We notify you free of charge about new tests on the topic of: Camera Phones. Your e-mail address:

Nearly every new mobile phone is equipped with a digital camera of some sort.

'Camera phones' have now developed to offer resolutions in the megapixel range and so have exceeded the sub webcam quality they were known for when first introduced. In the beginning this low quality led to the phones being thought of as simply something for the kids, a snapshot-taker producing pictures that were fine when viewed on a small mobile phone screen but which were useless for anything else.

New models have incorporated autofocus and white balance and even flash bulbs to allow for use in low light conditions. Some phones also take the low light philosophy to new levels by building in an LED light to help in such situations which can double as a torch.

Many manufacturers also include simple picture editing software on phones, this allows people to take a photo, alter it or add a frame and send it on as an MMS. Some also come with a small mirror next to the lens to aid in self portraiture.

The original impetus behind developing cameras small enough to be installed into a mobile phone however, was the dream of the video phone. Many cameras allow video to be captured and sent, but it is only the 3G network that offers enough bandwidth to make or receive a full duplex video call.

At the moment though, the camera phone remains something of a paradox, not really good enough for any serious photography but quality too high to be disregarded as a mere toy.
