Candid Camera: Does Hero Need a Flash?
The vast majority of people wish that Sprint’s Hero had a flash. While a flash would be a nice addition, I don’t think it’s really all that necessary. I mean, who really takes that many pictures in pitch dark? Let’s focus on the real area of concern… low light.
Low light, itself, doesn’t seem to be too much of a problem. The Hero seems to handle it fairly well, though the color won’t be anything to write home about. The problem from low light really rears its ugly head when autofocus isn’t used. This can make for a really blurry picture. Case in point…
Here’s a picture without autofocus.
Here’s the same picture with autofocus. See a difference?
Even the color improves when autofocus is used. Not too shabby.
What are your experiences with the Hero? Do you think the omission of a flash was a bad move, or does the camera do fine without it? If you’re using a different Android phone, how does its camera compare to the Hero’s in low light? Lemme know…
