Do Cameraphone Megapixels Really Add Up?


But are we really getting the megapielage we’re paying for? Al-Manazir thinks not. After receiving a Nokia N70 for review purposes, and running a few optical tests, the results were not good. The supposed 2-megapixel camera on the N70 actually output images at less than VGA quality. What’s more, the image was focused off-center, causing even more image degradation.

The article itself is an interesting read to anyone involved or interested in optics, but the message is clear: we might not be getting the quality we should in our camera phones.
