    Hi guys

    I was looking at the new Nokia 5800, i was impressed, but yet again another phone that cannot take good pictures in low light environment. Is there a touchscreen phone out there that can handle taking pictures with low light? Any of the Samsungs any good for this?

    Kind Regards
    Bigmaz

    Phones have cameras with tiny sensors, meaning they don't get much light and are poor in lowlight conditions. The more megapix, the worse it is.

    But Joe public thinks more megapix means better so the manufacturers are cramming more and more on.

    So a xenon flashed model or one where you can set the exsposure time is the best you are going to get :(

    What standard of "good" do you require?

    My Canon G9, a dedicated camera and second 'best' Canon sell in non-DSLR offerings is merely satisfactory in low-light due to the inherent size of the sensor v megapixel ratio but would still be superior to a camera phone

    A mobile phone has no chance, but then that depends on how "good" you want the pics to be. Then it is as the above advice
