Nokia C2-01 review: Camera

Nokia c2 01

The camera on the Nokia C2-01 is a basic 3.2-megapixel module with no flash. There's no side button for a really quick launch and snap, though you can put a shortcut on the main screen if you want to.

It actually does a fairly decent job where stills are concerned, if you are happy to live within its boundaries. There's no tapping to autofocus, no special shooting modes for night, sports, smiling people and the like, and no macro mode. This really is point-and-click territory.

OUTDOORS: For standard point and shoot stuff the camera does a decent enough job

CLOSE-UP: Up close, you can get a fair bit of detail, but don't expect macro mode focussing – it's not an option

INDOORS: As long as indoor scenes are well lit, you can take a decent photo. This one was shot through glass

NORMAL: There are lots of shooting effects, and this is where the fun kicks in. This one is normal mode

FALSE COLOURS: The false colours setting can produce some interesting oddities. These flowers are fun

NEGATIVE: The jollity continues with a negative image which gives an interesting overall effect

SOLARISE: Solarise adds yet another different take to a photo and can be used to good effect
