    I just got my new Lumia and put on an AT&T Gel Case in Pink while at the store. I later realized that the case was creating a "red" cast in my flash photos!

    Has anyone else had this issue?? I'm wondering how many people are having some camera interference from their cases and have not yet realized. If you have a blue gel case for example, an added blue cast wouldn't be as noticeable.

    Nothing yet. Although the corners on mine are getting dirty and I can't clean it. Cyan

    I may try to take some pics with and without the gel case to see if I notice the same. Maybe your gel case isn't cut correctly?

    I've heard about that happening on other phones with gel cases.

    Thank you so much for the responses everyone!! I was just so shocked by this, and I'm glad I finally decided to see if it really was the case.

    Mine looks like it's cut correctly. I'm not exactly sure how the red cast ends up in the photos, and I think I only noticed it in the photos that used a flash.

    I noticed some iPhone cases have the camera cut out inside edge lined in black. Maybe you could test this out with electrical tape or something else that's black.

    Example:

    I have a blue silicon case that I got of ebay. It causes a blue halo in my flash photos. Guess I will have to cut out larger or something.

    An exacto knife or razor would probably work for cutting a bigger hole.
