I have taken a few images with the "BlackBerry Storm" Camera Phone. It is 3.2 mega pixels. That is a nice for a camera phone. The snap shots were decent but that is all they are is snap shot images. The BlackBerry is lacking the nice lens of other camera phones, Carl Zeiss. It does have flash and is quiet. It has auto focus. The software has some issues still but you can send photos to your friends easily. It also takes videos. The button for activating the camera is on the center right which works well enough.
The battery does not have a very long life at all. My old phone can go over a week without needing a charge if I am not doing anything with it. The view screen, which is a touch screen is pretty good. Photos look better on the phone screen than when downloaded into a computer and viewed full sized or printed out. Still it is much better than the first digital camera I ever had.
The flash is an LED flash and surprisingly it lights up very well for night time imaging. The flash comes on while the camera focuses. It does a better job of lighting on the closer images. Photos taken of objects a bit further away were more grainy. If you are, say, taking a photo of a reflective sign close up then it looks great.
Macro pictures during the day are a bit to soft and fuzzy around the edges. Still it is decent for taking images of notes you need to keep handy and that sort of thing. The macro shots are clear enough for those simple things. It is a quick answer for things you may normally need to scan, or if you're a spy taking photos of documents, maybe.
The storm seems to also respond slowly to movements but is decent used as a hand held camera, which is as it is intended to be used, if you hold very still. It is not as responsive to movement as the Motorola 5MP however. The BlackBerry images distort more. I have found the day time colors lacking. The images tend to be duller than real life even when clear and with good lighting. This is annoying but still better than some of the cheaper camera phones. In conclusion it will get decent and usually clear shots but they do not pop because the color is faded and you do need to hold the camera still to get the best shots.
