I am having the same problems with poor quality and inconsistent flash. I have several friends having the same problems, as well as a few others. Doesn't seem like Apple is about the polish anymore, just about the dates and revenue.

I have the iphone 4s and I am also having the same exact problem. The "flash" picture quality is awful. Blurry and foggy is the best way to describe images taken in dark places with the flash. I hope Apple will be addressing this probem soon!

I also have had some issues with the camera flash after the ios 7 update. I have had some increased success of the flash and pic quality by closing all the running apps, plugging my iPhone in and doing a hard restart (holding menu and power buttons down simultaneously for about 10 seconds, until the screen blacks out). Now I cannot say it is perfect yet, since I have only tried about 25 pics before posting this, but so far it has worked 100% of the time after following this procedure. I love the new IOS 7 update, so I really hope it is something simple like this for everyone. I hope this helps someone else out like it did me, because I have found so much help on the Apple community, I really would like to help contribute to the tips, versus always taking tips ; )
Thank you to everyone that helps in building this, I really do appreciate the helpful hints.

Keda Wood Dyes,
I am a new iPod Touch 5 user still in the learning phase on many of the features it has to offer. But I did notice that, since I upgraded to iOS7, I have had issues with the camera feature. Went to a family function last night and the camera took terrible pictures because it only flashed on occasion even though I had it set to ON. I tried AUTO thinking that would work, but no luck. So today, I proceeded to Google this issue. When I read your post, I figured I may as well give your suggestions a try: closed the running programs, did a hard re-set. I set the flash to ON. Then I took some shots in a dark room as well as aiming it right at a window and it flashed every time. I never would have known to do these things on my own so I am glad that I stumbled upon your post in my search for a solution. A bit too late for last night's event but for the next one, I will be ready to collect some good photos. Thank you for helping. I hope this works for others the way it did for me.

I am having the same problem... Even when I use the volume buttons to take a photo the flash does not work at all and when I use the screen button it works
When it feels like it and I am also getting 7 out of 10 photos look very grainy and poor in quality....
I have the iPhone 5 with iOS 7.0.2....
Where ever I go I always have my phone with me because I am a big fan of taking photos and since
this upgrade I have been really disappointed with the problems this upgrade has caused me and I am losing my faith and happiness with Apple products..is there anyway to revert back to at least the iOS 6 setting for the camera or at least a download to repair this terrible and much of a headache problem???!!!!

I have the same issue with Camera flash not working. I have tried everything everyone had suggested here and yet nothing helps. APPLE please come up with another upgrade that will fix these issues.

Just like many others, I have been affected by the software update and left with a camera that doesn't work.
I have been frantically searching through these discussions and tried everything that people have listed but to no avail.
I have also been told that as my warranty has ran out, apple will not fix the issue without paying? If this is true, then I think apple have lost the plot.
Can anybody confirm this is true? If not, I'm guessing a trip to the apple store is in order.
This is not something you expect from apple, especially when the market is so competitive..
I hope to find a fix soon.

On my iPhone4, when I carefully press the button to take a picture, then the flash does not work, but if I quickly "peck" it then it does; weird. It's taken me lots of ruined photos to work this one out. Why does Apple do this to us?
