What to Look for in a Camera Phone


Camera phones have become commonplace.  Any event or special occasion you attend, you are bound to see people snapping pictures on their cell phone.  For the casual user, it seems that many people use their phone for taking most of their photographs.  But with so many options out there, it is hard to know what features matter most when looking to buy a new camera phone.

When you are looking to buy a camera phone, there are two big things to consider: flexibility in downloading your images and photo quality.  Some of the newest high-end camera phones take pictures that are of good enough quality to print.  The images are no where near as quality as a dedicated camera will give you, but they are perfect for snapshots, and also make transferring photos to your PC very user-friendly.

For taking pictures on the go, 1-megapixel models work well, and are the most common.  2-megapixel camera phones take photos you can more readily print and frame, but they are more expensive, and harder to find.  It is also good to have a camera phone with settings to improve image quality.  Most have a “fine” or “superfine” setting, but usually you have to activate those settings yourself.

A few camera phones have an auto-focus feature, which also helps to improve picture quality, but most are fixed-focus. Despite the many advances in camera phone technology, most have flashes are so weak that they reach only 3-6 feet, if they have a flash at all.
