    Driving in to work today I passed an uprooted tree - we've been blasted here on the Jersey Shore the last couple of days with heavy rains, flooding and very high winds. Here's a shot using my Droid "always with me camera" on the trip in to work this morning. Gotta love the high quality shots it takes! :) mike

    I agree, it was the only "camera" I brought with Washington DC last week with me. I got amazing shots and videos.

    Not that I found. nor would I want pictures of him... Although if I saw him I would have gotten a few shots....

    I'm at work, but give me a few minutes to find them on my droid and I'll post a couple.

    *EDIT* Here are a few pictures. All with my droid :)

    This thread will soon be swarmed with the "droid camera sucks" crowd that migrates to every picture thread on these forums and mentions the few terms they learned in their high school photography classes and how the droid camera does nothing their SLR does.

    P.S. Love the shots.

    Thanks for posting those. Some very memorable shots indeed! The graveyard monuments are very somber - my hat's off in respect to all those who have served and fallen... mike

    Nice shots.

    I have been very impressed with the Droid's camera so far. Incredibly clear, in my opinion.

    Great shots. Love the flame capture at the memorial grave site. Did you have to make any adjustments to the camera or just point n shoot?

    Is there a way to make the camera any faster? Seems like I click and then whatever I was taking a picture of moves, and then the picture snaps :/

    :D :icon_ devil: ;)

    (Sorry, I couldn't resist. However, I will point out that I didn't learn the terms in high school. I actually went to college with photography as my major).

    And in actuality is not "droid camera sucks" as much as the person using it. :D I haven't had issues with the inphone camera at all.

    There are some nice photos in this thread.

    I just remembered.

    Anyone here using Flickr for showing off their photos? They actually have a Droid Group!

    Check it out if you want to. There are some amazing shots there.

    We had a wonderful winter here in Ohio and my Droid came in handy at work one day. :)

    WOW!!! Very Nice pictures! I for one have never had any issue with my Droid camera either, takes great shots, and even better video.

    Dr01d - I agree - those are beautiful! Somewhere on these forums I posted pix very similar. Forget where we had a thread going on winter snow scenes.

    Ohio looks just like Jersey in the snow! ;) mikey

    I have a Canon S5 Is that I used to carry with me all the time for work and other photos but since i got the Droid I find myself relying on the Canon less and less. Matter of fact the Droid made me realize how poor the quality of the photos the Canon takes are and I'll be sending it back for service with a complaint.
    I post a lot of photos on the web and I really like that I can set the camera to auto upload to my Photobucket account.

    Some shots from this winter...

    As a camera, the Droid works quite well.

    It's not a digital SLR, and won't have the quality, or the flexibility of say, even a Fuji S200FS... but, as a 5MP point and shoot? The Droid's camera works great. I have used it on a few occasions. I used to bring my camera bag with me all of the time, now, I just use the Droid for those "grab" shots if I come across something interesting.
