I have a stock G2 and did the update to KitKat yesterday morning.. I played around with the camera and can take pics of inanimate objects fine.. However, when taking photos of people, animals, etc; I get this weird pixeling or over processing by the camera app.. This is in Normal mode with all stock settings - no flash. If I turn the flash on, the pic seems normal.

I understand the update was just released - just curious if anyone else can confirm this problem on their device.

I tried just clearing camera app data - didn't really seem to help. Could you post a pic?

I did a full backup, will perform the factory reset shortly. Will report back if this helped me.

So doing a factory reset didn't help. It looks like its something with the Auto White Balance - If I put it in Incandescent mode manually, the pictures don't pixelate/over process.
