SONY DSC-W1 - Images have a greenish / blueish tint to them

I just bought the W-1. Took some indoor and some outdoor shots (its cloudy here). Did not use flash on outdoor shots. Took same shots with my old Olympus D-550. The Sony shots were a bit softer, but worse....they had a bluish and/or greenish tint to them. I do not know if this is how it shoots or if its defective or if my Olympus has better optics, or what. Also to note - I was dissapointed to see that my W1 was made in China - made that has somethign to do with it - some sort of quality control issue??? Maybe they moved manufacturing over there in preparation for the W-5 and W-7 which are both made in china. What should I do? I'm pretty close to returning it and getting a Canon 520 or S500 or waiting for some of the new camera to be released.

I've never adjusted my WB... And I've never had a problem. Perhaps it's the camera.

More likely than not its a WB issue. Were you using manual or automatic WB? sonys are known for not having the best auto WB mode :) Try using manual WB and see if that helps.

My pictures have a purple tint to them


You're either using old/expired film, or taking photos during dusk. Color film is balanced for daylight photography. Using it under conditions other than that will result in varying color casts on the resulting images.

Fluorescent lighting: Greenish
Indoor bulbs: Reddish/orange
Outdoor at night/dusk: Blueish/purpla
Ourdoor at dawn: Pink/blue

Or, you may have just gotten bad print work done. Try a different lab.

Hi, we cannot transfer images from our DSC-W1 cybershot Sony camera to our desk top.we have misplaced the box with the C-D in it can you help us


I presume you need the correct drivers/software for this to work.
Use Google to search the camera model number or go to the Sony website and the drivers are normally a free download. Download and install then plug in your camera.

I've seen a lot of DSC-W1 cameras where the power switch/shutter button assembly goes bad. This is most likely the case.

Intermittent green tinted pictures (both indoors and outdoors)


The only recommendation is to correct the colour balance in a photo editor in your computer Come back here if you do not know about photo editing. As far as the camera is concerned there is no remedy as far as I can see -its old age time for a new one Repair is not an option.

DSC-W1 Focus Problems


Try taking some flash pictures (in fairly good light) in Manual Mode @ 1/500sec to rule that out though. Use "Center" or "Spot" autofocus. If you don't have a tripod, then use the self timer for these tests. If camera shake can be ruled out, and the camera has focusing problems even in bright light, then that unit is trashed. Sorry to hear that the Sony service center couldn't fix it right the first time. Demand a replacement.
