Camera Quality

Similar to the TF Pad 300, the Infinity comes with an 8MP rear facing camera (F2.2 aperture, 3264 x 2448 capture resolution). For the first time, ASUS also ships a 2MP front facing camera as well (F2.8 aperture, 1920 x 1080 capture resolution).

Image quality out of the rear facing camera is comparable to what the Prime produced, despite the new sensor and lens setup. The gallery below has a bunch of shots showing what the rear camera is capable of. Overall the image quality isn't all that impressive at native res as most shots end up looking overexposed or washed out. When scaled down to web resolutions the camera's output is definitely passable for emailing or sharing though.

The camera app's built in panorama mode is very easy to use and produces reasonable results:

The front facing camera similarly delivers acceptable quality, but mostly if you scale it down below its captured resolution:

Video capture quality is ok as well. The rear camera will record in 1080p at just under 20Mbps using H.264 baseline profile, although again you'll really want to view video at a lower resolution for it to look good:

    ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity - 1080p + 1.6Ghz->1.3Ghz Tegra 3 + Windows RT + Touch Cover = $599 Surface RT starting price. Reply

    Yeah, except you get a 1366x768 screen and a lack of apps. Plus you have to wait three months for it. Plus the touch cover doesn't have an extra battery. Plus how are you going to use the kickstand+touch cover on your lap?

    Give it up, the Surface is a crap product, especially Surface Pro. A tablet is neither a PC nor a laptop, and Microsoft doesn't seem to understand that.

    Microsoft understands perfectly that a tablet can both be a PC and a laptop. Reply

    You can buy such tablets already: Asus EEE EP121, Samsung Series 7 Slate. Also the future Win 8 tablets, which are both a PC, laptop and tablet will cost twice as much as the TF700.

    WinRT won't be a laptop replacement, rather an inferor iPad clone, which won't give you any advantage, especially not compared to Android.

    You may the way they understood that the SAME Windows could work just as well on a tablet and a PC (dating all the way back to 1987 and the Go tablet business)?
    You mean the same way they understood that the same Windows UI could work on a phone, through all the different naming iterations of WIndows CE/Windows Mobile?

    I think let's believe it when we see it. Right now what I see is that the fraction of people who LIKE Windows 8 as a PC OS is pretty damn small, which suggests a fundamental flaw in your theory.

    Really? So no one likes w8 despite the fact it isn't even on sale yet?

    So you think because a company releases a poor product many moons ago.. that obviously means every product will be poor from that point onwards...

    Windows 8 has been out in beta and RC phases for quite some time now. No rave reviews by anybody other than fanbois wearing blue e t-shirts and paid bloggers. Reply

    Anecdotally...

    A software developer just paid me $40 to downgrade their Microsoft BUILD conference slate from Win8 DP (developer's preview) to Windows 7. This is the prototype for the Samsung Series 7 Slate, released to encourage Win8 developers. Not a good sign.

    They encountered driver issues (will be fixed by Win8 release) and found the workflow very unpleasant (which will not!)

    I played with 8 for a while first. Ugly, ugly operating system. The desktop feels gimped, because the start button returns you to Metro. I don't care about the missing start menu, but Metro isn't useful enough by itself, forcing me to the Desktop for real work - and several operations on the Desktop take you back to Metro :-(

    Also, IE for Metro is completely unusable.

    Windows8 totally BLOWS chunks. Anyone who I know in RL who has used Windows8 on the desktop think its SUCKS.

    I used it... it sucks. I'll go WindowsXP before I deal with Windows8.

    Vista sucked because it was buggy garbage...Win8 sucks because its a crappy UI design.
