A camera phone is a mobile phone which is able to capture still photographs (and usually video). Since early in the 21st century the majority of cameras and of mobile phones in use are camera phones.[1]

Most camera phones are simpler than separate digital cameras. Their usual fixed focus lenses and smaller sensors limit their performance in poor lighting. Having no physical shutter, most have a long shutter lag. Most have no flash or optical zoom[2] or tripod screw. Many lack a USB connection, removable memory card, or other way of transferring their pictures more quickly than by the phone's inherent communication feature.



The principal advantages of camera phones are cost and compactness; indeed for a user who carries a mobile phone anyway, the additional size and cost are negligible. Smart phones that are camera phones may run mobile applications to add capabilities such as geotagging and image stitching. A few high end phones can use their touch screen to direct their camera to focus on a particular object in the field of view, giving even an inexperienced user a degree of focus control exceeded only by seasoned photographers using manual focus.

Your scenario that you gave is widely broad. If your trying to transfer media or files from your cell phone, its an easy hook up connecting your media cord to your phone to the computer. If you are talking about hooking your cell phone up to a monitor(tv), some monitor have the plugins already built into them. If you find that the monitor that you have doesnt recognize the cell phone, go to your manufacturer website and see if you can download driver that it can recognize.
