Review: Samsung Rugby Smart for AT&T
The Rugby's 5-megapixel camera does an admirable job. The images I captured with it were in focus, showed good white/color balance, and exposure was spot on. Shots taken outdoors under the sun looked impressive. Indoor shots, as is normal, showed a bit more grain than outdoor shots, but still looked good. The bright flash goes a long way to making sure those pix of your friends turn out well. In all, the Rugby can certainly serve to replace a point-and-shoot.
The Rugby shoots video at a maximum of 720p HD resolution. The sample video I took looked very good. I was pleased with the focus and sharpness of the video, and the amount of detail visible. Color was a bit off, though. In the sample video below, you'll notice that my skin looks a bit orange. I assure you, I skipped the spray-on tan before shooting the sample. The blues look OK, though.

Bottom line, the Rugby's video camera does a mostly fine job at recording video.
