    No, actually. The native camera, since the 2.2.1 update, has been functioning quite well. There are other threads on this topic and the general feeling is that the X camera is very good for a cell phone camera, comparable to a point-and-shoot, but less quality than a full bore digital camera.

    If you want some more options, there are several good apps (one of which is Vignette). However, since the update, the native camera photo quality is considered better than Vignette's.

    That's quite the general statement. Coming from an DINC yes the camera functioned a bit differently but I still had to adjust the settings to get the 'perfect shot'. The X is no different. I own a DSLR and can take bad pictures with that however its not the camera's fault.

    Try different settings and/or new apps as suggested by Arelunde.

    Hopefully, you will find a combination to make the camera a much more enjoyable experience...

    I will agree to a point that the camera is jut ok. The picks that I take inside are grainy unless you have really good light. The pics outside come out looking really good. I've had good and bad pics. Most of the good ones are outside. Its the same way with the videos.

    Yes I'm referring to grainy pictures. The dinc took great pictures indoors and outdoors. The x sucks unless it's very good light

    No, I find the camera on the X fantastic. Crisp, clear images. Nothing like the quality of Cannon 1ds (portrait photography is my profession), but it is a phone. If you need high end photos, carry around a dedicated camera.

    I think the camera is crappy as soon as you zoom in. As soon as you hit the zoom button once, it drops the megapixels considerably. I dont know if that is the way it is on all cameras but its frustrating not being able to use the zoom.

    The camera is a total crap shoot (pun intended). Sometimes the pictures are awesome and sometimes it blurry pixelated hell. And don't even bother with the zoom.

    Well, the marketing people have been deceiving people by perpetuating the false premise that more pixels is better.

    What is correct is the larger the sensor, the higher the potential to produce quality photos. In the end, though, it still remains the users responsibility to use the camera correctly.

    Look at the Iphone..best out there at stock picture quality...5 mgpxls.

    The inc loads faster, as most other cell phone cameras. Don't let that hump on the X fool you. The aperture is real. The two seconds load time is annoying. I load my camera, then sleep the phone. I am at the zoo, gardens, whatever. I have done extensive research and threaded this subject. Bottom line, you want instant, get a point and shoot. The X takes phenomenal pics. An X user smoked my sgs and I phone user in a thread I started on another forum (thought my sgs was the best) well, it is the fastest. You think the inc is slick, try the sgs, that camera is so sick fast. Speed aside, the X has great camera hardware, and takes some of the most amazing cell pics I have seen (macro included) long story short, a camera is only a good as your understanding of its tools.

    Just wanted to put this out there, if you are getting grainy pics it could also be due to the zoom. There is only a digital zoom on the X which is not much better than cropping a pic in photo shop. I have taken some great pics with my X, but if I'm looking for high quality, I'll sick with my DSLR.

    Not zooming at all. I also realized that the inc focuses better. The x makes me move around to get the focus box to go green

    My X takes completely fantastic pictures in "good" bright light and completely horrible pictures in low light settings.

    I'm not impressed with the X camera either. My D1 produced alot better quality images compared to that of the X.

    As a member previously stated, higher MP doesn't always yield better photos.

    Its safe to say it will be a VERY long time before a cellphone/multimedia device is even remotely able to challenge a DSLR...

    The zoom is digital, not mechanical. You are taking only a portion of the actual photograph and enlarging it to fill the frame. Thus the low quality level. Better to shoot full frame and then edit later to a cropped portion. Will be much better quality.

    I have my X settings at 8 mp and HD video. I've taken outstanding video in inside with very low light. I can't complain at all. Since the updates, the camera and video produce quality results ... other than using the digital zoom (mentioned above).
