Review: Nokia Lumia 710 for T-Mobile USA
The Lumia 710 takes good pictures for a 5-megapixel shooter. I found focus to be consistently spot-on (despite the odd camera button behavior) and the 710 did a great job correctly exposing even tricky scenes. It has a flash to help in low-light environments. Using the flash will illuminate the subject nicely, but the background tends to be underexposed and devoid of detail. There's perhaps a bit more grain in images than I'd like to see, but the consistently good white balance, exposure, and focus make up for that a bit. You'll happily want to share the images you take with the 710.
The video camera, which behaves exactly as the camera application and includes many of the same settings and controls, shoots video at either 720p or VGA resolutions. The 720p video is captured in a 16:9 aspect ration, while the VGA video is captured in 4:3 resolution. Both looked good, and I was especially pleased with the 720p results. Most videos looked great on my 55-inch HDTV. Sharing them via YouTube or to your SkyDrive account is a breeze.
