My wife, brother, his son and I all bought the storm, And the camera Sucks on all of them.
I hope an update will fix this, before my 30 day trial.
Or else this family of fools are taking all the phones back.
I was with another carrier before and there cheapest phone took better pictures.

I haven't had any issues with the video other then it is grainy. I have recorded a 30 minute meeting with no problem and played it back.
I kinda thought that it was more blotchy...been a photographer for 39 years. The Touch Pro, on a lower setting, took a better shot than the Storm at a higher setting.
HTC Touch Pro at Fine, not Superfine
Storm at Top settings:

If you're returning this phone because the camera doesn't work like you want it, then go back to the pathetic uncool Windows Mobile phone. The camera feature in phones aren't meant to be primary functions. They're just FEATURES. Go back to your Windows Mobile Phone where the camera is the primary function and the phone and messaging are just add-ins.
This is Blackberry's first attempt at touch screen phones and it is truly the best alternative to the iPhone so far. RIM has a much better and quicker record than Apple in fixing things. Seriously, how many versions and years of Windows Mobile has their been? Yet they still can't get the phone and messaging working like Blackberry. If you want multimedia and a pretty camera but don't care about phone and messaging component, then stick to your Windows Mobile. Also, if you like to reboot the your device every 3 hours, then definitely return that Blackberry Storm right away! Unlike Microsoft, RIM WILL get their products fixed.

LOL wut? They are features that should work correctly and not crash your phone. I have no other problems with the phone and love it but when one of the core features doesn't work it can be pretty frustrating.
This same issue has followed me around through both firmwares. It has nothing to do with recording to sd card either. Really wish I could figure this one out.
