I noticed that if I use DRO,I get warmer yellowish or orange tones, especially in portrait color profile, otherwise the colors are usually pretty accurate to vibrant. Some have complained about warm white balance when using flash, but I have not had that problem often either. It depends on you settings, white balance and firmware version. Search this forum and you'll find lots of info.

Switch to standard color profile and tart by using the bare minimum settings on your camera and gradually add any automatic settings ( such as WB, DRO, etc) one by one to see if that makes a diffrence. For isntance, try setting your white balance manually and see what you get.

Also, if you do post processing, your monitor color profile can fool you into making the photos warmer. Is your monitor properly calibrated? It should be a first step into getting consistent and accurate results, otherwise you'll drive yourself crazy.

I hope that helps.

Does Sony gives a more yellow cast?

I especially like #4: Spider. Burn the edges a little to darken and perhaps add a little mid-tone contrast (or increase the blacks a little more) and it will look pretty good.
