    I have been trying to use my Droid as my primary camera but have not beenpleased with the results. Pics tend to be grainy and fuzzy. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE my Droid. I would just like to be able to take better photos.

    So, any suggestions? I have been leaving it on fully automatic settings.

    Turn on lots of lights and that will eliminate the noise. This is not a good low light camera.

    Have you tried any other camera apps like Camera ICS, CameraZoom FX, HDR Camera, or Camera360?

    None of them will work miracles, but each can somewhat produce better shots than the stock app. I've found Camera ICS to be the most consistent for my uses, while HDR Camera is a lot of fun for high contrast shots (particularly outdoors).

    The camera on the RAZR isn't anything special compared to the cameras that most high-end smartphones are sporting now. It's not awful, but it's certainly not all that great. As others have said, if you can get a lot of light, and are able to hold the phone very still, you can end up with some above average shots.

    I still think it's a good camera, though, and probably better than 70% of other smartphone cameras, at least. You just need to learn its strengths and weaknesses.

    Bsweetness is right. You should try CameraICS.

    I use it, and it gives the best and most consistent results.

    Ok, so I should not consider it in the same league as my Nikon S7100.. I'm fine with that; just wanted to ask.

    I will have to check out the other camera apps... would never have thought of that

    Oh, absolutely not. I don't think any phone camera would be capable of that quality. But, the Razr can take some awesome pictures. I do think using an app like camera ICS or HDR camera helps. Also holding your hand steady while taking your shot. Check out this thread to see what the Razr is capable of.

    Thanks! I will check that out. Again, I am absolutely thrilled with my Razr and am just looking to improve it.

    I know I am of no help here, Ive tried all the camera apps on the Maxx and have yet to find one that will work as good as the camera on my Rezound. While I used my Rezound my Nikon stayed home.
    If Moto could get a lense like the ones HTC uses, the Maxx would truly be the perfect phone!

    Yeah, I agree Malissa...my son's Rezound does take some nice pics. I thought it was just because he was better at it than I.

    Weird. My camera is awesome. Sometimes some grainy photos but on because of the detail.
