The Optimus L9’s 5 megapixel camera produced acceptable but not particularly good results. At full resolution details are fuzzy, but color reproduction is fairly accurate. Outdoor images turned out better than our indoor samples, where even in strong light the images turned out grainy. The results are fine for Facebook and other sharing services, but the camera is definitely a bit of a disappointment. It is capable of recording 1080p video which turned out fairly well, though background noise could be overwhelming. Like the camera, the camcorder lacks detail but at least is able to keep up with moving objects fairly well.
