With an 8MP camera on board, the Nokia X7 clearly doesn't have the N8's capabilities, but 8MP is still a lot in smartphone terms.
Nokia boosts this with 720p video recording, and a good double-strength LED light that sheds more light than usual on indoor scenes.
Still, we're upset at the lack of twiddles and tweaks in the camera settings, which means you can't have a huge amount of fun with pictures.
There's no front camera on the Nokia X7, either. We'd have liked one even though we don't use them very often - but if not having one keeps the cost down, we're fine with that.
Because the camera button is on a curved edge and fitted flush, you can neither see it when you're framing a photo nor feel it easily with a finger. So tapping to shoot is a bit of a trial and error activity until you get a feel for where the button is.
There is some fairly nifty image editing software on board that you can use to play with your photos after you've taken them. This includes a big range of different filters.
NORMAL: The Nokia X7 captures a fairly good still image but you don't have to zoom in very far to get fuzzing
SEPIA: The sepia filter does a fairly neat job
BLACK-AND-WHITE: Black-and-white shots are another of the relatively few shooting modes on offer
VIBRANT: Probably the best shooting mode is Vibrant – this lifts the colours a tad above their normal shades
INDOORS: Indoor normal shooting mode is a bit washed out
FLOURESCENT: But switch on the fluorescent white balance mode and things don't improve
