ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T 32GB Tablet Review
Change of the white balance from auto to a few settings slightly changes the color but not much control. You can change the exposure from -2 darker image for a neutral picture (what the camera see’s to +2 for a brighter image to compensate for the darkness). They are all about the same quality and same graininess; it’s more personal preference really. Here is a good example of the TF700T’s colour reproduction and DOF in good lighting conditions:
ASUS’ website has a lovely photo of the Eiffel tower lit up like a professional camera took it. We took this thing for a late night photo-shoot using the dock as a tripod, the results of which didn’t turn out as great. Any bright light source, such as a street light, will totally overexpose an area and create an ugly glare.
It’s better if you can block the primary light source but that’s almost impossible while taking a night photo since that requires a lot light. The Infinity can still achieve an okay shot as long as your primary light source is behind or above you.
The 2MP camera front-facing camera is nothing amazing, but it’s a huge improvement over the 1.2MP on the Prime (which looked more like a 640×480 display while video calling). The Infinity’s camera still doesn’t look like a 2MP camera to me compared to say a proper webcam. My old 1.2MP HP laptop webcam from 2007 still outperforms it. With that said, the front-facing camera is better for making video calls over Skype or just the occasional snapshot. Just make sure you are properly lit.
Out of all the tablets I’ve played around with including the Transformer Prime and Samsung Note 10.1, the TF700T’s camera does produce the clearest images, especially macro’s, and has the best colour reproduction. This is also the same camera in the TF201T and TF300T. The main difference with the TF700T is that ASUS said they added one extra lens to the camera for better DOF.
