Photography has never been a strong point of BlackBerry smartphones. But finally I can say that Blackberry has made a really good cameraphone. The Passport has a 13 megapixel camera with LED flash, 2.0 backside illumination, optical image stabilization (OIS), and 5x digital zoom. And it isn’t just specifications. Here are some daylight pictures from the BlackBerry Passport to prove it:
Notice the Bokeh effect in the above photo: I didn’t have to do anything but point and shoot to create it.

I have owned some of the very best cameraphones produced in the last four years. The Passport produces very good photographs. For the first time, a BlackBerry camera that I feel comfortable carrying around (and I am very picky about smartphone cameras; only really good ones will do for me). I say that BlackBerry has got a winning camera this time.
But then, that is my opinion. What do you think?
