Default [Q] camera problem

Anyone have problems in low light/not out outdoors with camera on note 2? If i go all the way back to stock 4.1.1 rom with that camera it is much brighter. Once I upgrade or flash any other rom the camera becomes unrealistically dark. Anyone experience this or have a fix for it? I have tried several cameras they are all the same. Full wipes. It seems to be some kind of software issue or something but I can't seem to figure out a fix. I can brighten things up with a low light setting...but that is also taken out in the newer cameras. It is especially bad in videos. Any insight would be great.
