    Looks alright I guess, not sure what the haze in the picture is from either the glass window of your office building, the weather, a dirty camera lens, or just the picture quality.

    I guess I can enhance this with PS or iPhoto. ;) :)

    There is a surprising amount of detail in that photo. I hope you don't mind but I couldn't resist seeing how well it held up to magnification in PSE and then adjusting it a bit.

    You got a great cell phone camera. Samsung makes some nice things.

    Here is the Original Picture and my Edited one. :)

    Compression of the edited picture might look grainy.

    Not bad for a phone . . . I took a stab at cleaning it up as well . . . came out not too bad.

    -Used S-Spline to interpolate a new image at twice the pixel dimensions (1292 wide). This helps to clean up some of the jpeg artifacting and cleans up the edges.

    -Opened the new image in Photoshop.
    -Manually adjusted the levels to bring out the warm tones (reds mostly)
    -Manually adjusted the Brightness and Contrast
    -Used dodge/burn tools to bring out some the shadow detail and clear up the haze a little.

    -Resized back to original resolution

    Time spent: about 2 min. I guess cellphone cameras could prove to be useful.

    I think I may have ended up with a little too much cyan tone in the sky though. . .

    I'm actually surprised at how good that is for a cell phone. I should get that phone. I cant even take ANY pictures :eek: . Not that I'd need to though. :p

    I've found my camera phone invaluable for those occasions where I want to make my friends jealous of where I am :p or when I want a quick snap of the moment and don't have my regular camera around. Quick postcards back home when I'm on trips are also appreciated! And the 'fish-eye' effect doesn't matter quite so much on another phone.

    Here are a few I've taken that aren't bad - I find the quality goes rapidly downhill as soon as the lighting gets darker. Having said that, it's always worth checking what firmware your phone is running - my k700i was updated over Christmas from its original July firmware and its camera capability has got a lot better since.

    3 pics attached - MNF at Lambeau Field, St Louis from top of the arch and game 7 of Cardinals/Astros NLCS game.

    Here's a few cell photos from Chicago. An artist from Madison, Wisconsin had an installation in Grant Park downtown using old computers as flowerpots. All PCs except for one old iMac.I actually like the soft slight fisheye look my Moto V600 gives me. It's fun to blowup photos from this camera to poster size and mess with them.

    Thanks.

    Crippled Bluetooth aside, it's an awesome phone.

    i just got my camera phone last night and im so fascinated with it lol. it's a sony t637, very easy to use, lovely themes (got an panther one on there :p) bluetooth is awesome, tiny, and free. piece of crap camera though. 352x288 and you need pretty bright light to get a good pic. anyway, story behind this pic, favorite one so far from the phone: got off the school bus this morning with my friend and was showing him my phone and took a pic but he flicked me off. pretty cool lol. it's my background on my phone. not sure why i think it's so cool...

    Here's a picture from my T610. Beautiful isn't it. I sent in a different 610 for a warranty repair and this is what I got back. :mad:

    I hear that Verizon crippled its bluetooth abilities, but it may be different here in canada because it is through telus.

    I got a Motorola C650 a few months ago. I'm very disappointed with the camera quality. I've not used the camera much after I found out how bad the pictures are. However, the phone, combined with my T-Mobile service is fantastic.

    Jaggies are very noticeable and everything is washed out. Maybe I have something on the camera setup incorrectly.

    Here in Japan, it's not uncommon for phones to have really good quality. I have a friend whose phone is normally sized and has a 2 megapixel camera.
