    Cameras in phones are all racing to add more pixels to their cameras but no matter how many are added, there is a problem as none I've seen use backlighting adjustments. The iPhone 5 takes nice photos in bright light but when I stand before something brightly lit, I appear as a silhouette. Using the built-in flash doesn't help either. Why haven't they addressed this issue? A simple backlight switch would help.

    Re: Cameras in Phones

    This is a limitation on all phones with the physical size of the photo sensor,ISO, and physical limitations of the lenses. It's not as simple as a backlight mode. The camera will automatically adjust for how much light is available. A backlight mode will just lower the shutter speed and try to up the ISO more, resulting in a grainy and/or blurry photo.

    Nokia has addressed this to an extent by making their sensors larger (and able to handle high ISO), and physically larger and better lenses.
