I'm not seeing that quality or level of detail with mine...see some examples I've included. Tried with different light, just taking regularly and also trying with pushing button halfway down to 'focus'...maybe it's my camera? But based upon the examples I've seen so far from others, something doesn't seem quite right with mine.
*EDIT* Btw, I'm just using the default camera settings that came stored on the phone..haven't tried playing with any settings really, besides changing quality from 8mp to 5mp to see if that made any difference.
Wow, those are incredible compared to mine. I really don't think I'm shaking any more than with previous phones--iphone4, pre 2, pre 3, samsung captivate--but I'll try that anti-shaking and be more aware of how much I'm moving the phone.
I've also checked the lense for smudges and have cleaned so will try some more test shots. If I start getting the kinds you are, then I'm totally satisfied...just weird to me that I'm having so much trouble ;o) I'll post some more pics later tonight. Thanks for your suggestions/help.
gravage, would you be so kind as to attach the iphone 4s versions of those pictures? I'm very torn over what phone to get and camera quality is one of my key features.
How sad is it that I'm deciding on a PHONE for Camera specs/quality?
wow! this is a great picture!I love the detail this phone is capable of. Even though it compresses the pictures by default, they still retain a lot of the quality.
I have been playing with the camera and settings all week, but for the most part I am finding that the pictures are really not up to snuff, bordering on poor. I'll grant you I am used to the iPhone 4, which is fantastic in almost any circumstance, but these photos are largely grainy or the saturation is wonky. Being that it is the same hardware as the Galaxy S2 line, which rates up there with the best cameras, do you think Samsung will fix this (I am assuming its software), or do you think because it is a lowly Windows Phone that they will just let it fly? I am really starting to love this phone, but camera quality is close to one of my top criteria in a smartphone. I could still get a Titan, but I am really kind of digging this phone now.
