    *i'm a bit frustrated*...can someone suggest some good basic settings or techniques?
    I would try turning HDR on. If you want to shoot magazine style glamor shots you need a better understanding of what lighting conditions to shoot it in. Once the sun gets below the horizon like that you're not going to get a great shot with a smartphone shooter. You should do a little research on basic photography techniques. There's nothing unique about the S3 other than it doesn't like low lighting conditions like most phone cameras. If you look at my photo it looks good because it's shot in nearly ideal lighting conditions. Sweet ride BTW if that's a real ISF

    Thanks for the tips. After having more time to play with the camera, I've learned that auto-iso is the culprit...it's not accurate in low light and/or mixed light situations. In the picture I posted, auto-iso chose 80 (wtf?). Now I manually use iso 200 in low light and adjust it higher if the flash is activated (I use the flash as a light sensor). I find that iso200 works nicely in most low light scenes. And thanks for the compliment on my car. Yes, It's a real IS-F. I didn't know they made fake ones

    I played with panorama stuff the other night. It worked pretty well, but I noticed it's tough to get a "true" image when you're not level. You can notice a light pole gets doubled in one of the pictures.

    Went to an Eric Church concert over the weekend. This picture was taken with the defaults and zoomed all the way in.

    Just playing around with the panoramic stuff at my kid's swim meet on Saturday.



    EDIT: Can't seem to get this forum to accept a decent sized picture, so have to deal with that small one, I guess.

    I find I can't easily reach the shutter button when I'm shooting one-handed - is there another way to trigger the shutter release?

    Earlier today I posted a question about whether I could trip the shutter anywhere else on the camera and couldn't find anything on the web about it - or in the manual.

    This evening I decided to try an app I used with my Droid 2, which I liked a lot because I didn't have to listen to the annoying shutter click and I could also be more stealthy in my shooting.

    With Vignette, you can tap anywhere on the screen and the picture gets taken...without any sound, if you desire.

    Lots of nice features. Check it out.

    You can turn on the voice command settings and I believe the word is "cheese", and it'll take a photo

    Just as I've experienced with every digital camera I've owned, it is necessary to use a minus exposure value outside on a bright sunny day - or you will get burnt out (pure white lacking detail) areas on your image.

    Just tap the gear menu at the bottom left and then Exposure Value and slide down one or two notches - watch the picture get better looking!

    You should do this for any picture where there is a very bright area in the image that is important - however, if you're going to crop it off - don't bother.

    Probably the combination of a slightly dirty lens and the extreme contrast in the scene. There was very strong direct sunlight reflecting off of the aluminum trim.

    How did I manage to choose that option?

    How do I turn that off?

    I don't want Backup Assistant to collect them either.

    How do you set your phone?

    Last night just before dark there was a weird lighting effect going on. When I got out of the tree cover and looked up I knew why. The undersides of the clouds were pink and gray, but the tops were golden yellow where the setting sun touched them. There was thundering and lightning in the distance. Cropped and tweaked in Lightroom 4.

    Wow the upload compression algorithm is terrible. Forget the thumbnail below. Here's a link to a better picture.
