Default Pics made with cellphone

I cannot believe that the next-generation of cellphones can create pictures that good. These pictures were made with a Samsung SCH-V420 a 1megapixel camera phone. I'm really amazed. The pictures shown blow are shown in different sizes.













I found these pictures on a cellphone forum.

Whlie they are by no means a DSLR pictures, they are still pretty amazing to come from a cell phone. It seems like every 5 years or so, technology from 5 years ago is remade into something tiny. Like the Palm computers are about as fast as PCs 5 years ago. Amazing how fast technology is going

Of course a cellphone can never replace a real digicam. Or maybe a digicam with build-in cellphone lol. But such a phone is great for parties and for those moments when you don't have a digicam with you.

Pics in low-light conditions. They are cropped or resized.

They don't get even close to my point-and-shoot digital camera but heck! Mine is 3 MP and has much bigger lense. They pretty amazing anyway considering they come from a cell phone. I guess their problem is their tiny lens.

Most images captured at VGA resolution will look OK on average picture monitors, you only need 1 Mpix! But try cropping and printing to 10X8 or even 6X4. Don't these low res. pics cost as much to send over a network as a hard copy print? VOX

Bloodstrike,

I wouldn't sneeze at 1 MP, two years ago 1 MP was the cat's meow for many people. The only drawback I can see would be the lens. Although the small size of the lens shouldn't necessarily be a serious a downer. I once owned a 2 MP HP315 which had a tiny lens and was pooh poohed by a lot of folks. I was able to get some wonderful pictures from it.

Yes, it impressive how far those cell cameras have come.

The quality is pretty amazing to me, for how small these cameras are on cell phones. I would love to be able to always have a camera with me for those odd moments where you wish you had a camera. I have even toyed with the idea of buying a cheap digital camera to leave in the glove box of my truck. But so far I have not found one that takes decent images. And I wouldn't use a cell phone enough to justify buying one of the camera ones.
