Review: Nokia 7510
Images captured with the 7510 are only so-so. Nearly every shot I took had a noticeable amount of grain - or digital noise - in the picture. This was true even in shots taken outdoors in full sunlight. It left me a bit puzzled. I messed with the 7510's camera settings quite a bit, and was unable to get rid of the grain. Also, the 7510 had a hard time figuring out when to use the flash and when not to. Indoors, it almost always used the flash, and did so poorly. The flash almost always overexposed images and wrecked the white balance. In order to get the best results, it was necessary to manually control the flash, which gets old after a while. Shots taken inside had loads more grain than those taken outdoors, and just didn't look all that great. Sorry to report, but the 7510's camera will suffice for Facebook shots, but that's about it.
Video captured with the 7510 was on par with the still images. Grain, grain and more grain. There was also a lack of clear focus, major pixelization, and lots of warbly motion in captured video.
