    my playbook camera seems really grainy / fuzzy whenever i try to take a picture or video

    i am running latest 2.0 beta, but prior to that i had not even tried to take a photo with the playbook, so i can't be sure it is a problem with the beta, and haven't read anything saying "2.0 borks camera"

    i am trying to upload a couple photos i took of my modified 9810, was originally going toncreate a "custom 9810" thread with the pictures, but i noticed the pictures didn't seem to turn out that great... hmmm

    hope i don't have a faulty playbook camera, i think a replacement part is half as much as another playbook, lol

    - image stabalization is on
    - lens isn't smudged or scratched either

    i hope the pictures uploaded

    Grainy is most likely low light bucky
    Fuzzy is lack of autofocus for close shots.

    Happy New year!

    Check the p rating on the camera..... did you take it in say... 420p or 780p or 1080something?

    Crank up the floodlights, a halogen lamp or something and step back a few feet, or wait til morning and take it outside.

    Yes, pg13 would make it super fuzzy.

    Google Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson. Read it.

    Set your ASA @ 64, shutter speed @ 500, and aperture @ 16, and you should eleiminate the "fuzzies."

    Lighting is the biggest factor when it comes to getting good quality pics with the PlayBook

    i agree, lighting is the key... the brighter the lights around the subject, the better... at least when it comes to the PB...

    Yes, I have also noticed that the PlayBook camera takes better pictures with more light

    It's the way the current pb camera is

    I also want to be able to take close-up shots with the pb but currently the camera is not set-up to do it. I'm hoping it's just a software thing because in a teardown of the pb it was stated the camera is the Torch camera. I'm hoping OS2 let's us take close-ups.

    Currently, if I need close-ups I use my 9800 and upload the file to the pb.
