An amplifier circuit for use in a one tube color camera has a gain which is determined by the magnitude of an illumination pedestal accompanying a carrier frequency representative of a particular color. The gain as controlled is used to compensate for gamma coefficient distortion provided by an image pickup device utilized in said camera.
