Here is a flower with the macro setting (note the bee in the flower): 2011-09-09_08-36-39_867 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
And a quick shot using the macro setting along with what I assume is a digital zoom. Not DSLR quality but not too bad. The focus is laggy but not a deal breaker. Droid Bionic macro + zoom | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
Finally a couple of comparison shots-first my trusty Droid Eris with its 5mp camera: comparison photo Eris (5mp) | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
And the same scene with my Bionic: Test photo 3 Bionic 8mp | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
Both these shots are on the respective camera's auto settings (flash off on the Bionic)
The Bionic tends to be more blue the Eris more red. To my eye the room is in between these two colorwise. Also the Bionic image seems less clear but I think that is a contrast issue and possibly an issue related to how the two cameras process the image. I've noticed that my Eris and the other HTC cameras I have worked with seem to use a processing program that emphasizes edges: not so with the Bionic.
I am going to take more comparison pictures this weekend and will set up a folder on my flickr site-two phones plus my Canon Rebel.
As an aside I wish I could have more control over things like ISO, saturation, color balance etc while I am taking the picture-seems the Thunderbolt has a better controls over its camera.
My baby finally gets some love after being exposed to 3 megapixels for too long. took it with a sandwich and a drink in my hands while walking out of work, so it's not the highest quality shot or anything but shrug.
added a pic of my other baby eating her foot.. and I threw in a macro shot just seeing how it looks
