Review: HTC Droid Incredible
The fast camera, insanely bright flash and whopping 8 million pixels on the sensor make for very good images. The camera was spot on with exposure, white balance and color. The flash is so bright, you're going to annoy anyone in eyeshot in a dark place, like a bar — but that also means you're going to have good pictures. Most cameras don't perform at night at all. The Incredible does better than most, thanks to the twin lighthouses beaming out into the darkness.
It is entirely reasonable to replace your point-and-shoot camera with the Incredible. Images look good, good enough to share online, good enough to print in sizes larger than 10 x 14.

The Incredible can capture video at 640 x 480 pixels. Videos look pretty darn good. Colors are exact, focus is solid, and there is no waviness or ghosting. If you're an iReporter for CNN, CNN is going to be happy with the material you contribute from your phone. Solid performance all around.
