Review: LG G2x
I ran into a problem with the G2x's photos. There's some sort of film on the clear plastic that protects the lens. Whatever this film is, I couldn't remove it. The result is a haze on most images I captured, which you should notice in the photos below.
Aside from the presence of this haze, however, the G2x did a fine job of capturing color and white balance accurately. Focus was also good and plenty of detail comes out in all the images I captured. The camera did have some trouble getting sharp focus indoors, as you can see on the shots of my guitar equipment.
It's hard to offer a final judgment on the G2x's camera with this presence of the haze.

The G2x shoots in full 1080p HD. That's impressive. At full resolution, that's large enough to fill many computer screens. Unfortunately, the 1080p HD video I shot suffered from the same haze that still photos did. Again, haze aside, the video I captured looked really good. Focus was sharp, white/color accuracy was spot on, and the level of detail that comes through is incredible.
The one downside here is that 1080p HD will chew through your memory cards in an instant. For example, the 37 second clip I shot below came in at 55MB, so you're looking at about 100MB per minute of HD video. You can, of course, dial the G2x's video camera down to 720p HD or lower if you wish.
