    I have been trying to deal with the blurry images from the Eris's camera but enough is enough. Unless my subject is completely still for 10 seconds, my picture is looks blurry. Does anyone have this problem? Could I fix it in settings? I am currently using the 5 meg pixel setting. reducing it does help but still..

    I really noticed this on the v1 leak. On v2, it seemed improved. On v3, it was bad again. I didn't have this trouble on 1.5, by the way. Unless I hold the camera dead still and there's also real good light, pictures are a luck of the draw for me... :(

    Same here. I forgot to mention I am using the V3 leak. It makes the camera completely unreliable.

    I only have problems indoors where there isn't very good lighting. I'm on the OTA.

    If I take a picture using the trackball I tend to get blurry pictures. However if I long-press on the screen on top of the area that I most want to be in focus (subject's face, for instance) then the camera auto-focuses AND snaps the shutter (or the digital equivalent) - no need to press the trackball. Doing it this way I get nice crisp pictures.

    Edit: Took a picture of my store. This is set at 3mp and the store is not overly brightly lit. BTW, I took ONE picture, not a series and then chose the best one. I have no problem with a phone that takes pictures of this caliber.

    I trust the mods won't bust me for shameless advertising. This is in keeping with the topic of the thread, and hey - I'm at work, it's the only thing around to take a picture of (you have to admit the colors are pretty...). :)

    I would HIGHLY recommend downloading ProZoom camera. It was suggested to me and is WAY better then the stock camera. It costs a couple of bucks but the pictures come out MUCH clearer and they are saved extremely fast. It is one of the best apps that I've downloaded and you'll much happier with your pictures. I think it's called ProZoom 5x in the market.

    Excellent tip! I've been using the 2 sec delay to try and fix the shaky feeling of the trackball, but touch and hold works wonderfully. Thanks.
