Review: Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate for AT&T
The Exhilarate doesn't introduce any new features or functions to the tried-and-true camera software from Samsung. The viewfinder window has controls running down both sides. On the left, users can switch to the front camera, set the flash, or dive into a fuller settings menu. You can also choose to set your own shortcuts in this space, which means faster access to the tools you want. On the right, you can access the camcorder and the gallery.
The full camera settings menu is extensive and lets advanced users adjust nearly every facet of the camera and picture-taking experience. Exposure, scene, metering, ISO, and more can all be tweaked. “Shooting Mode” lets you pick from smile shot, panorama, action shot, and cartoon. Scenes adjust for lighting, and can be set for dawn, candlelight, beach, snow, and so on.
The Exhilarate includes touch-to-focus, and will lock onto anything you want in the viewfinder. Focusing is fast, but you still have to push the software shutter button to take a picture.

Overall performance of the camera application itself was excellent. It had no problems, and was quick to open, focus, shoot, and save images to the Exhilarate.
The Exhilarate makes use of the stock Android 2.3 photo gallery software. Images are stored in floating stacks based on date. The view of the gallery can also be switched to a more linear timeline if you so choose.
The gallery is limited when it comes to editing functions. Images can be cropped, rotated, copied to the clipboard, or renamed. That's about it. The Exhilarate doesn't offer anything fancy, such as the ability to sharpen focus or adjust contrast/exposure.
