Treo 700w Camera Reviews

Treo Central have reviewed the Treo 700w, here’s an excerpt about the devices camera: Technology has continued to evolve though, and in the Treo 700w, Palm is finally able to offer the long awaited 1.3 mega pixel camera at equal, and I think better, quality. Jpeg images are taken at 1280×1024, 640×480, 320×240, 230×180, and 160×120 resolutions, and at high, medium, and low compression qualities. (At default settings, most photos come in under 80 Kb a piece).

Mobile Tech Review have also reviewed the Palm Treo 700w’s camera, here’s what they say: The Treo 700w’s 1.3 megapixel camera is an improvement over the Treo 650’s VGA affair. That might seem obvious given the resolution increase but all camera phones aren’t created equal and we’ve seen some very nice VGA shots (i.e.: the Treo 650) and some poor 1.3 MP cameras (i.e.: the Motorola MPx 220). The Treo 700w takes sharp photos by camera phone standards, with relatively low noise. Our only complaint is that the photos lack colour saturation. Your favourite desktop image editor can crank up the colour saturation to good effect, adding little distortion in the process, so we won’t complain too much.

Mobile Burn have reviewed the Palm Treo 700w, here’s a little about the Treo 700w’s camera: Another let-down for the Treo 700w is the built-in 1.3 megapixel camera. In theory the resolution that the camera offers is adequate, but the reality is that the image quality it offers negates any benefit of having a megapixel camera. The outer areas of the photos it takes appear blurry, the photos have an overall low contrast, and diagonal lines look particularly jagged when photographed with the Treo 700w. The only high point is a pretty accurate automatic white balance system, which is a good thing since there are no manual white balance settings available.
