LG KC550 5-megapixel cameraphone

Looks like a fish, moves like a fish...steers like a cow

Delving into the options menu there's also a self-timer (three, five or ten seconds) and burst mode (three, six or nine pics), plus five resolution options, from MMS-friendly 640 x 480 pixels all the way up to full 2560 x 1920. You can also set the ISO (light sensitivity) between 800 for low light situations to 80 for good light, or on the auto setting.

There's a decent though not spectacular set of editing options once you've taken your pics, including resize, rotate and crop, plus the ability to add effects, frames and text. There's also the Muvee application that runs your pics together in a funky slideshow.

LG KC550

At 110g and 96.9 x 51.4 x 14.9mm, it doesn't take up too much room

Unusually for a cameraphone, video isn't just an afterthought and it will record 30 frames per second at 720 x 480 pixels. The resolution was impressive in comparison with many cameraphone, though we still found it could be a bit jerky even though there's apparently an image stabiliser on board.

There's an accelerometer which, though it didn't seem to come into play when viewing menus or test pages, does appear to work when viewing the photo album. Unfortunately it seemed to have a life of its own with our test sample, and would insist on displaying portrait shots in full-screen landscape mode and vice versa. Confused? We certainly were.

The web browser doesn’t rise much above the functional level, and since there's no 3G connection or Wi-Fi you certainly won't be doing any fast browsing or downloading. The accelerometer doesn't seem to work on web pages either so you're stuck in portrait mode with no zooming ability or page resizing options.
