Even though the C3 updates the camera to a 2 megapixel shooter, picture quality doesn't look all that improved. In fact, in many different lighting situations there was a haze or film visible in the final picture, especially on or near light sources (yes, I removed the sticker, and yes, I made sure the lens is clean). Essentially every indoor shot, even ones that were supplemented by a lot of ambient sunlight, were filmy, soft, and the white balance was off.

Outdoor pictures were markedly better. They were clearer and sharper, though still not perfect. Color was also more accurate with outdoor shots. The one thing to keep in mind is that 70% of all pictures are taken indoors. So, if you think pix of l'il Suzi's birthday party are going to be framed and hung on the wall, you're going to be sorely disappointed. Especially since the C3 doesn't have autofocus, nor a flash.

Video quality was not all that great. As we mentioned, the C3 didn't deal with drastic changes in lighting all that well, which results in washed-out videos. Action was relatively smooth, but there was some serious grain evident. The video also suffers from the same film issue that the photos are marred by.
