More than I can review. ;)
My Galaxy SII has a pin head opening on the camera.
Still it takes so much better picture than my dashcam.
Granted my dashcam is el cheapo but it does have bigger lens/hole as well as decent size sensor when I opened it.
Here is from the dashcam:

And here is from the Galaxy SII:
There is simply no comparison. :confused:

What was...
- video recording resolution
- bit-rate
- FPS ( frames per second )
- lens aperture ( F )
... of C600 and Galaxy S2 you were recording videos for comparison.

If you dont know answers, please share raw / original video files and one photo made by each device, I will inspect and tell you answer.

The above samples are from picture mode, not video.
I've used SII as dashcam as well and video is way better but I don't have those videos at the moment.
