Studio shot

Our standard studio shot showed decent color resolution and light levels. Also, there was little image noise.

Night with flash

Night shots were quite good, though as with many camera phones, bright lights like the streetlamps were a lot for the camera to handle. In this shot we used the flash.

Night without flash

Night shots without the flash were about the same.

Here's a shot from the same location on a bright cloudy day. The camera did a good job separating the light from the shadows.

Interior sunlight

The Nexus One's camera captures sunlight well, as in this shot taken inside under a glass roof.

On the other hand, fluorescent lighting tended to overpower the camera.

Close flash

The flash is quite bright. At close range in a dark room it illuminated the subject fully.

Far flash

From a few feet, however, the flash is less effective.

The long shutter lag means the objects in motion will be blurry.
