    minor issues tend to be rectified with updates, particularly camera issues. Wait for Froyo and then the camera should be squeaky clean.

    Try Camera Zoom Fx I get much better shots than the standard camera.
    It could be the stability check or the fact you can set jpeg to 100% or something else.

    EDIT: Tried some shots with each. One thing I note is that Widescreen actually zooms in to achieve this and looses some detail.

    I've tested 4x different handsets and I agree bobby, the video has a slight 'ripple' type movement to it (this happened on all 4x phones) so I'm of the opinion it's just the way it is.

    I'm not unhappy with the video, it's not awesome but it's good enough :)

    I have one question, sorry for off topic, so is there any camera app that provides a quality panorama capture?

    Movie 'wobble' is a well know issue with most types of CMOS imaging sensor, popularly used in very small and inexpensive cameras, from Webcams to cameraphones, but also some big and expensive DSLR cameras.

    The problem is caused by the pixels being read-out in series from the top of the frame to the bottom. This is called a rolling shutter. If there is any motion during the frame read-out, there will be motion distortion. So if you shake your camera from left to right you will see a wobbling effect that can be very unpleasant. The only remedy is to avoid fast camera movements and to keep the camera as steady as possible.

    tx for that ian. the light sensor from the camera goes darker for a few moments,then goes lighter.noticed this whilst taking a video of our pup in the livingroom which allows plenty light.almost impossible to get a decent video of the pup without the"jerky"or"strobing"effect,as he runs around a lot.like I said earlier,not a MAJOR issue,but an issue none the less.can only hope the next update(whenever that'll be)will be the cure.tx again.

    Have you ensured the flicker compensation (50/60Hz) option in the camera tools menu has been selected for your part of the world (50Hz in Europe and 60Hz in the US, for example)?
