Printed 5 photos from my #HTCOne One as 8 X 12's and I am blown away by the quality. The guy at the lab had a hard time believing that they came from my smart phone. Going bigger next round!
3 plus ones

- I'll shoot a photo tomorrow and share with the thread here so you guys can see examples.May 21, 2013
- Hey Chris! Thanks for the note. So in the coin shot and the peacock feather shot I definitely adjusted the manual settings to accomplish the shots I was looking for. The candid shot of my kids were pretty straight forward except for the fact that I always set my ISO to 100 whenever I am shooting outside. Even when I am shooting with my DSLR cameras I try and shoot at the lowest ISO possible for the best clarity and least noise possible. Another in-camera step I always take is making sure that I am focusing on a neutral tone in the photo to balance my exposures in highlights and shadows. If I am taking a picture of someone wearing sunglasses with a bright sky background and I tap on the black in their sunglasses to focus, then the camera MIGHT meter the black of the glasses and think the picture is dark --> resulting in a longer shutter speed then is actually needed to properly expose the image --> resulting in an overexposed image.
That might not help your situation at all, but one thing that comes to mind. If its an update issue or a technical flaw... then I personally would holler at AT&T or even HTC directly. I know different carriers get updates at different times. I have two HTC Ones now and have not had any issues with either so far. Also, if you wanted to share some of the images and the meta data, I would love to take a look and see what's going on!May 22, 2013
- Hey Heather! That is awesome to hear! It pretty sweet to know that you can get quality prints if all you have on you is your phone!May 22, 2013

Unlike when I shoot outside at ISO 100, I am shooting Auto ISO indoors or using the Night capture mode. You may have already tried those but just an idea! BTW my T-Mobile HTC One is running 1.27.531.7 and my unlocked HTC One is running 1.29.401.12Hey Huber! The phone is a beast I totally agree. When you are snapping your pics indoors, what ISO are you shooting at? HTC's idea behind the Ultrapixel (basically the brand name for their larger then normal megapixel) is better low-light shooting. Here is an example I posted on Instagram of the difference between low light shooting with my last 3 HTC phones -->May 22, 2013
- Eric Krebs, hey, I read your previous comments on how to mess with the settings, to set the ISO 100 and I did that, the the pictures turned out to look way better. I had all the settings on auto since I don't know much about photography. Lol Anyways thanks for response, I learned something new, to mess with the settings.May 22, 2013
- , good call out on where the meter is grabbing a light sample. I'll think of that going forward.
As promised here's a public album I setup with four sample shots. Obvioulsy being the rookie and leaving things in auto, none of the shots are acceptable. Whereas the single macro I took looks fantastic.
I'll try to shoot a few more and add to this album at the ISO 100 to see if it makes any difference.
Thoughts from the group?May 22, 2013
