Sony Ericsson C903

Mobile for cost-conscious photo fanatics

In camera mode the D-pad, soft keys and shutter button are all illuminated by an ice blue back light, which is a nice touch and also highlights these buttons as being active in camera mode. Extra functionality for the D-pad includes focus, timer (fixed at ten seconds), exposure and flash settings.

The camera's reasonably quick off the mark, being ready to go within three seconds of opening the lens cover. Even though it has a lower megapixel count than the C905 the features are almost identical, with autofocus, image stabiliser, face detection, BestPic, Panorama and Smile Shutter, which stops the camera from working unless it detects a smile. You keep the shutter button fully depressed, and when your stroppy toddler finally flashes the gnashers, the C903 will catch it for you.
