Review: HTC EVO 3D
The camera software itself — whether you're shooting in 2D or 3D mode — is exactly the same as on the Sensation 4G.
The camera application launches quickly and offers plenty of controls for adjusting settings and other behaviors. There is a strip on the right side of the viewfinder to access many of the settings, but more fine-tuning is available if you care to hit the menu key.

The EVO 3D has touch-to-focus; if you see something on the display and you want it to be in focus, press it. The camera will focus on that spot. Press the shutter button on the screen to actually take a picture. The EVO 3D focuses and shoots pictures very quickly. The review screen lets you send the photo off wherever you want with just a few quick taps.
As with other Sense phones, the EVO 3D uses HTC's gallery software. It can be opened from either the camera or the menu, and presents pictures in either a timeline or via grid. The timeline mixes pictures and videos into one long stream of images and movies. The entire stream flows back and forth in a fluid manner as you swipe your finger to and fro.
The major difference is how it treats 2D/3D content. They can be segregated or lumped together. 2D images can be edited as they are, but 3D images are first converted to 2D (i.e., normal) images before they can be edited. The edited versions cannot be returned to 3D. The only real edits you can perform to 3D images are to adjust the alignment of the 3D layers (which would help with focus/clarity). Otherwise, 3D images need to stay pretty much the way they are. You can't even crop or rotate them. It's a bummer that 3D images can't be futzed with.
Media sharing options are solid, and include most of the major social networking and photo sharing services. 2D images can be cropped and rotated, and select effects can be applied. The effects include typical options such as black and white, vintage, antique and so on. If you want to edit things such as exposure, you can do so only with these effects, such as Auto-enhance, Overexposed, and High Contrast.
