    is there a way to make the color warmer?

    thanks!

    That is an interesting question. I would guess that if the code is open for a developer to create an application to modify the LED power levels to increase and decrease intensities then you have a possible solution. Problem is I'm not sure if this would fall under Android's end or Samsung and possible proprietary files to control camera hardware & software. Then next question is this something that could be done on a stock device or would rooting be required to modify this if possible?

    I posted this question in a camera forum and most people told me to experiment with camera flash filters. Just use a hole puncher and make tiny flash color filters... these filter sheets apparently only cost a few dollars... I'll get a few different colors and see if that improves anything....

    something like this: $12 on Amazon... but I'm still looking for cheaper alternatives...
    will visit my local camera shop to see if they have anything under $2. (yes, I'm a certified cheapskate)

    Just a thought:
    What about a small piece of yellow Saran Wrap? or the cheap translucent file folders? (lots of different colors and available at any office store)
    Just stick a piece over your flash, or if you are using a case just insert it between your phone and the case.

    Good Luck

    I decided to cut a tiny piece of clear screen protector. After placing it on the LED flash, I used color dry-erase markers. After trying a few different colors, a light yellow marker worked got me the slightly warm color that I wanted. Total cost: $0. (since I have many unused spare screen protectors and dry-erase markers)

    Yup, I just tried a few different things (slow day at work)

    This a peace of a Mello Yello label I took off of my soda.
    It is a little to yellow, but it worked great and gives me some ideas on how to take some different looking pics.

    If you have a case just take a piece of wax paper and put it over the flash under the case. Colors are much warmer.

    Google filter gels. You can get yellow ones for a couple of bucks that will make about a gazillion tiny flash filters. Or you can take any piece of yellow tinted plastic and stick it over the flash since unlike gels and other lens filters it doesn't need to be optically flat.
