This what I am looking for in a mobile phone.

post #1 of 7

I am looking for a phone with THE BEST - photo and video recording capabilities.
I had a Nokia N95 and it was fantastic, I still have it. I have a Iphone 3GS - not impressed at all.
What phone do you suggest?

not sure if a phone is what you need with that requirement

why not a camera with wifi/4g functionality

Thats a possibility, I like to travel light, and a cellphone is usually with me. Carrying that plus a camera is just too much - with a wallet, car keys, etc.

There are just so many cellphones with cameras with high megapixels capabilities. But I just cant decide what is really good. The N95 had a carl Zeis lense... and it does make a huge difference. But now its a dinosaur @ 5MP.

I'm just going to post here, I have a Canon IXUS 220 HS and it's an extremely slim and light camera (I spent a month on holiday and kept the camera in my pocket every day for quick access in addition to my wallet and keys and was not bothered by it at all.) In addition the photo and video capabilities of the camera are quite astounding. It is no DSLR, but it is fully featured with manual white balance control, exposure, ISO, aperture etc all available which is more than a phone's camera and the photo's end quality is far superior to that of any phone camera on the market today.

I own a red HS 300 ELPH and I love it. It's super light and 12.1 mega pixels. wink.gif
