    It was my first real day off of work without it being rainy outside so I got a chance to play around with the camera features on the phone, Thought I should share since some people are curious of the photo quality, Overall I am definitely satisfied. I actually handed off my DSLR to my boyfriend and spent the day shooting with the Evo!

    Yeah, I took a few pictures and was super satisfied, too. It may not have the best video quality, but pictures are excellent.

    Great looking pics. Now I'm just waiting for member Reemas to come in here and call the camera garbage and paste a link to his iPhone vs Evo video post.

    I have found the app called Inserty to be a useful adjunct to the camera. I use it to generate captions (e.g., when uploading a photo to Facebook). Inserty lets you paste in either pre-written text strings or ones based on time and location such as this metadata:

    Date: 6/23/2010. Location: yy.yyyy N, xx.xxxx W. Camera: HTC Evo 4G.

    P.S. Don't forget to turn on geotagging in the camera settings so that lat/lon can get included in the JPEG file metadata.

    Thanks Everyone :] Haha by the way this was with no adjustments really to the settings it was all automatic so really this is good to see the best possible performance conditions.

    lol that is definitely nerdy but adorable :)

    I would post some of the pictures i took of myself on my evo but i dont want to cause any problems lol.

    I made that mistake before in the pre forums and it caused drama lol

    The pictures i took both inside in low light, in the bathroom with brighter lights and outside were all so good on the EVO.

    it does have a really good camera, for the most part

    I think we should all post our best photos we took with our Evo so far or just create an Evo photo thread. In the past this may have been pointless but as stated, the camera is pretty good and an image thread might encourage our fellow Evo users to share their images.

    I think the evo has an awesome camera. I may just leave the nikon at home on the next trip.

    Ah what a great idea! We should have a thread for photos, I think that would be awesome :] I will have some more up soon of a concert I'm going to tomorrow and hopefully the camera beats out other camera phones I've brought out to shows.

    question: how did your battery life do while using the camera? I'm planning to take a lot of pictures on Sunday but will also be away from a charger most of the day... might just bring my point and shoot to make sure my phone doesn't die before i get home :-/...

    Well I took it off the charger at 9am, and was shooting photos from about 11-3 heavily and then played around on the internet a bit throughout the day and once I was back home and ready to charge again the phone still have 40% left :]

    Sprint is now selling a universal ac charger that has it's own battery built in, so even away from a plug you can still charge your phone. They retail for 40 bucks but with the premier thing I got it for 30. Not sure how much of a charge it will replace, but surely it'll help.

    What settings are you all using to get such great looking pictures? Mine look like crap. Is everyone taking pictures at the 8mp size? What about the other settings? Idk what to tweak to make the pics better...
