The camera of the Nokia N81

19. December 2008 at 12:00

The Nokia N81 is a device which especially is designed for gaming with the N-Gage platform. Since this is the main-feature of the N81 it isn’t an “all-in-one device” like the Nokia N95 or similar. Its worst feature is the camera. The device has a 2 megapixel camera without autofocus. The camera is supported by a LED-flash.
2 megapixel, LED-flash and no autofocus – you think that’s not too bad and it can compete with a three year old device like the N70? Far from it! The pictures are extremely noisy and only a few are really sharp. In bad lighting conditions the pictures are almost unusable. To show you what I mean I have made a little picture-gallery…

As you can see in the pictures above, only the one with the candle hasn’t too much noise. All of the other pictures are either very noisy or blurred.
