Nokia 7650 was stripped of all the above drawbacks – it is possible was to send photos via MMS and e-mail, photograph yourself, use fotoAON. In contrast, Ericsson, Nokia had incomparably greater success and laid the foundation of the idea of a mobile phone camera. Departing from history, let's look at itself the camera itself. What does she look like? Restrictions until recently, were very significant. First of all, it's a fixed focal length, that is, clear images could be obtained at a distance of approximately 25-30 cm from the subject. And since cell phones tend to minimalism in size, and then the camera can not be bulky. As a consequence – low-grade optics (usually plastic) and the simplified electronics. But we live in an age high-tech, you say, and rightly so.
By using cheaper parts manufacturers is pushing another reason. The average time to phone and functionally obsolete, and morally for the period from a half to three years. Accordingly, it becomes unprofitable to invest in high-quality implementation of the camera. Simply add new features to the phone, and without much increase in its cost to make it more attractive to the buyer. Now the situation has changed somewhat, but more on that later. Today, the market has developed around the following scenario: a conventional camera (along with mobile phones) can be divided into 3 groups – Low-end, middle-end and hi-end class. Within each group, particularly the difference in picture quality is difficult to detect, differ only in some functions (flash, effects, overlay during shooting and other minor details).
