    So, as a previous HTC users (yeah, yeah, yeah...) I loved the camera on the Eris and the Incredible, not only did they have a whole lot more of a crisp high-res detail, the auto-focus absolutely rocked.

    With my droid x, I can be getting a little artsy and focus on an object with the crosshair.... but it'll take me 20 tries to get it to lock on, its insane, I know I'm not getting too close to my subject because it will definitely eventually focus on that object if I try over and over and over again. It's not just close ups that I find myself and my buddy with this issue either.. macro shooting mode does not help.. My buddie's droid X has the same exact behaviors. Eris and incredible just LOCKED ON first try with even very low contrast/detail subjects... on top of that, have a ton better camera GUI when it comes to "click to focus".


    I know this thing ain't no SLR but ... blows me away of how terrible the camera performance is vs. the HTC android based devices.
    Think motorola will fix this?

    I know this thing ain't no SLR but it just blows me away how the HTC android devices camera performance (except for video) blows the Droid X away.

    Try the app Vignette ... makes the DX camera all it should be (video, too).

    The 2.2 update supposedly makes the camera faster, and hopefully better too.

    this app absolutely kills the stock camera. faster, sharper, smart autofocus (tap to focus point). well worth the price.

    Agreed. I haven't used the stock camera since I learned about Vignette in these forums. So much more flexibility and a MUCH better shot.

    I've been trying Vignette for the past two days. I haven't noticed much of a difference aside from my pictures being cropped a little more than stock. On 2.2, the stock camera app is actually slighty faster in my case.

    you need to change your settings to keep it from cropping, it's not set at 16:9 by default.

    Or 'Fullscreen' is an option also so you don't even have to think about it.
