<p>SAN DIEGO--When I first saw Sprint's <a href="http://reviews.cnet.com/smartphones/lg-optimus-g-sprint/4505-6452_7-35427825.html">LG Optimus G</a> with my own eyes at <a href="http://reviews.cnet.com/CTIA/">MobileCon 2012</a> in San Diego, I wasn't convinced that its 13-megapixel camera had the goods. My original indoor shots, which you'll see below, were largely terrible, and the eerie conference center lighting didn't help.</p>

<p>I'm happy to report that taking CNET's Sprint review unit into the great outdoors proves otherwise. The camera's continuous autofocus and other tricks are great help in focusing on the screen. While there were still some imperfect shots, many were terrific, like this outdoor view of the famous Gaslamp sign downtown.</p>

<P>Note that the AT&T version of the phone has an 8-megapixel camera, not a 13-megapixel camera.</p>
