    So I've read on this forum that some people if not most, think the camera on the Passport is just horrible. I even saw a thread where some users are simply flat out arguing if it is good or not, lol. That's cool, and totally normal too. But is it bad or good? To me that depends on the user, and what they want from their mobile phones camera. I say if you want picture perfect shots, get a DSLR (and even then you have to work a little, and know how to take pictures). But to me, when I hear people saying that a mobile phone has a bad camera, their standards are too high. The Passport camera while not perfect, can take a pic...a good one at that, if you take a sec to set it up for that good shot. Most of the things I've read, state that it does not focus fast enough, well again...it's a mobile phone. I have the privilege of owning several different mobile phones, and all the way down to my Nokia Lumia 635...it too can take great photos. Here are a few shots take with the Blackberry Passport, and a short video taken at 1080p 60fps. Good or nah!

    It works for me, I don't know what people expect I'm sure it can be refined a bit, it may be a bit slow to focus but it never has bothered me

    I've taken some great photos with the PP. Most people who have problems want to take spur of the moment photos with little or no preparation. I agree that in their case, the camera won't do what they want. Video, however, is amazing. Awesome OIS and quality. I have recorded many of my kids performances - very happy.

    Here's a photo I took the other day....

    Honestly those photos have a bit of haze to them. I don't know if it's because of the camera or an unclean lens. They aren't as clear as the photos I have taken with my Passport.

    I've been pretty happy with the Passport and Classic camera quality. On both the slow focus is annoying. Sometimes it won't even focus at all; I have to move the phone a lot to get it to focus. My Z10 had a great camera.
