Review: T-Mobile MDA
The MDA's camera scored a 20/40 on the vision chart, which is quite good for a 1.3 MP sensor. In daylight, even bright daylight, it does a good job of capturing color, although it leans heavily towards the green side of the spectrum, nearly bleaching out the orange building when next to the green grass. At night the flash does a decent job of lighting up close subjects, but pictures come out a bit blurry. The edges are not crisp like in the daylight, but subjects are still look in focus.
The video is not nearly as good as the still camera. Even though the MDA is recording at a tiny 176x144, the video is choppy. With its hardware and decent camera sensor, there is no reason the MDA shouldn't be able to produce much better video. The microphone was quite sensitive and unfortunately couldn't help but record background noise at a loud volume as well.
