Hi,

When I connect two cameras (either 2 MIPI-CSI or 1 MIPI-CSI and 1 with DVP) and try to view them simulataneously, the auto white balance of both cameras becomes very poor. It takes a long time to settle, flashing between different balances before generally settling with an orange tint. Sometimes the white balance will be correct, but it will still take >15s to settle. When only one camera is connected, it is fine, quick and correct white balance. I have attached two comparison photos illustrating the difference. DualCameras.png has the two camera feeds side-by-side, whereas SingleCamera.png shows the correct white baalnce with only one camera plugged in.

Due to how the cameras behave, I suspect the two cameras' calibration processes are interfering with each other.

I have observed this effect with both 6.0.1 and 7.1, using the CameraExample.apk. I have attached dmesg and logcat files of me starting the firefly and opening the CameraExample app, if that helps.
