    So while taking a picture using the stock Camera app, then tapping where I can view the pictures in-app, then tapping "done", my camera shutter was frozen. So I waited a few seconds then screenshotted it, and the app was then back to normal. Here's the screenshot:

    Looks like Apple has some freshening up to do on their shutter as its not visually perfect!

    What's wrong with it? The two toned shutter?

    Those lines are a limitation of the screenshot taking capability. Besides, you don't need it any better, do you?

    I see them now. But I do believe it's only on the iPad. This is the iPhone 4S (and 5's minus the controls):

    My point exactly. Although I don't need it perfect...it would have been made perfect if he oversaw it.

    Oaky I don't have this on my mini. It'll be logical to assume that the iPad 2 d
    Sent have it. Can anyone with a retina ipad confirm that there's looks like this? It may just be a glitch.

    Are you guys serious? You'd never see this under normal usage.

    The lines are probably there because they're using a low quality 16-bit image. The iPad 3/4's screen resolution is so high that it probably makes sense to use low quality assets in places no one looks. Otherwise, you use sacrifice performance for no real reason.

    People are going to be noticing the animation, not a frozen shutter that rarely shows up. Using a low quality image ensures that the shutter animation will always be smooth.

    Another possibility is, as ValleyForge said, that iOS just takes 16-bit screenshots.
