Review: LG Voyager
Photos taken with the Voyager are on par with those taken with the enV. It's 2 Megapixel camera scored 20/30 on the vision test. As always, lighting conditions play a big role in the quality of the images you get. If you make the proper adjustments to the camera before taking pictures, the results are always better.
Indoor shots had some level of grain no matter what you do, but it is kept to a minimum. There is no flash on the Voyager, so your best chance of getting good indoor pictures, especially in dark environs, is to set it to night mode. Pictures taken in bars and similar places were the worst of those we took, with the most grain and darkened colors.
Outdoor shots are an entirely different story. Very little needs to be done ahead of time and most random, off-the-cuff shots turn out well, with good color representation and little grain. If you're a stickler for making adjustments, you can really get some pictures that are worthy of being your computers wallpaper. As long as you have a steady hand, outdoor or well-lighted pictures are sharp, colorful and simply look good.

As with the pictures, video is good. Since you can shoot in MMS-optimized mode, videos can be curtailed to certain lengths and sizes for sending via the network. Videos we shot were relatively smooth and not too grainy. As with the camera, outdoor video looked better than indoor video. Just about anything shot under even the smallest amount of sunlight really turned out well.
