Review: Motorola Atrix HD for AT&T

I gave the Atrix the ultimate camera test: I used it at a heavy metal concert. Concerts are an extremely challenging environment due to swiftly changing lights and colors. During the show, the Atrix managed to get a few decent shots, which is about what I expect from any camera during a concert. With those shots, I was able to drill down and see some pretty good detail on stage, despite my distant seat.

Shooting various stills of normal stuff around my house turned up better results. I found the camera offered sharp focus, good exposure, and accurate white balance in the majority of images I captured. Pairing the camera's controls with the gallery's editing functions means you have fairly significant control over the end results. Even using the "auto" functions for taking images, I achieved laudable results.

The default video capture mode is set to 720p HD, though the Atrix supports resolution up to 1080p HD. The video I captured looked good to my eyes. Focus was excellent, colors were accurate, and exposure was as good as could be asked for. From time to time, 1080p HD results appeared shaky, but that's only when the Atrix is moved around quickly during video capture. Owners of the Atrix will be happy to share both the images and video they've captured with all their social networks.
