View Full Version : Improve the shutter speed of Zire's camera?
08-02-2004, 09:49 PM
Does anyone know of an Application to improve shutter speed? I had the Zire 71 which had slow shutter speeds and now my Zire 72 is not any better ( yes, I know the camera is better) . My little four month old girl is quite the wiggler and I don't always have my regular camera on hand. I would have thought with a much more powerful processor, the Zire 72 would be able to fix the shutter speed problem.
If there isn't anything out now, what are the chances a developer is reading this thread and might be able to come up with something? I'm sure other Zire owners would appreciate this as well.

Yes it is rather slow. But it's just the sound that is delayed. i haven't done any experiments, but maybe the picture is captured the instant you press the button and it's just the sound and the little loading circle that are delayed? I'm just speculating...

Move the Palm or take a picture of something moving and you'll notice what I mean. It doesn't have to be alot of movement to get a blurry picture.

yeah, i knw exactly what u mean. i have a heck of a time holding it still and just a little movement adds blurring. Also, has any1 tried those palm?cell phone camera lens things? if so post some pics :D

I thought about those lenses but until the shutter speed improves, I think the lenses would exaggerate the issue. I hope PalmOne releases a ROM fix, maybe even Cobalt would help if the OS could fully access the processor speed.

Anyone know if there are any tricks to fix the quality of the camera when taking pictures? Has anyone learned of some ways to better use the camera.

These are some tips copied from a newsletter I recieved last week.
Snap to. Here are a few tips to help you get great pictures out of your handheld's built-in camera:
-- Take pictures in bright-lighting conditions. (Low-light or nighttime images may be grainy.)
-- If you use your camera in low light, blue dots may appear on the screen. Many of the dots disappear when you capture the shot.
-- Turn on a lamp, open a window or point a light source at the subject of your photo to improve the lighting conditions.
-- Make sure that the brightest light source is coming from behind you.
-- Hold the camera as still as possible.
-- Keep the subject of the pictures relatively still.
-- Exposure time is longer with lower light levels, so if someone's moving around under low light, you may see a blur.
-- Clean your lens with a soft, lint-free cloth. Oh, and have fun!

open the palm case.
Remove the little black cover - the one with the plastic lens.
Your photos will improve!!!!

Okay... how without breaking it? Do you have any pictures for reference of how you did it? Thanks in advance.
