done at the right angle, all cameras do... sorry bud


This afternoon I tried to replicate the purple haze for 20 mins and was unable to do so, so I'm skeptical.

any point and shoot can do this. I can dupe this on my Nikon 8100 and 8200 plus my original Droid. some lens have more flare up than others though. So while it can be in any phone it seems to be much worse in the Iphone 5 because of the type of lens they used.

so the old, "you're holding it wrong" excuse huh :/

Seems to me that that is literally the issue here. As soon as Apple is concerned though, all common sense goes out the window.

Yep, apparently people think you can just take photos of the sun almost directly and it won't affect the photo in the slightest, even though it will affect a camera sensor in a similar way to what it would an eye.

It's dark here now, but I`m gonna take a few photos with my phone tomorrow and purposely try to get a purple lens flare

Pretty sure I have taken photos directly at the sun to see how they turned out and not ended up with a purple anything on them, just dark with a bright spot where the sun is, but I`ll have a go tomorrow

The thing is on the iPhone 5 it happens on all light sources, and while you can get a flare on every camera, the iPhone 5 has a huge range of effect where's most others have much smaller ranges, and can perfectly fine take pictures with light sources and even the sun in angles the iPhone 5 can't without the purple haze.

Also it's not simply about a flare. It's a flare plus the purple haze, if it had been just a flare it wouldn't have been an issue

Most above average camera phones, iPhone included afaik uses glass not plastic lenses and covers.

I shot a video of my dog running around the other day, several time he was running towards the sun. While I did get a flare, never did I get the purple hazing, in or outside the flare.

You're right, there's a purple haze when I take a picture with my living room light just out of the frame, and that's not really that bright.

Can't think of a time I'd ever need to take such a photo though so I guess I'll live with it :p

Some people have speculated it's the Sapphire coating on the lens cover.

Exactly. We're talking about shots where they take the same picture on different phones - including the iPhone 4S - and it is only the iPhone 5 that is affected. I've never come across this on any phone I've owned yet users of the iPhone 5 started noticing the purple flare immediately, which is interesting after Apple touted how the camera was improved.

It's not about specifically taking those photos or videos, but rather lights occurring like that when you take pictures, which happens a lot more than you think.

I don't think it's really a reason to avoid the iPhone 5 for those in the eco system, but for those not, it would be a reason to avoid it, and for those who want a good camera, it's a good reason to chose another, but then the iphone 5 camera isn't that great to start with compared to other good camera phones, so it wouldn't be at the top on those lists anyway.

I had it do it to me on multiple occasions.. BUT.. The weirdest problem I have seen was it did it on a video I recorded while at the local JV football game Thursday night.

In the right hand bottom of the screen, about at the fence post you can see some weird fragment moving around.. It wasn't an any photo I took or other videos I have done. I assume it was because of the way the lights were angling off the camera
