Samsung galaxy s2

Thought i would share some pics taken by my 16 yr old off his Samsung Smart Phone

Only levels tweaked ever so lightly and Smart Sharpen at 65% and 1.3 radius

I would say quite impressive coming from such a dinky sensor

Yeah, really nice. My Samsung Droid Charge (a US-only model, afaik) has a very similar camera module and I find it to be quite nice for a phone camera as well.

Camera phones have come a long way, but I struggle a lot more composing with an LCD of any sort than with a viewfinder (I also can't control camera shake very well in that situation).

Also why I couldn't get myself buying into the Nex system or similar - especially in bright sun which SA has a lot of.

I'm finding the EVF for the NEX-5N helps a lot with this, though I'm still not 100% sold on keeping it (the system, not the EVF).
