Micromax Canvas Win W121 Camera Details
Canvas Win sports an 8 MP rear camera which is a decent autofocus unit support BY LED flash. The focus didn’t take much time and the images were pretty decent in low light condition. We liked it better than Nokia Lumia 630 camera unit which is the main competitor.
As you can see in the image, there is some visible noise but the details and color is quite decent.
Notice the difference when the object in Focus is changed. In the Image below the Handy cam is in focus
The false ceiling image also shows some noise and blurry edges
