Sony Ericsson W900i Reviews

Esato has reviewed the Sony Ericsson W900i, and talks extensively about the phone’s camera: “W900i has a quite good 2 megapixel camera with auto-focus. … The main camera can capture pictures with 160×120, 640×480 and 1632×1224 pixels resolutions. The portrait camera facing the holder of the camera has only one resolution of 160 x 120 pixels. Captured photos are saved as JPG files in Normal and Fine quality which can be translated to quality of 50% and 95% when saving a JPEG file in Photoshop. A test using the same motive but different compression settings shows a 36 percent increase in file size from Normal (336 Kb) to Fine (458 Kb). Light sensitivity is automatically adjusted by the camera application. Shutter speed and ISO value can not be set by the user but it is possible to change the exposure compensation to between -2 and +2 in 0.3 steps. The main camera has 80-800 ISO sensitivity and can vary the exposure time within the range 1/3 – 1/6400. F number is fixed to f/2.8 which means that the Sony Ericsson W900i does not require much light.”

3G have got hold of a Sony Ericsson W900i from Vodafone UK, the review looks at all aspects of the phone but this excerpt, looks at the phone’s camera: With so much else on board, it’s easy to overlook the fact that the Sony Ericsson W900i also boasts a thumping two-megapixel camera with auto-focus. If you’ve used a Sony Ericsson camera phone recently, this works in the same efficient fashion. The phone is held and used so the display is in panorama mode and the shutter button is used to take pictures while the phone is held like a conventional camera.

Assuming the Sony Ericsson W900i is on its side, click the joypad left or right to adjust brightness and up or down to switch between still camera and video mode. A dedicated key at the top of the handset and the camera settings controls zoom, and the camera’s full functionality can be accessed via the Settings soft key. It’s a very neat camera phone and, in two-megapixel mode, the print quality is great.
