Post your High Res Curve images for comparsison.
I'm not getting good results from my 8300 Curve camera. The pictures aren't sharp, mostly blurry. I'm holding as steady as possible with my hand propped on a stable surface. I'd like to see how my image compares to other Curves out there and determine if my camera is faulty or if it's normal.
Please compare only images taken at the highest resolution of the camera.

Please note: I'm a professional photographer so please don't lecture me on image quality out of a cell phone camera, I know it's more of a novelty item on the phone but i just want to make sure my camera isn't faulty.

Here's my image, notice the Crystal Lite box. What do you guys think?

I don't think that is a bad image for a 2mp camera phone. about how mine are coming out.

I think it's a matter of likely having your expectations set too high as to what a cameraphone can produce in terms of image quality. Even the lowest-end dedicated digicams out there today offer 2-3X the Mexapixels, highly superior optics, longer focal lengths, far superior CCD's for image processing, etc etc etc. They are dedicated cameras and even the worst of them is designed to deliver a print-quality image.

OTOH, a cameraphone is an "add-on" device to most US cell phones. It was an afterthought, not designed to be core to the functional capabilities of the unit. It's a gimmick designed to appeal to consumers. I can state for a fact that the component-level pricing of the camera optics and CCD unit in the Curve, Pearl or just about any other camphone is less than 1% of the total cost of the entire device.

So if you were really expecting the cameraphone to rival even a 3-year old digicam, you'll be disappointed. It's just not up there.

That said, holding the device steady, only taking pictures outdoors of static images (landscape, houses, cars, etc) or for small on-screen snapshots (used as caller ID tags and such), it's fine. It just takes a bit more practice.

I should also note a more obvious issue for many of the cameraphone images I've seen. People forget to clean the lens as it's flush with the back of the unit and their hands are always touching it. That accounts for more smudgy pictures than many care to admit.

sorry was going to post but, they'll have to be resized. There should be a larger setting open for uploading images.

The camera has been pretty decent for me. No complkaints really, though I am looking into possibly swapping out the unit because of speakerphone sound (though awsome with my music) and also a sound every now and again from the sideboards
