    Anyone else play with the camera yet?

    I just played around with the camera for a few and it seems that they have cleaned up the camera.

    The user interface is different and easier to use.

    Also the images seem to be a bit less noisy.

    Edit: links to full size images I just took

    Nice pictures! Are you in California? Reminds me of when I lived in San Jose in the 90s. Also, you list an Omnia in your profile still.

    SO 2.2 no one has officially yet? Incredible, I thought was 2.2?

    I just got the ally, installed a couple things. I actually really like it.. I am a fan of the keyboard.. the only reason I didn't go with the incredible, and the battery is definitely better. My good friend I was with all day, we do basically the same thing on our phones, and I had 62% when he had 37%.

    Hopefully LG keeps up and updates when it's out.

    When it is released, will my phone just download it automatically or what?

    Not that I have noticed. Might be some internal tweaks though.

    My parents live in Casa Grande. But, they high tailed it out of there about a month ago and will be at our place in PA on Monday night. I see you changed your profile to Droid! (lol).

    I saw the one photo without flash, but couldn't judge how dark the original location was. Are low-light photos still real fuzzy/noisy?

    I played with Froyo today, but I forgot to play with the camera before I went back to JRummy's Rom. It makes me want to go back to Froyo to do some before and after pics, just to see how much the camera has improved.

    Is it faster? I'm tired of how long it takes to get the camera to the point of actually being able to capture a picture on this thing. My 4yr old Nokia E71 was substantially faster from launch to taking a picture and wasn't half of the hardware that this phone has. Seems the software could make things happen a little bit quicker. It actually took better quality pictures too with a fraction of the MP that this camera has as well. What I'm getting at is this camera has been a huge letdown since day one for me. I hope they finally address it.

    Wow the pictures do seem a lot nicer than what my Droid usually produces. I have 2.2 right now, I should test the camera out a bit more. Thanks for the heads up!
    One thing I noticed is that when you click the small picture up in the corner, it goes straight to the gallery instead of that half-ass "tap left or right to change pics" thing that was built into the camera app.

    Also my 2.2 gallery took forever to load all the thumbnails but once it was done it is like 500% faster!
    Smart people. I'm in Tucson and it hit 103 today :icon_eek:
