I'm running Sailfish on my Xperia XA2. The colors of the photos sometimes have a blue tint if I use the flash 20190108_202706.jpg and they are not very accurate.

The autofocus works sometimes not very accurate, too.

Greetings, Frank

Hello, I have also observed this problem. It seems to be related to the camera flash. If I disable the flash, I do not have the blue in the picture

I also suffer from this problem. When you take pictures of humans with flash, they often look veeeeery ill on the pictures and will never allow you to photograph them again ;)

I have same problems. And AWB doesn't work properly and it turns black when i put +2. Especially front camera shows now many tiny little colored dots when I try to take a photo.

Comparing to Android-version camera and video camera are now much worse at the moment.

My device: Sony Xperia XA2, H4113

I have also experienced this problem.

Whenever I really have to use a flash for my pictures (I try to avoid flash whenever possible), then I simply manually adjust the white balance from "AWB" (automatic white balance) to the "light bulb". This normally fixes the weird colours and lets me take acceptable photos with flash.

However, the camera software needs some reiterations. Especially autofocus and white balance are off in roughly 1/4 of the pictures I take.

It's no wonder that Sailfish camera needs some reiterations
