    Is it me or does the Incredible take Incredibly bad photos?

    I don't think I have the ability to hold the camera steady which makes things difficult enough but even when I do, the image doesn't seem that great.

    I have it set to 8mpx.

    Any suggestions or is this it?

    Thanks!
    Paul

    The picture quality exceeds my expectations, especially for a phone. I was never one to be the one shooting pictures on a real camera so I honestly can't compare it to a traditional digital camera.

    However what I did notice from my original droid is the ability to focus. The Inc doesn't seem to focus as long as the Droid...or at least I haven't figured it out yet.

    I'm sure you know but just incase, you can tap the screen on the area your wanting it to focus on for a better focus.

    I used to have an issue with taking pictures with the incredible as well. I got used to it and now the pictures look great. As was mentioned above you can tap on the area you are trying to focus on.

    No I wasn't aware of this. Show how much i use the camera huh? lol.

    When I do need to snap a quick shot this will help big time, thanks!

    edit: i knew the droid could since it has a dedicated camera button, didn't know how to make it focus manually on the Incredible though. Thanks again

    My wife has an incredible and whenever I need to snap a quick pic I find myself reaching for her phone as opposed to my D1 (which everyone knows has a pretty crappy camera) I really like the photo quality I get out of the incredible.

    I found that it takes great photos, as long as I'm sure my hands are steady and I try to press the button very gently so I don't move the phone.

    HTC cameras have sucked for a long time. That said, this one is a little better than the one on my old Touch Pro 2. I do wish I had more control over the flash (or maybe I need to use it more and figure it out).

    But when I really want/ plan to take pictures, I take my dSLR.

    Not only is this a useful bit of knowledge for focus, but touching and holding the screen for a couple of seconds at that spot will snap the picture. I found my problem was that I couldn't hold the phone steady while pressing the optical mouse button to snap a pic.

    Once somebody told me to long press on the screen to snap a pic, no more blurry photos from my own movement.
