Camera [Q] Rear Camera/Flash Issue

Lately I've been having an issue with my rear camera and flash. For some reason the flash seems to either be too intense or the lens is not focusing properly after adjusting to the flash, leaving my photos extremely overexposed. I have attached photos of sample pictures.

reflashing google camera seems to solve the problem for me (I don;t know why nor how), even though they're not deleted.
I noticed that everytime I flash a new rom the problem occures.

maybe you have a clear case and the flash reflected on the borders of the cut-out for the camera?
happened to me before on an Xperia. I just used a sharpie to color the borders.

no, not at all,
it seems related to torch apk (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=366)

in my case reflashing google camera right after works.
