Five years ago, the Nokia N95 was the world's best camera in a cell phone. As much as Nokia might want me to, I cannot say the same of the 900's camera. Sure, it captures pix at 8 megapixels, and boasts Carl Zeiss optics, but I've seen better results from 5-megapixel cameras with no-name optics. It's good, but not great. I saw too much grain in the images I captured, inaccurate color, and a lack of really sharp focus. The camera had a hard time balancing out scenes with both light and dark regions, and images often took on a yellow tone. Color me red, I am disappointed with the 900's camera.

The quality of video is on par with that of the images. It's OK, but not great. The 900 had a hard time sorting out exposure, and the white balance and colors looked off to me. Focus was OK, and the motion looked good, but sound quality was muffled and not clear at all. Argh, Nokia.
