I have two digital cameras. A Kodak Easyshare and a no name cheep 4MP camera.
The Kodak Easyshare took great photos, until I dropped it two years ago putting a huge scratch in the lens. It’s also acting funny. This left me with the cheep 4MP digital camera to take pictures with.
Last winter my wife and I were looking to upgrade our cell phones. Expecting a new addition to the family we decided to go with a smartphone with a high quality camera built into it. This of course narrowed our choices but after doing some research we decided on the Droid X.
The Droid X’s camera is capable of taking photos up to 8MP at 300dpi. It has eight scene setting, flash options, face detection, picture resolution, and the ability to manually set the ISO, and shutter speed.
Very impressive stats, but it’s still a cell phone.
So how good are the photos really? Well after playing with the settings and getting comfortable with the camera I started taking serious photos. And to my surprise I was impressed with the results.
