Review: Motorola Droid RAZR for Verizon Wireless
Results from the RAZR's camera were disappointing. It has autofocus and a flash, and shoots at a maximum 8 megapixels. The RAZR suffers from the same focusing problem that we noticed with the Droid Bionic. Focus is nearly always a bit soft, if not downright fuzzy. Sharp, clear images were rare. Colors and white balance looked good most of the time, but exposure what haphazard at best, with plenty of details lost in under/over-exposed areas.
Bottom line: you'll surely get some good, usable images with the RAZR, but few stunning shots.

Results from the RAZR's video camera were better. Though I saw similar focus and exposure issues, they weren't as severe or as pronounced. Using the image stabilization tool really helped to control jittery movement when panning around, and the colors/white balance were accurate. Audio quality was good, though I wish the RAZR did a better job of filtering out noise caused by the wind.
The RAZR's 720p HD video camera works well, and will definitely help capture footage of your friends doing dangerous stunts or your kids running amok, but we've seen better results from other devices.
