Bug Description

This has been tested on Thinkpad W510 and 2nd gen VAIO-P using 12.10 beta 1 ISO

Expected result:

The picture saved by Ubiquity looks the same as it did in the preview window

Actual result:

Ubiquity displayes a proper preview but takes dim picture with incorrect colors

Description of the problem:

The ubiquity page that offers to take the users' photo displays a bright, properly-lit preview. Once the 'take photo' button is pressed the camera is turned off momentairly and back on again (as does the LED next to the camera) - to take the picture (presumably). The picture taken is very dim and has incorrect colors. It looks like the preview window in the first second (or so), before the camera sensor/firmware adjusts the picture settings.
