Can I check with you guys if there is some problem with the white balance on the Lumia 9xx? I know the auto white balance can be quite fickle but I realise that even if I choose a pre-set white balance, the white balance can also change if you tilt the camera position??

I notice this effect when a near object enters the camera's view when it is tilted and also if I tilt the camera about 45 degrees downwards. And under indoor lighting. Anyone else?

Yah, L920 white balance is a bit crazy in built-in Camera. But I think Pro cam is better right?

That's odd. At least you can Autofix to correct WB issues easily.

Manually set WB if Pro Cam keep getting it wrong. You can use my guide here.

Thanks E_T, the problem is not setting the white balance but the greenish tint that the camera adds to the photo *after* the shot is taken i.e. when I first take the shot, the white balance looks good and pretty accurate, then about 1-2 secs after the shot is captured, there is a greenish tint added to the processed shot by the camera/software.

Does it look ok on a PC or laptop? It's possible the Colour adjustment on your Lumia 1020 is to blame. I don't see this problem on my Lumia 1020 but then again I set my Saturation to the lowest so it's closer to real-life.
