Sony Ericsson today announced the C905 Cyber-shot top of the line camera model. C905 has a 8.1 megapixel camera resolution with autofocus and face detection
Sony Ericsson today announced several new mobile phones and accessories where the C905 was the device that caught the most attention. No wonder why. It has a 8.1 megapixel camera with autofocus, face detection, smart contrast and image stabilizer.
C905 seems a little large, especially the depth. Dimentions are (height, width, depth) 104 x 49 x 18 mm which are acctually a little smaller than the comparable Nokia N95. The navigation menu is familiar for many as it is the same found in earlier Sony Ericsson phones.
In contrast to Nokias new E-models announed yesterday, Sony Ericsson has dropped infrared connectivity but we have Bluetooth, USB and WLAN.

The new C905 Cyber-shot and S302 Snapshot camera phones from Sony Ericsson allow consumers around the world to capture and share vivid photos whatever their needs, photography skills or budget. Whether it is a compact camera phone with prestige good looks, or a real alternative to a digital camera, Sony Ericsson has the phone for the job.
"The C905 Cyber-shot and S302 Snapshot have been developed to make us all better photographers! That means making it easier to take great shots and never missing that magic moment." said Sven Totté, Head of Imaging Marketing at Sony Ericsson. "Although both have photography at their core, the phones are very distinct; the 8.1 megapixel C905 is a viable alternative to a digital camera and the S302 is perfect for those who don't want to miss a moment and like to send or Bluetooth their photos to their friends."
