Review: Samsung Convoy 2
The Convoy 2's 3.2 megapixel camera does not take very good photos. Under absolutely ideal shooting conditions, it might get everything (exposure, white balance, etc.) right, but even that isn't enough to overcome the unavoidable presence of grain and digital noise. Grain is heavy no matter what the shooting conditions, and indoor shots are particularly horrendous. Images captured with this device might be OK for MMS sharing, but I'd avoid posting them to Facebook or Flickr.
The Convoy 2 can capture video at 320 x 240 pixels, or 176 x 144. Neither is particularly impressive, and the lower, MMS-friendly resolution is nearly worthless. Grain is present in all videos, and sometimes large digital artifacts smear their way across the screen when the Convoy 2 is panned to and fro. Bright spots and dark spots offer no details, and often confuse the Convoy 2's sensor. As with the photos, videos might be acceptable to share via MMS, but nowhere else.
