    I have the issue that pictures I take at night come out kinda dark even with flash on. And also the pictures are also infested with red eyes and I can't get rid of it. I thought the last update fixed this issue. So does anyone know how i fix this problem.

    Turn off the flash - that causes the red eye. What kind of pictures are you taking? People in foreground? Are you wanting to see the background? Perhaps an attached photo would help us to help you.

    My pictures of people at night with flash are always terrible. With more than RED eyes, they get brillant, shinny, white eyes. I can't get rid of them. With the flash of the Bold 9900 it never happened. I can't take good pictures in a dark place with my Z10 and that is so frustrating in a party for example...

    Turn off the flash, and change the 'scene' in camera settings into Night. It's whole lot better, but keep in mind that your hands have to be very very stable when taking pictures on this scene mode, otherwise it'll produce shaky pic. I'll give you an example pic later tonight

    On e very useful tip is to drag the focus square to the darkest area of the screen.

    Ok so here is my photos taken at night, I was walking on my neighborhood.

    Auto mode with flash

    As you can see it's not that good, but at least 'acceptable'. Well, good night!

    If the usual trick to make night pictures come out better is to focus on the dark areas so the camera algorithm lightens the entire picture, then it makes sense that an object illuminated by the flash would cause the photo to come out darker.

    I found the exact same behavior on my 920. I never used flash as it resulted in darker photos and just went without flash

    I see your problem. NO LIGHT! Perhaps BlackBerry needs infrared sensors and leds.

    you don't have a fixed subject in your photo, just the landscape in the dark. So, where do you want the flash light fall on and reflect back to sensor?

    you are trying to take a photo of a landscape in the dark (without any close object where some light would reflect). That means no light or very low light. So, you need to keep the shutter of the camera ON for more time to let more light in to the sensor. Do you have a manual shutter speed controller in your Z10 camera?

    For automatic cameras night mode controls the shutter speed and/or adjust the light differences using software. That means, if you don't have manual control, you will get the best shot in the dark using night mode. However, since you don't have a close subject, and it's low light, don't expect miracle. As others suggested, focus in the dark part so that the camera's software brightens other parts of the photo. And use a camera stand, the same photo will look clearer and better.

    As you can see it's not that good, but at least 'acceptable'. Well, good night!

    Finally, you need to be tricky when you are handling a tricky situation. Don't expect these dumb devices to read people's mind just now (may be those days are not far though).

    I thought that the recent update fixed the low light pictures and that you wouldn't be required to do this trick?

    You still need to have some knowledge of photography.

    I use my dslr and increase the aperture and adjust for shutter speed for a night shot. So this trick is new to me.
