An interesting note for those of us who own treo smartphones:

The camera adjusts for lighting and focusing based on 2 parts, what you're looking at and what's around you. If you are surrounded by darkness, but your subject is brightly lit, it will wash out your subject and you won't be able to get and definition on the lines, and needless to say the color will mostly be white. With the same light on the subject but moderate light around (not directed towards) you and the camera, the pics can come out great in 1x and still decent in 2x. If there is too much light surrounding you and the camera, or being directed at the camera, the image's colors may be alright but very blurred, with lots of noise and distortion. This last scenario is actually the easiest to correct, you can use your hand or an object off to the side to block or diffuse light that would be directed at you but not be part of the shot. This pic is an example, there's a wooden beam onstage that I moved to the side of to get this shot.

1 Well the treo 650 doesn't have a great camera by anyone's definition(640x480), it can still yield some good pics!

I'll keep this thread updated as I get more...

Hello wizbummer,

While I appreciate your enthusiasm for the Treo, it is not considered a hybrid, which are the subject of this portion of the site.

There is a section specifically for posting photos.
