The Playbook’s rear camera packs 5MP punch. Below are some test shots in different lighting situations. As you can see it takes some pretty clear shots, but performs a little under my satisfaction level in indoor low light settings (to be fair, most cameras have issues in that light setting). Also, to be even fairer, the iPad2’s cameras are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay worse.
The camera settings can be accessed in the above pull-down menu.
Outdoor shot with completely natural light
Taken at a Starbucks with natural light from all directions.
My BerryReview home office. A good shot taken with natural sunlight indoors.
Indoor shots in low light settings do not have the best results. But in that situation, you may just want to take out a real camera anyway.
