The Xperia mini pro boasts a 5 megapixel snapper with a single Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash. There is a handy dedicated shutter key too.

The user interface of the Xperia mini pro’s capturing camera is quite intuitive. You have a bar with five shortcuts to popular features on the right, a bar with the latest captured images on the left and still camera/camcorder switch at the bottom. You can cover or expand both bars with swiping gestures.

The five most used shortcuts allow you to change the capturing mode, resolution, to pick a scene, turn on flash and switch to the front-facing camera.

Upon pressing the menu key (or dragging the left bar to the correct side) you acquire some extra customizable options like focus mode, touch capture, white balance, geo tagging and image stabilization. The Xperia mini pro also boasts face detection and smile shot.

The image quality is good, but it could have been much better. There’s enough of fine detail in the Xperia mini pro shots and the color rendering is good, but the noise levels are too high and in some places you can observe the so-called staircase effect. We already saw quite similar capturing camera samples in the Xperia Neo fella. We really hoped for better than that.

Photo quality comparison

We’ve also added the Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro to the database of our Photo Compare Tool. The Tool’s page has a quick how to guide and also what to see for.

You can clearly see from the comparison tool that the shots are pretty much identical with Neo's samples and descend behind other 5 megapixel snappers.
