    Hi Everyone,

    I own Lumia 720 and I love it.
    I love the camera and I take many picture with it.

    But recently I notice there's vignetting on the camera.
    For who doesn't know about vignetting, vignetting is a dark/shadow spot at the corner at the camera. For more info check wikipedia
    vignetting.jpgth2ojdkd1d.jpgwp_20131203_09_16_02_pro.jpg

    I don't know what is it cause but I think that's because low 720 f/1.9 aperture. I read many article talking about low aperture will cause vignetting.

    I just want to know if there is any solution about this?
    I just found about fix it using photoshop software, do crop, etc.
    Is there any way to fix it by hardware(fix the lens) using any software or something?
    Anyone had some problem with this?

    I doubt the warranty will cover this.

    I know that is just a little now and hard to see it but I notice it become bigger and bigger. More I take picture, more bigger the vignetting and it annoys me.
    I just want to prevent it before it getting worse.

    Thank you.

    Hi, I have a Lumia 720 too, and it's a shame to hear that you have such a problem because the camera on the 720 is so great. I don't have this problem on my 720, so I don't know exactly what is causing this problem, but I suspect it's a hardware issue, and that the phone casing (that holds the camera lens and hole) is loose. This makes it further from the camera sensor and hence blocking the edges of the shot. To check if this is really the problem, press the back of the phone in and take a photo and see if the vignette is reduced. Also you can try switching to 16:9/4:3 capture mode and see if the vignettes are the same on both aspect ratios or slightly different. In any case, this is definitely a defect and should be covered under warranty. Good luck!

    yeah I think it's hardware problem
    I already switch to 16:9/4:3 and the problem still there

    but I just notice the vignetting problem come up since I installed Amber update
    before Amber no vignetting
    so it maybe fix after the next update

    if it won't get fix after next update, I will bring it to NCC
    thanks again for help :)
