Review: HTC EVO 3D
Believe it or not, the EVO 3D only has a 5-megapixel camera. How do the photos look?
Viewing 3D content on the EVO 3D's screen gives me a headache, plain and simple. It works without glasses, which means the device has to be held at a certain distance from the eyes and at a certain angle. It takes practice to find this sweet spot. Until you do, the 3D content will make you go cross-eyed.
I don't know if it's a function of shooting 3D images with two cameras or what, but 3D images are almost always in focus and razor sharp. I've never seen such a series of perfect focus in images before. The sharp focus is what lets the 3D pictures pop off the screen and adds layers and depth to the images. Amazingly, other elements such as white balance, color accuracy, grain, and so on are all kept in check. I shot 3D images of some really dumb subjects, and the results were nearly always perfect, even in crummy lighting. In other words, the quality of the photos was outstanding.

Much of this quality carried over to 2D imaging, as well. The EVO 3D has an all-around excellent camera that does a good job and handling most everyday imaging needs.
Take almost everything I said about the quality of 3D still images, and apply it to 3D video. The EVO 3D shoots 3D video in 720p HD (or lower settings if you wish) and the results are extremely impressive.
The sharpness and focus of the video is second-to-none. Color accuracy and white balance were very well controlled. Exposure was the only iffy area I noticed, and it depended a lot on the ambient light available when shooting. Shooting indoors in darker environments will work, but the results tend to be grainy. Turning on the video light helps a lot, but doesn't entirely make up for dark shooting environments. Your best results will be achieved when shooting outdoors (even under gray skies) when there is ample light.
