The Droid 4's camera can shoot at a maximum of 8 megapixels and is aided by auto-focus and a flash. This triple attack leads to good results most of the time. Some of the shots I took in my dark office turned out perfect, with solid focus, little grain, and good exposure — despite the fact that I had the flash turned off. The flash is bright, but is best used only when shooting people, otherwise you're in store for nasty glare.

Outdoors, the Droid 4 performed well. The bulk of images I shot were clear and sharp, were colorful and correctly exposed, and had good white balance and little grain/noise.

Video

The Droid 4 shoots video at a max resolution of 1080p HD. You can reduce that to cut down on file size if you wish. The Droid 4 suffers a bit from the same ailment I've seen on a number of 1080p HD phones: it gets a case of the shakes when panned about. For whatever reason, moving the phone while recording causes a severe shaking of the resultant video. It's jarring to the eyes to watch. Dialing the resolution down to 720p solves this issue.

Otherwise, the video is free of grain, insanely sharp, and correctly exposed. You'll want to share it, no doubt.
