See for yourself, the photo quality is pretty putrid. Outdoors and quite close in – if you can edge your head round to use the screen viewfinder – you can get some passable shots. The white flower is well reproduced for colour, though the resolution is an obvious let down.
Indoors with no flash, the camera is not good at letting light in and shots are fuzzy and lack colour definition. Shots taken from further away – such as the bike and the landscape shot – lack resolution, brightness control and sharpness. Enough said.
@Mike Richards, undoubtedly others
Take a look at the brickwork on the floor. It looks to me like the bike's up against a curved bit of wall.

I'm a right handed lefty?
@Sandtreader: Well call me a weirdo*. I've always worn my watch on the right wrist and used the left to operate - ever since my first red led digital watch - a fact more irrelevant than this post.
I've never noticed a watch wearers handedness.
There's a project for a Tuesday.
*you're a weirdo
(in context I'm right handed, except for card manipulations which seem to be universally destined for the weakest hand)
Bob61: Left handers usually wear watches on our *right* wrist, so we can use our (functional) left hand to press buttons, which even with contortions is better than using our (disfunctional) right hand at all. That's assuming you could even get the thing on using your right hand to do up the strap - try your watch on your right wrist to see the effect!
But actually, I was thinking it looked remarkably leftie-usable - you'd just have to press the call buttons with your left thumb instead of your right index finger, just like any other stopwatch etc.
But the inability to make calls without a headset is a killer for me. Maybe it should have the mic and a small speaker on the buckle, so you could put it to your ear like Spooks...
Dick Tracy Lives
Dick Tracy is alive and well and living in Korea, apparently.
As a leftie who is pratically disabled when I try and use my right hand, I still wear watches on my left wrist and have no issues operating them. If I wanted a watch phone (and it is very awesome if wholley impractical) then me being left handed would not stop me getting this watch.
