Pictures

The images I captured with the Quantum's 5 megapixel camera were pretty good for a 5 megapixel camera, definitely better than those I captured with the HTC Surround. Outdoor images were sharp, crisp, and colorful. Exposure was mostly good. Some images lost detail in overly bright or overly dark spots, but that's pretty normal behavior. Shots taken indoors showed a bit more grain, but maintained focus. The flash helped rescue what surely would have been miserable failures, but don't count on it to work past about 5 feet.

Because WP7 does such a good job at coaxing users into integrating their Facebook and online albums, sharing pictures will be easy. I don't think anyone will be embarrassed by the quality of these images, though I wouldn't quite call them print-worthy.

Video

The Quantum's video-shooting capabilities also out-matched the Surround. I found any sort of footage captured outdoors was well exposed, with proper white balance and little grain. Indoor video footage, as always, looses some color and brightness, and is speckled with more noise.

Spreading Quantum-ified video will come naturally to those who like to shoot-n-share.
