Rather inspired by this clip

I'm starting a monthly(if you'd like it) contest! I figure everyone has a low end camera around, especially since we've all got mobile phones. Give it your best, send me the pic by the 14th of June and I'll set up a voting thread afterwards. The winner gets to bask in eternal glory!*

*This offer is subject to availability.
my cellphone has a 21 megapixel camera though... :p
My son has that exact same watch and the picture quality is hilariously terrible....

yeah, most current phones are capable of stunningly good photos under the right circumstances... i'm not sure those should really qualify for this :dunno:
Yeah there should be a mplimit of 5 or something
Yeah, 5 sounds about right. And if you don't have one that low, there's always the front facing camera!
Now where did I put my keyring camera?...

Edit: Watched that video now, he gets some good results. At 100% they actually look pretty good, much better than any 640x480 webcam would've done 10 years ago.

Did you get any submissions? I found my "808" keychain camera and tried to take a few shots, but was horrible beyond any reason. And framing is nearly impossible thanks to rather high focal length. So I gave up. Every other camera in my posession is too good :D
