Default camera makes picture darker

Hi, I have read a couple of threads in HTC (Not sure if it would of applied for Samsung S2 hence the new thread).

When I go to take a picture, as I am within the viewer the lighting is great, once I take the picture it makes the picture alot darker and from what could of been a great picture it looks like an average rubbish picture, almost hard to believe it is a 8mp camera.

I followed the HTC which said get rid of the Automatic brightness adjuster on the screen, but that doesn't work, because that make the screen brighter.

Any help, suggestions or reccomendations on a decent software camera for the S2 on the android market you can reccomend over the original?

Thanks

I agree about the stock camera app being too dark, and with the flash.. it makes the picture look like it was taken in a dark room with a bright poorly exposed flash! I recommend Camera Zoom FX app.. They have tons of filters you can apply including one that helps brighten up your photo..

Unless you need to manipulate the images in phone, I would suggest doing it on a regular computer. download GIMP (GIMP - The GNU Image Manipulation Program) which is free. the small screen, varying angle and light you will get isn't really an optimal photo viewing/editing setup.
