Nokia 7705 (Twist) camera

As I’ve already mentioned, the Nokia 7705 (Twist) offers a great form-factor and decent hardware, but horrible software – just watch my rant at the 12-minute mark in this podcast :)

Ditto the camera. With a 3 megapixel sensor, an auto-focus lens, macro, and flash, the specs are fine. But the resulting pictures are quite poor considering the hardware.

I think it’s a software problem: shots are systematically overexposed, and colors are noticeably muted. There’s a general lack of detail – it’s the exact opposite of the Nokia Surge camera!

To make matters worse, the auto-focus is turned off by default and must be enabled each time the camera is used. There’s also no geo-tagging or auto-rotation…

Ultimately, the Nokia Twist camera just ads insult to injury, further eroding an innovative design.

    I’ve noticed the same with my nokia twist. however, when I first got it the shots weren’t over exposed and I had none of the issues I’m having now. I’m irritated when I look back through my photos. The pictures I took with it the first week I had it are beautiful, now they looks like crap. It makes me sad. I’ve been trying to figure out what the crap I did to the settings to make it do this, if I did anything at all.
