Re: Testing GRam and Camera
Yeah, that doesn't sound right at all. I just shot a video of my wife outdoors and the clarity and color were just gorgeous. You can try using the HDR function and see if that helps, but you definitely shouldn't be getting consistently washed out pictures. Also try lowering the exposure with the 'brightness' control and see if that helps. If none of this works, I'd swap it out for another unit.
I should mention that exposure on all of these cellphone cameras can be tricky. They are definitely more prone to blowout with their tiny sensors. So you should be aware of things like the sun protruding into the field of view.
