Gallery: Quick 5MP Sample images from the Nokia X3-02 – excellent in good lighting…

| October 12, 2010 | Reply

The Nokia X3-02 Touch and Type has a fixed focus 5mp camera (no flash). I haven’t had a chance to properly test out the camera – these shots were mostly taken on the move (hence I’ve added to the blurring).

  • Pictures are captured with the camera button on the touch screen.
  • The camera takes photos very quickly. It then takes 1-2 seconds to process the photo and then you press back to take the next photo
  • Camera sound can be disabled
  • Digital zoom is smooth though not recommended to use.
  • Photos are taken in portrait. There is no autorotate if photos taken in landscape.
  • No autofocus means no macro.
  • In good lighting, the photos come out very nicely
  • In poor lighting, photos will suffer in quality
  • Video is not so hot. But I haven’t used this enough in different settings. To be fair, same thing with the camera.
  • Photo viewing on the device is surprisingly good – more on this in another post but for quicky: Excellent photo organization, thumbnails/swiping/date/album, great photo editor with many features and zoom within photo is very smooth.

This is the X3 in extreme low light.
