HTC One S Camera and Video Samples

One of the features HTC is very proud of on the T-Mobile HTC One S and other One series smartphones is the camera on the back. It features a 28mm wide-angle f/2.0 lens backed by a camera app with a ton of settings and filters.

With this hardware, owners of the One S will have a pretty powerful mobile camera in their pockets. How good the resulting images are still depends on other factors, though: the environment and the person behind the lens.

I spent the day shooting pictures and video with the HTC One S. I’m no great photographer, but I do take lots of pictures with phones so I know a little bit about tweaking the settings. Still, I couldn’t coax great pictures out of the phone indoors. Outside, the camera snapped some good images.

The camera app itself is packed full of settings and stuff, and in some areas attempts to guide users in making images better.

Among the nicer features on the One S is the ability to snap still images while recording video (and while playing it back).

Users can also edit images, adding filters, messing with the brightness, contrast etc. and other tricks to clean up a less than perfect photo.

Overall, it’s an excellent app for those who want to take their mobile photography to the next level. Most of the pictures produced by the HTC One S aren’t terrible and have potential. I’d just like to see the app help amateurs like me fulfill that potential.
