Photos

The Sidekick 4G has a 3.2-megapixel camera. Image quality is satisfactory, though far from awesome.

Outdoor shots were mostly accurate with respect to color and white balance. Focus was a bit soft, but noise was kept pretty much in check. Indoor shots lose a lot of detail, especially in darker rooms. The Sidekick 4G isn't going to do much for you if you take many shots of your friends at night, but for daytime sight-seeing, it will at least remind you that you saw the Statue of Liberty when on vacation in NYC.

Video

Video captured by the Sidekick 4G was much better than I was expecting. Outdoor video, even under gray skies, was sharp, color-correct, and relatively free of noise. Still, you'll be able to send these videos to friends via MMS, for sure, but I'd refrain from posting them to YouTube unless it's the most excellent video possible of your friend making a fool of him/herself.
