    Just bought it, what a great app! I can already see the improvement in the couple low-light pics I took. I'll be testing this out a lot in the coming days.

    I just got the Pro Zoom Camera 5X paid version and I am liking it. But, what are the max file size of your pics? I changed the settings to max for everything and the largest image I get is about 300k. Am I missing some setting? What is the max file size you are getting? Should be larger right?

    I thought 2.1 was supposed to fix the camera issues... may as well wait.

    300k is the file size, that's not how mp are measured. It's measured by
    pixel height x width. Mine are coming out 2592x1036 (5,018,122) which is 5 MP.


    I have mine set to maximum quality

    • Jpeg quality to Max
    • Camera Resolution to Maximum Possible
    Although, Compared to the default camera Pro5x is getting on average 1/3 the file size of the default camera i.e. Pro5x 358k, Default Camera 979k. I assume this is compression when saving the file. This tends to loose details. I will have to try this out in the daylight

    Hmmm, this is really interesting. I guess if we weren't so close to the 2.1 release I'd jump on it right now. But I'd hate to buy an app only to find out the same thing is offered for free in 2.1.

    Do we know if the camera is being addressed by the update?

    purchased the app and took a few test pictures... mostly indoor/low-light shots (since that is where the droid camera falls short)

    Not much of a difference AT ALL in low-light pictures. There might slight improvement, but only if you sit and compare the pictures for about 5 minutes. Maybe this app does take better pictures outside and has more settings to mess with.... buuuuttt, its just not what exactly what I'm looking for :(

    uninstall- I didnt find any improvement. I compared at 100% in photoshop so i could see them side by side.

    The zoom is just digital, any photo editor can zoom and prolly do a better job.

    we really shouldn't be paying for a functional camera, that's what the $200 I gave was for


    hopefully 2.1 fixes that p.o.s. camera
