Doesn't seem great in what standard? For a cell phone, I'd say those are excellent.

*seems like SOMEONE thought 8mp meant it would be like their point and shoot*

It's not about megapixels but quality of lens etc. Nokia had years ago N95 with Carl Zeiss lens and cam was 5 megapixels and quality was excellent. High megapixel number only sounds impressive until you look at quality of the lens etc.

First, for a cell phone, those aren't that bad of quality.

Next, what you're really running into is the automatic adjustment of the ISO for darker images. If you take a picture in full light, you'll see an amazingly clear image. If you want to get a less grainy picture in darker settings, go into your settings in your camera and change the ISO setting from Auto to a low number ISO. Keep in mind, the lower the ISO, the less light you're going to see in the image. If you're in a dark area and use ISO 100, you'll get a pitch black picture.

It's mostly here about the lens and your sensor size (and some internal workings). Forget about Megapixels.

If you want a high quality image in darker light (and keep in mind, just because you see huge lights in a stadium doesn't mean it's well lit for a picture in the area you're taking!), you end up in the realm of digital photography. I have equipment that will take amazing pictures in the same setting you have there, but it cost over $2000 and on the fastest lens has a lens opening bigger than the Evo .

All in all, I'd be happy with what you're seeing, but feel free to tweak the settings if you want some better performance.

Adding in after the fact: I don't know if the Evo has a fixed Shutter Speed or not, but the other important thing to consider is that as the phone needs to gather more light, you're going to have a slower shutter speed, normally (for auto adjustments). Slower shutter speeds mean blurry images. Really low shutter speeds will give you a blurry image if you even breathe. This is the normal working of a camera.

Wow, those pics look great. Now all I need to do is shrink you down to a manageable size so I can stick you in my pocket for whenever I need to take a picture.

Aw love her hair. I'm dying my hair blonde as well lol
But the ops pix and his pix look great.

I just took some pix for my Facebook just a few moments ago and uploaded them and my friends don't believe that they are taken on a camera phone. Evo has good quality in my opinion

When I take pictures in dark areas using the flash people seem to glow. I think its because the flash doesnt turn on long enough and thus the camera is still adjusting to the light. Any ideas or settings that will remedy this?

The people glow because you're hitting them with a bright LED. If you want to mess around with it though, download LED Desire Light and you can turn the LED on manually, that way you won't be dependent on the camera doing it for you.

Camera 360 is terrific. It's nothing short of ridiculous in terms of features. In my opinion, it totally blows the default camera app out of the water.

There are actually a few instances when my evo's camera takes a better pic than my canon powershot 780. If there is good lighting and you set the iso no higher than 200, you won't get as much noise, and the noise you do get can be taken out by photoshop easily. any higher ISO and it start to effect the quality. Of course, for those indoor evening occasions where it's kinda dark, who cares about grain...it is a phone taking the pics isn't it?

Yea the first thing i did was follow instructions to set my ISO to 200. It helped alot.. and to the guy complaining about blur in action night shots. Take a regular point and shoot camera heck even if a DSLR with out a 2.8 Fstop lens, you will get this exact same motion blur. Its typical night time action shooting. Its due to lack of light hitting the lens. So dont get frustrated i have taken some really decent pics with this phone.




And last one was taken while driving 50 mph.

FxCamera (FxCamera - Android app on AppBrain) is great for taking pictures with various "styles" (similar to Hipstamatic on the iPhone).

For post-processing, I think Photoshop.com Mobile (Photoshop.com Mobile - Android app on AppBrain) is absolutely a necessity on your phone - can crop, do various editing, etc.

Here's a shot I took to show someone my lighter I got as part of graduation that's from the mid 1940's (so far from the 5 places we've taken it to have it looked at). So far, the average price we're being told it's wroth is like $160. FYI, not selling it, and my boot camp is actually in Great Lakes, which I'll be going to December 14th, yay for a white christmas! :\

I'm in love with the camera, I have no complaints with it so far. I went outside and took this one yesterday.

Its due to lack of light hitting the lens. So dont get frustrated i have taken some really decent pics with this phone.
incorrect. a 2.8 lens is more than fast enough for a mlb ballpark where there is plenty of lighting. esp with a capable dslr like the canon 40d.

ive done it many times.

Mad Quality of Evo pix tend to suck lolly pops

Having issues with my Evo pic quality. I'm shooting in 8mp setting, but pix always come out grainy. Also, files are never more than 2.4 mb and are usually under 2mb all together. Want a 2nd opinion before I go marching back to Sprint. Here are some shots taken with the 8mp setting (yes, I'm sure). The shot of the watch is with the front camera (default 1.3mp setting).: What I'm most concerned with is the file size of the pix. Should they really be under 2mb. My 10mp digital camera takes 10mb file shots. Shouldn't it be the same thing?






And here's with the front facing camera

The camera on the EVO, just like any other camera can only be as good as the person using it to take the pictures. Photography is not as simple as point and click there is really quite alot to it, I suggest picking up a book on photography and giving it a quick read through it just might help you appreciate the camera on the EVO that much more

Cheers

This is outside of your house? If that's your house, I'm no longer jealous of your phone. I'm promoting my jealousy.
