Review: BlackBerry Pearl Flip
The pictures I shot with the Flip were the best I've seen from a BlackBerry. The Flip's 2 megapixel camera performs pretty well outside. Some details were washed out in bright sunlight, but colors looked spot on.
Pictures taken indoors introduced more grain and noise in the image, but that's not so surprising. The flash helps out a little bit when taking pictures in very dark environments, such as bars. It isn't good past about 4 feet, though.

Video taken with the Flip was a bit jittery. I noticed a lot of waviness and pixelization. Video shot outdoors had a perfect exposure and color representation, just more digital artifacts than I care to see in my videos. Video taken indoors was not as well exposed, and the colors looked more drab. Conversely, the digital artifacts weren't as noticeable.
