Anyone figure out where this green hue in the center of the frame of the camera is coming from? I have one of the galaxy gears with the hole covered up so its not moisture i don't think.

That sure is a green hue! That sucks man, I'm sorry. Have you taken any pictures of the Sun, or bright like a welding arc? It's defiantly not moisture.

If you recently purchased it, try to get it warrantied where you got it. Otherwise you'll have to send it to Samsung for warranty repair.

Wow this is the second time it happened? That really sucks! I've had mine since Xmas and no problem here. I've only seen this happen on old ccd cameras. Usually happened when exposed to bright light. Or a burn in from viewing the same thing for a long time. Like a security camera with a window on view. I'm sorry you found 2 bad apples in the group.

i have similar issue, but it comes and go.. there are days when pictures are taken normally.
i won't return mine for warranty, i think they would replace it with the new product!

I took a picture outside and this is what i got. Now, I am confused. That chunk missing was an edit i made but the hue is gone.
