    Re: Cameraphones

    Neil, thanks, it does ok but has zero options, I cannot even silence the shutter unless I silence the phone! Also, the filter covering the lens is flush with the back and has no other cover, vulnerable to scratches, fingerprints and all that

    Re: Cameraphones

    wow, the google phone does not bad! very sharp image. Was the image post processed on a pc Lili?

    With regards to silencing the shutter. At least when you do set the phone to silent it silences the shutter sounds, but for some, even this does not silence the shutter.

    that is one good thing about the nokia N93. It has a dedicated lens cap that covers the optics. But in saying that there is secondary protection like you googlephone whereby there i a glass filter in front of the actual lens.

    Also with a dedicated lens cap there is a higher chance if losing the lens cap lol

    Mazor, there are no image controls on the G1, so every image is in color. I post processed in Silkypix, removing color, bumping contrast up a tiny bit (shooting through a windshield one loses some sparkle). Thank you though, the camera phone is demanding, there is a long shutter lag so one must hold perfectly still till the image on the lcd clears

    Nice rawfa, very smooth colors indeed. N95 definitely has got something going here with CZ optics and coatings on lens.

    Thanks, guys. I have to say I've never imagined a cell phone could go this far. I'm not planing to replace my cameras anytime soon, but it's nice to know what you have in an emergency.

    I've read somewhere that sony (?) was coming up with a phone that could shoot hd movies. It's amazing how fast things evolve these days. These are good days to be a nerd

    To be honest mine has all these things but I rarely use them all. I do use video a lot when I'm traveling though.

    Cell phones in Europe and Asia are more advanced than what is available in the US. The trend in Europe now is to go with a cheap, throw-away phone and buy your minutes monthly, or however those temp cell phone services work. Sales of those phones now outnumbers sales of normal cell phones with cameras, mp3, microwave-CB radio-garbage disposal combo, GPS ...

    In Japan the trend is toward phones with fewer features, cheaper and easier to use. Folks say the cell phones are too difficult to use, too many advanced features. No way Japan is going to accept a cell phone without a camera. And Japanese law requires the phone's camera to make a shutter sound so there are no sneaky pictures.
