This week, we got our first look at what the Surface Duo's camera can do thanks to an Instagram photo shared by Windows and Microsoft hardware chief Panos Panay. Because we've heard so little about its capabilities, the Surface Duo's camera has been a hot topic of discussion since the phone debuted in late 2019. So we were wondering, what do you think of what we've seen so far?

There are some big caveats to keep in mind here, of course. First, this is only a single photo, so it's not an ideal way to judge the full capabilities of the camera. We'll have to wait for review samples to come out once Duo is on the market. Likewise, the photo was posted to Instagram, which is notorious for hitting photo quality because of its compression.

Still, if you've been waiting for just a taste of what the camera is capable of, this is what we have to work with for now. So, how do you feel about what we've seen so far? Vote in our poll, and let us know more in the comments.

As an early adopter, I really don't care if Surface Duo's camera is bad. Here's why.
