We got about 4 or 5 inches of snow overnight, giving me a chance to try out my new camera.
The Winter scenes above were taken with the camera on my new Droid X cell phone. The camera installed on the latest phones are pretty remarkable. Clicking on the images above will give you an image that is 1600 X 902 pixels. This is only about half of what the 8 MPs camera actually gets, which is 3264 X 1840. The quality of the images is amazingly good, considering the lens is only about 1/16" in diameter. This lens does double duty, since it is also used for HD video that can be watched on a big screen HD TV (something I need to try as soon as I get an HD cable that connects the phone and the TV).
This in no way takes the place of my Canon camera and lenses. I have quite a bit more control with my Canon equipment than I do with my Droid X, but for a point and shoot camera, I can be sure to get a high quality image when I don't have my Canon with me. I just have to be aware of its limitations, but for a phone, it can take some really nice pictures at a moments notice.
