    So, now i have a iphone 4s from my 4, i have a few cases and most of them fit just fine... but anytime i take a picture at night with the case on and the flash on the picture gets washed out. either its the whole picture or just a corner of it... is the flash like more powerful ? do i need a different case? i tried it with my otterbox and it was also washed out. anyone else have this problem?

    p.s when the case is off the picture is fine with the flash on at night.

    Take the plastic film off the back of the iPhone.

    Mine is doing the same. I used the same case with my iphone 4 and all was fine. Now I get a washed out picture with flash on the 4s.

    Anyone have a case that will work?

    Yes, first time lights up the scene for focus.

    If the case is a clear case try taking a black marker and going around the inside part of the flash cutout. I've heard this works.

    I have 4 of these and they work great for all our phones, my wife has the Otterbox with her 4 but doesn't really use her camera, I just do not like bulky cases.

    Same problem, slightly annoying but not a huge deal to me personally. I wonder if there is some type of matte coating or material we can play around it to diffuse the flash from reflecting.

    The Apple Bumper works great and has absolutely no chance of interfering with the flash :D
