For a while now I have been itching to replace my mobile phone. Mainly to get one with a better camera built in. My old phone is the Sony Ericsson k750i which has a 3M pixel camera. In the end I opted for a Sony Ericsson c902 which has a 5M pixel camera, bought boxed and unused on eBay.
There are many times I go out without a DSLR or video camera but the phone is always in my shirt pocket. One disadvantage from the nature photographers point of view is the very wide angle lenses mobile phones have as they are presumably designed for close work often in confined places but if you can get close to things then the auto focus on the S.E. phones does a good job.
Yesterday I took a few test shots to check it out as the phone had only arrived at midday.

I am pleased with the colour reproduction and I think it has lived up well to all the good reviews I had read about this phone.
Shirl of Shirls Gardenwatch has just written about the various cameras she uses at home and out and about. It is an interesting illustrated read and can be found HERE. I don't know about you but I always like to find out what equipment other people are using.
