    Default Why is the camera quality on Z10 still lacking?

    http://cdn.crackberry.com/files/blac...rison-1400.jpg

    Looks blurry and smokey even with AF..

    9900 was a big let down because of the camera.. and i thought RIM would make a better camera this time. Seriously, the new OS is cool but the camera will make me think twice.

    Rim Has never figured out how to put a good camera in a phone. This is at least an improvement though

    Not comparing it to any digital camera, just other phones. Some pictures took by iphones on the web are amazing. My 1st gen iphone even takes better pictures than 9900. I guess i will stick with my 9900 for a bit longer until the real user reviews come out.

    This. But in order to woo customers you have to bring something better to the table. What good is the time-shift feature if the camera takes crap photos.

    No push, hardly any native apps, crappy camera, no gorilla glass. Is this a budget phone being sold at a premium price?

    Gorilla glass is over rated anyway because even iphones get fine scratches over time. A film protector will do the job just fine.

    As for the hardware parts of the bb10, my guess is that RIM will sell the hardware department so they can care less about the spec, as the rumor suggested. Dual core CPU and 8MP camera are out dated spec, comparing to devices that were launched last year, such as HTC Butterfly, Samsung S3 or iphone 5

    Dual core Processor is fine and the 2GB RAM is great. Blackberry need to get the experience right and a spec war with Android is going to get them nowhere.

    A crap camera with nifty software is just a NO. Camera's have become an integral part of the mobile experience and not being up to industry standard is inexcusable.

    Its confirmed Gorilla Glass but who cares? Dropped once and it will shatter just like an Iphone.

    Glass is glass.

    I used an S3 and it took better pictures then what were shown there... So I am not really going to base the camera quality off of this test for the Z10 pictures. Just my opinion.
    Former: Motorola MicroTac- Motorola V120x - Nokia 3280 - Audiovox 8600 - Audiovox 8410 - Samsung A920 - LG Vx8500 (Chocolate) - BlackBerry Pearl 8130 - LG Vx9700 (Dare) - BlackBerry Curve 8530 - BlackBerry Torch 9800 - BlackBerry Torch 9810

    Current: BlackBerry PlayBook 64GB WiFi; BlackBerry PlayBook 32GB WiFi; BlackBerry Z10!!!

    Indeed. Very disappointed with the camera. All talk. Sure, it has nifty features, but the camera quality is also a big deal when purchasing a phone - in my opinion. If only there was a phone with BB Z10's keyboard and with iPhone 5 or Lumia 920's camera. I'd be in heaven.

    i'll wait to pass judgement on the camera until its in my hands and i'm the one taking pictures with it.

    also to the posters talking about gorilla glass. its just a product with a name. bb-bmore has got it right. i've seen many iphones that have seen better days.

    I am coming from a 9900 so anything will be an improvement to that camera....

    If it can take up close pictures of text in a well lit place then I will be overjoyed.

    The camera on the 9000 and the 9810 are AWESOME. I am sad to hear that folks think the camera is not up to par with the models of the past. I hope to see a detailed picture thread started up soon.

    In good light the camera on the 9800/9810 is quite good. Also by playing with the settings, there is zero shutter lag. I look forward to comparing.

    So far iPhone 3GS, 4s and 5 have the most usable cameras with very good image quality.

    The camera on the 9800 has always been pretty good for me, and I use it, a lot. Auto-focus doesn't always work right away.
    Haven't tried the 9900's camera, but I doubt the Z10 is going backwards with it's camera...

    The comparison pics that Kevin posted are rough. It hurts me to see BlackBerry, especially a new one off the bat, be the underdog in every shot he posted in contrast. I don't see why they would need to stray much from the 9000 or 9810 cameras.

    lol I hear that. I mean- there is no question that a ZED 10 will be in my hands when it can be but I don't know . . . . I may be keeping my 9810 around as well as backwards as that sounds for both of us to say lol
