so do most u use? the default 6mp or bump it up to 8mp? got my htc 8x like 3 days ago amazing phone and smooth silky os... gonna try to get some pics a and video for the thread.. but ya i to notice the focus issue...maybe htc will update that issue? also it seems touch to capture is easier then the camera button.
Word of warning: I am not fluent in photography at all, but in the below pictures, I was playing around to see if I can get the "23rd street" in focus. The first image is the default, while the second one was the result of going down the list of settings and tweaking them "one or two" style like an optometrist. Flash was off in both of these. With a little tweaking, it seems there could be some use for this camera yet:
That was rushed? The pool looks amazing in that pic! I wonder how much better it would have been if you hadn't rushed the pic
Ya it was rushed :P literally pulling the phone out of my pocket and launching the camera app from the lockscreen and taking a pic one handed without really looking at the screen just hearing the capture screen noise while talking to cousins hahah.. and then being impressed afterwords... no pre focus click attempted just boom and pocketed for later viewing :) in like a second hah and then uploaded to skydrive then photo bucket with the typical compression taken place :)
Heres A Quick Rushed Night Shot of Part of Downtown SD in the Background with the freeways etc.. on my way to my local city college to meet up with my Girl... No tweaked settings besides the Full 8MegalPixel Setting.. taken around 5:20pm my time
Some shots @ SD Zoo taken last week. Sky shots are a work in progress as even with fast shutter speeds and 100-200 iso. Any higher ISO and all was over exposed, feast or famine. No Post on any pictures with the exception of resolution reduction by 33% of their original 8mp sources.
There's this thin line at the bottom of videos that sort of makes it look it the video is cut in 2 parts. It's not extremely noticeable, but it's there.
I'm seeing that on my 8x as well. Wonder if that's a 8x issue or a WP8 issue. Any ideas?
Actually misspoke and didn't realize it. "Lowest Exposure" is the actually setting I was using, however I feel that it is entirely shutter speed based. I maybe incorrect, but, "lowest exposure" I'm treating as fastest-shutter speed, and Highest exposure as the slowest.
