    As a SLR owner, I would like manual control over the camera on the droid.

    Can any devs or anyone else tell me if this is possible with the droid camera?

    Assuming someone can code, can software give us shutter/aperature/iso configuration?

    I'm really not trying to be a smart but but it's just a phone not a camera
    thats asking a lot
    I'm a photographer and I think it's pretty wild what my phone can do = pics, and video
    actually pretty good for a phone

    Actually it's not pretty good for a 2010 camera phone , specially when it's presented as a big selling point , go pick any other phone and check the camera . You can adjust the ISO , shutter , exposure , take panoramic pictures using the accelerometer , smile detection , antishake , take pictures in the dark etc.

    i'm just happy they gave us an exposure option. at least that way you can kind of trick the shutter speed up or down.

    Exactly, I know it doesn't compare to my 85mm 1.8 lens, but damn, give me some more control.

    Again, for the devs, can this level of control be coded?

    I agree I would pay a decent chunk of change for an app that let me control the ISO, shutter and aputure even though i'm pretty the apeture on most android models is fixed.

    You can use exposure compensation to cheat it a little but you can't do long exposures or anything.

    The camera on most droid phones is pretty bad compared to an iphone.

    Android needs to focus less on the size of the images and more on the quality. I don't need an 11mp camera i'd rather have a smaller file and better sensor in the phone.
