Dear community,

I often observe a bug that makes the screen of the camera app (video) change between green and norm picture. This does not occures right after start of the app but after a few times stopping recording and restarting recording. This only affects the screen but not the recording.

I'm using a XA2 (H3113) with latest SFOS

Greetings, broncheolus.

It was already in 3.1 and 3.2 an issue. Also the autofocus is focusing every few seconds...

@Raymaen every few seconds? are you sure? we need at last just one time. I don't think that is only the AF the problem, but the balance filtering in combination with AF. or only the balance filtering. Maybe the data compression or handling from Camera ship?

I can not say what it is caused by, but the focusing occures like i wrote on a regular basis...

I certain condition, it may affect pictures and video recording:

If you pay more attention, it happens by camera app start, or by transition of camera app in background to foreground.

Interesting is in combination of dark scene with flashlight, iso lower than 800 and contrast lower that 0,5.
Then we could get a blue taint instead of green....

This green color occures in stripes on the display. It also looks like they are gone in the recorded video when making one in this buggy green flickering mode.
