Nokia C5-03 review: Camera
Zoomed in pictures are blurred, non-zoomed pictures are rather pixelated, but this isn't billed as a macro shot phone. Also, inexplicably, gone is the LED flash inbuilt into the previous model. The shot quality therefore is middling and you'd perhaps expect a little more from a phone costing close to £200.
Sadly there's no built-in camera shortcut button, which may hinder those quick-snap Twitpics, but once you're into the camera mode, there's a decent amount to play with pre-shot, including ISO, white balance and exposure, and a chance to make up for the lack of Instagram by engaging the sepia tones.
For those who don't want to mess around with ISO or white balance, there are pre-installed modes, including night, portrait and sports.
DAY SHOT: No zoom, fruit tea – colour is beautiful and true to life
NIGHT MODE: Knitting – without zoom the picture is detailed and withstands being ported to a bigger screen via Twitpic without too much blurring
INDOORS: Picture taken indoors in average light – you get a grainy but decently detailed picture
ZOOM: The 4x digital zoom results in a blurred photo and lack of detail
