    When I make a picture with my 6600 and view them on my PC, I see that the
    pictures made are not quite sharp! Is this a fault in my 6600, or are move
    people having this?

    A 'normal' digital camera has a 'resolution' of 3 Mp or more. The 6600 has
    only 640 x 480 pixels, is only 0,3 Mp, which is relative (compared with
    other phones)good. In the near future we get gsm-camera's of 1 Mp (better,
    but still not a real camera).

    That's the way it is. Not just on 6600 mind you, but on absolutely any camera
    phone on the market; it's adequate for sending and display on a small screen,
    but looks like crap on a real screen.

    Note that some pictures will work better than others. Like if there is a lot
    of (or rather: any) difference in lighting in the image then crap will likely
    be the result. However an object in even and adequate indirect lighting may
    come out ok, especially after reducing the image size by about 50% using image
    editing software. So out of 640 x 480 you end up with an acceptable looking
    image of abotu 320 x 240. IF lighting was adequate and even, that is. ;-)

    Cheers,

    Aye, I've had some good pics with the 6600 after loading them up in
    Photoshop CS, applying Auto Levels, 50% sharpening and resize to 320x240.
    Actually they are pretty damn good and thats a statement from a keen amateur
    digicam user with the EOS1D SLR digicam! One thing important though is to
    clean the glass lens cover on the 6600 before taking pics. Smudgy
    fingerprints will make the pics look less sharp and more blurry.

    Its also quite sensitive to motion .. both of the camera or the subject ..
    still pics where you can hold the phone still while taking come out a lot
    better than when your moving, or the subject is in motion ..

    I have a VERY similar problem (get my drift!?)

    When I make a call with my Minolta 700si, I sometimes find that the
    reception, and transmission is really quite poor.

    I have found that to improve this, the caller, or indeed the person that I
    am calling, would be best suited in being no longer than, say 30metres away.
    This works quite well, and the transmission.reception is quite acceptable.
    For OPTIMUM performance, and crisp, clear reception/transmission, I have
    found that the BEST distance is about 8-10 meters. This way, both parties
    have truly acceptable conversations. Better still, ensure that ears are
    cleaned of wax first.

    Get my drift??
    "Horses for courses"

    Now, where's my Swiss Army knife. I need to write a note :-))

    Yes: Normal mode sometimes comes out better than night-mode, even when it's
    relatively dark. Night-mode seems to cause some distortion and blueish
    'flakes' that are less apparent in normal mode. Also the problem getting a
    good image where part of the image is lighted brightly (or when there are
    direct light-sources visible) seems to worsen in night-mode.

    I'm not a digital camera specialist, but I know that much that the pixel
    resolution of the camera is not all that counts, and in this case maybe not
    even important at all. The image could be sharp even at the resolution of
    640 x 480, but it's the optics in whole that what kind of image quality the
    camera can produce.

    It is very important, but a normal eye cannot see sharper than 300 dpi on a
    print. So if you have a real camera with a good lens (not a fix focus small
    piece of plastic like in de GSM-phones), you do not see the difference on a
    normal print (10x 15 cm) between a camera of 3 Mp an a expensive camera with
    8 Mp. But if you only have 0,3 Mp the print is only sharp if you have a very
    small picture. Compare it with an old matrix-printer with seven pins to
    format a sign and a modern inkjet-printer who has at least 10 times more
    pixels per sign.

    Another problem is, they use crappy CMOS chips, not the more expensive
    CCD technology.

    Not just expensive, but very hard to power. Not the kind of

    I do not need a camera anyway in my phone But for those rare
    moments when I would use this camera the higher power consumption
    would not be a problem at all. Or does really anyone go around and
    take hundreds of photos with a mobile phone??

    Really? Then maybe those are the non-crappy CMOS chips :-) I have also
    a Canon digital camera, only a cheaper one, I have to find out what
    they use...interesting! But mainly I use a "real" camera, not a
    digital one *g*
