Review: Nokia 7510
The camera software is the same Series 40 camera software that we've seen before. There's no dedicated camera button, but you can configure the D-pad to launch it from the home screen, as well as add it to the active standby application list.
Along the top of the screen, you have the camera/video selector, along with your other status indicators. On the far top right of the screen is small picture of an SD card and it has an indicator to let you know how full the card is. Below the card it tells you how many more pictures you can fit on the memory card with the camera configured as it is.
Pushing up or down on the D-pad will zoom the camera in and out, and hitting the center of the D-pad takes the picture.

From the preview screen, you can choose from 12 different options including sending the picture, or saving it to a contact. You can also choose to edit the picture, though this mostly consists of cropping the image or inserting text on top of the picture.
With the camera open, you can also jump into the options menu to make all sorts of alterations to the picture-taking settings before you start snapping away.
It's easiest to get to the gallery through the camera application rather than using the menu. Once you're in the gallery, you can perform all sorts of actions. Sending MMS messages, moving files, renaming pictures and beaming via Bluetooth are all options. When each picture is open, you can perform most of those same functions, as well as editing the images a bit.
Rather than play a slideshow, you can "open in sequence." This language is not what you really expect to see for playing a slide show, but that's the only way to get them to open, er, in a sequence.
Lastly, when you have a picture open, scrolling through your images isn't exactly intuitive. Rather than press left or right on the D-pad, you have to press up or down. Not a big deal, but it does differ from many other phones.
