It gets cropped regardless but it's still not acceptable in my opinion. Basic editing can clean that, even just a simple clone, but again, not acceptable in my opinion. This camera was supposed to be better.I've never experienced it on my iP4S in conjunction with the Olloclip. They don't make it to fit the iP5 yet so I can't really say. I don't make it a habit to frame the sun or a strong light source in low light or even have them at the edge of my shots. This will create unnecessary lens flaring. Basic photography will tell you to avoid those types of shots.
I've never had that problem so this is all new to me. It makes sense, and it doesn't bother me that much because I'm not interested in photography but editing. I just know its a pain in the butt for a lot of people, the average joe who's not a photographer. Thanks for the info thou.The sensor on the new iP5 is more sensitive which helps it in low light but the trade off is picking up more light which will cause lens flaring.it can easily be avoided with better photography techniques. It will also happen with DSLR's. Have you ever wondered why they use lens hoods? It's to reduce lens flare. Here's the same technique with the iP5.
