Ok....what's up with the camera on my 4s?
LOL I feel bad because I only come to you guys with problems, but I have another one
I have a white 4s, 64gb. When I take a picture using flash, the whole picture has a haze over it. Doesn't matter if I'm using HDR, standard, etc it just comes out with a haze over it. The camera lens in it is clean. My mom has a white 16gb 4s and hers come out the same way, I have another friend with a white 4s and it's the same thing. Is anyone else having this problem? Apple wanted to replace the phone (I had to take it home and back it up first) but I don't want them to replace it an have the same thing happen.

i was having the same problem then i noticed that u can't have the fingers any close to the camera while u are taking a picture... u will see the difference if u just hold the phone's corners to take a picture!!!! it worked for me... sometimes the cases make it worst tho...

Lighting - If there is no light the picture isn't going to come out amazing. Even if you have flash.
Case - Sometimes the case reflects off of the case pushing it back towards the camera or in the way of the camera
Plastic protection - same as camera, or it might slightly cover the camera if someone didn't put it on right.
If its not any of those things i would have a "genius" look at it or exchange it if possible.
Sorry-I dropped the ball on this one big time! Anyways, here's an example of a picture the phone takes, without a case or plastic over the lens. I know two other people whose white ones do the same thing, so I'm hesitant to have them replace it if the problem will be the same. Thoughts?

Gotcha I missed that part.
Dim lighting (darn near dark) with flash. I have others but they have friends faces in them and don't like to post without permission.
This picture still comes out better than the OP's.

I have the white 4s also....and my pics are just fine...with a case or not case, whether using HDR or no HDR option, you didn't happen to drop the phone or get the phone wet did you? If neither I would take the phone back, something's wrong with the camera itself!

Hurray thanks to all the forums my problem of terrible white haze pics solved after owning my phone for 5 months!!! I tried taking off protective clear cover that I bought ....this didn't help!! Then I noticed that clear film was STILL on back of phone .. Off that came, took a picture and great no white haze.... Took second picture and partial haze!!! Took another one making sure my fingers well away from lens/flash and perfect.... So the forums I read we're correct!! I was a doubting Thomas and now I am pleased as punch!! Thank you all so much ps. Even hubby said that there was no film on back... But there was
