    I'm surprised at all the praise. Under certain conditions then the iPhone takes deceptively impressive pictures, but I've yet to find the Pre take one that doesn't look like a camera phone shot. And the quality isnt perfect enough to do barcode scanning for those apps that can use it.

    I'll keep trying but the lack of control, video and quality are disappointing (so far). Especially if the iPhone rumors of the frontcam for iChat is for real...

    I was extremely impressed with the camera quality, but was surprised to learn I can't zoom. I'm sure they'll add this OTA, hopefully.

    I took it out in the yard today to test it out and I came away pretty impressed. It did well in well lit areas although it doesn't do well for subjects to close to the camera (Hey its not a macro camera). From the image below you'll notice the foreground is out of focus but the background is sharp. It certainly wont be replacing my DSLR but its camera on a phone, looks good to me.

    I took this picture of a tree outside my house today, and I have to say I'm fairly impressed:



    It's obviously not as good as my digital camera, but for a phone, I don't think I could ask for much more. The color contrast in particular is outstanding.

    This camera is freaking awesome! It really is awesome.

    My only complaint is trying to hold up the camera for self shots it's hard to hit the button since it's on the touchscreen. No biggie though.

    It's due to the minimum focusing distance of the lens/sensor combo

    Zoom is good if it is optical. On the treo and centros they were digital zoom which is basically worthless.

    Who uses the crappy zoom on camera phones anyways? Video I can understand, zoom I can not.

    My first digital camera was a Kodak DC260 that I paid $800.00 for. It had the same resolution that my PHONE does now. I'm quite happy with it. As far a video, Palm may have left us a hint. Go to email, click on the attachments icon. You have a choice of sending photos, music and documents based on the icons for what you can send. The fourth icon is a movie camera.

    that could be what it's for but it does have current functionality. It allows you to attach videos that are currently on the Pre.

    I love the camera. It takes great quality pics. I am hoping that they do add more functions to the camera with future updates but for now I am pleased.

    you should search for the picture of the black car on here. I looks great in the middle but around the edges theres an insane amount of distortion. Looks almost freakish. But the center is really high quality

    Did you turn on Geotagging in the location services preferences?

    The camera's picture quality is almost on par with my 7.2 Exilm, the pictures look just as good and the flash is great.

    For those, you use a proper camera (any P&S with zoom will do). I saw people at my niece's graduation taking pics with a Nintendo DSi. I mean, REALLY?

    Zoom on cell phone cameras is a joke. It just crops and blows up a section of the photo. You can easily do that in Photoshop or even Paint.
