comment Noisy images from Canon PowerShot SX150 IS
Glad you've solved the problem, 80 is a very high quality ISO. This could be a number of reasons depending on what your shooting and the type of camera phone. I would asume you using iphone 4 or samsung galaxy (early models)? The thing is, good quality imagery is not solely down to Mega Pixels generally speaking. It's down to light, aperture and iso settings in the strictest form. Camera phones tend to use automatic settings to find the best image. This doesn't give you a great amount of diversity and options but it does give you a good quality image.

comment Noisy images from Canon PowerShot SX150 IS
Yes that sounds like it. You're welcome. If you're using Automatic it would be best to shoot in a park on a sunny or bright day and then again perhaps inside a slightly darkened room. Then compare the two. The darkened room will have more noise. The sunny day pic should really have quite minimal noise if any at all.

comment Does having the AF points bunched up in the middle make a big difference?
I didn't say "only still life", I used it as an example for stationary objects/people. As I said before, it was a valid point. Many photographers choose the central point focus style and as long as they are aware of the slight focus issue it's purely up to them. If you want the absolute best focus you can get then that method is not ideal. Each to their own.

A fair argument but that would only be relevant on shooting still life, or simular, for example. There are many techniques to adopt for the right situation. The difference in focus would be slight, but certainly worth bearing this in mind when seeking absolute focus on your subject. Thanks for bringing the point in though.
