About the camera
To open the camera, press the camera key.
Why carry a separate camera if your phone has all you need for capturing memories and much more? With your phone camera, you can capture superior quality photos and videos in sharing-friendly file sizes.
The back camera on your phone uses the revolutionary PureView Pro imaging technology. Nokia’s PureView Pro combines an extremely high resolution sensor with high performance Carl Zeiss optics. These together provide unprecedented low light performance and superior photo and video quality in compact file sizes for sharing. With PureView Pro, you can also zoom and crop your photos in a completely new way. Your camera has three shooting modes and a variety of settings to suit every mood.
You can also use your phone to view or edit photos and videos, share them on the internet, or send them to compatible devices.
You can take photos even when your phone screen and keys are locked. Press the camera key for 1 second to grab your photos on the fly.
