    Ever since the 2.0 update (on 1st gen phone), I have been having an issue with the camera where I take a picture, and it seems to artifact. It doesn't happen ever picture, just randomly. Here is an example:

    Has anyone experienced this, and if so do you know a fix, or did you take it back to apple? Thanks.

    UPDATE: Just saw this post on TUAW - http://www.tuaw.com/2008/09/02/flickr-find-iphone-cubism/
    And someone created a group on Flickr

    I've had it happen. Bug in the 2.0.x software. No point in taking it back to Apple.

    That's happens to my phone too but mine is not 3g. It has the 2.0.2 software installed. I was beginning to think maybe my iphone was messed up.

    I've had it happen once or twice. I think the first time was with the original software.

    You're not nutty ;)

    Yep, it's happened a few times here. Personally, I think the splinched pics look niftier than if they were normal :p

    Plus, it's kind of like a home made puzzle game, so you can put the pic back to how it should look...if you're having a slow day you could do that I suppose. :)

    Whew! I've tried looking everywhere for any info on this issue and found nothing. But it looks like this is a common problem and hopefully apple has a fix for it in the works.

    I had it happen last night for the first time. The screen became a split screen and when I took a picture like that, the picture turned out normal.
