The HD7's camera is seeing pink; similar to HD2
Uh oh, this is not good. Looks like on the eve before its big launch, a major flaw in the T-Mobile HTC HD7's camera has been discovered.
Evidently, the HD7's camera has a pink-color issue whereby whites become heavily rose colored. For instance, take the picture above taken with my T-Mobile HD7: that's of my very white refrigerator. There is also this example from Kevin C. Tofel on Twitter and Matt Miller confirms that this is like what the HD2 suffered from before it had an update. That leads us to believe this can be corrected by software. At least?
Of course, you can also color correct for this in post-processing, but you shouldn't have too. And lets be honest, that's some serious pink.
What say you, HTC?
Thanks, Tim Ferrill, who's at a soccer game, for the heads-up!
