    Hi everyone!

    I just bought my new Huawei P8 Lite 2017. I think it has a great camera for this price. It does support camera2api, so I have a lot of manual setting. (ISO, Shutter speed, manual focus etc.) But the main camera app doesn't have DNG option. But some third-party apps support it. But there is a little problem: In jpeg mode the colors are great, but when I change to RAW mode, the photos will be like this: (1. photo). And here is a jpeg photo (2. photo). So there is a little problem with the colors. I cant fix it in photoshop.

    Thank you all!

    2. Photo: 2. photo.jpg

    Sounds like your phone/camera is functioning perfectly when used as designed but having trouble with a third-party app. I'd contact the vendor of the app for suggestions.

    Maybe the white balance has acccidentlaly been set to tungsten, or to a large "offset" from normal? Maybe reset the camera withg a two-button reset of some type? A reset all setting types of procedure, perhaps?

    It looks like the .dng file is missing the Red channel.

    You're showing us a .JPG file. When you download the .DNG to an editor, do you get the same effect?

    Could you try another camera app?

    I agree, use another app to open RAW files

    It looks like the red and blue channels are swapped in the DNG:

    Red channel (DNG, JPG)
    DNG-red.jpg JPEG-red.jpg

    Blue channel (DBG, JPG)
    DNG-blue.jpg JPEG-blue.jpg

    Green channel (DNG, JPG)
    DNG-green.jpg JPEG-green.jpg
