Photos

With so many megapixels to work with, I was expecting great things from the Charge and was mostly pleased with the results. Color, white balance, and exposure were generally accurate. Most images, unless captured in the darkest environments, were free of grain and/or digital noise. The biggest problem I noticed was focus -- or, more appropriately, the lack thereof. Too many images were snapped off just shy of sharp. This was frustrating and made me question my ability to keep the darned thing still. It is worth pointing out that these softer images were more frequent when shooting in darker environments. Images captured under the best circumstances were often spot on.

Video

The Charge can shoot 720p HD video, and lower resolutions if you want. Shooting in 720p is great, and the Charge did a good job in most environments at getting all the settings correct. I didn't see any jitteriness, any ghosting, or any odd digital artifacts on the video I shot. You can definitely snag some YouTube-worthy material with the Charge.
