Issue in video call when switching from rear to Front camera

I have observed that in some cases when switching the video call from rear to front cam,and then back and coming back to front cam spoils the image quality and there is a lot of red color in the video. The only option is to stop the call and restart it.

 

I hope this is something people use regularly and needs to be fixed.

Hi,

since I just begun to use Skype on my Nokia Lumia 800, may I please know whether it is possible to switch between the front and rear cameras during a Skype video call on this Windows Phone?

Thank you in advance for your advice how to switch between the front and rear cameras.

Hi,

Since the Nokia Lumia 800 does not have a secondary camera, there is no possibility to switch between them.

I miss not being able to switch from my Nokia Lumia 920's Front-facing Camera (2.1 MP) to the Rear Main Camera (7.9 MP) for giving tours or giving instructions. It's helpful to see what your recipient is seeing. I hope Microsoft incorporates this functionality! My previous Lumia 900 was able to do this!
