MP is pixel count. That's it. There are many, many more factors that affect image quality. Settings can't overcome whatever hardware limitations exist with the camera. It performs very poorly in anything but bright light (e.g. outdoors in midday sun).Is there a setting on the Droid somewhere that allows you to set the camera to "Not Crap" ?!
Why is a 5MP camera set to Super Fine generating a 1 MB file that looks like it came from the old disc camera I had 20 years ago?
I expect decent snapshots in less-than-ideal lighting. I don't carry around lighting gear for my cell phone's camera. My prior device had a fairly decent (let's say "usable in bars" as a guideline) camera so I don't see why it's unreasonable to expect the same from the Droid.what are you expecting?
Not to hijack the thread, but I don't like this camera either. Perhaps if I can get some help?
This camera takes GIANT pictures that others can't open when I text them. So, how to get a smaller more normal size without cropping 5 times? I would like decent pics.
