I was at a concert yesterday and before the concert they lighted the thing with pink lights and smoke generators (The band was Revamp). My jolla was sure it was blue. It would be really nice in these situations to be able to tell the camera app, that's that color, calculate all the other colors from that perspective.

I've noticed that the white balance makes a big difference in color reproduction. Pink to blue is a pretty big difference, but not impossible. Did you try manually setting the white balance at the show?

I did, it stayed blue-ish. After that it got busier (it was very crowded), so I put my phone back in my pocket ;). It wasn't a disappointment, but more of a «could be better». Is there a setting beyond the about 4 profiles?

I started trying the white balance settings, and got annoyed with THIS.

If yours is a white balance issue, another feature request would be to be able to set the white temp in deg K.

I think it's white balance. The colors where off, but the quality of the pics was a bit more than I expected (not a lot more, just a bit).
