    This looks normal:

    This one, 2 seconds later, is yellow:

    Any ideas? It's happened a lot - maybe 25% of the photos have the yellow cast to them. Sometimes it's single photos, other times an entire block.

    I'd also liek any suggestions on how to correct it, since I'd like to stitch these together.

    Looks like it's the auto white balance messing things us due to the large amount of green in the picture. Unfortunately I don't know of a way to stop it.

    I really wish the GoPro had more manual control of the settings for stills

    "Auto" white balance in GIMP seems to have restored it to sanity.
