NokiaNokia N81 8GB Las Vegas strip photos : Nokia have chosen to equip the N81 8GB with a 2 Megapixel camera. The Nokia N81 8GB was introduced at the same time as the Nokia N95 8GB, but the latter got equipped with a 5 Megapixel camera. The quality of the N81's camera is rather low for a device in this price class, but since the price is a lot less than you have to pay for the N95 8GB, Nokia had to compromise on something. The LED flash is situated right above the camera lens. It has a range of approximately one and a half meters. This limits photographing in bad light circumstances tremendously. You should not purchase the Nokia N81 8GB if you plan to take photographing with your mobile to a higher level.

Mobile photography
Nokia have opted for a compact slider mobile phone. On the outside the cell phone has a smooth and neat shining black design. The small dimensions of this multimedia device are striking. The 4 x 2 x 0.7 inches places the Nokia N81 on the same level with devices such as the Samsung G800 and the Nokia 5700 XpressMusic. And although the Nokia N81 8GB does not fully aim at mobile photography, the N81 8GB's back does look entirely like a digital camera.

Unlike its big brother, the Nokia N95 8GB, the Nokia N81 8GB has a noticeable shutter lag. And writing the photos to the memory also takes about a second. Considering the fact that the N81 8 GB has an internal memory at its disposal and the pictures have an average size of only 500KB, it takes too much time. Photographing in the evening is a real challenge. The limited range of the flash makes it very difficult, if not to say impossible, to take a well-exposed picture. Despite the fact that photographing with mobile phones is still in its infancy, the camera on the Nokia N81 8GB is too limited.

Las Vegas Strip

The picture quality flaws in many cases. It looks like the Nokia N81 8GB has difficulties reproducing accurate colours. There is a green shade that returns frequently in the pictures. These greenish colours appear in daytime as well as in the evenings. Adjusting the white balance does not offer a solution. In the evening high noise values are visible and even to such an extent that you cannot use the picture. Pictures taken in excellent light circumstances are fine with a reasonable sharpness. Printing these pictures certainly belongs to the possibilities. Read the full Nokia review and take a look at the Las Vegas sample photos.
