In 2010, a 3.2-megapixel camera isn't much to shout about. However, in practice, the camera, which also offers up autofocus, flash, 2.5x digital zoom and video recording, is more than adequate for the job and incredibly easy to use.
It also works well with the other tools on the handset and offers plenty of options for photo quality and size, effects and geotagging of your snaps. Shortcut keys on the side of the handset also make it easy to capture that moment quickly and easily too.
OUTDOORS: Images are more than acceptable, capturing a typical street shot here with all the detail you would hope.
OUTDOOR CLOSE-UP: Alternatively, check out this outdoor close-up of some flowers. Again, it's not anywhere near SLR quality, but it is more than acceptable for a mobile camera.
INDOORS: This isn't quite so sharp, even on a very bright day. But the image is clear, there's no blurring and the colours are reasonably true.
EFFECTS: As ever, an effect can hide a multitude of sins and the Sepia filter, used to capture the same area, does produce a good quality indoor snap.
Video is surprising good, with this film of a local traffic junction impressing both visually and audibly in light of our low expectations. Again, no substitute for a dedicated video camera, but for producing clips for the web, it's hard to criticise.
Sharing images is very easy too, with apps for the main photo sites, the option to email or MMS your snaps, as well as transfer to social networks, all at various sizes and image qualities, dependent on your needs. Just a click of a button brings up a thumbnail gallery too.
