This is my first post on WP Central. I have just bought a lumia 920 and have upgraded it to amber. Yesterday i installed nokia smart cam and pro cam on it. I am facing a strange problem while using smart cam app. At home, in normal room light, the viewfinder has a constant wavy flicker moving in the upward direction as if the screen refresh rate is slow. Please note that its not screen flickering as mentioned by some one else in this forum, the icons on the camera screen aren't flickering. Its just the camera view that has this strange behavior just like the one you see when you capture a running TV on a video footage. Waves moving in the upward direction due to loss of refresh rate. The stock camera app also suffers from this issue but very slightly and only on the scenes where the light is comparatively low. The photos that i capture do not get affected by this flicker. Also, If i take the camera in broad daylight, there is no issue at all in any camera app.
I have tried resetting camera, reinstalling apps and resetting phone to factory without success.
A friend of mine in the office who has some good knowledge about cameras is of the opinion that a camera with high shutter speed would usually suffer from this issue and that it is perfectly normal as it does not affect the photo quality when you capture something.
I have installed all the system updates after Amber and i am not sure if i am missing something.
It really is painful to visit the service center just after few days of purchase so please help................
