I was out on a hike today and took a few pictures. When taking a picture I saw the usual animation where I see snapshot of the picture just taken, and then it slides away from the screen to display the camera viewfinder again. After coming home I notice this in my google photos: enter image description here

What causes this to happen?

  • Any chance your finger was over the lens? – NightShadeQueen Sep 20 '15 at 3:57
  • This happens to me when the camera accidentally gets activated in my pocket. – mattm Sep 20 '15 at 4:17
  • Are there any photos you made but there are not here? – Άνδρας Sep 20 '15 at 8:51

It appears as if this is an issue where the camera got activated in a dark place, such as your pocket. Undue pressure (false touches) can cause this, or even if the camera app took 2 pictures in burst mode (it isn't supposed to happen, but it does anyway). There can also be other issues which may rarely be for to a hardware problem, but since this is not a major problem I don't think it merits a service center visit.
