I'm using Nokia N70 handset. It has a 2 mega pixel distal camera rated 4.8mm, 1:3:2. Can I take good picture using it?

It depends on what you want to do with your photos. If you just want to take snapshots to share online, then that should be sufficient. If you want to have prints of your photos, you are going to need a camera with more megapixels. If you're serious about photography, you will definitely want an actual camera. If you just want something you can use to take snapshots, then a camera phone should be fine.

The answer is "yes...and mo". If all you want to do is e-mail and maybe look st low resolution pictures on screen. it will do. If you want decent prints bigger than sticker-size, forget it. I have a 5mp camera phone with image stabilisation and a "real" glass lens, and it manages decent 5x7 prints if the light is good and I haven't used the zoom, but that is all. Of course, it also depends on your standards - it is surprising what some people will accept as "good enough".

Yes, I have the same camera phone for almost two years now and I am quite satisfied by the pictures. If you'll compare it to digital cameras, well of course, it's of lower grade pictures. But what you'll talking about it is the portability of the unit. I mean, you take your phone wherever you go, and it means you can also take good pictures out of your phone. The video is also good. The only downside is it doesn't have a good optical zoom. I mean, if you take pictures with very small subjects, you can't have a good zoom prints if you want to have them if you are only using your N70. That's why I opted to buy a digital camera with 7 MP with quality optical zoom for my ebay stuffs.
