    The camera sucks

    I've been playing with the camera now for 1/2 hour and have yet to get one decent picture. They are horribly pixelated, unfocused (even after I get green lines) and dark.

    UPDATING THIS WITH NEW RESULTS WITH SAMPLE PICTURES
    If you don't want to read the whole thread, this LINK is a good starting point now.

    I AM COPYING THIS FROM MY POST ON PAGE 6 FOR THOSE THAT ARE READING THIS THREAD FOR THE FIRST TIME.
    This was a more fair comparison I did after my original shoot on the first page.


    Ok here is the real test... Taken using a lightbooth, resting the phones on a tripod.

    I took 3 pics with the Droid. One each at 2mp, 3mp and 5mp. Then one shot with the Storm at 3.2mp. All using AUTO for every setting.

    You MUST enlarge the photos by clicking on the header on each to see the real image.

    Droid at 2mp



    Droid at 3mp



    Droid at 5m


    Storm at 3.2mp

    I disagree I've seen many good pictures taken from it. Unless you expect it to take professional pictures then you may not like it but its good from what I have seen. I'm going to get mine in an hour and ill tell if I agree with you then

    Let's all just hope for a software update soon to fix the camera issue.

    That looks like a damn good picture to me. being 5mp doesn't mean it's got the same optics as a regular camera. It's a cell phone camera...

    That picture is awful! The camera made that pretty spring meadow you were taking a picture of look like the parking lot behind a building!

    Seriously, that is kind of typical for a cell phone camera. They don't have the room for all the fancy optics that a regular digital camera has.

    Wink The image looks bad at the full resolution..but..

    The image looks bad at the full resolution..but who ever views a resolution that big.. It's called resize to a smaller resolution it will squeeze the pixels together and you wont even notice it....

    It doesn't look bad when the photo is re-sized.. however the original photo is 2592x1936 and viewing at that res it looks pretty bad..
