    Hello everyone, I am new to the forum after lurking around for a while and I recently bought a iPhone 3G and noticed today that when in camera mode if I move a little it gives off a wavy effect. Is this normal? Because I hope its not. I never messed with the camera much until now and last night I did a firmware update so I am up to date. Does anyone else have this problem? Thanks :apple:

    It is normal. It is the software compensating for the image change, and maybe even related to lens used. Don't worry about it, it is not seen in the pictures taken, as they aren't moving.

    thanks for the reply, sounds good. I was kinda worried my phone was messed up or something.

    When taking a picture be sure to hold your iPhone still until after it does the shutter effect to make sure the picture comes out sharp

    The amount of ambient light also makes a difference on how soft the picture appears. There are some stunning pictures in the photo of the day thread and some were taken at night. You might want to take a glance and if you feel like yours cannot take good pics at all, go see the Geniuses/Genii.

    Good luck!
