    Photos come out grainy...

    Hi peeps, I don't understand why my pictures come out grainy. I have changed my settings around (I am a photographer by trade) and still, I keep on getting grainy pics. I know the camera can take great photos but, for me for some reason I see a lot of grain, even before I take the shot.. I can see the grain! Am I missing something here? Maybe my pone is just bad? If I use a 3rd party app like Shot Control it seems to be much better but, I want to be able to just use the native app... any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance,
    San

    I think its a bad camera. My son and I both have the GS3 and we take identical pictures and his are very grainy. And mine takes great pics. We tried settings, different camera apps but nothing works. VZW is sending out a replacement.

    There have been a few reports of this. Mine takes amazing photos and i keep all the settings on auto or off as I haven't had a chance to mess with the exposure or iso settings yet.
    Other folks have suggested alternate camera apps, but i dont think it's necessary with the S3. If you can't get it to shoot clear pictures, definitely take it back and get a replacement.
    Good luck & let us know how you make out.:thumbup:

    I agree. My phone takes amazing pics even in low light. Whether its stock camera or camera zoom fx vignette or little photo. All are beautiful and sharp. You probably need a replacement.

    Re: Photos come out grainy...

    thank you all for the help, I had a feeling it was the phone, now I am convinced. my friend who has the same phone took the same pic as me, mine was grainy, hers wasn't, going to contact t-mobile tomorrow. I'm glad I finally asked because I have been disappointed since I got the phone and here it is just a build issue, good!

    Yeah, like anything else that's mass produced, a few lemons will roll off the assembly line. Hopefully you're replacement will be to your liking. Before you set up your replacement, it's always best to do a factory reset.

    Interesting, do a factory reset before using the new one? I wouldn't have thought of that. I am glad to know it is not just something I was doing wrong as I really had wracked my brain about it for this long.

    Ever since I got my phone I thought the camera just took grainy pics. I'm just realizing now it could actually be my phone. Damn. Even on superfine I can't take clear pictures. Every once in a while I will get one.

    Definitely not. This phone takes amazingly clear pictures. Exchange that puppy!

    Yep, I called T-mobile, it was definitely my phone... I did a reset and still no luck so, today they are sending me a new phone!
    Addicted2Droid, you should call your provider and get a replacement before it is too late. One of the things I was most excited about was the camera so for me, having it grainy is not an option... not to mention that it is a defect.
