" or small objects can benefit from using this application readily available on their S60 phone. Nokia MagnifierÂ* has a built in stabilizer to reduce the effects of a shaky hand and negative filter enabling usersÂ* to switch from light to dark backgrounds improving readability. By using the existing camera technology, users can also snap a picture of the enhanced image for later reference.</blockquote>

* Position the the phone in front of the text you want to read (or whatever you want to magnify)
* Click OK button (phone's center key) to start focusing.
* If the application can't get a good focus, move the phone a little bit away from the object, and press OK again.
* Use the '#' (hash) key to turn stabilization mode on/off.
* Use the '0' (zero) key to turn contrast mode on/off.
* Use the '*' (asterisk) key to turn negative mode on/off. (the negative mode applies stabilization)
* Use the up/down keys to change the zoom factor.
* There are also menu options for these features.
