Engadget have been one of the lucky few to actually get a video sample directly from the HTC Titan IIâ€™s camera and have uploaded this excerpt.
Myriam Joire, their phone camera expert, was quite impressed with the 16 megapixel shooter. She notes:
After spending some quality time with HTC’s latest Windows Phone flagship we came away pretty impressed with the camera. Our test shots contain tons of detail, with accurate colors and very little noise. We left the handset in the default "Intelligent Auto" scene mode for the majority of our pictures, and it handled the varying conditions with aplomb. Exposure was particularly well balanced, despite difficult lighting condition.
The ability of the camera to manage different lighting conditions is well illustrated in the video above (which should be watched in HD) as the camera pans from lighter to darker areas, but overall of course it is still a brightly lit Las Vegas scene.
What is however somewhat disappointing is what still appears to be a low frame rate and jitters, especially when the camera is being managed via a specialized image processing chip with image stabilization. Hopefully it is simply a case that these features were not activated.
