Downed by the capturing camera again

PocketPersonal Computer (PC) are probably bottom of the ladder when it comes to capturing camera performance. It's not about the megapixel count. It's just that their photos are really nothing to speak of. Regrettably, the no autofocus 2 megapixel capturing camera of HTC Touch produces poor photos, compared to other phones with the same megapixel count.

The capturing camera menu is easy to operate with your fingers only. White balance can be either automatic or custom set to daylight, night, incandescent or fluorescent. You can apply several color effects (Grayscale, Sepia, Cool, Negative) and utilize the special capturing camera modes such as Sports and Burst. In Burst mode the capturing camera takes a total of 30 snapshots relatively quick for you to choose from but they are in Video Graphics Array (VGA) resolution only. In Sports mode it takes a series of up to 3 shots. Unfortunately, the Panorama mode is missing, as opposed to the HTC TyTN II. The capturing camera can also apply Date stamps to your photos.

Photos taken with HTC Touch suffer detail loss, sharpening artifacts and chromatic aberrations. We were unable to interpret the results using EXIF data, as no readings were available on ISO level, lens, speed and other relevant data. Generally, the capturing camera is not among the worst 2 megapixel modules, but has to undergo significant improvements to achieve the quality level of, say, Sony Ericsson K750.

"... Photos taken with HTC Touch suffer detail loss, sharpening artifacts and chromatic aberrations. However, the capturing camera is not among the worst 2 megapixel modules. When it comes to video, the capturing camera captures MPEG4 video in the inadequate QCIF resolution (176x144 pixels) at 10fps, which is way unacceptable ..."
