    I'm embarassed to say this, but most of my camera phone pictures are meant to be viewed on Facebook or similar social networking sites, so they'll be automatically resized that way anyway. I'm not planning on taking any desktop wallpaper pictures with my camera phone any time soon. ;)

    Does any of your phones make a clicking sounds when you first start the camera? I'm not talking about when you're focusing....just when you first start it up.

    i've seen a few suggestions as what to do for the camera and wanted to chime in with my own findings. if you set your camera to do inifinity focus, you won't have problems taking "in focus" pictures.

    I am actually a bit disappointed that there aren't many settings to work with on the Droid. I have the LG Dare which had more settings, including lighting, face scan, etc. It took very good pictures for a 3.2MP camera. I was hoping to get just the same features and more for the 5MP Droid camera. The video recorder is excellent! And from what I am reading, this is all software related, which keeps me optimistic that there will be software to utilize the camera.

    I agree with you because I own a Dare and it does take excellent pix!

    Yeah, I used to have a Dare also, the camera is what I missed most when I got rid of it to get my Curve.

    This is an excellent comparison. With the exception of the lighting, which isn't a big deal, your 3.2MP Storm clearly takes better pictures than any of the Droid pix at any MP setting. My LG Dare took pictures just as good as your Storm.

    I am having similar issues as most regarding the auto focusing not working like it should, the odd noises and delay it takes for the camera to boot up or take another pic, etc.

    While I didn't really buy the phone for it's camera, with all the things it can do, and upgrading from the 3.2 Dare, I expected the camera to be just as good or better. I hope this December 11th update helps improve the camera issue.

    Here is a pic I took of the dirty golf cart steering wheel. It took a few half-presses to get green corners. Doesn't look too bad.

    I tried this and EVERY pic I took was out of focus. What infinity focus does is try to focus as far away as possible so if you are shooting scenery, sunset, and other things that are far away then it will look good but anything semi-close will be blurry.
