    Have had my EVO for a month now and started taking photos with it and emailing them. Photo resolution (Camera/Settings/Resolution) is set set at 1280x768 and Quality (Camera/Settings/Quality) is set to High. All other camera settings are at default values.
    The photos I have taken in daylight without flash, when viewed on a couple of different PC laptops (one an HP, the other a Dell) show a marked pink tint in the photos, which is especially noticeable in skin tones. This occurs throughout the photo and not at the fringes. Similar photos taken concurrently by a companion on her iPhone3 show natural colors and skin tones when viewed on the same PC laptops.

    Anyone else notice the same? Is this a hardware/software/firmware defect specific to my unit, a general model-wide defect, or a function of camera settings?

    It's set to the default, which is "Automatic".

    I've solved my problem -- at least for now. I went through all the screens that adjust or change the display color settings on the laptop. I didn't change anything from the default settings, but I then rebooted the laptop and now the photos look just fine. Go figure. Both PCs are running Windows 7 Home Premium, so maybe that has something to do with the color settings' mysteriously having been changed under the covers by some application or by some bug in the operating system.

    Sounds weird. Normally I would just chalk it up to auto white balance not doing a great job.
