Tips for Great Camera Phone Photos

camera-phone-photosThese days it is hard to imagine a cellphone without a camera. We can find that some of the entry level cellphones are available with 1.3 and 2.0 megapixel camera resolution, whereas some of the hi-end phones  have resolutions like 3.2, 5.0, 8.0 and even 12 megapixel. Simply amazing! Those people who are still using cellphones with low megapixel camera may feel the urge to buy cellphones with high mega pixel.  Well, you can still use your low megapixel camera cellphone to take amazing photos. Here are some cool tips that will help you in taking perfect snap.

  • Get Close
    Taking images of sceneries, buildings or anything that is located a certain distance will only produce unclear images. Hence, with your low megapixel camera you should take snaps of things that are located close to you such as photos of your friends, candid photos, etc
  • Bright Light
    Whenever you take snap make sure the subject is lit up well. Taking snaps in rooms that are well illuminated. If your camera has flash, make use of it. You should position your subject in such a way that light falls on it properly and then you may take the snap.
  • Hold It Firmly
    Hold your cellphone firmly because many times it may happen, that after your press the camera button to take a photo, your cellphone may delay  taking the snap for a split second, which can ruin the impact
  • Framing the Subject
    You should make sure that the subject fills the camera; this can be done by getting close to the subject. It will allow you to get rid of unwanted noise and distraction that can ruin your photo.
  • Make Use of Camera Features
    Camera features like zoom, picture size,  night mode, photo mode such as black and white, sepia, negative, etc can help in improving the quality of the photos.  Do not zoom excessively; the resultant image will be blurred. Picture size such as large, medium and small will indicate the different resolutions of images the camera can take.
  • Edit Your Snaps
    Some cellphones have image editing tools that allow you to crop the unwanted parts from the photos. You can also adjust the brightness, apply border or give other effects to the image. If your cellphone does not have such features, you can transfer the image to your computer via Bluetooth or USB data cable and then use the image editing software on your computer to modify your images. The images can be then saved on your cellphone.
  • Send or Print
    You can send your snaps via email or Bluetooth to your friends. You can even upload it on your favorite social networking website. You can also print the photos as and when you want.

Nokia N96 Review

nokia-n96Nokia N96 belongs to the premium and extremely coveted set of the Nokia N series.

The Nokia N96 is a wonderfully designed smart phone compatible with 3G networks. The most outstanding feature of the Nokia N96 has to go to its 16GB internal memory space for storage. With such storage capacity and options on your phone, you will almost never run of space (disclaimer: for an average user) to store your music and video.  However, if you ever run out of space, the microSD expansion slot supports up to an additional 8GB worth of data storage.

Features

Nokia N96’s 5 mega-pixel camera is replete with umpteen number of setting usually found in any digital camera, like the lens is auto focus and has auto exposure features coupled to it, dual LED flash provided brightens up the pictures in dark places. Nokia N96 has Bluetooth and assisted GPS for navigation and integrated Wi-Fi connectivity as well for internet addicts. It also comes with a 3.5mm audio jack for listening with standard headphones.

Nokia N96 is a smart phone based on the Symbian OS with 128 MB RAM installed. Nokia N96 has an external look like a candy bar and a dual slide arrangement analogous to its previous design, the Nokia N95 with added rounded edges and a smooth face. This smart 3G phone is 4.1 inches in length, 2.2 inches in width and bears a height of 0.7 inches. It weighs a comfortable 4.4 ounces, but it can get tad bit clumsy while accommodating it in pants due to its shape. Nokia N96 has a non-touch sensitive screen which has a very good resolution of 240×320, producing images off a mixture of 16 million colors .The screen has a dimension of 2.8 inches and auto adjusts itself to ambient conditions which makes it more readable and watchable than any other phone. Moreover the default themes and screens provided can be customized by the user that suits him or her.

nokia-n96-media-keysNavigation

Below the display Nokia N96 are the various navigation keys and few shortcuts like menu and clear button. More so there is a special multimedia key, where one touch will instantly take you to your music, video, and game files. However some users opine these buttons should have been slightly fanned out over the surface. The alphanumeric keypad provided can be accessed by pushing the screen upwards. The phone when used sidewise with its set of media keys changes the view to a much better landscape mode which increases the view area and size for various media files played.

Package & Conclusion

The package of a new Nokia N96 includes along with the phone has a travel charger, separate car charger, handset, software CD, reference user guide and video out cable. Although it cannot be considered a substantial upgrade over its parent model Nokia N95, the Nokia N96 remains a wonderful smart phone in its own right.
