Photos

The Prevail has a 2-megapixel camera, and it doesn't include a flash or autofocus. That said, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of images I was able to capture with the Prevail. Outdoor shots were mostly accurate with respect to color and white balance. Focus was a bit spotty here and there, but grain was kept pretty much in check. Indoor shots lose a lot of detail, especially in darker rooms/environments. The Prevail isn't going to do much for you if you take many shots of your friends when out for the night, but for the casual site-seeing jaunt, it will suffice.

Video

Video captured by the Prevail is a grainy mess. Focus was soft, digital noise was everywhere, and it was slow to react to drastic changes in lighting. You might be able to capture MMS-worthy clips, but certainly nothing YouTube-worthy.
