Asus Transformer Pad Infinity review

The Transformer range is back to take on the iPad

Our Verdict

Asus has crafted the definitive hybrid. A stunning screen, Tegra 3 power and excellent keyboard are all reasons to buy.

Asus has installed two cameras on the Transformer Pad Infinity. The first is a front-facing 2MP camera that you can use with Skype or similar apps for video chatting with friends and family.

The second is a rear-facing 8MP camera that does a good job of matching your typical smartphone snapper, although we still feel you look slightly odd standing up and taking pictures with a 10.1-inch tablet.

Nevertheless, we braved the puzzled stares of onlookers and tested out the functionality of the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity's lens, and the results were pleasantly surprising.

Asus Transformer Pad Infinity review

You're thankfully given a large amount of options to use, and can play with the exposure and the white balance until you find your perfect setting. There are also more universal shooting options, such as switching the ISO and focus mode.

You can adjust the camera to suit your shooting environment via scene mode, so if you're tying to capture images in low light you can use the night setting. Or, for moving targets you can opt for the action setting.

There's no option for black and white or sepia photographs, so if you want that retro Instagram-type look, you'll need to find it from the Google Play store.

If you shoot in a 4:3 aspect ratio, you can take advantage of the 8MP lens, although if you opt for the 16:9 widescreen format you're going to be limited to 6MP. Even so, shooting with tablets is less about megapixels and more about the quality of the lens.

We found the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity shot clean, crisp images, and reproduced colour balance well. Unfortunately, it did nothing to stop us looking a tad ridiculous while out taking said pictures.
