5 Very capable camera phoneBashimitsu | 03/05/2007 | See all Bashimitsu's reviews (61)Top 100 Reviewer Top 10 Games Reviewer Top 10 Electronics Reviewer Top 100 Gadgets Reviewer Top 10 Mobile Reviewer The K800i is probably the first phone I've used that actually has a half decent camera. The camera in question is 3.2 megapixel but don't always just assume that more megapixels are better: a large part of what makes a camera any good is its image sensor, in other words the microchip that converts the image into a digital signal that can then be electronically recorded. Sure the lens and the amount of megapixels are important but without decent electronics the pictures will still look rubbish.Sony have brought their digital camera expertise to the K800i and the pictures will look shockingly good for anyone that is used to taking pics on a phone. The quality is comparable to a fairly good camera from a few years ago - I know that sounds like anything but high praise but it's comparative, realistic and given the state of most phonecameras I'd say was very high praise indeed.The camera function actually works a lot like other Cybershots in that it can be activated simply by sliding down the cover. This is great for taking fast snaps but could be prone to sliding open and consuming your battery whilst in your pocket. You can take pictures by either using the joystick or with a dedicated camera button on the phone's side. The advantage to using the dedicated button is that you can set the focus more accurately by pressing lightly, waiting for the bleep then pressing all the way to get a perfectly focused shot.The flash is fairly decent and much better than those LED-style ones but it can give your subjects a slightly blue-ish hue. You can edit your photos onboard the camera and remove red-eye, add effects such as sepia and negative and crop them. The LCD screen is very bright and clear and is ideal for framing and viewing shots.The camera also has red-eye reduction and steadyshot so taking pictures in low light is vastly improved on the majority of other camera phones.As a phone the K800i performs very well with great call quality, clear ringtones and a very attractive user interface. The games may be network dependant but mine came with a brilliant crazy golf game and a superb looking (but difficult) tennis one.The K800i is a brilliant camera phone and if that's what you're looking for then you should really try one out. I think you'll be impressed with the photos and at this price it's a bit of a steal!
