This is an attempt at creating a personal blog, feeding the new blogging fad. It started tonight as a silly idea. No idea where it'll go. Nowhere, probably.

Firmware upgrade done. Same photo results.

Two days ago, firmware version 2.0633.65.01 became available for my U.S. product code and I jumped on the bandwagon and upgraded. I tested the camera once again in both photo sizes, both in low light conditions at night and during the day. The result is the same. So my conclusion here (other than the camera on the E61i is average at best compared with what's out there today, especially from Nokia) is that, unless I plan to print something I snap with my phone (which I don't think will ever be the case), I will be taking all of my photos in 640x480 format, which offers richer, smoother pictures at 1/5 of the file size of the 1600x1200 format.
