The LG Prada 3.0 has an 8MP camera with flash, which bodes well, on paper.
We found photos were OK but not fantastic, although our daytime test shooting was on a rather dull afternoon with little ambient light, and you may get better on brighter days.
The 1MP front-facing camera can also be used to shoot photos of you and your friends if you so choose.
Camera settings are all nicely arranged on the LG Prada 3.0's screen, and are very easy to use, with a sidebar on the left-hand short edge calling up individual settings on screen. It's nie and easy to fiddle about with settings you might not understand.
What surprises us, though, is that the camera itself lacks many settings in terms of filters and fun. If you want these, you'll need to switch out of the camera into the image editor, which enables you to apply these.
We prefer to apply them while framing and shooting a photo.
OUTDOORS: The LG Prada 3.0's camera doesn't seem to deal all that well with light and shade, though admittedly we were running our tests on a very dull afternoon.
BLUR: The compression used led to a real problem with definition on this tree, which has come out a something of a disappointing blur.
MACRO: There's no macro mode, but the camera did decide we wanted to focus on the snowdrops in this photo, and we were quite close to them. The focussing is acceptable.
NIGHT: At night, not surprisingly, the camera struggles.
