    As it's been stated, there will be a software update for the camera soon. Until then, I've been doinking around with Camera 360 and Vignette (demo). Another I've heard mentioned in the forums is Camera Zoom. My intent is to wait for the update and see what it does for the stock software. If I'm still not happy, I'll buy an app that works best for me.

    Just download a couple free demos and play around with each one. See which one works best for you. Personally, I like the Vignette's ability to let you use your volume button for the shutter. Makes it feel more like a real" camera.

    Take some time and start reading some of the threads in here. There's a lot of good information and suggestions everywhere in this forum.

    See ya around....

    This was just posted on moto forums:

    Thank you for your post moelsen8 and good morning. I'm very happy to see that you realize that it's camera firmware that limits the quality of the camera in certain areas. The good news is that firmware can always be tweaked vs. a hardware issue that would be a major problem, and I'm sure we all hope that the next update will address this area of the Bionic. IMHO, the Bionic camera has the best performance of all of the Motorola Android devices overall that I have tested up to the current time. The flash synchronization is now perfectly timed with shutter sync. The greenish cast that existed in some low-light situations is gone and the detail of objects in the background when photographing landscape type of photos that was missing previously in low-light is noticeably improved, at least on my Bionic and on the tests that I have run on the Bionic thus far. Thanks. --- Dan

    Bought the Bionic yesterday from Costco. Brought it home, charged it, activated it, rooted it, froze unnecessary apps - all in that order. This phone is FAST. So far, here are my thoughts:

    1. The pentile screen isn't anywhere near as bad as I remember it being when I first saw it in the VZW store a month ago. In fact, I can't see the screen door effect at all.

    2. Battery life is not good, but I've been constantly using it so I can't complain. The accessory pack will be here soon with the extra battery so that'll work for me.

    3. I got a few data drops but I can't attribute it to the phone yet. I live only .75 mile from a tower but my house is down in a bowl so I use a network extender (3G only). So far the phone works well with it. I work from home so I'm on WiFi all the time anyway. I think I'll be fine until the OTA update comes out. (For me to pick up the tower I would need an antenna approximately 25 feet above my roof line.)

    4. I am so used to PE 6.5 that I really don't like the stock stuff on the phone. Not nearly as customizable, especially with the stock messaging apps (email, text). I stopped using Handcent back when my OG Droid quit playing nice, but I may go back to it.

    5. Blur is so-so. I don't hate it, but it's not very flexible at all.

    After the OTA fix comes over I may do some more messing around with it. I'll probably wait for ICS before I ROM this thing. Overall this is a really nice phone. I'm on my phone for work and play all the time, so I beat up my phones pretty good. The only complaint I have is that this phone is a bit bigger than I'm used to, and it will be even bigger when I get a nice sturdy case for it.

    Haven't been on in forever. Was still rocking my OG Droid, until yesterday. Outside of cracking the screen, and a bit of a random reboot problem over the last couple months, she ran like a champ with zero issues for me. But it was just time.
    Loving this Bionic so far.
