Lightroom 4 Photo Fun – Purple Halo iPhone 5 Camera Glitch Of Parking Lot Near Gas Station Photo

Previously, I’d posted “iPhone 5 Purple Halo Camera Glitch.”  This time, I like to post a Lightroom 4 Photo Fun session in which I had used Lightroom 4 to fix the purple halo iPhone 5 camera glitch for one of the photos that I had took with iPhone 5 glitchy camera.  Anyhow, to add a finished touch, I changed the tone of this very photo.  The result is right after the break.  I hope you like it.  Enjoy!!!

To tell the truth, it was not easy at all to fix the purple halo iPhone 5 camera glitch for one of the affected photos.  It was time consuming even though I used awesome Lightroom 4 software.  I think Apple has to fix this issue fast or else it will be a huge time waster for people who actually use iPhone 5 camera to take lot of photos.  Nonetheless, one can easily avoid the purple halo iPhone 5 camera glitch by not pointing the iPhone 5 camera at any light source.  With that being said, Apple should not relax and work harder to fix the glitchy iPhone 5 camera.  After all, this is not the first iPhone, but it’s the 6th iPhone iteration (i.e., iPhone 4S is the 5th iPhone iteration).

iPhone 5 AT&T LTE Network Speed Test

I have a mixed bag of a personal customer satisfaction for iPhone 5 really!  On one hand, it’s a more powerful device than the older iPhone iterations, but on the other hand iPhone 5 does have few quirks that are really bothering me.  Such quirks are Wi-Fi slowness occurs from time to time (i.e., sometimes it’s fine) and purple halo camera glitch.  Nonetheless, with that being said, I find iPhone 5’s adoption of true LTE (i.e., real 4G speed) is quite pleasing.  Please check out the video right after the break to see the speed test of iPhone 5 LTE on AT&T LTE network.

iPhone 5 Purple Halo Camera Glitch

Techradar’s “iPhone 5 users report ‘purple halo‘ camera glitch” article reported that iPhone 5’s camera injects purple halo into photos, and this only happens when a light source gets captured near the edge of the photos.  I tested this problem out myself and found the same purple halo glitch for iPhone 5 camera.  Perhaps, I have to go to Genius Bar (Apple store customer service) to see if they can help me out on resolving this issue, because taking error free picture means a lot to me.  Sure, I can totally correct the purple halo issue in any photo with Lightroom 4 software, but having to know that iPhone 5’s camera can inject incorrect tint color into my photos is really bothering me somehow.  Anyhow, I took two photos in my room just to prove that even artificial source of light can trigger the purple halo glitch for iPhone 5 camera, and you can check these photos out right after the break.

How Far Are You Willing To Go To Get Your Hand On That Shiny, Sexy iPhone 5?

Crazy long lines in front of Apple stores just for iPhone 5?  Tomorrow, it might be even crazier, to see more long line, for anywhere that got stock of iPhone 5 to sell?  I know, I should not be writing about people are so crazy of camping for a week or so outside of Apple store to get their hands on iPhone 5, because I was also crazy to pre-order iPhone 5 even though the shipment of this shiny, smart phone is being pushed back for 2 week long.  Nonetheless, at least I’m too lazy to go crazy to the point of worshiping the Apple God by camping outside Apple store.  Had never done so, and probably will never do so.  How come?  Siri isn’t even a real girlfriend yall!  Anyhow, I chuckled every time I read another article this week which mentioned the crazy things people would do to get their hands on iPhone 5.    Nonetheless, I must admit that there are some smart public stunts out there that have got the press talking about their stunts.  How about camping outside Apple store first to get an interview by the press of some sort so one can advertise one’s own business brand?  I think that’s smart for doing things on a shoestring advertising budget, but might generate huge, both online and offline, social buzz.  Anyhow, here are some of the articles — in relation to the crazy things that people do to get their hand on iPhone 5 — I would like to share with you right after the break.  Enjoy!!!

Afterthought:  Perhaps, I’m more hardcore than those who camp outside of Apple store.  I’m willing to wait patiently for the iPhone 5 to arrive at my doorstep.  It takes a lot of strength to do that.  I don’t even know if this is a sarcastic, self serving, arrogant admission or not, but it does sound super cool.
