Review: Motorola's Droid X
The Droid X's 8 megapixel shooter did a great job. It had better, given the size of the lump it creates on the back of the Droid X. Color representation was spot on, white balance was accurate, and it had no trouble performing well in both darker and brighter environments. The mechanical shutter does in fact help make for sharper pictures. For the casual tourist, I'd say the Droid X comes as close as you're going to get to replacing your point-and-shoot. It won't replace a dSLR, but you can leave the little camera at home this summer. You'll be pleased enough with the results to share them via Facebook, Flickr, and Picasa. Heck you might even print a few out.
Our review unit has crashed, preventing us from sharing photos and video taken from it. We're doing our best to get it back up and running again. Hopefully we'll be able to post pictures and video soon.
The Droid X can record video at 720p HD resolution at 24 frames per second (the same frame rate as movies). The results are good. The Droid X reacted well to drastic changes in lighting, it captured sharp and fine detail, and even when zoomed in it performed above par.
