Apple Acknowledges Major iPhone 5 Camera Flaw

Anonymous Coward writes | about 2 years ago

Iphone 1

An anonymous reader writes "Many iPhone 5 users are complaining that its camera is adding a purple flare to their photos. Speculation is that it's caused by the new sapphire lens cover that Apple touted as "thinner and more durable than standard glass with the ability to provide crystal clear images." Apple's response to those who've complained? "You're using it wrong.""

iPhone 5 much worse than previous iPhones (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 2 years ago | (#41533693)

The issue isn't so much that this camera exhibits chromatic aberration and lens flare. All do, to some extent, and especially those with small lenses like cell phone cameras.

The real issue is that it's so much worse in the iPhone 5 than even in previous iPhones. A lot of the test shots going around the web show very common lighting situations - a room with overhead lights just out of frame, for example. Yes, you can avoid taking direct pictures of the sun, but how do you avoid the room with overhead lights? Based on the fact that identical comparison shots taken with the iPhone 4S show little to no artifacts, this is a real flaw that needs to be addressed.
