Camera Phone Crap


Why I passed on the new Sony Ericsson P800...

It's a phone! It's a camera! It's got Bluetooth! Oh yeah -- it costs a thousand bucks and won't work with my Mac!

The latest from Sony Ericsson also includes onboard MP3 and video players. Check out this preloaded "hit single" while you scroll through the pix...





Me with my new toy, fresh from its first charge. As you can see, I was so excited to try it out that I forgot to dress for the occasion -- ahem!



The second photo I snapped opened my eyes to the unit's muddy resolution and soft focus...



... And it's weak low-light performance was all-too apparent in the back room of a local brunch spot.



But I had two weeks until I had to return the thing, so I kept it around. Here's recent MuchMusic Video Award winner Ray Dumas with son Jameson.



Here's Ray's wife Katherine, with possibly the first photo of their new daughter Cleo... Oh wait, maybe not.

All in all, I can do without another camera, at least until the new Treo comes out this fall :->
