Pictures

The Focus Flash has a 5-megapixel camera that is aided by auto-focus and a flash. I was impressed with the quality of most shots I took. Aside from the presence of a slight amount of grain, the bulk of images I captured were in focus, had correct color/white balance, showed good levels of detail, and were exposed correctly. The rocks and brick picture below, for example, would be challenging for any camera with the dark/light portions of the subject, but the Focus Flash nailed it.

You'll definitely want to make use of the Focus Flash's sharing feature, as the photos are worth it.

Video

The video I captured with the Focus Flash gave me a headache. Focus, color, exposure, all that stuff is perfect. However, the motion of the 720p HD video made me feel sea sick. Despite holding the Focus Flash as still as possible, there's a stutter effect noticeable in the motion of the video. See the sample below. However, you can tell by the color of the sky that it gets everything else right. I found that stepping down to VGA quality video improved the stutter effect.
