Shot for my review of the Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition Android Tablet for IBTimes.co.uk.

Here's what I said about the cameras:

The tablet comes with two cameras: a five-megapixel rear snapper that also records up to 720p HD footage and a 1.3-megapixel front camera to handle videoconferencing.
Neither camera is particularly well placed. Putting the front camera at the top right or left corner would have stopped users putting their fingers over it as they hold the middle of the device in portrait mode. It might also sound like a small detail but we would have preferred the secondary camera to be in the centre of the device in landscape mode so we could use that view when video chatting on Skype.
Photos taken with the main camera will be far from spontaneous given the long pause between pressing the onscreen shutter button and the image being captured. It does come with a bright LED flash to perk up night shots, though.
The camera does take its time to adjust to light conditions as you move it around and it struggled slightly as we moved from darker skyscrapers in Canary Wharf to the gaps of sky between them. This was true for both video and still images.
The video function also has no zoom option.
