    Everyone who have problem with camera try to change phone language to English. Camera will probably work fine.
    I've had both my T899M's set to English USA since I got them. Camera issue exists. The driver isn't compatible with WP8.1, we'll have to wait for an update.

    This issue shows why we need the OEMs to cooperate on OS upgrades. Drivers will break and need updating. Quite unfortunate.

    I can confirm similar problems with the camera. A hard reset doesn't fix the problem, so it is definitely firmware related.
    Definitely firmware. Hard reset yesterday didn't fix. Hopefully neither Samsung nor the carriers will drag their heels in providing the firmware update. I am still enjoying the 8.1 update,though.

    hello there. no mather how i use flash (on off auto) , after i take a photo it flashes one more time. anyone tried?
    Same here on i8750. Soft reset and/or battery pull help only for a short time, video spoils it . Guess we'll have to wait for a better photo app from MS or better drivers from Samsung.
    Rest of 8.1 works great, especially since many apps are getting updated now. Still very happy with it

    Alas, for a developer's preview, I doubt they'll be in any hurry to release a patch since this is not a consumer release.

    im having the flash issue too. hoping itll be part of the next 8.1 update instead of a firmware update...since this issue has only started ever since 8.1 was updated!

    Still broke here, try messing with the resolution settings for a minute. If it passes that test then I guess it's fixed.

    Also received the extra settings update, but it's not in the app update list now, and on the store it's still a version of August 2013! And camera still broken. Taking pictures after changing resolution results in a crash and restart

    If you have camera issues, do a hard reset

    After 8.1 new update camera did still have the flash-after-photo problem, but today I have made about 40 photo's with the standard camera app without a problem! No flash-after-photo, no black screen. So I'll dispense from making video's for the time being . Hope it lasts until Samsung installs improved drivers.

    Edit: improved drivers in FW 2424.14.9.3, now camera is OK
