Nokia C6-01 Review: Camera (Photo Heavy)
The Nokia C6-01 is one of our favourite little smartphones, offering an excellent range of features in a compact and well made package. One of its features is an 8-Megapixel camera, which we’ve been putting to the test. Join us after the cut to find out how we got on…
As with other Nokia smartphones, there’s a button on the side of the Nokia C6-01 that acts as a shutter for the camera. Press it, and the camera will start up. Press it again, and it’ll take a photograph – it really is that simple. You can also take photographs by tapping the screen – which comes in a lot more useful if you’re having trouble holding the phone steady.
The Nokia C6-01 features an 8-Megapixel sensor and full focus technology, which offers the ability to keep everything in the photograph in sharp focus.
One of the best bit about full focus cameras on Nokia smartphones like the Nokia C6-01, is that there’s no lag between pressing the button and taking the photo. You don’t have to wait for your Nokia to focus – simply tap the screen or shutter button, and the photograph is taken near instantly.
We were impressed by the quality of colours in our Nokia C6-01 photographs – as despite the weather being poor, and lighting less than ideal, images looked vivid and bright. They also appeared very true to life, with little sign of over saturation.
Most of the details in our photographs proved to be sharp, although some detail is lost to post processing when cropped in at 100 per cent. That said, photographs look more than good enough when viewed on a monitor at anything under 50 per cent, and they’re also sharp and detailed enough to be printed off on a sheet of A4 photo paper.
We’ll be bringing you more Nokia C6-01 photographs in the next week, so check back here to see how it gets on in brighter conditions, and what the flash is like to use.
