Nokia N82 Field Test

Nokia N82 5 megapixel camera phone with Xenon Flash

Who said the megapixel race is only for Digital SLRs? Right now mobile phone manufacturers are also into their megapixel race on their camera dedicated phones. Though I always argue that bigger megapixel isn’t really that big of a deal in real world use, I guess it’s comforting to know that you have a crop option when you have more resolution available. Recently, Nokia Philippines was kind enough to loan a few select photobloggers to to test, use and experience their latest 5 megapixel Camera Phone, Nokia N82 with built-in Xenon Flash.

I was able to take this gadget along with me on my most recent trip with the whole family and was able to field test some of its features. I will post some photos and yes some videos as well that I’ve taken with this cameraphone. I’ll post my full review in a couple of weeks after the testing period. So far there are features that I really like but with a few minor quirks as well.

The Camera Phone market has been dominated by Sony Ericsson’s Cybershot Kxx series phones. I’m not really a Nokia user, so it’s really refreshing to get to try this one and actually compare to my good ol’ and reliable Sony Ericsson K800i. I would have wish if Sony Ericsson could also loan me their latest 5 megapixel K850i so I could actually compare head-to-head but right now I have to use my old phone. So will I be a Nokia convert with their latest offering of Nokia N82? Will see in a week’s time .
