Default Gain Control in FZ10

I tried this question over on dpreview, but didn't get any responses.

Does anyone know what the Gain Control EXIF field represents in an image from an FZ10. I took two pictures, a second apart, in Program mode and they look very different.

The first has an ISO of 150 and a Gain Control of "Low Gain Up" and has a blue cast.

The second has an ISO of 100 and a Gain Control of "None" and has a red cast.

Everything else is the same.

Absolutely no idea, but it looks like when you use the EV mode to get 3 shots, 2 either side of the default EV level.
I can only assume something inside the FZ10 triggered an internal setting which chaged the WB level on the first one to give the Low Gain.
When did you buy the camera? And what's the firmware revision? Use the burst & down on the 4way to display it on the LCD in playback mode with an image still on the memory card. I'll see how it compares to mine and take an edumacated guess as to whether it's generic or some sort of (improved?) feature as a result of a later firmware model - should that be the case!

Thanks for your reply. I bought the camera in November.
Holding down the burst-mode button and then pressing the Down on the 4-way, while in Playback mode, doesn't do anything on my camera. In any event the EXIF says that the Software version is 1.05.

Yours must be one of the most recent ones, as I've heard this function has been disabled. Did you make sure there was an image to view before doing it - it's the only way it works?
That said, Ver. 1.05 is same as mine which is followed by :000D - so unless that parts different, it sounds and seems yours is the same as most, if not all of ours, and therefore is endemic to each camera.
I've never came across it, so unfortunately I can't help beyond guesswork and assumptions.
Sorry!
