The camera setup on the Acer Iconia Tab A510 is as native ICS as you can get.

And by that we mean it's as basic as you can get.

Don't expect too many bells and whistles when it comes to this aspect of the A510, although 5-megapixel stills and Full HD 1080p video is on offer.

In terms of settings you have the option to play around with the white-balance a bit, with four pre-set configurations on offer (incandescent, daylight, fluorescent and cloudy) and you can also slightly tweak the exposure level.

But that's about it – no macro mode, no touch-to-focus and no flash. Just an autofocus snapper and that's about it.

On the video front there a few effects thrown in, such as comedy-face animations and 'wacky' backgrounds but, let's face it, you're hardly likely to use them.
