    okay so my camera is REALLLY pissing me off, out of no where. when it focuses on something that is White or Bright, the screen fills with horizontal gradiant noise, completely covering the screen so i can't even see what is on it. if i take a picture it is in the picture too!!!!!!!!! i will post examples soon to follow...

    i did a test in my kitchen where white tile meets brown hardwood, and when i tap the hardwood, the photo is fine, but when the tile is focused, its crap...

    okay here are some photos:

    Focused white or just crappy grains!:

    now this photo is HORRIBLE you can't even tell what it is, there are supposed to be cabinets where the white is, and it's certainly not purple

    There was a post like this a few weeks ago with similar pics. I remember that user exchanged the phone after being told by Sprint techs it was a faulty camera. Can't find the thread now though...

    Try and change your white balance settings. I suspect that your camera is probably set to auto.

    Curiosity, does a video of the same produce the same?

    Yes, if it's a bad camera sensor, it should show the same in video mode as camera mode.

    Uggghh man, I swear the camera sucks on this phone. Well I wouldn't say sucks, but it just seems like everything on this phone was half assed and rushed out, even tho they've had the phone for a couple years before we even knew about it.

    You need to look at some of the threads here and on other Evo forums. The camera takes fantastic pics!

    In the case above, I bet the problem is that his white balance is set to auto and the camera is having a hard time trying to adjust with all the different shadings. It's a problem that happens a lot on a lot of point and shoots and is a common reason why blue skies look washed out.
