“PixelMaster’s Low-Light Mode measures the available light and intelligently adjusts the pixel size to increase light sensitivity by up to 400 per cent – and that means PadFone mini has the ability to snap great low-lights shots even without the built-in flash,” claimed Asus.

“PixelMaster also includes many other brilliantly easy-to-use options that further enhance PadFone mini’s digital photography prowess, including HDR (High Dynamic Range), PanoSphere, Smart Remove and All Smiles – the latter ensuring that all subjects look their best by intelligently choosing the best shots from a series of captured facial expressions. PixelMaster also has a Turbo Shot mode that lets users capture multiple still shots in just one second.”

PadFone mini can also capture high-definition (1080p) videod and users even have the ability to capture still photographs while shooting video. In the front, the phone has a 2 megapixel camera.
