Software influence on camera quality

Recently, there was a discussion about cameras integrated into mobile phones. Also, many users are angry about the bad quali9ty of the Zire 72's images-they are huey and unsharp. Mistakingly, a comrade did not update his SX1's firmware to version 15 like I did a few days ago-a few boring minutes led to the following comparison photos-click for larger versions. The left image always is firmware version 12, the right one version 15!

Now, let these impressions sink in. As we see, a simple software update can enhance a camera significantly! A sub-average source of boring images(before) can indeed become a nice tool for making new photos for TamsPalm readers!
There are so many ways of aquiring higher quality(superresolution problem, brightness adjustment,..)-the companies only need to do it... . And somehow, Siemens is doing this well.
What do you think?

That test would be valid if and only if it were done with the very same device -yawn-.

Hi,
-yawn- back!
The other device also had a significantly improved camera quality after the firmware update.. .
I can understand your concern about the difference between the devices, but-trust me-there aren't than many device diferences with the SX1, and mine performed equally bad with firmware version 12.

Hi,
thank you Stoiniger for the interesting comment. However, the web page is in German. while I an understand it well-TamsPalm readers uncapable of reading german can contact me to have its contents translated!
Something else-constructive criticism is one thing, trolling is another! while the first will be appreciated, the latter will not be tolerated...
Best regards
