    Does anyone know why the glare from the light? I have never had this before. Maybe the protector? I cleaned the lens good before installing. I tried rotating the picture, but failed at that, the picture was right when I attached it.

    It happened after installing the camera protector? See if it shifted ?

    Camera protector sits tight and looks clean. Protector went on as soon as I got the phone. I may pull it off, and go naked on it

    I took the protector off, and the glares gone. I have never had a protector on the camera before. Since the screen protector came with one, thought I’d try it. Thanks

    Thanks! We've never used one before so hopefully these will be ok if it's a problem we will take ours off too. I hope it doesn't interfere with my case neither.

    Are you able to clean the inside part of the camera lens protector as well? (I'm not sure if that's adhesive or not.)

    Any time you put another layer of glass that light must travel through in front of a camera you risk reducing image quality and adding problems.

    I've seen cheap filters do similar on a DSLR. Assuming these protectors are nothing more than a screen protector I wouldn't use one personally. It runs the risk of color fringing, reduced contrast, reduced detail/sharpness, and introducing light flares like experienced in this threads photo.

    Oh really hmm maybe we should return them. They are the white stone ones. I'll tell my husband and see what he wants to do.

    Bingo. Dedicated camera lenses are specially designed and coated to reduce these issues. A simple, non-coated protector (even if it's glass) is going to cause a loss of image quality.

    I learned the hard way years ago putting cheap filters on my Nikon. Thought it was a great idea to put a cheap UV filter on to protect the lens, can produce some interesting results with lights/lasers at a music venue. Lol

    Having said that my new Armadillo Tek Vanguard case sports a 3/16" protective bumper around the lens so I'll have to try pretty hard to mess it up.

    Sometimes I get this too on my S10 - but only with glaring sunlight shots, or too-bright lighting conditions. It doesn't happen every time. Interesting how these things happen. I just shifted my camera's focus and cleaned the lens and it seemed to be better.

    Glad i read this thread. My screen protector came with a camera lens protector but i never put it on. not happy with the screen protector either because my fingerprints won't read even though i reprogrammed them in several times.

    seeing this photo i see you have fingerprints on the lens. that can cause haziness, glare, and streaks too.
