    Hey guys,

    When I'm in a dark room, and I use the cameras flash, this happens.

    Its not normal, what should I do?

    Are you using a case? Any sort of film protection? Inspected the lens and flash for any debris?

    I have the same issue but I thought it was normal and because the flash was too strong in a darm room. I don't have any case or any shield covering the camera

    It should definitely not look like that..

    The camera should adapt it's settings automatically to get a correct exposure!

    EDIT: But if you got a case that disturbs the flash, then it can look like that too! Some rear protectors too, though i haven't noticed any problems with my rear protector and the flash being used in the dark.. But most cases does definitely make it a problem..

    I noticed this morning that I still had the protective pelicle that comes with the phone, I took it off and it's better, but still a little too much exposure.

    I was testing the camera with the app "Pro HDR" by the way.

    Good to hear!

    How about pictures of how it is now? :) Use it with the regular camera app and use HDR in that and without and post them up and we'll probably see if it is the way it should be! :)

    That looks just fine, i'm taking into account the distance and that you have a light behind the objects which isn't optimal in dark rooms, as the camera usually wants to see objects in front of a light as silhouettes :)
