    I am a new iphone user. I have iphone 4 and bought an incipio case and ifrogz case. Went to the fireworks last night in my local town and I took some pics with my new phone. I noticed that using the flash with the case on produced some awful pictures. The flash must be bouncing off the case and being directed into the lens. The pictures were fine without the case.

    Looks like I may be purchasing bumpers...

    Yah this happens with alot of cases. They flash will shine off of the cases and mess it up. You could just take it out of the cases when you need flash though...

    Wow that sinks, but by looking at the case it doesn't even seem that it would block the flash. The pictures do prove it though.

    Could you cut the case a little to make it so there's no case around it?

    Cute kid, BTW.

    Exactly the same that happens to my iPhone with this clear rubber Belkin case that I got from best buy. Picture turns out to be just like ours with the flash on. Good it's just not me having this problem. Sucks that we have to take off the case.
