    Default EDoF cameras in mobile phones - Yuks!

    Have used Nokia phones for more than 10 years.

    Almost wanted to buy the Nokia E6, until surfed and found out that Nokia has changed from autofocus to EDOF for the Nokia E52, E55, E5, E6, E7, C6-01, C7, and X7 phones.

    To us photographers, EDoF

    = extended depth of field
    = fixed focus lens
    = cheaper to make
    = higher profit
    = you CANNOT TAKE CLOSE UPS !!!

    I guarantee you it has nothing to do with that, as 99.99999999% of their buyers don't know what you are talking about.

    Nokia is losing marketshare because they refused to let Symbian blossom, they burdened the whole system with bureaucracy and had no clear direction. They never set up a proper app store, instead relying on handango, etc etc. They took money from MS to go with Windows 7 instead of Google.

    Doesn't iPhone 3G have such a camera...? And Apple gained much market share from iPhone.

    Correct, because people did not care about the lousy iPhone 3G camera. It was the overall experience that mattered.

    You are absolutely right! Also smartphones need smart people to use them, like say those with an IQ of at least 150 and above!

    BTW my BlackBerry does not have a camera, so that means I must have a subpar intelligence.

    And phone cameras are only a nice-to-have to people who already have DSLRs or compacts.

    i couldn't agree more. i never would have considered (nor will consider at this time) a camera-phone/phone-camera as a primary camera. nokia had relied on their "market dominance" back when phones weren't as "smart" as they are now. as it stands iOS and Android are on top of the phone OS. the camera features are mostly secondary to the normal smart-phone buyer/user.
    is using a digital camera that works ...
