2Sony Ericsson C905
The C905 Cybershot comes with 8.1 megapixels, pushing the quality of the cell phone camera close to a compact digital camera. The C905 offers a 16x digital zoom, built-in Xenon flash and autofocus. The Cyber-shot action mode takes seven rapid-fire pictures as soon as you press the button. Smart Contrast balances light and color and face detection helps you focus on people.
Working with Kodak’s imaging technology, Motorola has produced a 5-megapixel camera for its Motozine ZN5 cell phone. The device comes with autofocus, low-light optimization and a bright Xenon flash.Unlike many digital cameras there is little to no shutter lag with the autofocus feature locking in less than one second with no delays when firing off the next shot.
5Sony Ericsson K850i
Another 5-megapixel camera that takes excellent photos. Like other Nokia N multimedia phones, the N79 features a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens, a dual LED flash and up to 20x digital zoom. Users can choose from eight shooting modes and five quality settings. Brightness, contrast, color tone and ISO light sensitivity can all be adjusted for better pictures.
7BlackBerry Storm 9500
The Incite sports a 3-megapixel camera with autofocus. A panorama setting allows users to take multiple shots that the device then edits into one picture. In action mode, the Incite takes a continuous series of three or more shots in rapid succession. As one review noted, the Incite is an acceptable camera for “taking snapshots at impromptu moments.”
Yes, it’s a very cool cell phone but as a camera the iPhone is pedestrian at best. It features 2 megapixels but very little else.
