Cell phone cameras: capturing the moment in blotchy detail: This story says what I recently learned to be true: the pictures on the ads for camera phones are complete lies.
The photos are grainy, blotchy and blurry, but for millions of people now toting cell phones with built-in digital cameras, it doesn’t seem to be about the megapixels
My brother-in-law visited over Christimas and he had one of the super high-end camera phones with all the bells and whistles. The sad truth: the picture quality is plain awful. After taking about a dozen with my daughter, I finally ended up with one where another family member could recognize her. I laugh whenever I see the ads on TV showing the pixel-perfect sample images.
Update: The author of the first comment displays some sample pictures here. They’re actually not too bad. Anyone else want to show some samples?
