The best camera is the one you have with you and we pretty much always have our smartphones with us. With many Android phones, the camera alone will sell the device for some customers. Needless to say, there are plenty of apps in the Play Store that cater to all kinds of shutterbugs and their smartphone cameras for when the built-in camera application on your phone just doesn’t cut it.
Point and shoot cameras have slowly fallen to the wayside thanks to the rising popularity of smartphones, so manufacturers have had to take a different approach to keeping their camera businesses alive.
There's mounting evidence that the tendency to favour smartphones over standalone cameras isn't just tanking compact camera sales – it's affecting DSLR and interchangeable lens cameras, too. A new WSJ report claims that DSLR camera shipments could fall 9.1 percent by the end of 2013, versus 2012, according to research firm IDC.
Hi guys I am uploading pictures to my server using MVC. But I want to be able to differentiate between Photographs from a Digital Camera/Camera Phone and Drawings/Other Graphics. At the moment I am just checking the extensions for Jpegs. Due to the number of Smartphones and Digital Cameras in market I am not sure if all of them use the standard Jpeg extensions.
I have a custom camera view that extends SurfaceView. Sets the following params. The images appear blurred on Nexus 7 Generation 2 Back Camera that has a 5 MP camera. These are the following parameters that I am setting for the Camera. I don't have this issue at all on phones and other tablets.
Since I have hard time to find free Spy Camera for me, I decide to create my own.
And because I don't have much android phones, I will be grateful if you can test on your device and give feedback here and at the market.

Toshiba just announced a new dual camera module for smartphones, tablets, and mobile devices. It uses two 1/4 inch optical format 5-megapixel CMOS camera modules that will simultaneously output recorded images and depth data. This means that after the image is captured, the module can change the depth of field and point of focus.
I know a lot of people talk about the camera a lot and how bad or good it is. I am not going to do that. Simply I will just talk about my experiance with it so far.
The m8 camera take a really good pictures if you are sharing it in Facebook, Instagram or other social media. I have used a lot of phones before and what I like most about it is how fast the camera open and snap a picture.
