The Slide has a 5 megapixel camera. That's enough pixels for most people and most needs. Despite the slow time-to-focus, the results are often worth the wait. I found images captured to be clean, clear and well focused. Color came through accurately, and — when the flash doesn't go off — indoor shots actually look passable. Sure, there's a bit of extra grain and noise, but its an acceptable level. The camera does much better outdoors. Colors look rich and lush. Overall, I was pleased with image quality. You have to pay attention to the flash settings, but chances are you're going to come away with a usable shot.

Video was pretty good, too. It displayed more noise and grain, but focus was solid and there was no odd motion or ghosting as you panned the Slide around. You'll definitely be able to capture some YouTube-worthy clips. Spielberg wannabes will still need a dedicated video camera, but Indie directors just might be able to put together a decent short with the Slide.
