A unique function for Sony Ericsson camera imaging. Taking a single picture or even a burst of pictures does not always catch the moment, which may have been just before or just after the camera key was pressed. BestPic® technology is designed to help you get better pictures by solving this problem. Press the camera key half way down and the camera starts capturing pictures. Press the key fully down, and seven pictures appear automatically. The pictures range from left (just before pressing the camera key fully down) to center (camera key fully down) to right (just after pressing the camera key fully down). The center picture is the default picture, but not necessarily the best one. Browse the series of 7 pictures and save the best ones.
