    Evo will not take a picture that is clear from less than 5 ft away. With BB Curve could take crystal clear pic of my computer screen from a foot or 2. Evo camera even after tapping focus is terrible. I could read the BB photo as to text on screen but EVO not even close. Can I not take macro type pictures with the EVO camera? Seems a limitation or is the camera gone bad?

    his/her camera might not have been autofocusing right...it should work if he/she taps the screen

    Something's wrong with your EVO. I can read the text clearly as close as 6 inches away.

    Your camera is broke if you can't take a picture that close!

    AAAAAARGHHH! Those are the types of pics I want to take. Tried my wifes EVO and pics look great close up. Went to Sprint Store said I need a new one. Waiting patiently while a new one comes in. Better be before my 30 days is up. Can they copy or dump all my settings and apps from one EVO over to another?
