    I turned my MP for 5 down to 3 and it helps with the speed for now, plus 3 is plenty. I've been happy with it.

    I did not see anybody mention this, and I don't know if you found it yet but taping on the vertical bar on the left allows you to make some changes. Like picture size and quality, along with white balance and focus mode.

    I have read that there has been an issue with some of the Droids camera. Maybe your was the last one made on a Friday!!

    ive took a few photos and most come out pretty good, u have to hold pretty still to get it to be decent, and the flash doesnt work all that great but its still a good camera for a cell phone.

    Wow, were people expecting digital camera quality shots from a phone?? It's a cell phone, its not for taking prize photographs of your favorite bird in a beautiful landscape. It's for popping quick shots @ parties and events for quick viewing later. If the massive resolution is an issue, tone down the resolution in the settings, I'm sure there is a way to shoot pictures at 1024X768 or even 800X600. This will correct some of the pixilation on full screen views.

    Agreed. Biggest thing is that the resolution is to big at 5MP. I have not seen anyway to change the resolution when you shoot the pictures. For what it is, it will get the job done. I think it will come in handy if I am out and about and my DSLR is not with me.

    I just said a little big ago that I set mine to 3MP instead of 5 lol. When you are in the camera, click the grey bar to the left. It will open a menu with options. Go to Picture size and you can choose 3MP or 2MP which I have found increases the speed quite a bit and the pics still look good, especially if you are just texting them or uploading to a blog or something. Example, take this dirty keyboard test. This was taken with my Droid a little bit ago. it is 2MP and I think I had Focus Mode set to Macro. Either that or Auto.

    I think it is focusing around the left side of the 4 key but I'm not sure.

    That's actually not the best example, when I uploaded it to Flickr, it got resized. Found that out when I uploaded a 5mp sample and it was smaller than the 2mp one lol

    I am pretty sure most of the pictures people will be taking from their Droid are going to be e-mailed or uploaded to facebook/myspace/twitter. The only issue I see with the camera is the auto focus feature and Verizon/Motorola/Google already are working on a fix.
