The 8MP camera is an area in which the Nokia E6 excels when compared with the 5MP offering from the BlackBerry Bold 9780 and BlackBerry Bold 9900. In addition to this, neither of the BlackBerry offerings incorporate a front camera or video call functionality.
The Nokia E6 camera provides 2x digital zoom, 28mm focal zoom, an f-stop/aperture of f/2.4 and resolution up to 3264 x 2448.
Whereas some phones, such as the Apple iPhone 4, provide an onscreen tap-to-focus function, the Nokia E6 relies on fixed autofocus via an onscreen shutter button.
PORTRAIT: Face recognition works well in portrait mode
MINIMUM: This was taken in Landscape mode with the minimum zoom. Colours are fairly good and the image is clear
MAXIMUM: The maximum zoom in landscape mode goes in close and retains good colour
NIGHT FLASHER: Night Mode with flash produces a reasonably well-lit image
DEEP DARK NIGHT: Night Mode without flash shows next to nothing
AUTO: Night Portrait with auto flash produces a very similar picture to the manual flash
One of the biggest indicators that the Nokia E6 is aimed directly at the business market is the removal of a physical Camera button and its replacement with a Dictaphone/Voice Command button.
Once your images are captured, the Nokia C6 has a picture editing app pre-loaded, capable of fairly extensive editing including rotating, resizing, cropping, colour, sharpness and brightness adjustments and red eye removal.
It also offers the opportunity to add clipart, speech bubbles, stamps and "funny effects", which most business users will obviously find...essential.
