    there are quite a few threads about this. A soft reset can fix it temporarily but it seems we'll need a software update to fix it for good.

    Happened to me this evening

    When you're taking a picture in low light, I've found it useful to tilt the phone up and down around the image area a bit before taking the picture.  While taking a picture last night, I was tilting it around to try to get a better angle, and suddenly the picture brightness jumped considerably, as if the sensor that detected the amount of light suddenly decided, "Oh! It's dark!"  I took the pic and it looked great.  Trying the same thing again later, I found I had to rock it around a bit and then the extra brightness kicked in.  Go figure.


    "Tilt around" time took about 5-10 seconds until the brightness of the photo kicked-up.

    My iphone 5 camera is also working very poorly.  Flash does not fire with photo, and photo is dark.
