why not? It sounds like an interesting photographic project, by the way, so you'd better use your best tool.
back to your issue.
we're removing one variable at a time: now you shoot try to pass your phone to someone who gets pics right with his own phone and see if it has something to do with your personal technique. or you can try with someone else's hox. I don't want to sound too harsh, just do not rule out any possibility.

Not harsh at all. I appreciate it. I tried it...friend of mine took my phone and I took his. I got a really good picture, he got it blurry. Definitely, it is my phone.

Well, i wrote it might look weird, but it works for me. Why it works? Probably because lenses are still mechanical, and for some reason they dont move to reach focus...

Here you have samples, before



and after



"the trick":

Re: The HTC One X Camera Support thread
Worst camera i had since omnia 2. ( well it's my gf's but anyway)
Bad auto focus while shooting video. Twitchy too. Indoor low light is just awefull out of focus blurry grainy...t-mobile wouldn't take it back but was aware of the issue. Htc wouldn't either but denied knowledge of an issue.

I searched on the net and found like a dozen threads about this crap camera and put it to them like this :

"these are my findings on the web. You will take back this phone of wich you advertise it has a good camera but is just not working properly as it damn well should for that kind of money, or will sue you."

She now has a galaxy s3.
Much better.

Haha, true somehow - but i bought this device not to become a star photographer rather to use it as a smartphone.
When it's bright, the camera is quite okay - without enough light it is grainy and a kind of green ( ) . The front camera is awefull - anyway, i like the phone

I KNOW, it sounds like a pile of bull****, but works for me...

It works for me putting the hand in front of the the camera, but I test this method too, and works too. hehehee Thanks.
