Your pic resolution is set up too high. When taking a picture, hit options, and look for picture resolution.

I have A1203 I phone 8 gb, when i am trying to take picture, i am not able to zoom the camera, can any one tell me how to work on zoom while taking pictures.


Hi!
Zoom ability is implemented in iOS4. You have iphone 2G, so there is no official way, you can have iOS 4 on your device. And I do not recommend to use iOS4 on 2G/3G devices, because hardware of these devices is too slow. But you can try search AppStore for some camera apps, there should be zoom ability.
Hope it Helps.

Tip

How do I take Better Pictures with my Smartphone Camera


<p>Camera phones have come a long way in recent years, but they do not always point and shoot quality images on the first try. See how the best quality photos from the camera pressed to your smart phone. <br /> <p>All phones and cameras are different, so your mileage may vary according to a tip. While most camera phones suffer from similar weaknesses (particularly the inability to make good pictures in low light), each also has its peculiarities. The iPhone, for example, usually takes pictures with a color very good, while the Droid often produces colors that are less than stellar. That said, most of these tips can be applied to your favorite phone and camera application quite easily. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Clean your lens - may sound crazy, but give your lens a wipe down before you start taking pictures with your phone. While most people are very good at keeping their dirty fingers away from camera lenses is not as easily done with camera phones. If you have a dirty lens, none of the other tips in this article your picture is less a waste, so keep that in mind. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Use Your Light - It is important, with all the cameras to make sure that your subject is the source of light and you're not, but even more important with camera phones. The biggest weakness is the inability to make good pictures in low light, which means that you generally want as much light as you can possibly get on the subject. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Avoid Digital Zoom - You've probably heard that a million times, but we cannot stress enough how often this function is useless. As you approach a topic, you are much better closer to them. If you cannot, you can always crop the photo later, everything is digital zoom really does, you can always cut down, but you cannot appear. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Give attention to the flash - Sure, LED flashes in a recent hyped smartphone cameras, but they are not all that is cracked up to be. If you do not have enough light to work, they can at least make sure you have an image, but many phones tend to use it more often than necessary, and that white light LED can be really difficult. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Go to your smartphone camera settings - depending on your phone and the camera application that comes with it, you can use some settings you can customize before taking a photo. In almost all cases, however, you can do better, grabbing a camera more advanced application, such as camera zoom or camera FX Android + iPhone. <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Check the resolution of your camera - Most applications have a camera setup to take pictures at different resolutions. Lower resolutions are fun if you're a quick photo via MMS and they will save on your phone faster, but if you take a picture you want to keep, you better take it at a higher resolution. It is a clear and simple to adjust, but something you definitely want to check before you start snapping, there's nothing worse than taking two very nice photos, only to find when you put them on your PC that they just 640x480. (Also worth noting, some phones resize photos if you send them, make sure to send a full resolution of quality issues.) <br /> <p><br /> <p>7. Turn on the stable settings of your phone camera - Phones are difficult to maintain constant start your shutterbug, and is sometimes difficult to detect the blur of an image unstable on a small screen. Although you can always rest your elbows on something solid and breathe like a sniper, causing an adjustment in your application Steady Shot camera will help a lot. This configuration will use your phone's accelerometer to measure how much you shake the camera, and will not take the picture until his hand is stable for a certain time (usually about one or two seconds). Some applications can even show the sensitivity of Steady Shot, so your phone can not wait to go for the shot. <br /> <p><br /> <p>8. Check out White balance - Most camera phones are very good at detecting the white balance, but if you're in low light, they have difficulty. The first thing you can do is a second camera to adjust yourself if you just open the camera application and snap away, you can get an amazing orange sign. <br /> <p><br /> <p>9. Check out Exposure - Adjusting the exposure is greater let more light into the lens, which means kick it up a notch will probably have a bright, vivid photos. <br />

I Have a Samsung SCH-r610. I have only had it for a couple days and its a great phone other than this one problem. Every so often, the camera will choose not to work. I will turn the camera on but the...


I had the same problem. I discovered the answer. From my experiences, it seems to happen when I zoom in. Then it stops taking pictures (Capture button does not work) I sent my phone in to get fixed, and they said they replaced something, but i tried zoom again, it stopped working. So i was like wtf.
Anyways, how to solve this problem is to set your camera on the resolution / quality that DOES NOT allow zooming. After that has been completed, turn the phone off. Then back on and it will work.
