    Is there hope for the camera???

    The camera and video looks awful! What's up with that? Everything looks so grainy and not colorful. Very disappointed in that. Is there an app or update or setting to improve the quality??
    My crappy 3 mp takes pictures twice as nice, I just don't get it. And I'm not gonna even mention my flash rant.
    Is there hope?

    I could be wrong and there could be some software to help but it's probably a hardware issue that we're stuck with.

    I don't think the Transformer was ever intended to take HQ pictures. My iPhone takes pretty crappy pictures and videos also. These cameras are on board basically for emergencies when you didn't bring a regular camera. Can you imagine the cost of these devices if they put a good camera lens in too? For good pictures and video I have a Cannon T2i for that.

    Not looking for something good but cell phone quality would be nice.

    I have an older model iPhone 3Gs. The Transformer pictures and the iPhone for me are about the same....not too good. That's why my regular cameras are always ready.

    I havent tried the tf camera much yet but on my iPhone 4 it works much better in higher light. Using it outside it takes great pictures. Like someone else said its a matter of cost. Obviously they have a price point that they want to sell at so the designers are limited to what they can use. Its still a better camera than the ipad 2.

    The other thing to consider is the size of the sensors. I shoot with a Nikon D90 and take beautiful pictures with it. I get comments on Facebook about how vivid and great the pictures are. Granted, they were taken at 12 MP, but the version on Facebook is a mere 0.4 MP, yes, less than 1 megapixel. The sensor on my D90 is about the size of a postage stamp. The sensor on the TF is probably the size of half of a pencil eraser, and there are 5 million pixels jammed in there. These smaller pixels are not great in low light. It cranks up the ISO sensitivity and makes them grainy.

    It is not all about the number of megapixes, if you take a 6 MP shot and blow it up to 30X40 and compare it to a 12 MP and a 24 MP and have people look at them from 3' away (who looks at a print that big that much closer) most people (66% or more) will not be able to tell the best from the worst in the proper order. It is more about the sensor size and the lens quality.

    The bottom line is that the cameras in cell phones and tablets are not the point of the tablet. They are there as a gimmick and in general are pretty cheap and dirty. If you are in bright sunlight, they will do quite well as it can use lower ISO values. Indoors, it struggles to get a good video.

    Uh....given proper lighting and a talented photographer (hehe)...it takes pretty good photos.

    Is it as good as my 10MP camera? No.
    Is is acceptable as a 5MP photo....uh...yup - after all - its a secondary feature.

    How awful is awful? A picture says a thousand words. And a video, even more. To me, the TF camera won't produce heirloom-quality art, but for a quick recording of something, I think they're OK enough. Indeed, adding quality lens and sensor without zoom or flash would be an incongruous match. But if you add all that in, then you've got added weight, complication and battery drain... plus the nagging question of "why" -- when you can have all that and more in a camera that's a fraction of the size, weight and cost....
