    2.1 and Android Camera

    Just curious if they made any updates for the camera for the droid? I actually love the camera, but one thing that drives me INSANE is how long the damn thing takes to load up and how long it takes to actually take the picture, it is so laggy!!!

    Update 2.0.1 should have fixed that issue.

    The autofocus was definitely fixed but the camera is still slow as hell with starting up and navigating around.

    Seems about as slow as the average P&S to me. It's not and never will be an SLR.

    Get a faster sd card or lower the camera settings to 3mp.

    Sounds like you're a digital SLR owner, as they tend to look down their noses at P&S cameras. The fact is, there is no "average" P&S anymore. Some of them are lightening quick for dirt cheap.
    The Droids hardware is capable of much better performance than we're getting. -Not "lightening quick P&S" performance mind you, but far better than what it is now. I have a wide variety of cameras, and even some of my simple surveillance cams can take higher quality photos with faster response times at lower resolutions than the Droids current software allows it to.

    Yeah that is sort of what I was getting at. I am not one of those droid complainers that wants the droid to be a 24 mp camera + high def camera + warp drive, but you are absolutely right, it is capable of more. I am not really concerned about the hardware, it is the software that is frustrating me. It is very laggy and slow and I can never seem to get it out and get spontaneous pictures in a reasonable amount of time.

    It's too bad. A 3.2 MP that takes fantastic shots is very doable, and for smart folks that are into this particular smart phone, the 5MP braggin' rights aren't worth a damned. But this is what happens when it's called an "iPhone killer" even before it's released.

    ...Anyone know where we can get specsw on the actual camera hardware? Is the 5MP 'real', or interpolated?

    Sorry folks, I have a DSLR yes, but will also say that this camera is very slow compared to other phones. I am not talking about comparing it to my DSLR, but I can take a photo with my wifes Tour or my Daughters IPhone and it is much quicker to get up and ready for another shot. Besides, this camera bites in low light compared to other cameras. Don't get me wrong...I love my Droid, but for Motorola to brag about a 5mp (Droid does) camera and then have this....not very smart.
