I think Nokia's use of EDoF cameras on the C6-01 and C7 is a very smart move and will let more people take better photos more of the time. EDoF on the E7 is trickier. I'd argue that anyone with enough 'drive' to lust after and purchase the E7 is going to be tech-savvy enough to expect a proper focussing camera. Not just to capture business documents, but because he or she is going to want the very top end functions and EDoF, excellent though it is, is definitely aimed at the mid-tier and people who aren't technical enough to cope with focussing under real world pressures and conditions.
As a postscript to this piece, it should be noted that EDoF cameras will likely take better video as well, for almost everybody. Many of Nokia's recent 5 megapixel cameras have been left focussed on infinity in 'video' mode, meaning that any subject within a couple of metres (people, pets) are always a little blurry - very disappointing. Because, by definition, EDoF units are focussed on a point in the middle foreground (the RGB differences being ignored in video mode), video from the C6-01, C7 and E7 should be surprisingly clear and a welcome surprise to anyone upgrading from a 5800, X6 or N97 (for example).
Watch this space for full reviews of each of these three new devices in due course. Rest assured that I'll put their cameras through their paces in my usual thorough fashion!

Anonymous, 12 Nov 2010Hi Sagar,
I've heard that few changes in the video settings give us good results on C7. And... moreHi there,
As I said Video Recording is good enough but when you playback recorded Video on Computer, that time it doesn't play well. There are some lags while playing. But at the same time if you play the same video on mobile, you will not come to know any difference. Sound wise phone is pretty good. I mean it's up to you as what are you looking as "Sound". Audio Quality or Loudness or both. Audio quality is pretty descent and Loudness is good.

Anonymous, 12 Nov 2010hey is the 5mp camera of x6 better than 8mp of c7?You can look at Allaboutsymbian.com for some pictures taken on the C7. If you only need small pictures upto or less than A4 size then the camera, defintion, quality & noise reduced artifacts are not that bad.
That said. The colour reproduction of EDOF lenses does not tend to capture the correct colour. So colour saturation is off & most colours tend to look the same.
Overall the camera is very good for a quick fixed focus at 50cm everything is in focus & looks clear enough with minimal blurring but gthink about colour, fixed focus, limited to 50cm for things to be in focus, think about noise & quality only good for 6x4 or 10x15 & upto A4 size.
Anything bigger will lose quality & look poor. Also bad noise reprodcution in low or very low light even with LED flash. It's still better than 5800, not sure whether it's much better than X6. I would be inclined to think so.
If you want a great camera phone. Look at getting N8. If you can't then the C7 is probably going to be your best bet. It has no MAcro mode does C7, but N8 does have an adjustable digital focus which uses the full resolution of sensor, it's 12MP sensor.
It's also better in very low light thanks to Zennon flash. Their is very low noise artifacts in all photos, you can even dowload an app which allows N8 to take wide panoramic photos.
annie, 12 Nov 2010reposting.. is C7 okay for skype? not only for messaging but for call as well? how much ... moreno skype is avaible for it till now. But in the skype website it is said that a version for this phone n n8 r coming soon.

does ths phone has better camera quality than x6
been having this phone for a week now and I have to say that this phone works great in all areas. the only downside are the the camera and apps. I want to see more apps on Ovi for the C7 and I'm pretty sure Nokia will add more in the near future. I recommend you to buy this phone. but if u want a better camera performance then buy the N8.
Recently I bought this phone. The phone is perfect in all respect. In my C7 there's a annoying gap between front surround steel fame with middle section plastic body. The gap grows very badly in right side of the body (near volume key). Paints of battery cover and speaker housing are very delicate, it's get several scratches within 3 days. I used to keep phone in my home or office on a soft velvet pad. Can any one help me to find the Silicone Cover CC-1009 in West Bengal?
Prices in Kuwait.
It's priced @ KD129 in carrefour and Alghanim and @ KD139 in Nokia.
