    Now i love my iphone 4 camera, its general preety good, especially in good lightning/day photos.

    Now i just came home from a walk i had with my gf, and i took some photos.

    I feel the lack of manual control of white balance is really hurting me here.

    The iphone is brand new, and the photos i have taken before turned out very good, just wondering if this is normal.

    I guess it turns out like this because of the warm street lights, still, its a shame i cant control the white balance.

    Pro Camera. It allows control over white balance as well as a ton of other nice features.

    I'm not positive it will completely resolve the issue, but it allows for you to choose the point of white balance. So it should help the yellowing to some extent, but with indoor lighting it seems to always be somewhat yellow.

    I jumped the gun and bought the app. I'm very impressed so far, bang for your buck. Thanks!

    So yellow'ish is normal and not an issue with my iPhone?

    thanks for recommending pro camera, ill check it out, hopefully the snow will look white from now on, and not yellowish like someone pissed all over it.

    thanks :)

    just bought it, going to test it tomorrow, saw it recently got a huge patch/update aswell so thats good

    just skimmed trough the support stuff, i guess AWB, means automatic white balance, while wb with a lock sign means you have locked white balance?

    I noticed the different shading of a pic. I also notice it happens if you move the camera..e.g. I took 2 pics holding still, relatively the same "color" or shading, I then move me camera up, down, left, then right, and the pic would either come out lighter or darker. I also noticed because the flash is to the right of the camera, or left depending on how youre holding it, you can tell that in the pictures. Like, one side of the pic is brighter. It's annoying. You're not suppose to see or guess where the camera's flash is placed. It should have been placed on the bottom..perhaps??
