    Hello all, I just noticed something while testing out the camera at night: there are random white/blue pixels popping up in the photo (pay attention to the bottom 1/3 of the photo).

    Not sure if it's just my camera? Running iOS 10.0.1

    P.s. Taken in downtown Montréal.

    I do see some hot pixels. Take the iPhone to the Apple Store and show these photos and they will either replace the iPhone or the camera. You don't want to settle on seeing these hot pixels for the life of the phone. The sensor will probably get worse

    As I take a closer look, that white spot is a ghost image from the optics reflected from that bright light on the wall. You will see that in this phone. The optics of these cameras do not have advanced coatings on thumb to get rid of flair like that, so you will probably have to clone it out and software. But bright lights will calls ghosting like that so it will be normal if that's what it is. On the bright lights will cause some ghosting like that ..

    Ah that makes sense. I guess I'm just being paranoid.

    If you really want to test it out, set the phone at high ISO or shoot an image in near darkness at a wall or something (with no bright lights) and see if the pixels show up that way again. If they don't, then there's nothing wrong with your camera or the sensor. I've already seen phenomenon like that on my camera and it's because of the bright point source lights reflecting between the elements of the lenses

    What ToddH said. Saw similar effects on my previous smartphones

    Looks like lens flare. You could be the next J. J. Abrams.

    Ok it's confirmed. The camera is fine ; I was just paranoid. Thank you for your honest input!
