    Whenever I take a picture with the camera on my 650, the pics are really dark. Is there a flash on the camera or a way to make the camera take brighter pics?

    No. There is no flash.

    What I have found is that if I enable the "Review Photos on timeout" and allow the Treo to take the 3 seconds countdown or whatever before it saves it that the pictures turn out brighter.

    Originally I also found the pics to be way too dark and at the time, I didn't allow the Treo to "review" the photos. You may want to try that.

    Thanks. That helped a little bit. It's unfortunate that they didn't put a little more thought into the camera. Compared to other phone cameras, this one is not very good. Also I appreciate the intelligent answer.

    The other thing I've noticed is that the background plays a HUGE role... If you're trying to take a picture of a person, for instance, and you've got sky above them, the light freaks out the lens, and you'll have a dark face... if you're able to drop the camera to where you have a darker background behind the person, their face will instantly lighten and look better...
