Motorola V551 Review

Unleash the photographer inside. The Motorola V551 contains the same 330K pixel VGA camera found on other Motorola models; able of capturing photos at sizes of Small - QQVGA (160 x 120 px), Medium - QVGA (320 x 240 px), or Large - VGA (640 x 480 px) resolutions, while providing 24-bit color depth at 16 million colors.

When taking pictures, the upper portion of the internal display becomes the viewfinder, while the lower portion shows useful information such as available memory. Up and down navigation on the directional keypad act as the controls for the 4X digital zoom.

While not providing "true" zoom, as optical, the Motorola V551 uses digital zoom which will actually crop the image rather than moving closer, so images will not gain in resolution. Due to the compact size of phones, the moving parts required for optical zoom are not yet available.
