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.Always learning ...

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...

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.Semper Fi

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.

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.

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).Always learning ...
