Review: Samsung Dart
The Dart makes a passable camera in a pinch, but I wouldn't rely on it to capture images of what might be endearing memories. All the images I captured with the Dart showed serious levels of grain and digital noise. While color and white balance were often correct, exposure was not. Whites and reds were often over-exposed and/or blown-out. Subjects that are close and well lit will look good, subjects that are far away will appear somewhat fuzzy and lacking in detail. It is almost useless indoors unless you have spotlights for lamps. In other words, if you have nothing else better to use, the Dart will do, but barely. There's no way I'd use it to replace a dedicated imaging device.
Video quality falls into the same only-if-necessary category as the camera. While color and exposure are more or less spot on, the presence of grain ruins all the video shot with the Dart. Video captured outdoors may be worth sending to your friends via MMS, buts not YouTube-worthy.
