Camera Quality: Shooting Indoors And Outdoors

Sony Tablet S Review: The Media Enthusiast's Dream Tablet
By

Camera Quality: Rear-Facing, No Zoom

The rear-facing camera on the Tablet S is probably closest to Asus' Transformer in terms of quality. Both lack a flash, so you need good lighting to achieve nice-looking pictures. Be careful of strong light sources; lens flare can be a major problem.

Camera Quality: Rear-Facing, Max Zoom

The Tablet S yields zoomed-in shots similar in quality  to other tablets equipped with 5.0 MP cameras.

Camera Quality: Rear-Facing, Macro

Macro shots turn out surprisingly well.

Camera Quality: Front-Facing

The Tablet S' real weakness is its low resolution (640x480) 0.3 MP front-facing camera. Nearly other every competing Android-based tablet offers better image quality. Overall the front-facing camera has a hard time compensating for low light. If you plan to use a VoIP app like Skype, make sure you're in a well-lit room first.
