    When using the camera on the 700p how do you save the picture to the flash card instead of the phones internal memory?
    Thanks,

    Open up the camera app. Just below the viewscreen, on the right, is a drop-down that can be the Treo (phone icon) or the SD card (card icon), or create a new album. Just select the card before you start shooting.

    Those are AWFUL icons. They're so small and both so similar. The "palm" one should be a phone handset or just blank. In the camera app I usually just tell the difference by knowing the chip is below the dotted line.

    Thanks for the help. I had to look twice to see the difference.

    Since this is labeled 700p Camera, does anyone think that the camera could have been made better with the addition of a little flash next to it. Indoors, the camera isn't all that great under OK lighting conditions. Why do the other $40 camera phones have a flash with it but my $400 one can't?

    ...and that's the $64 question.

    Agreed! I would think the same, especially given the nifty price tag (which I paid, mind you). Coming from the BlackBerry world, I was somewhat excited to get back into a phone having a camera, but I better be taking pictures in decent light, the phone is no help.

    I don't think a little "pen-light" flash would help any. I think better light sensitivity and manual aperature/exposure control would be a better improvement.

    Here is a flash alternative. I don't have it, but might get it. http://www.phonephlash.com/

    can't someone design a camera for this phone that doesn't have a 2 second lag??

    If it makes you feel better, the camera on the 6700 is just as bad/slow as the 700P--it was pretty awful.

    But, a company (ATEKSoft ) has released a new camera application that replaces the default one and it did improve the shutter lag (it's mostly gone now) while also greatly improving quality (e.g. "night mode" which greatly enhances the light).

    we were all convinced that the 6700's camera problems were strictly hardware but there is a software workaround, which gives hope the 700P (both are made by HTC).

    I'd suggest for people to find a company that does any kind of software for cameras and pressure them to work on this, I don't see any reason why it can't be improved for a modest price ("CoolCamera" from ATEKSoft is only $14).
