    Where to start!

    I'm a HUGE photography nut! Changing your ISO and manually control your white balance will do WONDERS for your cellphone shots.

    Open your Camera. Click Menu. Click White Balance.

    Automatic SUCKS on this phone, it's rarely right for what you need. Incandescent = regular light bulbs, pretty self explanatory.... Select the one you want for your lighting situation. It's a PITA having to do it all the time, but it's the price you pay for decent pictures.

    Camera > Menu > Settings > ISO

    This is, essentially, how sensitive your camera will be to light. A low number such as 100 is great for bright situations such as the beach but horrible for night shots. A number such as 800 on the other hand will be much more useful for night shots but creates "grain" in the image that can make the image look poor.


    FWIW, I refuse to shoot automatically with a real camera anymore. I feel I can get SOOOO much more control shooting manually then I ever could when shooting auto.

    800 will allow the phone to hold as much light as possible and will help prevent the pictures from being blurry.

    Up to you. It'll just change the overall storage size (and dimension size) of the image. Might as well stick with 5M

    Too bad we can't control shutter speed and f-stop... THAT would make my day!

    ... but then again... that's what a real camera is for :D

    So when you take a picture do you tap on the screen or use the ball?

    I prefer to press the screen because I feel that I hold the phone steadier that way then when I press the trackball.

    Trackball works too though, it all comes to personal preference.
