Samsung Pixon Vs Sony C905 Vs LG Renoir - 8 Megapixel Camera Phones Choice

By Susan Hargreaves

The mobile phone manufacturers are now firmly concentrated on the latest camera technology and launching some of the highest specification camera phones including the latest Samsung Pixon along with rival offerings from LG and Sony Ericsson. As micro technology starts to play a major part in mobile phones manufacturing the number of features and applications available in a standard sized device has started to expand at a rate of knots, this technology is allowing for features that easily compare to standalone gadgets.

With the way that mobile technology is currently going consumers will no longer be leaving their homes with a number of assorted gadgets but instead the latest mobile phone will take care of most if not all of their daily entertainment, communication and multimedia needs.

A typical example of this latest technology is the introduction of 8 megapixel camera lenses in mobile phones, it was only months ago that standalone digital cameras were able to offer consumers this quality of picture capture but now it can be found alongside the communication needs of a consumer in the form of a mobile phone.

As with the latest offering from Samsung, we can even take advantage of features such as face detection and image stabilisation which has always been the realm of digital cameras, the new Samsung Pixon offers this same technology and other surprising camera features.

Autofocus is present making image capturing easy for any amatuer photographer, advanced shake reduction and wide dynamic range also feature in the Samsung Pixon camera options, also can be said for this phones rivals in the form of the LG Renoir and Sony Ericsson C905.

The LG Renoir takes this camera technology a step further by offering a Schneider Kreuznach lens, autofocus, manual focus, Face Tracking, smile and blink detection and a xenon flash. The Samsung Pixon has an older style LED flash which is fine for poor light conditions but will not produce the results of a Xenon flash in dark environments.

The Sony Ericsson C905 also offers face detection technology and the Xenon flash of the LG Renoir but this is a Cybershot phone, renowned as a photographic focussed phone (excuse the pun) the Cybershot range has always taken mobile phone photography one step further than its competitors, the same can be said for this latest model which has an 8.1 megapixel camera with 'real' camera flash and a massive 16 x zoom for close up photo capture.

Deciding between these models is difficult and many consumers will be lead by what they know, that is to say that most mobile phone users have grown accustomed to a particular manufacturer and find it hard wavering to competitors, in general once a consumer has had a good experience with a certain phone model they will stick with the manufacturer in the future.

As the technology becomes available the mobile manufacturers are jumping on it fast and releasing it to the general public, 8 megapixel phones are a huge leap from the previous 5 megapixels offered by what were the top of the range models only weeks ago.

The Samsung Pixon, Sony Ericsson C905 and LG Renoir have been joined by some new 8.0 megapixel phones, the manufacturers are not resting on their laurels and Samsung have already released the i8510 whilst LG the KC780, this brings the current total to five high specification camera phones on the UK markets.

Consumers can expect more of the same moving into next year with the eventual onset of 10 megapixel devices in the near future, they are already available in the Japanese markets and it is only a matter of time before they make their way into the pockets of UK consumers - The death of the digital camera?

The Samsung Pixon, Sony Cybershot C905 and LG Renoir have all been released in the UK, for further and more detailed information please refer to our online mobile phones shop.
