That's just weird. Pathetic, even.

Everyone knows that the pixels drain to the side when you do that. You end up having to shake the camera before you use it.

Personally, I put my lens on, and hold the whole thing pointing down for about 5 minutes before I shoot. That way, the pixels are closer to the front lens element.

I find that this not only increases the saturation of the image, because the pixels are closer to the light, but also the focal length of the shot. In fact, if you hold it pointing down for 30 minutes, you can shoot a telephoto with your wide-angle lens.
