    Anyone noticed some yellowish or blue tints to their pictures?

    At work today I needed proof of some documentation, so I took a picture of it ( white paper, in a fluorescent lite room ), and there is a blue hue right in the middle of the image. Wondering if it was just my phone, or just poor lighting, I went to 2 co-workers that also have the iPhone 4 and they all noticed the same thing.

    In low lighting, I've noticed that skin tones get yellowed to almost looking jaundiced.

    Anyone else see this? Hopefully it's something that can be addressed with a software update.

    This pic was taken with the object on a piece of bright white paper in a room with fluorescent lighting. Does this resemble what you're talking about?

    That's exactly what I'm seeing, glad I'm not the only one. Whew. I don't remember seeing this on my 3GS and it's already been sent off to the buyer so I can't test it.

    Hopefully this is (another) bug that can be squashed with a software update.

    The yellowing phenomena experienced under low lighting is noticeable on all simple cameras as they are balanced for daylight. Low or artificial light has a high proportion of yellow/orange. The effect is particularly noticeable in tungsten lighting. The use of flash often helps.

    My indoor low light pics are very yellow: much more so than my 3GS.

    Same issue here but we have florescent lights throughout the home. In brighter light, iphone 4 takes great pictures. A white balance adjustment setting would help. Maybe in future releases.

    Even if you take pictures with a DSLR you will get a hue under flourescent and tungsten lighting that's why you have to change your white balance accordingly. So it's not a defect, you just don't have a setting to change white balance. So hopefully Apple will put a setting or drop down list with the most common lighting options, or other apps will come out to adress the issue.

    I understand how white balance works, but I don't recall having this issue with my 3GS, I took many images of documents for record keeping in my office, and it hasn't changed in 10 yrs except some of the stuff on the desk and my computer and monitors. That's why I brought it up.
