These pictures were taken with both firmwares about 8 minutes apart (updated in the park) on the same phone and in roughly the same light. I would have been faster but there was a Dutch family taking pictures and I didn't want to have them in the picture.

Great job! Is nice to see some actual comparisons behind everyone's anecdotal comments that the camera is better in 257. Thanks for the proof. :thumbup:

Perfect! I was wondering if the improvement only applied to Superior Auto mode, Burst, Panorama and what not but not the Manual. Turns out it seems to really be on their post-processing software and not just the various modes!

This made my day and I'm excited to shoot even more stuff with the new firmware. Thanks!

P.S. 8 Minute update time is really fast! I updated mine through SUS around 2 hours :P

I had the download finished, all it took was the flash and reboot. Was amazed, too, considering it takes about 3 hours for my HTC phones to upgrade.
