The 8MP rear facing camera on the Lenovo Yoga 10 HD+ is basic in its output but is quite versatile and has a reasonable UI to help you get the most out of it.
There is manual scene adjustment including a sports mode, as well as sliders for changing brightness, contrast, exposure and more. Manual control of ISO is a nice to have feature but really the camera is not good enough to warrant adjusting many settings and I left it in auto mode most of the time.
There are a number of shooting modes including a surprisingly well-executed sweep panorama mode. Night mode does little to enhance fairly weak overall low light performance. Speech photo had me confused at first, but it is just a single photo capture to which nine seconds of audio can be attached.
On the front of the Yoga is a 1.6MP camera, which is really rather good quality for making video calls even in lower light situations. I suspect larger pixels on that front facing shooter help in some conditions.
Video is captured at up to 1080p and can be set to record for just 30 seconds or for an unlimited time. The continuous focus mode tries hard to produce a steady video but ultimately fails as it hunts around a little too much.
One point of note is that the preview on the screen is artificially brightened by default although this setting can be disabled. I am not sure why Lenovo bothered with this, as it is a bit deceptive.
It is a comprehensive interface and fairly simple to use. It is just a shame the pictures the tablet produces are not up to much.
