    Yeah I took some photos with it, and it was messing up the flash. Took the case off, pictures came off a lot better.

    I would send that the Griffin. They may give you your money back. That's a noticeable difference!

    I bought the White Griffin Reveal because it kinda looks like a bumper, but when I came home to my dad's bumper, the Apple Bumper >>>>>>>> Griffin Reveal.

    I can't wait to get the white bumper.

    + the griffin reveal is really flimsy and it feels worn and stretched already (I took it off, and I'm gonna return it in the morning)

    just my 2c

    Dammit! Mine has the same flash issue! I can, however, confirm that the Belkin Vue I also picked up to try does NOT have the flash issue. Guess that decides which one I'm taking back!

    I almost got this, but didn't because the plastic seemed cheap.

    Thank you, OP. Because of this thread, I ran my own tests, same result - BIG difference - the non case ones have richer colors w/flash and seem sharper.

    I had a hard time getting the case off because my Zagg backing wanted to stick to it... I think it was too hot to have both...

    I will be returning mine too. I asked today and you have 30 days at BB even with an open package.

    Wow. Nice find. I was wondering why the pics didn't look right. But I don't see my myself using flash that often so I don't see this being much of an issue for me.

    Yeah, going to return this today. That's a shame.

    Guess I'm shooting for a Bumper or a Candyshell.

    Thanks for the heads up on that one. I hadn't even used the flash until I seen this thread and although it fits nice and is an ok case, that's a deal breaker.

    +1 for this find. i was thinking this case was the best.. Think i'll leave buying a case for a week and see what comes out & the reviews.

    Updated the little review I wrote of this case to include example photos of the problem mentioned in this thread.

    Review here
