Question about Cameras

1 Answer

Hi, I've just bought a canon eos 40d, but in portrait mode under studio lighting , as well as natural light, people are the wrong skin tone. I've tried various settings in the control menu, ie: colour saturation. Any ideas?

Overexposing in auto modes, low light being reported.


The Auto modes on the 40D weren't very reliable when I ran comparison tests with other models..and systems. In fact I gave up with the 40D altogether! :) The anti-aliasing filter was a joke and the auto focus was....blaaah.

You mentioned you 'reset everything'? Yet it sounds like there may be some residual settings left behind. EG, white balance settings, flash sync speed. You might also want to check the individual presets for LANDSCAPE, PORTRAIT, NATURAL etc... Once you can start afresh, things should start to make sense as you make adjustments. Just remember to keep account of what adjustments you make.

CF (custom functions): are normally reset to factory however some settings remain (white balance adjustments, tonal adjustments etc)

I cant get corect skin colour tone in auto white balance.i got some photographs and i see exif data of that photos in photoshop.at the exposure mode it showing manual exposure but at the scene cature type...


You can't. The Portrait mode, like all the other point&shoot modes, are automatic. The camera controls most functions, like exposure metering, auto-focus mode, and white-balance. If you want control over the camera, you'll have to use one of the PSAM modes.

What is the difference between the F1 & the F2 film simulation mode?


F1 simulation mode suppresses flaring in flash highlights when the flash is used and stresses smooth tonal transitions in the reproduction of skin tones. It is ideal for portrait studio work where the aim is professional standard negative (i.e. Pro Neg Film). F2 simulation mode provides vibrant reproduction of natural colors such as blue skies and is ideal for landscape and nature photography. Almost like shooting with slide film (i.e. Fuji chrome/ Velvia) Note: Color spaces needs to be set on sRGB and D-Range set to wide in order to use these modes. Color, Tone and Sharpness cannot be changes in any F simulation mode.
