    welcome to the reality of life with a DVP... :(

    the camera did get somewhat better after the Mango update but still, even at it's best this is a remarkably crappy camera for such a nice phone.

    Can anyone post a few pics, or link to some that they've posted elsewhere with these settings? I love the DVP but the photo quality was so bad I couldn't stand it. I'm wondering how much better it is now than when the DVP first came out, and it was almost impossible to get a picture that was actually in focus?

    As per raremage's request. Two pictures, one taken at default settings, the other at the settings recommended by vtective. (I think there may be a little dirt on the lens).
    Chose a bunch of small subjects with a lot of different colours, taken under indoor lighting. Flash on auto but didn't fire either time...

    Default (5Mp 2592x1944, ISO gain: Auto/HJR, White Balance: Auto, Scene Mode: Off, Metering Mode: Frame Average, Exposure Compensation: 0.0, Anti Banding: Off).
    The picture's quite dark but the colours are pretty true to what they are...


    With the settings adjusted as per vtective's recommendations, the picture's a lot lighter but the brighter colours have "blown out" a bit (though oddly, the Rubik's cube is correct here, blue/yellow/orange)...


    For reference, here's what the Titan sees...


    If you want, I could take a couple of pictures outside in natural daylight?

    Daylight shot.
    1st at default settings. White of the car is very yellowed...


    2nd at vtective settings. Much improved...


    Finally, Titan for comparison purposes...
