    Default Note 2's Camera

    Has anyone noticed when taking a picture inside the pic turns out dark. I have the flash turned off because it seems to always make the pic turn a blueish tint. I recently switched from the iPhone 5 where all the pics turned out great indoors with or without flash. Just curious because I take a lot if pictures. Other than that u live this phone. Any suggestions on how to improve indoor pics? I have tried the low light settings but really didn't help much. Thanks.

    The iphones camera has better lowlight performance then the note 2 b/c the n2 has a max iso (or light exposure value) of 800 where as the iphone 5 has one of 3200. So the iphone takes better pics in lowlight and indoors but as for recommendations for better pics I say try getting or taking a pic in the most light you can.

    Thanks. For me taking pictures is something I do constantly. But even comparing in lighted areas it just seems like it has less resolution. It just seems like there is something missing.

    Should I keep the iso setting on 800 or auto?

    I suggest Auto, if you keep it at 800 you'll notice more "noise" in the camera.

    Question. Should I use the matrix metering or center waited. My s3 was set on center weighted. But my note 2 was on matrix.

    I am very interested in this as well. The flash is useless with people faces as it make them really blue. It works okay with just objects when you really don't know the colors. I am trying different settings and so far it seems "low light" gives the best result. I tried manually set it to ISO 800 and it didn't turn out too well. Not sure what else to try. If you find some settings that work well for low light indoor (like a restaurant) let me know too!
