    Hi all,

    To those who are having the issue of photographs becoming yellow when taken under fluorescent or CFL lights... quick question for you:

    When you look at the screen BEFORE taking the photo, is the preview yellow? Or is the preview's white balance fine, but the photo ends up yellow?

    On my iPhone 4, the preview itself is yellow, and the photo ends up matching that yellowness. Conversely, if I use the front facing camera... the preview is nice and white, and so is the photo.

    I'm just trying to ascertain whether the yellowness is happening for most people after you take the photo, or even before the photo is taken?

    Yea, I can see both the yellow tint and the green dot issues in the live view before even taking the picture. At least you know what it's going to look like!

    On a related note, anyone tested this with 4.1 yet? :eek:
