Camera cell phones are one of the newest and coolest pieces of pocket technology on the market. Just a few years ago, camera cell phones were extremely expensive and didn't work all that well. Today, you can get a high-quality camera phone from many service providers without paying a thing--as long as you're willing to sign a long-term service contract.

How Camera Cell Phones Work

Camera cell phones benefit from ever-shrinking microchip technology. The same technology that lead to the first video cameras, then the first digital cameras, is now available in a tiny little cell phone. In fact, many cell phones contain chips that are much more powerful than those used in 20 year-old video cameras.

At the moment, camera cell phones are still a bit deficient in the quality department. This is a result of two factors. The first factor is the difficulty in fitting a good lens into such a small phone. The second factor is storage space; most cell phones don't have enough memory to hold dozens of high-quality images.

If you're looking for a good camera cell phone, always buy one that comes with a removable memory card. This will allow you to upgrade the camera's memory capacity, and it will also allow you to more easily transfer images to your computer or printer. If you have a large memory card, you can also use the camera's highest quality picture settings without worrying about running out of space.
