    Hello

    It seems like my fotos have a yellow / orange colour to them. I have tried with the standard settings and I have tried changing settings.

    Please have a look at some of the photos I have taken with my PS3 and please let me know what I can do to make the colours look more natural,

    Thanks

    In your settings you can change the color tone.

    You could also try a manual white balance

    Simple stuff first I'd say.
    Do you happen to know what the white balance setting was when you took the pics?
    Auto? Sunny? Cloudy? Incandescent? Florescent?
    Anything other than Auto or Sunny (since it was sunny out) will alter the correct colors.

    I was wondering that, my guess, South West USA, CA, AZ, NV.
    It looks normal to me.

    Hi - yes all was set to auto. I have also now taken photos with each of the settings of the camera - and they all seem to look strange. I seem to get a much better result if I make a picture from the video using VLC - but then I only get about 4 MP and not 12MP. I also tried white balance between 6000 and 7000.

    I am really impressed with the video of this drone, but I am having a hard time with the camera settings.

    Here is a few pictures I took with various settings - ie none / black and white / beach etc. None of them really looks good.

    Picture No. 2 looks the best to me. You can adjust the WB and exposure etc.

    I find the colors are generally either a little too vivid or washed out in JPG. I always shoot in JPG and RAW (DNG) and then color correct the RAW to my liking in post processing (Lightroom or ON1).
