    I think more light and make sure to avoid any bright lights in the background.

    I take most of my pics outside but I would say that I have
    found the iPhone to have the highest picture quality I have
    had from a cellphone. Better than the Blackberry Pearl,
    VX9800, VX6000 and Razr my mom has.

    I have had many different camera phones -- Razr, Slvr, Sony Ericcson -- and none of those pictures come close to the quality of my iphone. My pictures are close to the quality of my digital camera. Am very surprised anyone would fault the iphone pictures.

    crazy alien,

    "Good" and "bad" are subjective, so what's bad for you may not be bad for someone else. Of course, the iPhone pictures are not DSLR quality, but remember that for a mobile device, the iPhone's camera takes pictures that are suitable for web viewing and local sharing.

    The suggestion is, if you want "good" pictures, then get a digital camera. You shouldn't be whipping out the iPhone and expect pictures worthy enough to go in your family Christmas cards; after all, the iPhone's camera is ONLY 2 megapixels.

    Try shooting on a clear day, outside, and see how the photos turn out. Cellular cameras, for indoor low-light shots, are never usually wise anyway.
