    I have noticed an issue with the front and rear camera on my iPad 2, when the camera's deal with White white light flooding from a window or bright objects the camera will glitch in the White areas into a rainbow effect!

    Mainly happens if the areas of the image are overblown with White instead of compensating the image will have random rainbows in colours in White areas.

    Is this a software or hardware bug?

    Can you post a photo? If I point mine at bright white light it does all sorts of hideous things.

    I posted a thread about this with screenshots...didn't get any replies.

    See my thread here:


    Is this what you were talking about? Restarting the iPad fixed the issue, and haven't seen it happen again since.
