Pictures in bright light conditions have excellent color and look sharp on the screen. Unfortunately the pictures do not look nearly as sharp when viewed at full size on a computer monitor. In fact the Kickflip actually performed worse in the vision test than many cameraphones with smaller sensors, scoring a 20/50 at best. Pictures also have a slight fish-eye effect to them, especially those taken of subjects closer than 20 feet away.

The video is grainy, but it is relatively smooth. It also has a pink cast to it that does not show up in pictures. The problem lies not with the camera hardware, but with the video encoding software.
