    I thought this was the worst smartphone pictures I've seen, then I just now left the techinical expertise who said "those are the worst pictures I've ever seen, that camera is a joke and they have to come out with a filmware and not take this seriously." !!!
    I'm going to upload them.
    Out of focus, lighting sucks, I've done everything from brightness settings to try to change the MB and you can't!!! No switching it to 5 MB, etc. And you can't push and hold and it take a picture to manually focus!
    MOTOROLA DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!!
    No only am I about to downgrade and sacrifice the little things (beside duel core processor, HD video, laptop dock) like 4G by getting the Incredible 2 (but I had an incredible 1) but I'm about to switch to sprint (and suffer slower 4G speeds) and get the Photon 4G.
    The NEWEST latest and greatest smartphone can't even do the simple things we need (which is essential before the want)!
    (I won't even upload the Iphone (only 5MB) same pictures I took which blew these away.)

    No, it's not a phone or Motorola issue, it's filmware. They need to do an update, redesign, something. The sales rep says there's no problem with the Photon 4G. Why won't it let me upload pics? Just get the spinning hourglass forever. Just WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE THESE HORRIBLE PICS! I'm telling you, the technical expertise couldn't believe it.

    Why don't you try a different camera app then? You title the thread that the Bionic camera sucks but if you know it's a firmware issue, there are ways around that....

    What exactly is a "technical expertise"?

    Already folks on another forum said Vignette helps it take better low light pics. Until yesterday I had no idea a camera app could do that. I thought camrea apps were only for effects an whatnot. Trying a camera app might actually help.

    Aside from the "filmware" issue I have to agree the pictures are horribly grainy and utterly worthless if you intend to show any kind of detail.

    I haven't seen a decent picture come from a cellphone since my LG Dare, so I wouldn't be surprised it sucks on the Bionic as well.

    Somebody from Motorola should contact these guys Altus-Tech , Primax or Lite On , they make the camera for the iPhone for only $9.55 , we are talking about few extra cents , I would gladly pay $10-$20 extra for a main feature such as the camera if it was better . The camera on the Bionic was one of the main reasons I decided to wait for the Prime
