The CENTRiC L3 sports a 13MP autofocus camera on the rear with LED flash and a 5MP fixed focus camera on the front for selfies. Both the front and rear cameras can record videos at 720p resolution. Talking about other features of the camera app, you get the manual control options for adjusting ISO, Exposure, White Balance, and others.
