    Night mode just leaves the shutter open for longer so it takes in more
    light, you would have to hold the phone very still to get a good picture. No
    its not broken its same with all Nokia's. Its not night vision.

    Nokia 6600 camera

    Guys,

    The night mode camera on my 6600 is extremely poor quality (got all kinda
    interference, lines, white spots all over) - in the daytime it's perfect.
    Does anyone else experience something similar? I'm thinking if the camera
    was broken, the pics would be rather crap all the time, rather than just at
    night. (BTW I'm not talking about extremely low light conditions, semi-lit
    room).

    All I wanna know is: is my camera knackered?

    Thanks

    It uses a cheapo web-cam quality *CMOS* image device, and noise in low
    light conditions is inherent with these. AFAIK most mobile-phones use CMOS
    image devices.

    Nope it's normal.

    Real digital cameras (Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Kodak, etc) tend to use *CCD*
    imaging devices, and these are much less noisy in low light conditions.
    Also real digital cameras are equipped with *flash* , something
    camera-phones do NOT have.

    Nothing wrong with it. You want decent indoor pictures ? Then get a real
    digital camera.

    Oh yeh I knew there where exceptions, that's why I said 'tend to use'
    rather than 'always use' :-) BTW my 4megapixel Canon Ixus is most
    definately CCD.
