Fixing Nokia 5800 Shots

When Nokia announced that the 5800 XPM will come with a 3.2megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, I was stunned… cos originally, I didn’t expect it to come with an Nseries level camera.

Anyways, when I got to preview the 5800 back in September, I tried taking some photos using the camera and I have to say, even with its very early firmware, it could take very good shots.

At 3.2megapixels, the 5800 can take photos up to 2048*1536pixels in resolution. That’s big enough I think (although it’s better if it’s a 5 megapixel camera but that also mean the price will increase).

Now let’s have  a look at 2 photos shot using the 5800.

A macro shot taken indoors. (Click here for a larger version)

Some of you might be worried that the photos do not look good.. but with some editing, a good photo will eventually become a great photo.

Edited brightness, contrast and blurred the sides of the photo a little. Now isn’t that a great photo taken using the 5800 XpressMusic?

Now this is an outdoor shot. (Click here for larger version)

Bear in mind that the original photo looks great… but you can always make it look better with some editing.

Looks great? Haha… added saturation, increased levels and added a little sharpness.

Now does the 5800 take good shots?.. or great shots? 😀
