Mine has had the same thing since very soon after I got it, and it's at the same angle. I think it's by design. It's weird-looking, I'll grant you that; if it's a lens cover thing, I'd expect it to be in the middle, not off-center like that.

You need to specify in your camera settings to capture a 5MP + 38MP image, as @Thomas says, by going into your camera app, and setting the "Camera Mode" option to JPEG (5MP) + DNG (34MP).

While the existing answers are on the right track, neither is entirely correct. The plastic cover you're looking at is the shutter - a device that controls the duration for which light is allowed to hit the sensor. The Lumia 1020, like several of its venerable predecessors, has a mechanical shutter (specifically, I believe, a simple leaf shutter), where one ...

Try setting it to "Normal": SETTINGS SYSTEM DISPLAY+TOUCH TOUCH TOUCH SENSITIVITY Other than that, keep in mind that the two taps must be: In the same location. Within a ½" or so. Short in duration. Neither ...

After upgrading to Windows Phone 8.1 I noticed the storage usage had moved to "Other" from photos. Turns out the Mac app for windows can't display or delete DNG files even though it can import them. The phone also doesn't show DNG files in the camera roll if the associated JPG files have been removed. Plugging the phone into a Windows 8 machine, and ...

The fast answer is; you can't. But in order to delete all a bit faster, use the manage button to see a bin pictograph left to every alarm, that way you can just spam at the top left corner of the screen to remove all the alarms.
