    Does any body know how to take good pics with this phone at concerts? I bought my HTC One thinking the camera would be able to take good photos at all the shows I go to, but I took some at the show I went to last night and most of them were very poor. When the lights were on they were fine, but as soon as the stage darkened and the band came on the pics were for the most part a blurry mess, I'm sure it has something to do with the stage lighting. I would hate to have to resort back to bringing my Samsung point and shoot because its a pain to carry around in my pocket and some venues still won't let you bring in a camera for some reason.

    Thanks for any help on this matter!!!

    Welcome to Android Central
    Smartphones don't have the best camera lenses, and they are for the most part poor performers in low-light conditions. The concert is a place where using a flash won't help, so you're going to have trouble getting good shots with any phone.
    You can try using an app like Shot Control, which lets you change the settings, and maybe raising ISO will help, but a dedicated camera will always beat out a smartphone

    Bummer, kinda what I thought, a buddy of mine has a new Galaxy note and his pics still weren't as good as a regular camera but were WAY better than mine .

    Thanks for the reply!

    Personally, I had gotten fairly decent photos in low-light situations using either the Night Mode or HDR Mode.

    You might want to try both and see if either work for you.

    In the camera settings, is the camera set to take pictures at 4MP? Having anything smaller would probably make the pictures blurrier than they should be

    Recently I have seen a broadway show in times square and in that show I took my camera and while the stage light was on I took some pictures that is cool and when it was dark I came closer to stage and put on my camera flash and then took pictures it was also cool so I want to say that in dark if you want to take broadway show pictures put on the camera flash and take close up pictures.It will help you out.To know which broadway show pictures I have took you can go through this link http://www.broadway.org/info/broadwa...imes-square-ny

    I'm still playing with things, but I just went to Judas Priest the other night and what I discovered is that while the camera pictures sucked as usual, if I started recording video, there's a setting that allows you to take snapshots while you're recording (as opposed to going into the video later and pulling pictures there); the video quality was clearly better than the photos, for whatever reason, and the snapshots reflected this improved quality.

    No, that's just the actual lighting colour. It seems that when the spotlight is pointed on a specific person/area, that area soaks up all the light. I'm not sure, but that's what it looks like.

    Try going into the settings and adjusting the "EV" to -2, it helped my concert photos not look as washed out.
