Samsung Solid Immerse review: Camera
With a 2MP flashless camera on board, you'd be wrong to expect a huge amount of sophistication from the Samsung Solid Immerse's image capturing. Rather bizarrely, Samsung has seen fit to equip the Solid Immerse with Beauty and Smile Shot modes, as well as a potentially more useful panorama option.
NATURAL:Photographed indoors in natural light, this is a surprisingly acceptable photo.
The detailing isn't bad in the photo above, taken with no artificial light, and colour is fairly uniform. Well, as long as you don't count the background, which is meant to be the same shade of lavender all over.
TOO EXPOSED: The cat's leg is very over-exposed here, and zoom in even slightly and you see flaws and faults all over the place.
OUTDOORS: The variation in light availability outside really flummoxes the camera. The sky was a uniform blue.
PANORAMA: Stitching is good but resolution is poor in Panorama mode
The Samsung Solid Immerse guides you through taking six photos in sequence to produce a panorama shot that is a mere 207 pixels high and 1072 pixels wide. The stitching is reasonably good, but the resolution and legibility is woeful.
