So how’s the camera on the Nokia X7? We’ll tell you right from the beginning that it’s not your twelve-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens and Xenon flash you will find on the Nokia N8 and thus the quality isn’t that good. But you know what? It’s not that bad either!
The Nokia X7, referred to by the Finnish manufacturer as being an entertainment smartphone, features an eight-megapixel main camera with third generation dual LED flash (focal length: 4.3 mmF and aperture: F2.8). It has 2x digital zoom for still images and 3x digital zoom for video recording. It shoots 16:9 videos in HD with a resolution of 720p. The pictures taken as well as the videos recorded definitely look a bit more vibrant on the smartphone’s AMOLED screen but they are looking really good on the monitor too.
The colors are not over-saturated, exposure seems to be just right — speaks for proper scene metering — and all the pixels seem to be in clear, sharp focus. That and most important, you don’t have any pink, purple or other colored spots to smudge the center of images or videos. What is also important that the audio captured in the videos is crisp, clear, as it should be, and not dull, low quality-like similar to other current smartphones. Is it that good so that it can replace your ordinary point-and-shoot? Take a look below and judge for yourself!
