    I'm sure it has already been explained, but when you save an image in jpg format, it gets compressed, every time. So this photo was taken, the camera takes the raw data, processes and compresses it to jpg. He uploads it to twitter, who then compresses it again in order to resize the photo. Then it gets posted here, who compresses it again to resize it to cb size standards... Basically we need to see the original photo to be able to judge the quality.

    Here we go again!!! I've read in this thread that this pic is noisy (based on the smaller text on the report) we didn't take the shot and have no idea what the camera was set to focus on.....i think it's not fair to judge it as average yet. For me, any phone that delivers this kind of shot consistently and also produces similar quality in low light, focuses quickly and handles shakes and stabilisation fairly well is good enough. If I want anything better, then I'd use a proper camera. I don't need to have to have the best camera on my phone, I just need a very good one. But that's me. I think this shot is good enough for me, I only need BlackBerry to improve significantly if it's way behind the offerings from other devices.

    It's odd how BlackBerry just has never been able to offer an excellent camera. It's always just OK. I guess they've just never considered it important enough to include.

    Yes, just over 0.6 of a megapixal, vs a 12 MP camera. You can expect much quality from the small size.

    Certainly under Lazaridis and Basillie, BlackBerry didn't. It does make some sense, as at the time, they also had to produce handsets without cameras completely for secure environments. It wasn't enough to just remove or disable afterward.

    As for quality, BlackBerry really needs to brand the camera; that way, it doesn't matter if the resolution is low, kinda like FaceTime cameras on iPad's, at 1.2 MP. (being sarcastic here)

    I think you are going too far to say what "we all" want. Different users want different features.

    Well, except it's occupational, you won't need a DSLR always. And when you do, you'd be prepared to carry it ( not in ur pockets).... plus when you do, you'll find that no phone would match up...at least not yet

    Even a decent pocketable point and shoot camera with a zoom lens will do much better than a phone with a fixed wide angle lens.
