Nokia Camera Headset (HS-1C) - Mobile Accessories Nokia Camera Headset (HS-1C)

06 January 2003
Written By Kinny Cheng

Sales package (should contain):
  • 1 x Nokia Camera Headset unit
  • 1 x detachable headset part
  • 1 x user manual

The Nokia HS-1C is the first detachable mobile camera for the companyís new range of colour-screen mobile handsets equipped with the Pop-Port data interface. In addition to providing basic photography capabilities, the camera can also be used as a headset for phone calls or radio feature (if available) - therefore, being dubbed as the ďCamera HeadsetĒ.

Phones currently equipped with the Pop-Port interface (6100/6610/7210) also come with the ability to send and receive multimedia (MMS) messages. This means that pictures taken with the Camera Headset can be sent off to family and friends who may have MMS-compatible phones or to their email inbox instead (where the picture will appear as an email attachment)!

Practicality and styling

The Nokia Camera Headset is encased in a silvery-gold casing, along with the two black parts at both ends of the unit and the small silver shutter button. A thick black cable leads from the actual camera device and ends with the Pop-Port plug, which can be attached to any compatible Nokia phone that comes with this interface. Its overall styling is to suit any future Nokia model that is made to be compatible.

If youíre looking at the device and wondering how a picture can be taken, itís most probably because you havenít opened up the lens cover - which protects it from the elements whilst not in use. To open the cover and activate the camera, hold both ends of the device and pull in the opposite direction. The viewfinder and camera lens will be revealed, while a green LED is located on the opposite side indicating different camera operations. And if youíre confused as to which side you should look through, itís the side with the viewfinder and green LED where the shutter button is on the right.

Once you are finished taking pictures, close the lens cover by pushing the device together, which also switches off the camera. Power for the camera is obtained from the phone that it is connected to via the Pop-Port cable.

Should you want the ability to use the headset feature as well, simply plug the detachable headset part into the top section of the camera device and twist the adaptor in a clockwise direction, securing the actual cable.

A cable length adjuster device is situated between the answer/end button and the two headsets, allowing its user to wear the headset around their neck and set a comfortable length for both the earplugs and camera device so that they sit in place nicely. The camera device also features a fixed clip that its user can attach onto their shirt.

And finally, if you donít want to wear the headset around your neck (even though it may get a bit clumsy at times!), simply pull apart the cable length adjuster device by holding both sides and bending it. If you decide otherwise, hold both sides of the cable length adjuster beside each other and push them in together. Yes, itís that simpleÖ :)
