Why you can trust TechRadar
The Nokia C5 has a surprisingly fully-featured camera considering it's only and 3.2-megapixel affair that would normally be on this type phone only as a courtesy.
There's an LED flash, which is good up to 1.5m, along with a variety of scene modes, including Lanscape, Sports and Night. You can also take panoramic photos and specify colour tone modes.
Light sensitivity modes can be adjusted, as can the white balance. The focus is handled by Extended Depth of Field (EDOF) technology, as featured on the Palm Pre Plus. There's a 4x digital zoom for those brave enough to try it with a 3MP snapper.
You can record video at VGA resolution at up to 15 frames per second in either the standard mobile phone 3GPP format or MPEG-4. The flash can be forced on for whatever it is you're videoing in the dark. Hey, we don't judge.
FURRY: There's quite good detail levels in the bark and the capybara's fur with the camera adjusting exposure for the shadow, but the detail at the top is crushed by overexposure
DIGITAL ZOOM: The same animal from the same angle. The four times zoom comes close to turning him into pixel art at full size
NOISY: The bird statue has a nice three-dimensional quality, but the sky is riddled with digital noise
DETAIL: The foreground and background have a good amount of detail, but the middle is oddly lacking. The colours are accurate, though
VIGIL: The background is all sorts of blurred (even taking the overexposed sky into account), but the nice middle-level of light in the rest of the picture makes the lookout and his tree tower nice and clear
LANDSCAPE: Though it seems okay at first glance, there's actually very little detail in this landscape. Surely Brunel deserves better than this? Oddly, we had to take this photo twice before the auto white balance got it right
FLASH: The white balance is a little off using the flash. We're about 70cm away from Wall-E, but he's lit up fairly well. The flash drops of rapidly though – see the noise in the top-right corner
PANORAMA: This is a nice surrealist piece. It's not supposed to be, though (Click here for high-res version)
