Blackberry 10 L-Series device: Camera samples

Wondering what the video and image quality looks when captured using a Blackberry 10 L-series device? Fret not, We’ve got you covered! The initial Blackberry 10 prototype device (Dev Alpha A) which I received few months back had a low-grade camera and it produced bad images, but I was lucky enough to receive the Dev Alpha B, which has the same hardware specifications as the first Blackberry 10 L-series device (called Blackberry Z10), which means the camera hardware in Dev Alpha B is same as the one which will be in the final device (Z10). While the hardware is final, the software my device is running isn’t, so quality may vary when the OS is finalized and released to public on Jan 30th 2013.

Before we dive into the samples, let me outline the camera software features currently available on my device:

Image mode:

  • Switch between front and rear camera
  • Change shooting mode (Normal, Stabilization, Burst)
  • Change scene mode (Auto, Action, Whiteboard, Night, Beach/Snow)
  • Flash (Auto, On, Off)
  • Aspect Ratio (16:9, 4:3)

Video Mode:

  • Switch between front and rear camera
  • Change shooting mode (Normal, Stabilization)
  • Change scene mode (Auto, Night, Beach/Snow)
  • Flash (Always on, Always off)
  • Size (1080p, 720p)

There’s a dedicated flash button too, to turn on/off the flash anytime while recording.

TimeShift Camera Mode

  • Switch between front and rear camera
  • Change scene mode (Auto, Action, Whiteboard, Night, Beach/Snow)
  • Aspect Ratio (16:9, 4:3)

You can also edit the photos after clicking them, like adding a filter, cropping out unnecessary parts, altering brightness/contrast, etc.

The following images and videos will give you an idea about how the camera performs.  None of the images or videos have been digitally altered. All camera settings were set to default.

Without Flash, natural lighting

Image quality looks pretty great. Nothing spectacular though. Some grain and slight loss of sharpness noticeable, but I guess that’s just a software issue (you know, it’s beta!)

Video quality looks great too and the sound is clear. Video size was pretty big (232MB for 2 minutes, 1080p, MP4). Looks like you will need to compress it before uploading long videos.

I will be uploading more pics and video samples when the final update is released for my Dev Alpha B and also when I get my hands on the Z10!
