The TM506's 2 megapixel camera did a decent job of taking pictures, but it won't set the world on fire as the best cameraphone ever. Shots taken outdoors had nice color representation, sharp focus, no grain or noise in the images.

Indoor shots weren't bad, but they weren't great, either. Pix taken in fairly bright rooms showed a light haze and lack of focus. Pictures shot at night in rooms lit with 60-watt bulbs were yellowish, and introduced a bit more noise.

The TM506 takes good enough picture to share via online photo sites and email, but don't expect to be handing snapshots of your kids taken with the TM506 on your wall.



I have no complaints about the quality of video shot with the TM506. Outdoor video shot under sunny skies looked great. Nice and clean, little grain and no weird pixel smearing. Taking indoor video was a bit different, but the TM506 reacted well to drastic changes in lighting. There was no ghosting or smudging, there was a lot more graininess and noise, though that's to be expected.
