Photos

The Cliq 2 has a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and an LED flash. It performed well. Indoor shots taken without the flash were surprisingly good. Focus was sharp, and the presence of grain/noise was kept to a minimum. Adding the flash helped illuminate near-by subjects, but it doesn't really work beyond 6 feet or so.

Photos captured outdoors looked very good. I was pleased with the focus, white balance and color representation. The photos you'll take with the Cliq 2 will be great for sharing via Facebook, Picasa, Flickr, and other social sites.

Video

As with the camera, video results were very good. It can capture video at 480p. It's not HD, but it's good enough. There was a little bit more digital artifacting than I'd like, but it was mostly free of blockiness, smearing, and waviness when panning back and forth. It also performed well in reacting to wide changes in background light. These videos are definitely YouTube and MMS worthy.
