    Default S4 Front Facing Camera problem

    Every time I try to use the front facing camera with a filter or different frame it becomes really really dark. Is that normal or is there something wrong with it?

    Well, i think the problem is with the light if you are sure that there is enough exposure to light then i think that there is some problem with the camera !!! Would advise you better if you uploaded some screen shots of it "If that's possible for you!! "

    I think the first issue is, the front facing camera on the S4 is only 2 MP, no flash, no auto focus. Where as the primary camera is 13 MP, 4128 x 3096 pixels, autofocus, LED flash.
    So unless you are in PERFECT lighting, and even if you have good lighting, you are usually going to get a way lower quality, grainy, darker image.

    So to answer your question, no there is nothing wrong, it's a crappy camera Do what you have to to take your selfies on the primary

    I have the same problem and it is not because there is no flash on the front facing camera. When i am selecting the filter I'd like to use, there is a preview of what it would look like on the main screen (which would have perfect lighting). However, once I go to select the filter, the main screen would turn VERY dark and my face would no longer be visible. Just an outline of it. This is surely a glitch and not a problem due to improper lighting of the room. Anyone else have this problem??

    I am having the same issue. I try turning on every light in my room and it still would be dark. I thought it was something wrong with my phone.

    Are you using 3rd party software when applying filters and such?

    So the picture is fine, until the filter is applied then...
    Sounds like an software issue, not a camera issue.
