    I'm going to buy one from ebay, they're under like 30$, is it true that it will have some sort of problem with it?

    Make sure it's the updated version with the oval cutout on the back and not the keyhole looking cutout.

    what happens without the oval cutout, could you also provide two seperate pictures? That would be great

    These are pictures of the old case with the keyhole cutout. You want the one where the cutout is oval, not these. The oval cutout will prevent any kind of issues with the flash.

    Just ask seller before buying it. They should be able to tell you.

    Based on these forums, I contacted Speck via e-mail and got a cheery note from them advising there was a redesign of the cutout for the camera/flash from a 'keyhole' to a 'pill'. The original 'keyhole' caused a white-out when taking pictures.

    I send them a copy of receipt, which color I wanted and my address and they are supposed to send out in about two weeks.

    I like their customer service.
