Is your camera quality any better or worse than this?

    I took this pic earlier while running out to get some food. Every pic I take seems to have a haze or halo to it. Is this normal? Some parts of it look fine, some look really blown out whenever light is present. Even at night when there is a light in the picture it seems to have it's own halo or haze.

    quite honestly, that picture is better than the photo I get with my treo 700. I think it is great quality for a phone photo.

    here are some pics in different lighting conditions... not sure if it helps... but yours seems to have too much of a green tint..

    Ive never been impressed with any of the pics Ive taken. Ive seen some pictures that people claim to have been taken from their iphone that look as good as anything I take on my 5mp Canon.

    Seems like all the photos have this haze to them. Pretty much answers my question. :)

    I think the green tint was the effect of the factory tint of the glass on the Jag.

    There are many factors which could change the quality of the photographs clicked from the iPhone. Some days I get very crappy snaps and on other days I feel like a photographer.

    here are some more for ya... these are a little bit nicer...

    i think it all depends on the lighting... outside and sunny makes for some better pics.

    The pics in this thread remind me of an old camera that I had with a plastic lens.

    Does the iPhone have a glass or plastic lens?

    god I hate using the iPhone camera... it feels so out of place on the device... so under-developed and full of little problems.

    That food looks delicious! As I am on a diet could you please tell me whether that plate contains food that is less than 5000 calories?

    Photos look good. Not sure about the dog though (the pet).

    5,000 calories is a diet?

    Got one of those myself (CLK). I just snapped this in low light. Doesn't seem to matter what light I am in, I get a haze to my photo's. I'm just not getting the same quality. (yes I wiped the lens off)

    (No idea why this rotated when it uploaded)

    I'm just going to assume my lens is defective from scratches or something.

    After that thought crossed my mind I looked...... yep, it's scratched. Having shot with DSLR's for many years I am aware of what happens when a lens gets scratches. A lot of light reflections that makes for haze.

    I see no way to truly protect the lens on this phone. There is no cover, it is not recessed in the hole in any way, and it is not a replaceable lens.

    Hello apple, are you listening? These cameras are going to be useless on used phones after a while.

    I suggest you guy's put a piece of tape over your lens.

    Do you have a case for your iPhone? It sure doesn't look like that...

    My Camera is scratch free.

    Wow. Stunning picture.

    I'm very impressed with the image quality shown in this thread. I'll be ordering my iPhone on September 25th, and i'm glad to see that the quality is this good.

    Just an example, the pic of the dog and woman sitting on the deck in this very thread. Ive taken hundreds of pictures in all kinds of lighting and none have come out as clear and sharp as these.

    Remember, the iPhone is auto-focus, so if the phone can't pick a focal ground, you'll picture will be hazy.
