With a camera that shoots stills at five megapixels, things might appear to be on the up for the Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type. An LED flash helps out with low-light indoor shots, and Nokia touts noise reduction as one of the camera's selling points. You can tap the screen to call up controls such as switching between stills and video shooting, which is nice.
INDOORS: In a brightly lit railway station this photo is pretty good. Yes, it's a bit noisy, but it's passable
DETAIL: Focus in the central area of this photo is fine, but at the edges the camera has lost the plot rather
LANDSCAPE: The wide angle on this vista is nice, but again there's some noise detracting from the overall quality of the photo
ZOOM: A full 4x digital zoom shot taken from the same place as the vista shows up very well that digital zoom should be avoided at all costs
EFFECTS: We thought we'd try out the effects on the Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type. This is the standard shot
These are the sepia, black and white and negative effects, each of which works rather nicely.
