    Took some shots today on my little walk. Below is the Central Park Conservatory Garden and Cathedral of St. John the Divine.

    This post is all Incredible photos and the next post is all GF-1. Overall, I think the HTC Incredible is about 65% there to a beginner's compact camera. It's no LX-3 or S90 but for a camera phone, I think it surpasses the Nokia N95 which I used to own.

    Everything was been post processed in Lightroom to whatever settings were most pleasing to my eye.

    holy CRAP. You clearly are a pro at this, these pictures are fantastic man. If I used still wallpapers these would be soo nice. I'm strongly considering ditching my Cybershot, the Incredible seems to be able to handle everything that does with ease.

    Nice. Any tests of the Inc in low light situations? While I agree the camera is nice, you tested it in sunlight in a nice brightish setting that is very conducive to good photos.

    Also, those tree leaves from the DInc look awful. Mine does it to; I think it is processing the light/dark interface, and with leaves that happens to be everywhere in the leafy area of the tree. It is annoying and leaves an almost pixelated (not really, but almost) look. Just annoying.

    -Nkk <--who despite knowing what physically/electronically makes a good picture wishes he could take ones as good as the OP

    That Panny kicks some serious tail!! Great pics....and I say again, the DInc and all cell phone cameras(Evo included), are just cell phone cameras....so don't think you're going to buy a cell phone(EVO) and leave Verizons' great network, because it has 720p video.....it will be cell phone video and not near what a regular 720p camera would be.....
     
  10. Are you using the default camera settings before editing? If not, care to share what setup you're running (I don't mind little bit of editing post-shot to get a decent looking photo)

    The pictures look amazing btw.

    Is there any way you can show the original pictures before Lightroom? I feel like that would give us a better representation of how the Incredible takes pictures. For me so far, I feel that it performs admirably well under optimal lighting conditions, but any low-light conditions show a huge amount of noise. This is to be expected, though, so no complaints there. I can't really compare the shots I take with it to the shots I would get with my SLR.

    Great photos... always remember, your Incredible can take some great photos like a camera, but your camera (Panasonic GF-1) can't make a phone call, not even a poor one...lol

    Most camera/cell phones 3mp or better take pretty good photos, i was at a wedding this weekend, other than the professional photographer, most people were using their cell phones which where smartphone types to snap photos/videos.

    Yeah, the Inc does take great shots in the day time. Night shots... not so much. Still, the point & shoot camera makers should be nervous.

    Actually my Incredible can barely make phone calls. Anyways, I'm impressed how good the Incredible camera is for a phone camera but it's only about 65% of the way there to a real compact.

    Nice shots. Surprising DOF on some of the Incredible shots. As for the darkness, nothing PS can't clean up I'm sure, as long as the detail is still hidden in there.

    I don't think so either (indoor/night). With the flash (being LED), from what I can tell is it's best to change the White Balance to Daylight as the Auto setting doesn't seem to adjust to the LED flash color properly.

    I gotta be honest, i can't even take photos that good with my nikon d40 dslr. Then again its user error not the equipment thats the reason for that. I just don't take alot of pictures and aren't too interested in doing so, but when i do it seems i'm usually left with dark or light pics that don't look very good.(i'm getting better though) Of course i need to practice alot more to get better at it, heh.

    Sounds like you're having issues with metering. I would recommend picking up a basic photography book and just spending an hour skimming through it. Once you have the basics, you can build upon it very quickly.

    The Incredible pics were taken with Daylight White balance, and -1 on sharpness and saturation. I prefer to do the sharpness and saturation changes in Lightroom.
