Default Photo quality on Jam not so bad! Examples inside

I was playing with my Jam earlier and took a few test shots, they are not too bad.

Some claim it's worse than a 7250, which it clearly is not.

DONATE TO ME
It is a 1.3mp camera. The resolution only relates to the size of the picture not the quality. Still wish it's quality was better though!

I dont think it's too bad. I will take some more pictures in daylight, I had some great pics but then had to hard reset (

I think the software is partly to blame for the quality, I just hope its not terrible hardware as that cant be fixed.

From the pictures you provided and my own observations from using the camera, it appears to me that several factors contribute to the poor quality:

* bad light sensitivity
* amplification noise
* washed out colors
* poor focus

The light sensitivity has to do with using a cheap CMOS based camera. The grain and noise that can be seen stems from amplifying the CMOS signal significantly to produce a viewable image. The colors looks like a software problem. Poor focusing comes from using a plastic lens with fixed focus.

Better firmware could sort out the washed out colors, and it might be possible to decrease the amount of noise in the amplificiation process. I believe however that at best the camera will pass as poor.
