    I notice my SIL has a Nokia cellphone with an alleged 2Mp camera. Are
    these true 2Mp camaras? Despite the rather generous LCD, it didn't
    have the resolution to see resulting photographs properly and we
    didn't have a regular computer handy. What's the story?

    I would be more interested in the quality of the lens.

    Any chance we could see some sample images?

    I would be happy to put up some images on my server if you sent them to me.

    The Motorola Razr is 1280x1024 or 1.3MP almost square format. The bummer
    is you have to pay to email the pics to yourself or get unlimited
    messaging or inconvenient software hacks.

    Here's some straight out of the phone

  4. Cell phone cameras seem to be optimized for close shots. But you don't
    need to waste money mailing pics to yourself (unless you have a
    Verizon-crippled phone). I suck the pics out of my RAZR using the Mac's
    built-in Bluetooth functionality.

    It is Verizon :-(
    I found a utility that gets them but it's a royal pain.

    The jpeg compression on them and noise is horrid (oh and of course the
    flash's are useless). I've currently got a 2mp Nokia N70 but the image
    quality on best, is nowhere near the image quality of my old Nikon 775
    on medium. I've never used the Nokia for anything more than a snapshot
    to send to another mobile or small web pics.

    IQ (Image Quality) isn't based on number of pixel but quality of the lens
    and processing of the camera. Or you may find some old 1.xMp digital camera
    has much better IQ than 2Mp from cell phone.
