When I have my camera on the front-facing option the picture is smaller but when I turn it around it fills the whole screen. It didn't used to do this and I can't find out how to fix it in the settings. This is what it looks like.
Will apps such as Skype be able to utilize the functions of the cameras for video calling? I am getting the iPhone 4 and my dad and uncle have Skype and we video chat all the time. So will apps like this be able to use the cameras in development? Discuss.
Think it will work with normal phone calls? Or do you think it will only be used with specific apps?Would be cool to call a friend that also has an iphone and select a button for speaker phone/camera and start video conferencing.
The new Facetime looks cool, the only problem is you can only do it with another ip4 owner (and over wifi, at that). What are the chances that Apple will allow a Skype app that will utilize the FF camera? Even if it's only over wifi, it would make the FF camera much more useful.
I recently recieved a second hand Iphone 4. I was testing the Camera, the rear one worked perfectly fine, however when i pressed the switch button the front facing camera shutter freezed and started flickering. In order to get it back to the rear camera I have to reset my settings.why the front facing camera is doing this and how i can fix it.
I know this may be speculation but this may be the deal breaker for me to get the next phone. I have a child off to college pretty soon who uses skype video regularly with her friends and I will assume with me also. I have actually gotten the skype video to work on my little Nokia N79 fairly well and would like my next phone to also have this capability so I can talk with her when she's away but I am not near my computer.
I just purchased the htc one today, and have loved it so far. Until I sensed it was time for a selfie, and then frustration set in. The first picture I took with the front camera I noticed my head had grown about 3 times its normal size. Like all good selfie takers, I naturally raise my phone to take the picture, but the distortion does not happen when taking a picture straight on. It distorts at the bottom, and top of the picture, and also gets very dark in the same places and unnaturally light in the middle of the frame. The picture quality is also very grainy and slightly blurry.
I believe this may be an issue on all devices. It seems like the issue is prominent when taking close up photos. The issue affects the top ~15% of the screen and the bottom ~15%. The only purpose of having a front facing camera is for the ease of selfie shots.
Just got the phone and I noticed that the front facing camera seems very choppy when moving the phone. Is this common? I knew going into it that the cameras weren't great, but just want to see if maybe there is something wrong.
Decided to take some selfies to test the front-facing camera and noticed it stretches the edges of the photos.
I was so convinced on buying this phone I forgot to even test it out in-stores to check if the front-facing camera was still an issue like it was on the M7. I also bought it from an online Australian store, but imported, so I can't be bothered returning it. It seems like the S5 and a few other models have this issue?
I have already tried changing the settings by going to crop and then changing it from wide to standard. Standard works to reduce the distortion A BIT, and square is better but still distorted.
These photos are just shocking. I will post them anyway for the sake of science and hilarity. Even the more centered photo stretches my forehead. As if it's not big enough!!
After updating my device to a new software, the front facing camera doesn't work anymore. I just see a black screen and it doesn't take any pictures. I tried resetting the phone, did factory reset and everything, nothing solves the problem. I'm desperate to get this sorted.
The problem is that the camera function of my device seems to be damaged. My front facing camera very rarely works, the quality of my rear camera has considerably decreased and it seems that the focusing function is also broken.When I presented my problem to sony they told me to reboot the device with the latest software. This temporarily fixed the problem however the cameras were very laggy and still terrible quality! After a week the problem has got worse once again and now neither my front or rear facing camera work.
When i turn on my camera facing outwards it is just black and any pictures i take are black. When i invert it the camera works and pictures work. i tried rebooting and updating software and turning my phone off and nothing works.
I just received my z5c and I am currently testing the front camera. I noticed that from time to time the pictures taken with this camera have strange patterns on it. Below you can see the same picture, one with the issue and one without:
The front facing camera produces a purple line through the top middle of my display and when I snap a photo it remains. Is this hardware? I tested it with the google camera app as well. This is a Samsung Galaxy S6
I do tons of hangouts with my family and I noticed that I cant select the front camera anymore, just the rear or no camera. Today I looked into it a little further and now I dont have the front camera option within the camera application. It was there like 2 or 3 days ago. I am on 4.4.2 for about a week now so I am not 100% sure it was that broke the front camera.
So I have my galaxy s5 for about a year now. So just today I noticed that when I switch to my front facing camera a faint green line shows up across the top of the screen. My rear facing is fine and my screen it self is fine. Why this is happening. It's even on snapchat and my stock camera app.
