Taking snaps with Sony

Yesterday, I posted a photo review of my most recent trip to Europe. The pictures were taken with a recently issued new mobile phone, a Sony Erricsson V600i, ( See here... for the Sony Ericsson Page). While it answers the Bob Appleyard test, "Does it make phone calls?", I have been busy expoloring other parts of the phone's functionality. I took it to to Amsterdam and forget my better camera, another Sony, so all the pictures were taken using the phone.

I'm really not sure, if its me or the phone, but these are not great pictures. The small screen & the limited controls don't help but neither does my attempts at snapshots and spontenaity. In one or two cases, I managed to take more than one picture of the same view but it doesn't seem to help. The quality of picture from the Cybershot seem better. It may be that the whole "using a camera" thing means that I concentrate more when using the Cybershot and the loss of quality is the price of the convenience {the phone is smaller} and spontenaity that the phone enables.

The convenience has enabled me to photograph whiteboards, but even these pictures need writing up quickly as its unusual for the pictures to be of sufficient quality not to require converting to a presentation deck before I forget what was said..

I'm sure I'm not alone, but the phone is not as good a camera as the {designed for purpose} Cybershot!
