I have noticed that I have two photos in my Sailfishx gallery that are 90% greyed out, with only a small amount of photo shown on the right hand side. This has affected both front and rear cameras. See photo below (rotated for some reason).

Most photos are fine, albeit X focusing issue, but curious as to why this occasionally happens.

Is anyone seeing this happen too?

UPDATE. Corrupted grey photo, later became fine on its own, but other photos that were fine now have grey on them?! See example below. Both images are the same, the grey one was initially displayed and later the photo became viewable in full.

Weird and weird, Google Chrome is not showing the grey that is covering your image, I had to check it out using IE instead.

@Edz firefox and midory too, but if you download his photo, and open it with a dedicated tool, then you'll see it. opened with gimp, a message box appears with "Premature end of jpeg file". Interesting issue i think...

@richie try to compare the exif data between the pics which are good, and the one which defect.
I'm not an expert but you have an isospeedrating to 625, that's a little bit high for the kind of interior picture. maybe it makes problem with other option like such an high exposure time (1/40 sec).
Does it make always the same problem, every time you take a picture with the same camera options?
If yes ,then try 400 iso and an higher exposure time.

Sounds like corrupted image files.

I have noticed that other photos that were fine, now are partially grey. It seems to affect different photos at different times.

And oddly the photo I originally attached to this post, is now fully viewable!! The grey has gone! How can a photo that looks corrupted become fine?
