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.
