Boost IT visibility and business value

Capture the moment

HTC’s cameras have yet to impress but the Sensation’s snapper makes a better than usual effort. Handy features include autofocus and face detection as well as a dual LED flash. There’s also a new ‘instant capture’ feature, which basically means it takes the picture a bit faster rather than waiting for the autofocus to go through its motions. It’s not quite instant, but it’ll take a snap in less than a second, which isn’t bad.

Picture quality is definitely getting better, with fairly sharp edges and decent (if a little vibrant) colour balance. Detail suffers a little compared to the best but it’s a good step beyond some of the shameful efforts HTC has offered us in the past. The 1080p video recording looks sharp enough, but it’s not immune from a bit of jerkiness on occasion. There’s also a VGA camera on the front for video chat and self portraits.
