    I picked up my DROID on the 18th so I missed out on the 'secret' camera fix. LOL. Snapping pics is a lil slow.... but as New2u said if you set the MP to 3 instead of 5 you gain some quickness. I'm actually very happy with the camera.

    arg this tiks me off about the droid. people what is the point of having 5MP if you are going to set it to 3MP like the iphone has? part of the "DroidDoes" is 5MP not 3MP so we should be able to use it as is without a super long refresh lag!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    like i said you have to take pictures in good lighting, like the sunlight (lol) in order to get good pics with most camera phones.

    Chudilo makes a valid point:

    Here's a creepy photo of my toddler, and she does NOT look like this. Droid is set to high resolution, but this is proof of the lag time on the phone's camera. She was just sitting there, and then suddenly decided to move. I had pressed the button before she moved, and that pic would have been sweet. Look at this monstrosity...

    Not my baby... the blur of me catching her on the Droid.

    Maybe I've just got bad eyesight, but I could not find the EDIT button to edit my remark here.

    I don't understand the comment about "getting a faster SD card". I took this photo with the card that came WITH my Droid... does this mean that Motorola is shipping out crappy cards with this pricey equipment?

    Also, why wouldn't they have provided an adaptor card - as a courtesy?

    Is this true? I mean, I know you are joking about the period thing, but why would the Droid work fine for 24.5 days - and then not work optimally for the next 24.5 days?

    That is absolutely unacceptable.

    Yes it is true, not going to get into all the details, but read the camera fix thread and about the upcoming patch thread, the patch release should fix this though before it gets into its "cycle" again. lol

    I am not big into photography so I don't know what most are talking about
    but this looks ok to me and way better than any of my older cameras

    Unacceptable? It's a bug. Every electronic device has them upon shipment, expect it. In this case they may or may not have identified it before shipping. It would have been nice if they had acknowledged it as soon as identified. Still, they have announced their intention to patch and have set a schedule that should keep us from having to deal with the camera problem again.

    Many manufacturers never acknowledge bugs, won't commit to fixing them, and some leave bugs as incentive to move up to the next model where it will be fixed. Palm vehemently avoided commenting on bugs, promised patches but delayed them until many users had moved on, failed to patch the really critical bugs, and patches that did come out tended to brick their phones. Fail.

    We'll see how Moto does but so far they seem responsive.
