    I'm trying to do a little product photography on my note 2 using a photographic light box, and I'm getting faint lines across my photo's. The kind off a greenish tint.
    It's as if, the note 2 can't cope with the bright light in the box.
    Does anyone have any idea of what settings I should have the camera at, to avoid this problem. Sorry, I'm not a photographer at all, so don't understand anything about it.
    When trying to take the photo, the display screen is flickering as well.

    There should be some 'White Balance' settings somewhere in there... That might help.

    Also I've read the ISO should be set at 100. Don't really know why but the photo blogs say that's what it needs to be set on.

    Thanks for the input guy's. I've tried ISO 100 and all the different settings on white balance.
    It does make a difference, although still getting the lines across the pictures.
    I'm thinking I'm probably at the limit of what the camera lens can do. As even before I click the shutter button I can the screen is flickering and struggling to cope with the light.
    Thanks anyway though, I appreciate your replies.

    What type of lamps are you using in the lightbox? I like the GE Reveal incandescent floods myself (as a cheap solution).

    Do all pictures in other situations have the same artifacts? Until I know more, I'd wager it's the lamps you are using.

    Oh that's a thought.
    It's a light box with built in lighting that I'm using, It has two bulbs within it. So you plug the box in, and just turn it on. I'll attach a picture so you know what I mean.
    The lighting is from 2 bulbs that are Lloytron Energy Savery 630 Lumens and there are two of them in the box, sitting at the front top (left and right side)
    Maybe I could try some different bulbs.
    It's only for selling on ebay, so I'm not after a completely professional picture, just something clear and without the lines I'm getting.

    Try incandescent or LED bulbs. Fluorescent bulbs flicker at a rate the eye cannot see. But lenses can and do pick them up.
