    is my camera cover missing?

    Advertisement



    I was just looking at my new curve 8310 and the camera seems to be missing a cover? When you compare it to my old pearl which has a cover just under the sponge tape but the curve doesn't! The cover on the pearl is about a 1\4 inch while the one on the curve is only 1\8 inch.

    Am I going mad? Or am I right

    Re: is my camera cover missing?

    So when does a blackberry come with a camera cover?

    Are we talking about the battery cover?

    I'm confused about this question.

    I am talking about the small clear plastic cover over the lens of the camera. It seems the design has changed. If you compare it to a pearl, both with battery covers off you will see the diferance.

    I don't see a cover on mine either, I can't recall if my pearl had one or not.

    Pearl has one, 83xx does not.

    Re: is my camera cover missing?

    On my camera equipped BB's which I've had for a long time, I periodically remove the battery cover, then put a few strips of masking tape (pressed down very lightly) around the lens, cover the battery area with a micro fiber cloth and use a can of compressed air to blow the dust off the lens. This is the same thing I do with my pro cameras and it works perfectly.

    i usually just used a cotton swap on my old phone, but it feels like the design of the curve isnt that great for preventing dust/dirt on the back side period.

    Small piece of scotch tape on the foam tape will fix you up.
    Just be careful to get it nice and flat when you place it on there.

    Re: is my camera cover missing?

    Overall I think it's just a poor design to have such a large uncovered opening (I know it's necessary) on the battery door, then to have the lens so easily exposed with the door off. Surely they could have spent a bit more time designing it correctly

    Yes, the camera hole gets dirty very easily. I usually use one of those pressurized air duster thingys and just spray it with that occassionally.

    WORD. The flash and the camera are poorly designed for protection of dirt. Kinda frustrating. They arent hard to clean but a $500 phone should have a better design to protect a part as important/fragile as a camera.
