    It looks like when it rains it pours for Apple.

    Not new, and I'd wager that it has to do with how people are holding the phone with their finger near the flash or a case partially blocking or reflecting the flash.

    Seriously, I'm stuck in a time machine.

    Oh well, since it's last week again, maybe I can buy some more fireworks.

    <sigh> :rolleyes:
    You didnt even read the article. It has to do with the "white balance." This a photography term. Cameras normally require balancing from a range/spectrum of blueish to yellowish. The iPhone camera is not properly calculating the white balance, hence the yellow or green tint to images. Prior iPhones (3G, 3GS) do not have this problem. It is new to the iPhone 4.0

    My fiance's first two phones had severe yellow tint issues: the first one was with w/ the front camera; the second had it with the back camera. Her most recent phone seems much better, or at least on par with mine (which is more on the blueish side).
