    For those of you that have the incredible how well does the camera work? my droids camera takes good pics in optimum lighting conditions, but in anything less that perfect light the camera is subpar. How does the camera work in different lighting conditions on the incredible, especially in low light where there is a little movement?

    i took a pic in the dark and it came out very nice.. the flash worked well. ill upload it in a few.

    i like the camera and its app to use it much better than the D.. lots of setting to fiddle with.

    Incredible > Droid x10

    Had the Droid since the release date and I was never pleased with the picture quality in low-light scenarios. So Got my Incredible yesterday and decided to start taking low-light pictures just to test (with flash, with no flash, less light, more light, etc.)

    I have to say; not only is the default camera application much nicer to use on the Incredible, but the picture quality blows the Droid out of the water, in BOTH low-light and good-light conditions

    I would post pics to compare... but my current Droid is without an SD card... hhmmm, I wonder where those 16gb went :D

    I have just started playing with the camera. This 8 megapixel camera has all the settings of a high quality camera. For a very low light scene, then you can set the camera to the highest ISO setting which is an amazing 1250. You have ISO auto, 100, 200, 400, 800, and 1250. Also, you have contrast, sharp, bright, saturation, sepia, grayscale, negative, polarize, posterize, and solarize.

    The camera is set to auto when you receive the HTC, you can set the camera's to your needs. I will try to take some nice pics and post them. :)

    The Guy,

    The ISO measures the speed of light. In the bright sun, you can use ISO 100 and in the darkest settings without flash, you can try ISO 1250. I am still experimenting myself. When using a high ISO of 800 or 1250, you may need a tripod for proper focus or a docking stand.

    I need to read some sites on photography myself. Here is one I am reading on ISO.

    What is ISO on your digital camera, how to use ISO settings

    Oh, when using the flash, that is really using a lot of your battery., ouch. I am going to buy a spare battery, like right now ! :icon_eek:

    The Inc camera kicks major butt
    very fast n smooth and pics even in low light look really good
    in good lighting they are bad a**, better than my 500$ kodak digital camera

    I agree.. the software is far superior both in using the camera as well as viewing the pics once you have them as the gallery on the basic 2.1 moto is pretty sad now.

    The portal or "aperature" that allows light in is much bigger as well as the lens itself which makes the job for the electronics much easier.....

    Its a camera folks... light is a good thing....
    For those of you who still have your droid moto, carefully compare the lens and size of the two.

    I found indoors or poor lighting just open settings and slide the brightness
    level down to zero and it takes good pic without over flashing the subject
