The 5 megapixel digital camera with Carl Zeiss optics, dual LED flash and video light captures sharp, clear photos and video that can be edited immediately, without the need for a Personal computer. Photos can also be geotagged to specific locations. What's more, the Nokia N79 cell phone comes packaged with a 4 GB microSD memory card that makes it possible to store around 3,000 songs, approximately 2,500 photos and up to four hours of DVD-quality video clips that can be organized by user albums or tags and uploaded directly to Share on Nokia Ovi or third party services. The addition of a sliding lens cover helps protect the top-quality Carl Zeiss camera lens when not in use.

Nokia Maps mobile application makes it easy to explore and navigate new surroundings by accessing more than 15 million points of interest. In-built A-GPS providing turn-by-turn navigation - for walking or driving - comes with a three month integrated license on the Nokia N79 GPS navigation phone. A Friendster widget will also be made available for the Nokia N79 cellular phone via the WidSets service. This will allow people to browse Friendster friends' profiles, view and post shoutouts, upload photos taken with their handset, and browse their own and friends' photo albums. All this enables more effective communication with friends while away from a computer using the Nokia N79 mobile phone.
