    Hi there,

    I have an iphone 4s and was looking forward to using the improved camera.

    I tried to take some pictures but couldnt help notcing distinct banding on normal pictures and on zooming.

    I thought this may be becuase of the iphone screen but noticed it was the same when uploaded to a PC.

    Anyone else have this kind of quality or can tell me if this is normal.

    The pictures taken are with the camera at full zoom but the lines are still very apparent but finer on a "unzoomed" images.

    ANd no these pictures were not taken of my TV or monitor but rather my coke can infront of me and my mug!

    Dunno, I'm definitely not seeing that on my 4S pics (even zoomed in). Maybe it has something to do with the refresh frequency of the light source(s) there interacting with the scanning frequency of the iPhone photosensor? Try taking an outdoor pic with no artificial light sources and see what happens.

    Yeah, that does not look normal. I have seen nothing even approaching anything like that with my 4S, even in very low light. It doesn't look like light cycle banding either. I'm a photographer, and I've definitely encountered that before. This looks like something wrong with the sensor.

    Thank you so much JMan.

    I will contact O2 with an email and hopefully they can resolve it.

    Cheers again

    I heard Apple was trying to get Billy Dee Williams for the commercials.

    I haven't used the zoom on mine yet, but regular photos are very crisp and clear; nothing like you're seeing. I hope they can find out what's wrong with yours and get it fixed, because what you're seeing is definitely not right.

    What lighting conditions are you shooting in? Do you see this in sunlight?

    HI takeshi these images are shot in the evening in my living room they appear with and without flash. I think Jman is right the image sensor must be knackered. None of these shots were shot in low light .

    Just my luck really now i need to contact O2 to resolve for me :(

    Cheers guys


    Sorry with the iphone 45 typo .. :)

    By most standards, a living room at evening time would be considered a low light environment.

    Also, come on, it's a digital zoom.

    (That said, still seems funky. I'd get it looked at.)

    I would not bother talking to O2 as all hardware issues are handled by the Apple stores.

    Make a Genius bar appointment and I am pretty sure that they will just swap the phone for a new one.
