I really wish video was better with the phone. WHEN working the video is amazing, but in the middle of my videos it will break up and artifact and totally RUIN my video I have NOT had 1 video that turned out good FML.
I took a pic for buzz yeterday and I actually was shocked how well it turned out, in low light even:
Reg cam, reg software on droid
I hate to say this but my old 3MP iPhone and my brother's BB take better pictures than this. I tried the 5X ZOOM software and my results were even worse, with noticeable blotchies in all the pictures. There is a lot of detail in the pictures from 5MP but the color and reproduction of the area looks like crap... seriously.
My Samsung Propel had a brightness feature, I was surprised the droid didn't at least have that. Its a slider, and just as thin if not thinner.
Also, what was all that with the 24.5 day focus cycle? Sounds like most of these are software issues.

The physical camera isn't great, and the stock software downright sucks.
However, go to the Market and download Vignette. I've tried a bunch of camera apps, and Vignette is by far the best. It's something like 2.60 USD, and well worth it. If you change the settings to 3.1 MP, you'll get some amazing results.
