Another Droid X post

So far my Droid X has been absolutely incredible. I’m really fascinated with the retro camera app, and features like Swype are making it easier and easier to use. Not to mention fun little apps like google street view and sky map. So here is a handful of images that I took today between classes. Enjoy!

First experience with the Droid X

I got a Droid X this week. The thing is simply amazing. I’ve had a blackberry for the last two years, and the performance with it was sub optimal, in my opinion. I spent more time looking at the spinning hourglass on that blackberry than I did anything else. At any rate, the Droid X does. The camera is phenomenal – 8 megapixels – and the camcorder shoots in 720p! Ridiculous! Not to mention I can actually access web sites (such as this one) on it, no problem.

So I found an app called Retro Camera that simulates a handful of old cameras – namely a pinhole camera, Orange Box, Polaroid, and the Bärbl. It’s an awesome toy to play around with, so I walked around the downtown area today and took some shots with it. I even visited what’s left of the Newell-Davis warehouse, up north on the river by the Isabel Stellings Holmes bridge. That warehouse has a fair bit of history behind it, but it’s days are numbered.The only complaint I have with this app so far is that it adds a frame – I could do without that. I’d just like the effect without the frame. But it still does a great job.

Here is a gallery of the shots I took today. Enjoy!
