bought the new 12MP camera module, installed it. Camera works, but no flash. Also no torch light. Disassembled, cleaned contacts, reassembled, still no luck. Installed the old 8MP camera module again, flash and torch light work as they should.
Is there something to configure to activate the flash/torch light of the new camera module?
Flash does not work while the flashlight works fine. Photos taken in bad light conditions are always too dark. There is a pre-flash and then the led is dark when the camera takes the photo.
Latest Open OS installed.
Has anybody else this issue?
My husband and I both got the new camera modules and both modules have the same issue; the flash/torch is not working. Anyone else experiencing the same issue? Also, my phone has started rebooting randomly once or twice a day. No idea if this is related, but it didn’t do this before.
Yes, sorry, I probably should have added what I’ve done troubleshooting wise. I am running OS 17.08.1, tried the default camera app, Snap Camera and Open Camera and the Torch function. Doesn’t work with any of those.
Edit: Just tried de- and reattaching the camera module, and it didn’t change anything about the flash.
Edit 2: I just updated to 17.08.1.1, and now the flash works fine! Just the front camera still shows a far too dark image in the default Camera app (but works still in OpenCamera, so it’s fine!). Not sure if this is a white balance issue or something else… have to test that in daylight conditions tomorrow…
I’m having a brand new Fairphone 2 with both recent camera modules (12 MP and 5 MP).
Sadly I didn’t test the flash with the stock ROM before installing LineageOS. But I guess it’s a problem with the AOSP standard camera app, which is the default in LineageOS and probably in “Fairphone Open OS” too.
Use Google Camera app. (or maybe some other camera app)
