Camera Metering Function Missing in

I have noticed a difference with the camera app after the 10.2.1 update.


Before the update, if you are in camera mode and dragged the focus square in the middle to dark or light areas of the shot you are pointing at, the camera would auto-adjust the lighting (ie. pointing to a darker area would make everything brighter while pointing to a lighter area would dim the shot). This was one of the features I really liked about the BlackBerry 10 camera.


With 10.2.1, this function seems to be gone. The lighting remains static. I am using a Z10 myself.


I have confirmed this with several BlackBerry 10 users. Please see thread for more evidence: http://forums.crackberry.com/showthread.php?t=900835


Z30 doesn't seem to be affected. But Z10 and Q10 are.
