    I love my 9930 and have to give the iPhone 4S some credit where due.
    I went to Lowers earlier and tried to take a picture with my 9930. Wasn't working. Took 10 pictures using closeup mode at all different distances. Couldn't read any. Then I borrowed my sons iPhone 4S and take a look. WOW.

    I just got back from my gf's daughters house. Everyone but me had an iphone and I was the only one able to take awesome pics of the new grand daughter without getting redeye! Yeah I know there's an app for that. But before anyone could fix the redeye with their app I had sent all of them the pic showing her beautiful blue eyes untouched and natural. And everyone witnessed the fact, they all said, "wow, how did you do that"?

    My bold or any phone I have owned is not worthy of a camera. I use a regular digital camera so I know when I take a shot I know I have a good photo. I take close ups all day long and when I email the photos they are much nicer than any photo from a cell phone.

    It's is unreal. I am still amazed such a tiny lens can take a pic like this.

    Thanks Chrysalis, yeah great untouched "Blue Eyes". My gf and her daughters were pissed when all of them got redeye. I think the difference was "not" having auto focus. See there are times when that is not desirable. Hahaha!

    Fact of the matter is..

    Bold 9930/9900 = EDOF (Extended depth of field)
    iPhone 4/4S = AutoFocus

    EDOF can't focus on details up close. That's just a flaw in its design. Not much you can do to correct it. The iPhone will always be better in that sense.

    It's betting RIM won't make this mistake again on their next round of phones.

    One of the advantages of EDOF is the ability to take a picture of an entire room full of people and all of them will be in focus.

    A good photo came from a good photographer.

    Don't need to argue which camera better or better quality.

    Every lens and camera give a different result and every of them have their own ability.

    ya lack of auto focus is my only main gripe with the Bold 9900. That and I wish the eBay app was good.

    Those weren't tiny letters were they?

    The 9900 can make some awesome photos if you take some time and hold the phone steady.
    And I love how it just snap at the moment you click, it's just those stupid close ups... Oh well, it doesn't matter that much, phone is still amazing.

    Yes they are very tiny and yes its from my 9900. You simply have to back up a foot or 2

    I just tried to capture the little text on part of a JB Weld package... no dice...

    Any tricks?

    I do agree with the OP. My wife's 4S has a great camera.

    Other than not being able to do close up shots, I'm fine with the camera on the 9930. For 90% of my photo taking, it's been serving me well. (Although I have a time or 3 pulled out my Style 9670 for a close up and Bluetoothed it to my bold) :P
