Nokia 6630 Review

By 03:11 Sat, 07 Aug 2021 Comments

Nokia is going to launch its best capturing camera mobile phone, the megapixel 6630 model. It is a Symbian Series 60 smartphone and it's functionality is not much different than Nokia 7610 for example. Now we are bringing you a review dedicated to the integrated capturing camera only.

The capturing camera of the recent Nokia 6630 phone is really very good. Its quality can't be compared to the Video Graphics Array (VGA) gadgets and is also better than the cameras of the Nokia 7610 and 6670 capturing camera phones, which were the best Nokia capturing camera phones till now. The Sony Ericsson S700i phone is the undoubtful leader.

The higher resolution is not the only feature, which makes Nokia 6630 different from the previous Nokia phones. The capturing camera is responding fast. If you turn off the image preview, you will be able to shoot with a minimal delay - the lag between two pictures is approximately a second. Nokia offers also a possibility of sequential shooting with shorter intervals.

How does is shoot?

Before describing all features and settings possibilities, let me disclose you about the way Nokia 6630 is shooting. Keeping in mind that it's a mobile capturing camera phone, the pictures are really of an above-average quality - sharp and relatively not distorted. However compared to a usual digital capturing camera the phone loses by far.

Pictures in different light conditions and settings (full resolution)

Let's stay with the capturing camera phone. Pictures do not see like they were taken over a beer bottle. In the borders they are not fuzzier than in the middle. In some cases the picture has blackcorners: strong vignetting. Colors when shooting in fine light conditions are relatively authentic. The phone does not offer a possibility of setting white color balance. Therefore if the automatic color balance doesn't handle the artificial light properly we are out of luck.

The following sample pictures are in full resolution, without edits. Further demonstrative pictures will be smaller.

Nokia 6630 is the producer's first capturing camera phone which saves the EXIF information in the Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) file headers.

Resolution: megapixel… and a bit more

Previous Nokia models 7610 and 6670 offered "only" a megapixel resolution. The recent 6630 capturing camera phone is equipped with 1.33 MegaPixel (MP) sensor. The effective picture resolution is a bit lower - 1.23 MP, the highest picture format is 1280 x 960 pixels. There is only one lower resolution available: 640 x 480 pixels. Picture quality can be selected in three levels. However, there is not a gigantic visible incompatibility between the highest and the lowest picture quality. Only if you enlarge a picture on a PC, you'll be able to notice the stronger Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) compression.

The size of picture files depends on the selected quality level. While the average size of high quality images is 500 kB, lower quality pictures can be half the size, which means that users can spare a lot of memory space by selecting the suitable quality.
