Here are some ideas to help you take better pictures with your BlackBerry camera:
- Hold your BlackBerry as steady as possible: This will prevent blurring and any shutter lag or slower shutter speed. Hold your breath while taking pictures, or lean against a solid object to keep you steady.
- Make sure you have lots of light: The blackberry camera performs much better in situations with more light. The built in flash (included in most BlackBerrys) is only really useful for lighting an object or person who is already close to where you are.
- Use “Large” picture size and “Superfine” Quality: This will ensure you take the highest quality pictures at all times. You can always reduce the size of the picture later from your computer. You can set the Large and Superfine settings in the Options settings of your camera (open your camera, click the “Menu” button, select “Options”).
- Use GeoTagging: This allows the BlackBerry to include your exact GPS coordinates in each picture taken (this feature is only available on BlackBerrys that have GPS) . Your friends can easily find out where the picture was taken. Turn on Geotagging either in the Menu list of your camera, or in the Options settings of your camera (open your camera, click the “Menu” button, select “Options”).
