    Anyone have any suggestions for setting the camera to the best picture quality? Coming from an iphone (sorry) I notice that there's a bit of a yellow tint to my pictures (at least on the display...maybe it's just a display issue?). Anyone just curious if there's any photo people out there that have found a good setting for their photo and video's on the Thunderbolt.

    Much appreciated.

    I max out every setting possible. Highest resolution, auto light levels and widescreen. I'd post pics i've taken recently, but id probably get banned or something. LOL. For close ups, find one with a macro setting.

    I would load the pictures up on you computer and compare them with ones taken with the iphone. I'm pretty sure the yellow hue is just your display. Also I've noticed the camera tends to oversaturate colors (which I like as it makes the contrasting colors pop) where as the iphone seems to keep images truer to life. Hope that helps

    I leave everything "off" or as low as possible because once the camera settings manipulate the photo, there's no way to un-manipulate it in photoshop. So I would rather have a completely unprocessed image that I can process in photoshop to my liking.

    if you're just looking for settings for snap shots that you'll share later on, then just set them to whatever your personal tastes are for the resulting pics.

    Btw, there's a cam app on amazon today. Haven't downloaded it yet, but I did grab it.
