Default Giving Up On Pictures And Video

Please Login to Remove!

I've had many smartphones and PDA's, and aside from the Nokia N82, most smartphones lack the quality I seek when taking pictures and video. I want a xenon flash, and I want better video quality. There is no Blackberry I fancy for its picture and video quality, and I've even considered the new iPhone 3G S, but the latter also sucked in picture and video quality. Video taken on my Blackberry Bold looks cheap when played back, and I don't like the video quality of iPhone 3G S much better. The cheap picture and video quality may lead you to believe that the picture quality in the Bold is not so good, but after watching the sample Speed Racer video you know that the screen has the capability to produce beautiful pictures and video, but they unfortunately reveal the device's limitations.

I found a solution to the problem, guys. Forget about the picture and video in your device and use them only if the hot blonde with huge knockers walks by on the street. For the videos you want to show your friends of your home, your car, or anything else presentable, don't shoot it with your device in the first place. Instead, capture your media with a dedicated digital camera or camcorder, and for video I recommend a good optical zoom and saves video in MP4 format, preferably H.264. (If it saves in another format, you'll need a converter.) Since you'll be on your desktop anyway to transfer, you can edit pictures and video using either photoshop or a video editor and do tricks far better than what iPhone 3G S offers. Save them in MP4 format and transfer to your Blackberry via Media Sync. Voila! You'll have pictures and videos in your phone that take full advantage of your device's capabilities, and the high-quality pictures and videos will impress everyone.
