The Thunderbolt's 8 megapixel shooter was mostly accurate with exposure, white balance and color. Out in bright sunshine, I noticed that reds got blown out a bit and detail was lost. Shooting bright whites outdoors also gave the Thunderbolt some trouble, causing white balance to adjust too far. Otherwise, images were sharp, mostly free of grain, and had a nice look to them.

They are definitely worth sharing with friends through the social network and/or image sharing service of your choice.

Video

The Thunderbolt can capture video at 720p. The video we shot was crystal clear and full of sharp details. I was actually surprised at how well the Thunderbolt was able to focus and get things such as exposure and white balance correct.

There's a near-fatal flaw, however. Moving the Thunderbolt at all during recording, even the most minor movement, caused extreme jitteriness and shaking in the video. In fact, the jittering is so severe, I nearly got motion sickness watching the video I shot.
