    Hi guys,
    I just got my iPhone back plate replaced at the Apple Store today and then tonight I tried taking a photo in the dark and I think something has been affected in my camera. When I took photos in the pitch dark prior to this, everything was fine.

    I have attached a sample photo.

    I've made an appointment for tomorrow. Luckily the Apple Store is near by, it's just frustrating the 'broke' something that wasn't broken.

    Yeah, that was my first thought, but I have triple checked and there is no plastic.

    if you're referring to the green blob, it's a known issue on most everyone's camera. caused by lighting situations

    Hey you can't prove Apple did any wrong doing. You could of broke that when you left the Apple store, this may not be covered under your warranty.

    No just referring to the photo in general, looks like it's washed out, can't see anything, just strange! I used it the night before and it was flawless. I got the back replaced due to a cosmetic issue (have another thread about that).

    As I said, everything was working fine. I left the Apple Store with my iPhone in the box as I was using my bb. I just synced and then I like testing the camera in the darkness due to being amazed at the flash and then to my surprise I got this. I honestly haven't done anything to the phone.

    Ok, if that's normal why does my sample photo look so much different than his? Do I not have the "known issue" or something? And if I don't have it, why shouldn't the OP go and get another iPhone that doesn't have it? Clearly they exist.

    I'd sure go back to the store if I went from having my camera to having his camera.

    Looks like the new rear cover is missing the flash diffuser. Pretty simple and quite obvious from your picture.

    The diffuser does what it says and diffuses the light from the flash away from the actual lense of the camera to avoid the pale, washed out look.
    If you take a picture of something using the flash under normal lighting, do you get the same effect? Usually it would just be over exposed but it will probably look really washed out.
