No auto focus means you need to focusing the main object manually, that means you have to keep the phone on your grip stands still for a moment to give longer exposure time to the sensor camera in order to absorb the light as much as it could.
Learn someting about its camera specifications, education is the way to better images, not more features or hardwares
The single most important thing to make good photos is the one that is using the camera.
Anonymous, 18 Nov 2010was going through photos taken from cedar put up in flicr.. http://www.flickr.com/photos/rrwm/... moreIt's completely clear from the photo that it has been knowingly captured with shaking hands plus the objects in the image r moving fast like car & the lightning conditions r also low.
Even N8's camera fails to capture good images when hands r shaken or when objects like car r moving fastly.
This proves it-
So... don't go for what others have posted.
Always rely on hands on experience.
Actually cedar not support autofocus feature and why some picture snaping with any motion?, this is a wrong method.
And why some pic snaping in low light conditions? which we know cedar dont have flash lamp. this is a wrong method to.
No sense n no knowledge at all.
[deleted post]Hehehe...some picture snaping in low light day n with some motions. Do u know how to creates our pic look like nice via cedar?.
Lets learns how to make n snap great picture via cedar.

lookin at x10 mini but i love sony feature phones better... sad tat hazel/elm dont have the 3.5mm jack!! :( :( :( :( :(
i just want to hav a cp have a portable to us and hve a rubber in between and hve a qualitie camera thanks
i love sony feature phones, but am planning to get x10 mini for better photos.. i have a few questions on x10 mini in comparison with sony's cedar/hazel... am aware x10 mini is an android phone.. plz help me..
1. can the contacts and messages in x10 mini be backed up in memo card like in cedar?
2. does x10 mini have features like call recoding, music call, mega bass, media centre, sense me, video call (through main camera as it doesnt have front cam) etc???
I'm sorry cedar. When I first saw you on the internet I scoffed the design philosophy for being too fat and too ugly. But when I saw the actual unit on display I thought it wasn't bad at all added to that is the 3.5 mm headset and micro usb. I actually gonna buy one and it wont cause an arm and a leg too. Nicely done sony E.
Anonymous, 18 Nov 2010This mobile is the best in it's range. I am using it since 1 month and am very happy with it.... moreYeah totally agree with you...and some people are trying to rule out the fact that it has a 3.5mm jack by saying "sound quality is poor no matter how good the earphone quality"... Just try a low end senhiezzer earphone with cedar... you'll be blown away! Forget about high end senhiezzers...
This phone so designed that it fits perfectly on palms, really a micro device with plenty of functions.
Anonymous, 17 Nov 2010i just bought cedar a 2 days ago,and it's working fine,it just gave me an error last time sayi... moreI want to know internet experience both (2g/3g) on mobile & pc. And plz also clear abou the battery backup?
I forgot to mention its a 3G mobile and i hav heard that browsing is also very fast( but m not sure abt it as i dont hav net connection).
This mobile is the best in it's range.
I am using it since 1 month and am very happy with it.
speaker volume is low but its loud enuf to hear the ringtone when someone calls you.May be some ppl in this forum are deaf that's why they are not able to hear the ringtone or they are not having this mobile itself.
No other mobile has internal memory of 280 mb in this range.
Music quality is too good in earphone.
UI is fast and simple,many shortcuts are available. Screen is good enuf to watch videos.
Under good sunlight it takes better pictures than many other 3.2 mp cam mobiles.
Video recording is also better than any other mobile in this range.
No fastport problem.
Looks great thanks to human curvature design.
Keypad is awesome.
Battery back up is good enuf,everyday i make call for abt 15 min,abt 50 msges, take 5 pics, listen to music for abt 1 hr and watch videos for about 1 hr and still the battery lasts for 1.5 to 2 days.
plus you get 3.5 mm Jack wit good earphone included in the box and 2 gb memory card.
Wat else can 1 except by paying 5500 INR ?
People want a lot by spending less ... Cedar is worth its money . Has a few drawbacks (low speaker volume) when compared to other phones available in its price bracket. But this phone has a few good features that can beat others in its range . We cant really find a clear winner among phones with price range of 5k-6k. People give weightage to some features more. i wanted a cheap 3g phone with good ergonomics and i got it .. people who give weightage to louder speaker volume may opt for other phones. The ones who want a good looking phone, 3g modem functionality(7.2mbps), excellent numeric keypad for mass typing,smooth user interface can opt for Cedar.
sandynator, 17 Nov 2010BTW see Page 10 of online manual........ Owners plz.. confirm that if the same power adapte... morenope , the charger i got with my cedar is different from the one in the online manual . In the online manual a removable usb plug is shown , while i got a charger having microusb at one end and a 3pin plug at another end .
[deleted post]Yeah right, Cedar is not that good.
Beware, some SE fans can not admit that & will defend Cedar.
rachit, 17 Nov 2010i have bought naite and now i want to buy one another mobile. i should go for naite or cedar??... moreThese r some things which r in cedar but not in naite - 16gb expandable memory ,280mb internal, music call , sense me ,3.5 mm jack ,micro usb(charging+connectivity) ,3g with 7.2 mbps speed ,better sound quality through headphones, faster new user interface, new walkman player, new & better netfront web browser ,keypad is much better than naite, call quality & loudness is better than naite ,signal reception is also better than naite.
These r some things which r in naite but not in cedar - front videocall camera ,photo dj ,music dj ,video dj ,code memo ,naite is much louder than cedar through loudspeaker ,slimmer than cedar.
Other things r pretty much same in both the phones.
