Nokia Fun Camera (PT-3) - Mobile Accessories Nokia Fun Camera (PT-3)

11 December 2003
Written By David Hall

Sales package (should contain):
  • 1 x Nokia Fun Camera (PT-3)
  • 1 x Head strap
  • 1 x View Finder
  • 1 x Multi-lingual User Booklet
  • 2 x AAA Batteries


The Nokia PT-3, also known as the Fun Camera, is the second of its kind from Nokia that is compatible with the new colour-screen Nokia mobile phones that have the Pop-Port technology. Its younger sister is the HS-C1, which was a handsfree integrated with a VGA camera. The PT-3 has no handsfree option, and unlike the HS-C1, it runs off with its own battery supply (2x AAA batteries) and is purely stand alone. Weighing about 90g, it is small enough to fit in your hand.

The PT-3 is compatible with all Nokia phones that use the Pop-Port interface. These phones include Nokia 6610 (our mobile handset for this camera review unit), 6100, 5100, and the 7210. If you are unsure whether your phone uses the Pop-Port connection, check your user manual. Obviously these newer phones from Nokia also have the ability to send MMS (Multi-media Messaging Service) messages; either to another MMS enabled handset or to an e-mail address where the picture will arrive as an attachment to a maximum 1000 character message.

The Fun Camera is a very funky little accessory for your phone. It is available in only one colour, or colours should I say. It has a red line pattern on the inside, and an orange outer shell. The buttons are red with white images, and the shoot button is also red on the orange foreground. The screen is circular with an ambient light to it, with the buttons surrounding its right side, and the viewfinder on the left. A green LED indicates when the flash is primed and ready to go.

You wonít need to use the viewfinder when taking a picture, but it is quite handy. Imprinted in the middle of it is a frame, so you can preview the picture exactly how it would appear before you take it. Although most cameras required you to put your eye right up close to the viewfinder, the Fun Camera does not require you to do so. Youíll only need to focus your eye about 10cm from it to see through it.

When the time has came for you to have finished fun snapping away with the camera, you can turn it off manually, or if you forgot to do so, it will turn itself off after a short amount of time. Three beeps will sound and the green LED will blink when it is going to turn off.

Images can be sent to the chosen phone via the cameraís own Pop-Port connector. Where the green light is located, there is a rubber Ďflapí which can be flicked open to reveal the connector with enough room to fit in even a Nokia 5100 with itís rubber out casing.

The head strap has two small lengths at the end of the main part, which can be attached 1) to the viewfinder, and 2) to the actual camera in a loop. The strap is then placed over the head and the camera will dangle at your chest until youíre ready to take a photo, with enough slack so you can hold the camera properly.

If you donít want the head strap on, you can simply un-loop it and removed, but I recommend that you donít do this because the viewfinder is quite small and most probably un-replaceable from a Nokia Care shop - so donít loose it! =) The strap can also be used to simply hold the camera around your wrist.
