    Im a bit bummed... Im coming from a nokia c7 which I use as an for everyday work tasks including, email, browsing, and camera. The 710 camera settings do not seem to have any way of decreasing the resolution. I take tons of photos for work however do not require high res. pics. I kept my res. at 1.3mp on my c7 which suited me fine and didnt take up much memory since I archive all my pics on my desktop. Any apps that allow for decreased resolution photos or is the 7.8 update expected to allow such a feature??

    You should have the option to adjust the resolution within the camera application. Once you've opened the camera, press the "cog" and you'll see some options, one of which should be "resolution" select your favoured one and then "save settings". Now everytime you open the camera application it should take pictures at your desired settings.
    I've gone through those settings and the resolution sub-menu has 2 options 5MP 4:3 and 4MP 16:9 none to decrease the res. in 4:3 format any lower than 5MP. Do other windows phones such as your Titan allow for various resolutions below 5MP?

    My Lumia 900 allows: 8mp 4:3, 7mp 16:9, 3mp 4:3, and 2mp 16:9.
    My Samsung Focus allows 5mp (2560x1920), 3mp (2048x1536), 2mp (1600x1200), and VGA (640x480)

    Since you take pictures a lot, avoid the Lumia 900 at all costs. Its camera lacks a back side illuminated sensor so low light pictures are garbage, even with flash. It only takes good pictures if your are in brightly lit places.

    I think some photo apps take lower res pics but they may have been updated by now to use the full res of the camera.

    Yes they do. My Titan offers:

    Small (640 x 480)
    1M (1280 x 960)
    2M (1600 x 1200)
    3M (2048 x 1536)
    5M (2592 x 1944)
    8M (3264 x 2448)

    You could use Fhotoroom (you don't need to use the social features). This application will take images at 1536 x 1152.
    Thank you, I will look into that app.
