    it's been happening to me a bit recently, eventually the vertical stripes go away but for now they've been coming on. if i take a photo that looks like it has vertical stripes, it doesnt come out when the photograph is taken.

    Anybody else? is this just a flaw with 4.0, 4.0.1 or 4.0.2 or is something hardware related?

    Either way, using my phone unlocked in Austria so it will have to wait before I replace it if it's hardware. Just curious though, don't remember this happening before.

    it only really seems to happen in low light situations and has vertical striping before taking a picture. subtely shows up in low lighting photos too.

    Maybe if you would post sample pictures somebody knowledgeable could say something?

    maybe this is the green effect people are referring to. the vertical bands are more noticeable on a smaller screen or when the pic is resized to a smaller size.

    Doesn't seem to happen in normal lighting, only low light. and i dont remember it doing it before.

    Video of shooting it.

    either way, won't replace til i get back to the states if its hardware because im unlocked on 4.0.1 and on study abroad. but just curious :)

    maybe its just the flourescent lighting, i dunno.

    It's because of low light conditions. Move on.

    It doesn't happen in any of my low light photos. That's not something I've seen before.

    That is inherent to the way the iPhone captures an image. Inherent to any camera phone actually.
