Preview: Motorola MOTOZINE ZN5
Motorola had a large number of blow-ups available to look at, as well as a number of images that Motorola staffers had taken on the phone themselves. It was hard not to be impressed with what we saw.
On the largest pictures (16 x 20), everything looked excellent: good color, good focus, good lighting balance. The exposures looked to be spot on, and some of them even had a tasteful use of fill flash to make sure dark areas weren't underexposed. There were a large number of pictures cycling through some picture frames. They all looked good.
Images that we took in the darkened conference room where we saw the ZN5 looked better than the average camera-phone's indoor shots. The use of the flash really helped to improve color and focus, which typically suffer indoors.
In all, these images handily beat those from other, lesser camera-phones. They are certainly on par with images that come from Nokia's N95.
