Rather than the 8-megapixel camera you find on the EVO 4G, you get a 5-megapixel camera with a flash and autofocus. The camera's user interface is pretty straightforward offers a handful of advanced controls such as exposure, color, white balance, and various photo effects. My test photos looked a bit grainy and washed out overall, particularly those shot indoors.
The Shift doesn't tout HD video capture, but the clips I recorded looked okay. They were a little fuzzy, but good enough for an upload to YouTube.
As mentioned previously, there is no front-facing video camera. That was one of the biggest draws of the original EVO 4G so it is strange to me that it is missing from the Shift 4G.
