This publication describes techniques and apparatuses that enable an electronic device (e.g., a smartphone) with at least one camera to capture high-quality static frames, a burst of frames, and/or video recordings. The camera uses an auto white balance (AWB) algorithm that performs a global intensity adjustment of, for example, primary colors (red, green, blue). In addition, the AWB algorithm accounts for illumination fluctuations, camera motions, and/or scene changes by using data from sensors. The sensors may include motion sensors, motion-detection sensors, spectral sensors, light-intensity sensors, ambient light sensors, and so forth.
