Camera change green to blue

Today I noticed that my green shirt comes out blue in the picture. All the other green stuff I came across did come out green. At home, I also found a green sweater that goes out blue. When I zoom in it is green and when zoom out a it turns blue. I tried 3 more othet Samsung models , 2 did not distort but the third did.

Why is this happening?

Looking from the 2 pictures of correct and wrong it looks like that the problem is due to the phone trying to adjust the white balance and not completely get that color wrong at the same time which results in that blue greenish tint instead of green.

I would not worry about that too much it probably is not faulty hardware

Hi @Daniel19831983 ,

 

colours vary depending on the light which is why the t-shirt colour change when you take a picture of it from a distance or close to it.

The shirt comes out blue in every lighting and every angle. Both at home and outside the home.

Flash doesn't affect color either. Only zoom in does not turn it to blue.

If you would like you can try to adjust the white balance on Pro Mode. You may be able to manually set the white balance to get the colors you want.

Yes it is work.

WB change the color to the original green.

Why is this happening? Why can't the camera automatically detect the colors correctly?

 The camera can't just show you "true color", because it's a mechanical device. In some ways, the post-processing it does to create a mimics human color perception but this is not always right as the camera doesn't have the perception that the human eye has. Using the white balance you are telling the camera which colour is white so it can process the scene correctly and display the right colours.

So isn't that a camera malfunction?

In your opinion, the camera working normal?

That is how cameras work @Daniel19831983 , It's an image principle so there is nothing wrong with yours.

As @TessM a camera is not the human eye and there is a lot of post processing to try to understand how the colours are and trying to get them to be like in real life, on auto however not always you can get the best results with some objects/ situations, it can happen
