The 1.3 MP camera activation key is above the "Send" key. It takes a couple of seconds for the camera app to load.

Shutter release lag is relatively fast, but I'd actually like it slower. The camera is still moving slightly from your finger pressing the "take picture" key, often resulting in blurry shots unless you're shooting in bright light. If the release were a nano second slower, you would have time to steady your hand before the shutter clicked.

Among the W755's other camera options are 3- , 5- and 10-second self-timers; brightness and white balance controls; and, choice of four shutter sounds, including silent. You also get a 4x digital zoom, but the resolution of the resulting pictures is cut in half with each zoom step. The W755 doesn't tell you this, however; the set resolution displayed on-screen does not change as you zoom. There also are three color effects – "antique" (sepia), black-and-white, and negative. You also get a bunch of "fun frames," but the camera refused to take any pictures with a frame chosen.

You can shoot self-portraits if you close the phone's flap; your face will show up, albeit grainy and hard to see, in the external display. There is no flash and no editing functions.

You can program the phone to store pictures in its generous 70MB internal memory or to an up to 4GB external microSD card. You can also send and save pictures to your Verizon Online Album.
