    Pic uploaded on flickr. Gloomy day here, so colors aren't amazing. It's not horrible, but still a cell phone camera.

    Looks like a nice picture to me! Lots of detail on that peach and wood and good camera focus.

    In what looks like terrible lighting, the pictures are definitely less grainy than what I'm used to on my OG Droid. Good stuff.

    No skill here just a quick point and shoot of my dog outside. I figure this is how most of my pictures will be taken.

    Seems obvious, but make sure you go into the camera settings and set it to 8MP. It defaults to 6MP for some reason concerning the screen (at least that's what it says).

    On that note, it looks like the video is 720...I thought it was 1080...but then again I'm a total newbie and probably don't know what I'm talking about.

    The video defaults to 720p, but you can set it to 1080p.

    Ok, thanks. I hoped this was the case but did not see 1080 listed as one of the setting choices.

    That peach shot looked amazing for a camera phone...Almost like I shot it on a real camera. Got to love the 8MP resolution, it really brings out a lot of detail when you get really close.

    I thought it looked really good. I was shocked on the detail it had. I would like to see that same shot on an infinity zoom if ithe bionic has it.

    The sensor they used seems to rival the thunderbolts sensor. Kudos to the bionic

    If you set it to 8mb, the toggle box will not be checked. It's not obvious UI.

    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.

    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.


    edit:
    added a pic of my other baby eating her foot.. and I threw in a macro shot just seeing how it looks

    Not too bad of picture quality. My Incredible and Droid Charge had much better picture quality. Still really like the phone regardless.
