Evo cam capable of Macro?
I currently carry a BlackBerry Tour and I LOVE the camera - I can take some pretty amazing UP CLOSE pictures and need this ability on the Evo. I know it's 8mp, but I need to take macro shots with excellent detail like I can with my BlackBerry. Anyone know if I will have this ability via the standard settings or some sort of enhancement app? I use my camera so often, I'd SO hate to not get this phone just for this reason....

"Camera does nice 8 megapixel macro photos… time to find some flowers with bugs on them."

Jordus, I have a BlackBerry Tour that takes amazingly sharp and detailed close up shots..... I'm not expecting too much. Just expecting an 8mp cam to be as good as my 3.2.. The BB has an "up close" setting and the pics are shockingly clear and detailed. I'm just hoping for as much from the Evo.

No digital AF on the Pre meant a fixed distance would always have the best shots.
Since all these phone pictures invariably were for consumption on FB, and nothing else, it generally doesn't matter much to me. For "real" pictures, I would resort to the dslr instead. However, I can see how a compulsive shutterbug would want those options.
You do know that there's no optical focus, or optical zoom (for any phone camera) so any close-up shot is merely a digitally zoomed in, and digitally focused shot??

a brief mention of macro, and an up close shot taken with the evo. i'm pretty sure this came out prior to any real hands on info of the phone, so take that for what it's worth.
