    Now considering waiting till SG3. I went to Best Buy yesterday too to order the phone. Rats If I knew it was a software fix, I'd pick it up this Friday, but kinda scared now that it's the camera itself.

    Yeah, very disappointing. The graininess reminded me of my old Moto Droid. Not quite as bad as that, but reminiscent. Guess I'll hang out a bit longer with my beat up ol' Optimus until something better comes along.

    These sample shots are much better, so there may be some hope for the camera. Apparently, this photographer knows how to handle a camera and compose to really give an idea how it performs. There are low-light shots, bright sunlit, and cloudy shots.

    What I see is that the default saturation is quite high. Like many Sony cameras, reds, pinks and purples are blown-out (notice the pink or red flower to see an extreme example), but turning down saturation a notch or two might help. There is some pretty high chromatic aberration (purple highlights around bright/dark borders) that you would expect from a consumer grade fast f2.0 optics. Sharpness looks decent, but you will sacrifice some sharpness for faster optics.

    Here's the link of the much better samples: First sample shots with HTC's EVO 4G LTE for Sprint -- Engadget

    I do think the GS3 will be the best camera phone when it comes out for Sprint, but they have no official release date yet?

    Here are some shots from the Padres v. Cubs game at Wrigley Field on Memorial Day. The first panorama was taken with the 4:3 resolution, the second panorama taken with widescreen turned on; I wanted to see if it made a difference when it came to the pano shots and the field of view seems about the same, but the widescreen one crops the top/bottom (more more reason to shoot photos in 4:3 standard mode).

    I've been finding the panorama mode on the EVO to be tricky compared to using the Galaxy Nexus. On the GN you just hit the shutter, pan as much as you'd like, hit the shutter again and there's your shot. The EVO seems to insist that you move a specific amount of distance, like it needs to shoot a full "frame" for each segment and if you don't move far enough you can end up with just a single shot. I need to read up on this feature and play around a bit more with it.

    The other two shots are nearly the same - the first is notable as you can actually see the ball in flight, a good example of how fast the shutter is on the EVO. The second is similar, just composed better

    No touch-ups on any of these other than re-sizing them to 800 max so they would upload. (Note: be sure to click the image that initially pops up as the shadowbox does not display the full size image).

    People are sharing the results they are getting. can you please post a good one you got ? I am wondering maybe there is a difference in some lots that went out ? Mine are definitely blurry no matter what I do.
    maybe try hitting the shutter button on the screen to take a pic. i sometimes find that i will inadvertently move the camera creating a blurry shot when i hit the dedicated camera shutter button.

    I think who ever said the saturation seems high was spot on. I lowered my saturation by 1 click and pictures seem a lot more clear.

    Every comparison ive seen of the GS3 vs HTC one X or Evo = Win for HTC so not sure where the crying about GS3 quality is coming from? If you want inferior quality you don't need to buy a GS3 plenty of cheaper lower quality ones out there?

    Oh and the phone that does take better pictures(lacks alot of options) is the NoTe which sadly gets smoked in every other department.

    Oh and the Note tends to compress images less alot less could be why HTC is a bit off as well?

    I agree the colors are over saturated, but can't find the camera setting to turn it down. Any one point me in the right direction?

    All of my pictures are turning out very fuzzy, and that's when I manage to snap a picture in the half a second the image stays in focus.

    It takes pictures very quickly, but it needs to with how many bad pictures I get. So far the camera on my Nexus One is far superior.
    After further use with my EVO LTE I feel exactly the same way as you. My Nexus S shot better pictures than my EVO LTE does.

    Can someone point me in the right direction for the settings on how to get better pics...all mine are blurry and/or have a red hue to them.

    Thanks in advance guys!

    Open camera then click the gear symbol, then image adjustments. There you will find saturation settings.

    Shots do look soft...hell softer than the HTC One X for someone reason.

    Think some could be improved via software.

    I sure hope HTC addresses the camera issue with a software update, especially since the camera was one of its strong selling points as stated earlier in this thread.

    I'm not a photographer, but I can definitely see that the GS2 camera produces a much better picture than the EVO LTE, without having to make adjustments for every shot taken.

    Maybe we as a community need to make a little more noise through the forums about the poor camera?

    Thats how I feel too, but there were a few folks here hell bent on proving camera is good. It's clearly a far cry even from being a decent camera.

    Will be good if anyone / mods in contact with HTC/Sprint can pass on this info to them. We want them to succeed, will be good for them in the long term or I will be looking at Sammy really seriously.

    People ... People ... People complaining about the camera that on a Phone/GPS/PDA/GAMER/CALCULATOR/MP3 PLAYER/MOVIE PLAYER/BROWSER/ETC ... After all the discounts most of us received, we paid nothing for this device ... If you want a professional camera, go out and buy a dedicated camera ... Those of us who are enjoying the camera on this device aren't taking "money shots" of anything ... We are just having fun ... Relax To tell you the truth, most of us (including myself) could be taking pics with $1500 cameras AND STILL have crappy pics ... lol

    I paid $200 + tax and could have paid the same on GS2, so have full right to compare and enlighten others that camera is not what it was promised to be. Much worse. It's not abt using $1500 camera and still have bad shots, that's a different problem. What we are talking abt is comapritive worse photos.

    Would you be ok if theer was no camera at all on your Phone/GPS/PDA/GAMER/CALCULATOR/MP3 PLAYER/MOVIE PLAYER/BROWSER/ETC ?
