Review: Samsung Focus 2 for AT&T
The Focus has a 5-megapixel camera and the images I captured with it were all quite good. I saw accurate color, sharp focus, and crisp, clear results. There's little grain and some of the images really showed great detail. I took the Focus to a concert and managed to capture some exceptional photos with it. Concerts are extremely challenging for even the best cameras thanks to the tricky lighting. The fact that I was able to get images with even a modicum of detail that weren't completely over- or underexposed is a testament to how well the Focus's camera sensor was designed.
The Focus has a really good fire-and-forget camera that you don't need to adjust much to get good pix.

The Focus captures video in up to 720p HD resolution. I found the video captured was quite excellent. The videos didn't have any of the over-sharp and jittery problems I've seen on superior devices. Instead, video was accurately exposed, in focus, and colors looked rich and warm. I wish the video camera had more options, though, especially the ability to capture video in 1080p HD.
