    A lot of these pics look good but the problem with the camera isn't so much the quality of the photo's, its the performance. The AF and shutter speed are slow. These pics are of scenery which it's real easy to capture quality scenery photos. Try taking pictures of an 11 month old. The Bionic camera makes it much more difficult than some others who have very fast AF and shutter speed, most notable the iPhone 4.

    I was wanting to ask, does the Bionic still use the mechanical camera shutter? In my opinion this was one of Motorola's cameras downfalls. There is a number of good and bad shots but from my opinion lighting is a must with Motorola camera because the flash never was good enough.

    You could try multi-shot mode. It takes 6 pictures in rapid succession.

    In single shot mode the camera is decently quick for a point and shoot. It is 2 secs from pressing the shutter to ready for next shot.

    Thanks for posting that, I've been wondering how Dockside looked as I never got a chance to make it out there during the flooding. I'm about 5 min from there.

    All of those HDR+ shots look amazing. I can't wait to get mine in a few days.

    I have been playing around with stock, vignette and Camera Zoom FX apps. The paid apps offer significant improvements in image quality over the stock app, particularly in low light. I took these photos using default settings but with flash on auto and steady shot on in all apps.

    Vignette vs. Camera Zoom FX look pretty similar, I would say that Vignette looks sharper whereas Camera Zoom FX has richer colors. Feel free to check out the Picasa album, would be interested to see which app people prefer. Think I will be going with Vignette in future for non-HDR photos.

    The HDR photos look really great, been using HDR+ but it won't let me set the gallery app as the default gallery without the gallery app crashing when starting up (am I missing something?)

    I reported the gallery app crashing as a bug to the HDR+ support team. Then I downloaded a much better app for gallery viewing called QuickPic which works great.

    I'm not seeing a consistent difference that would lead me to choose one app over the other in these shots. Why do you like Vignette the best?

    Awesome, thanks for the Quickpic app suggestion. Works great and I agree is better than the stock gallery. Cheers.

    Yeah, I agree they are not overly different. I think the Vignette pics are in general a little bit sharper than the Camera Zoom FX pics and a bit lighter. I do think the color is better in Camera Zoom FX though...

    Not sure yet....

    What about the stock app? I think I liked Vignette better than Camera Zoom FX but I liked the stock app too.

    Take a macro shot of something with a lot of color, but in low light. See how that works.

    Ok this image is from the stock camera app in low light.



    In real life my desk actually does look like it has hairs embedded in it so that's not the camera lol.

    Here is a panorama taken from my front yard. The sun was still pretty low in the sky so it's probably a little washed out because of that.

    Morning and evening are usually considered great times to take pictures because the shadows are longer. It's during midday that everything gets washed out looking.

    Here's a couple quick shots I took.

    First one is stock camera, second is HDR Camera+.

    Havent really adjusted the setting in either camera yet, so I am sure both could be much better.

    The odd thing is that there aren't hardley ay camera settings. I download camera FX app and it does make the pictures a little better. Phone does focus a little faster than stock.
