Photography: Can One X Challenge DSLRsPhotos, lots of photos. That’s what you will take with the HTC One X, I certainly did. Here are video and photo samples. None of these photos was taken particularly well, so your results should be similar. I consider the video and photos of the dragon boat races to be particularly challenging and I hope you appreciate the work this little camera had to do. Responsiveness is super-fast, and while quantifiable I thought you might be more interested in seeing the results. Auto focus speed is so fast I spent most of my time convinced it simply wasn't focusing. You can judge by the results. The One X performance image enhancement automatically in default mode and I let that stand, using the Feeling Lucky button in Picasa to see if it did anything for the Galaxy SII photos.

We decided to see just how well can One X fare against the E420 digital SLR camera equipped with the stock Zuiko lens, 14-42mm. The results will be surprising, but we'll leave all the conclusions for yourself. First off, we start with the Olympus DSLR camera:Olympus E420 image, resized to 689x517 pixels. No post-edit
