    hey guys

    I just have to say that the camera quality seems to be really lacking on the eris

    -first complain is that the eris camera looses focus easily of not perfectly still,
    ok granted it might just be me holding it wrong

    -second and worse of all is when trying to take a night shot
    I know its not going to be great but i dont
    think it should look like this :

    anyone else experience this? do you think is my cam is defective? any suggestions? am i just ignorant? :)

    I'm no camera expert, but I'd say that night shot looks pretty good for a camera without a flash. The dark and black areas don't show a lot of grain, the lighted part of the dash on the car is nice and sharp, the area illuminated by the headlights is decently focused. All told, that doesn't look too bad to me.

    if you want to take pictures at night with no lighting, this isn't going to do a great job. but i knew that going in since it doesnt have a flash.

    i turned off the auto focus and just tap the screen when i want to take the picture. the camera is mediocre at best, but i wasn't expecting much, either.

    $3K digital SLRs cant focus in the dark either. They use either a focus assist lamp or IR beams. The only way you are going to get a sharp picture is to turn off autofocus be ultra still and cross your fingers.
