Camera issues

Hi everyone,

now I found some issues with the camera app. I'm using MCR 1.1 on the pulse.

The camera app produces horizontal lines in the taken picture. I used several camera apps and they all got these lines. Mostly there are about 1 to 2 lines from the left edge to the middle of picture. I uploaded a picture to demonstrate what I mean.

Next thing is geotagging. The G1 had geotagging since early 2009. There seems to be settings in the menu of the camera app of the G1 to activate geotagging. These settings are gone on the pulse. I downloaded SnapPhoto from the market. That app has got the possibility to activate "store location in pictures". I acitvated it but it did not work. Picasa tells me that there are no geotaginformations in the exif-data.

Does anyone has more informations or can help to get rid of these problems.

I don't get any lines on mine.

If you get them on all your pics, I'd just take it back to store, I've not seem any other reports of it on here, so it's probably a hardware glitch or something :)

I've not tried geotagging, but have DLed SnapPhoto so I'll give it a go on the way to work this morning.

the free snap photo application has the option to geotag your photos.

When I first looked at your post/photo, I thought you were referring to the noise from the photo subject, but as I looked closer, I saw those horizontal lines.

That isn't normal, the photo quality is to a par with the iPhone 2G (basically Poor!) but I haven't had pixels mess up like this. I'd say that it's a problem with the camera sensor. Have you tried taking a photo with the secondary camera?

I'll try out geotagging now...

I brought my phone to t-mobile and am waiting for a replacement right now. The demonstration device in the t-mobile-shop has got the same problem. Let's see if the replacement phone has got the same bug.

Got my replacement pulse today. Up till now the camera seems fine. No more lines in taken pictures. The orientation is still wrong and geotagging still is not part of the settings. And the Barcodescanner and Shop Savvy from the market work too.

I spoke with an employee at t-mobile germany. He said, that his G1 has the correct orientation on pictures no matter if taken horizontally or vertically. And geotagging works on the G1 too. That's so nice! It works on older phones but not on a new one. Ridiculous...

I already tried orientation and positioning with SnapPhoto on the old pulse and it did not work. It just ignores it. If you know any other app that works, let me know.

I took several photos at the weekend, and although half were blurry some of them have lines in it just like yours!!!!

It's really annoying.... Has anyone else besides us 2 had this problem? Want to know if it is a common issue or not.... I have my phone unlocked already which is even more annoying.....

I haven't seen any lines, but I haven't taken many photo's due to the poor quality.

However, I have seen the lines in some review samples...

also in these examples:

I had the lines too, I took my pulse back to the store and they swapped it.

Does your replacement one have the same problem? Have you taken several photos in a row? As when the above was posted I took the odd photo and it did not show up, only after using the camera several times in a row have I gotten the lines to come through....

Thanks

Not sure on the u8230, my pulse is going back yet again, it appears that the lines are back.

14 Pictures in a row and on the 14th I get lines again and again 7 later.

Not happy.

I wonder what t-mobile will be prepared to swap the pulse out for?

Still even with these lines the phone as a whole is better than my iPhone 3G was.

Hadn't really noticed these before as I dont use the camera but I gave it a go. I've got the u8230 rom installed and getting the lines. Just taken 18 pictures and 9 have lines.

Damn, thats not good.... I guess this is a more common issue then..... Maybe more people need to check this issue out with their phone and then I guess make a complaint to T-Mobile to get it fixed?

i have the u8230 MCR on my phone. i had the same issue with the stock rom as well.

I starting to think this is a driver problem, if it was hardware then it would appear on every image taken.

Maybe the upcoming fix for the camera will fix this too.
