    Droid 3 camera bluish pics-software or hardware?

    Hello. My wife and I are new to the world of Droid phones and love our Droid 3 phones except for the camera. Pics, especially with flash on, look blue and dark. It was a major disappointment. We are still in the 2-week grace period and need to know if this is a software issue with Android that will be fixed with an OTA update, or a hardware flaw that we'll have to live with.

    Other than the camera, the phone is great... but the camera might be a dealbreaker. Can anyone advise on this? Thanks so much!

    I don't take many pics, so I haven't noticed this. But I read somewhere its software. If you use another camera app off the market it clears it up. Don't remember which one it was though that worked well.

    end of line...

    CameraFX is the one IIRC.

    Thanks for the quick replies! I didn't see CameraFX in the market... is it FXCamera? I'm mostly glad that it's a software issue. You would think Motorola would have caught that in the development process

    Does Motorola/Google issue updates to fix problems like this? Not sure what to expect as this is my first smartphone.

    They could in an update. But there would have to be a good number of complaints to Moto to get it worked in.

    Also it seems to be dependant on the light source I looked a the few pics I've taken and no blue tint. I think its mainly in flourecent light.

    If it's just in dark and with flash. Its just probably cause of the led flash they throw off a cool light which is why it has a blue tint.

    I've found just the flash does it. Although different software can still certainly get rid of the blue tint. Or maybe some adjustments to the exposure options.

    1. Try Camera360, it free in the market.
    2. Every phone is a little different, I dont have much blue in my old Droid X but my friends Droid X is horrible!
    3. is usually the flash and florescent light that cause the "blue" effect.

    Again, try a free camera replacement program first, then if you are good with what the camera can do, you may want to purchase one of others.

    Just my.02 worth.

    Good luck with whatever you decide!

    It definitely should be fixable with a software update.

    I'm getting a D3 tomorrow. Here's to hoping the camera gets fixed and the boot loader getting unlocked!
