    Agreed, but on the other hand I noticed it often looks more natural than pics from other cameras that give the nice fully saturated colors.

    As you know, we all put polarizers on our lenses to make it look "better" than natural, but I do agree, there is a little too much while light that gets in the lens... not sure why, but again, a software issue.

    Based on the clarity I see, I think we have the hardware nailed down.

    Well, unlike the picture ability, videos taken on the Droid seem to be of higher quality. I submit the below file taken through the windshield in a moving vehicle as proof!

    This and the auto-focus problem are both most likely going to be addressed in the software update on the 11th of December. The hardware with the exception of a few people is just fine.

    That video is awesome... I think if the video is that nice then the photo issue has to be software. Obviously the hardware can take that great video.

    Yeah Im thinking my Storm took a little better pics and it was only 3.2. That doesnt bother me so much...what does bother me is the fact that the flash doesnt come on when you're in record mode. That storm's flash came on and acted like a light when you recorded in dark conditions. I miss that function....boy oh boy am I gonna miss that function.

    Head to head, no retouch, no compression*EDIT* photo shootout between the Omnia and the Droid.

    I didn't catch which camera "or phone" was used on each pic?

    Point well taken as my wife already noted to me as well. :)

    I edited my posts to make it clearer which pic was taken with which phone.

    I am going to do a more fair comparison as soon as time permits.

    In my post, the Droid was the white car, or the one in the quotation box. The other two were the Samsung Omnia. They were resized to 800X600 due to Photobucket uploading. I am really pleased with the photos and photo options available with the Omnia. The camera is the only reason I say I "like" this phone. What say you about the camera on the Droid? Is it comparable to the Omnia as far as the abilities in photo snapping? (In reference to effects, and photo options like: Panorama, and multishot)

    On the storm, the flash acts as a light for recording in the dark. Is this something can be added to the DROID via an update or should I just get a flashlight tape it to the side when I need to record in the dark?

    I've taken great pictures with it. IDK why it would be pixelated for you and not me. Even reviewers said it took great pictures.
