    I don't know if this was posted but, if it was sorry, anyways.
    I notice that the flash goes off way before the photo is taken, so do u think something is wrong with my iPhone or, it has to do with software ? Help

    Update: flash goes off before photo is taken, photo is dark.

    With mine on pressing the camera taking button my flashlight comes on and then as the camera takes the picture the flash goes off.

    Apple is aware of the issue. It is a software problem and will be fixed in the next update 6.0.1

    Holding down the Home button and Lock button for 10 secs fixed this issue for me

    Isn't this a feature on digital cameras called "slow-sync"? It fires the flash before taking the picture to help keep backgrounds bright.

    This is what I always thought. And my 4 also did it. Never had a problem the quality of the photos.

    OP, Try this...


    ...then, if that doesn't work, wait for this.

    That happens when the flash fires for a portion of the time when the shutter is open for a long exposure. That is not what is going on here.
    If the flash fires intentionally before the image is taken, the flash is coming on either to reduce red eye or to help the sensor see the whole picture in poor lighting so it can evaluate the scene correctly and lock focus etc. if the flash does not come on when the picture is taken and things are too dark then that is an issue though.

    this.
    there are a number of threads about the problem, both here and on apple support forums. fortunately apple listened and a fix is on its way!
