Description Allie Miller 2015-02-18 07:31:48 UTC
When taking pictures using the Android camera intent in the Camera App Sample project, the picture preview (where the user can choose to save or discard the picture) that the camera intent shows after the picture was taken is blurry. However, the actual picture that was saved to the file system is not blurry. 

Steps to reproduce
1) Deploy Camera App Demo sample project to Android device running API 19.
2) Take a picture.
3) Preview the picture taken in Step 2.

Expected results
The picture should be clear

Actual results
The picture appears blurry, but seems clear when viewing the picture after it is saved

Additional information
Original reporter of issue experienced this issue on Samsung Galaxy Note Pro, Note 10.1, Galaxy Tab Active and Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (all running API 19)
