Review: LG Lucid for Verizon Wireless
The Lucid has a 5-megapixel camera with auto-focus and flash. The images I captured with the Lucid were decent, but short of great. It produces the best results when outdoors under plenty of light. Images will be sharp, free of grain, and exposed correctly most of the time. Every now and then white balance was off, but not so much that you couldn't correct it after the fact. Photos taken indoors were more apt to include grain, softer focus, and poorer exposure.
The Lucid's images will be fine for sharing, though you may want to edit some of them before posting them to your Facebook wall.

The Lucid can shoot video up to 720p HD. The video I shot looked pretty good, for the most part. It was in focus and exposed correctly, though sometimes there was grain. The Lucid does a passable job of capturing YouTube-worthy videos, though you may not want to watch them on a large 1080p HDTV.
