Upon opening the active lens cover, the camera takes about four seconds to turn on, and then it takes 6-7 seconds to save an image taken in maximum quality. The interface is in landscape mode and the menus are really easy to navigate through. Using left and right on the d-pad adjusts the brightness, while up-down switches between picture and video capturing. All the settings are in a line, which pops up when you press the left soft key – you can easily change the standard color effects, the white balance (this phone also lacks manual option), the metering mode (normal and spot), the scenes (there are plenty of options), resolution (3, 2, 1 or 0.3 mega pixels) or the focus (Normal, Macro and Infinite).

The camera has the trendy “Red-Eye reduction mode” but it is annoying that the shutter sound (four options) can't be turned off in the general profile but just in the silent. The phone can put the date as a stamp over the image, and saves the image (two quality settings are available) either on its own memory or on the memory card. What we found useful is that the menu keeps the last option used, and if you frequently change it (for example the shooting mode) this will save you a lot of time. The two key shortcuts above the display are also convenient, as they provide fast access to the shooting modes and scenes. Overall, the K800 camera interface is a pure pleasure to use, if you do not mind the “robotic”-styled icons.

I don't agree with the outdoor and macro conclusions. The reason is D900 and K800. On a closer look on this photos, the white balance of D900 is far whorst than K800 and the natural colours of the K800 are more acurate, like Canon camera. So, in my opinion, I think that the K800 has a little advanced in front of D900.

I agree with the first comment. Either you guys are getting paid by Samsung or you've absolutely no experience of photography. The D900 photos were low contrast and the lens is soft. Also how you can give the D900 first place in the macro test after the mess it made of the toy photo is beyond me.

I don't have any of these phones nor am I a fan of any of these companies as I think that all have something different. I think that the camera of sony ericsson k800i was the best over all (sometimes even better than the cannon camera). Since I wanna buy a phone with a good camera, I am thinking about the sony ericsson k800i which is an overall king. :)

Nivaldo, the N93 does VGA 640x480 video recording with 30fps, and image stabilisation!

you know, after seeing how the conclusion is clearly a lie. the SD200 outdid the D900 and the K800 in every phot and is not even included in the cocnlusion, and they still lied, i dont trust em anymore, how do i even know that the photos were taken by what they claim to be taken by, what a waste of my time of closely examining the photos.

Hey John, this is a 3-megapixel camera-PHONES comparison. Is that speaking something to you?

I have used N93, and the quality is nowhere near bad! Even in dark areas, it can take excellent quallity photos. And the video quality is absolutely exceptional! Only Nokia N95 and 6233 have the same video quality! I think the N93 you guys bought is defective. I suggest you retry this comparison test to clear the confusion you guys have made to those who want to buy a N93!!

Yea i agree....I have an n93 too and it's the best cam phone i ever had...Except in low light conditions...K800 is the true night shot king(in the 3 mpx phones at least)..

great effort by this guy, thx alot!! i agree k800i takes the nearest real life pic. but in times k800 tends to darken the picture abit, d900 is soft, yea i agree, but details wise d900 do have abit of advantage. d900 is no where good indoor, and lots of ppl say it need steady hands compare to others.
