Review: Samsung Convoy 2
The Convoy 2 offers a 3.2 megapixel camera, and it also comes with a flash. The camera can be used with the phone either open or closed.
When the Convoy 2 is closed, just unlock the external display and select the camera. You'll see a small view of your subject. This is how you take self portraits.
When open, there are more tools available for controlling the camera. Scrolling sideways through this options bar opens drop-down menus for making adjustments to the camera's behavior.

The Convoy 2 offers a handful of different shooting modes, including panorama. The flash can be set to on or off; there's no "auto" behavior. Using the D-pad, you can adjust the brightness level, and well as zoom in or out.
The camera is slow no matter what you try to do with it. Slow to open, slow to work the menus, slow to take pictures, and slow to save them.
Using the video camera application is almost identical.
The gallery application is mostly unchanged from other phones that use the Verizon UI. It can be opened by jumping through the main menu or via the camera key and then to the gallery option. The latter of these two options is much faster. The gallery is locked to a two-column view, and lets you see six different pictures at a time. There are the expected set of options for moving, renaming and otherwise interacting with your pictures.
The editing tools have been revised somewhat, and now work similar to the camera interface itself. Users have a pretty solid set of options, such as crop, rotate, zoom, adding frames and other content and so on. More advanced editing controls include adjusting white balance, exposure, brightness, etc.
