Grey Photos Photos appear to have no or very little colour.....Is it faulty or is it a setting problem? The bits that have colour are quite vivid but the rest seems in black and white

    I have the same problem, yellows and reds are overly saturated. Dark green leaves on trees come out like black and white film. Skin tones are unnatural, usually orange. It's not your white balance, it's a flaw in the design of the camera. Improper white balance effects the overall tint of the shot, not just select items in the frame.

    this is a major flaw in the image processing engine. i have the same issue, and it's not a white balance error

    I have the same problem! I bought this camera specifically for my trip to Hawaii and because it was overcast some days, most of my pics came out looking extremely desaturated.

Early production versions of the S1000 had this error in the firmware. There is a firmware upgrade that addresses this problem. Here is a link to the upgrade; http://www.fujifilm.ca/x16655.xml
Later versions of the S1000 came from the factory with this version of the firmware, and the colour problems stopped. Customers of mine who have performed the upgrade all report the problems to be rectified.

Hello - You will find this happens mostly in Automatic mode which needs a better spread of light.
The grey background is when another color has been highlighted/increased and the background get saturated out (usually the sky goes grey) or the clouds go white.
Try going into Scenic settings ..ie.. vivid , sunset , soft etc and keep that setting open while taking shots.
or -- Use a Neutral density filter where there are bright and dark spots in frame.
or - Use the aep button to increase a stop before taking a picture..
AND -- get into S or A or Manual mode .
I called Fuji Tech support UK and they admitted the S1000 cameras where 1 stop low on light in the fully auto mode, because it was easier to AD light afterwards in software,

My Xerox 8400 is printing the wrong colors. Where it's red, it's printing a brown shade and where it should be grey, it's printing green. My logo is grey and red and it's printing all grey, but not the...


Try printing a light stripes test page (Troubleshooting, print quality problems, troubleshooting print quality page).

If you do not appear to have many missing jets but the colours are all just wrong it may be that the ink has gone stale. Run a couple of head cleans and you should see the colours start to improve. If it is getting better, all you can do is keep running head cleans until you have replenished all the ink in the printhead well.

This problem is common in situations where a lot of black and white printing is done, with very little colour.
Alternatively, it could be that your wiper/cleaning blade is not cleaning the head properly and is smearing the different coloured inks across the head, or possibly that your printhead is leaking colours but I think the first solution should solve your problem.
Hope this helps.

Printing issues with Epson r285


hi! try this! 1. go to control panel, select the printer, then right click the model of your printer, select properties, then select printing preferences.    in printing preference, select effect, then check the box of vivid photos. If you check vivid photos it will add enhancement to your printout. But thats not it, 2. open your photoshop, find your color settings, set your RGB color to (sRGB IEC61996- 2.1) then you CMYK color to (U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2) then off all your Color-management Policies and don't mind anything. 3. After your Edit your photos from RGB, then convert it to CMYK, then try printing it.

Black colour ?


Thats because it's using the other colours to mix what it thinks to be shades of grey. Due to the black ink being pigment based and the colours inks dye base, when printing onto glossy paper the machine will use the colour dye based inks to make up black. 
If you were to print on plain paper, set to greyscale, then the machine will just use the black as the pigment ink sits onto of the plain paper and will not run should the paper get wet.  With glossy paper the ink has to be absorbed into the paper ad the Black pigment ink will not do this so the machine will use the coloured inks.

Sucks but true.

Colour representation on Eos 40d


Have you checked your white balance? Having an improper white balance is one of the most common color problems with digital cameras. 
If true color is what you're after, then you need to tell the camera what true white is, too. Try either shooting a grey card, or using an expodisc. For each lighting situation, you properly expose a shot of the grey card, or a blank frame using the expodisc, and then you set your camera to use that image as the white balance image. Now, your camera will see what you see a whole lot better. Keep in mind that the auto white balance is just a best approximation of what the camera thinks it sees. However, in many situations, there is not only one light source. There are reflected light sources, diffused light sources, and direct light sources all over the place — all of them different color temperatures and intensities. The grey card and expo disc help take these all into account. And while it may seem like a lot of trouble to set the white balance all the time, I think it will be well worth it when you (and everyone) else is amazed at the true colors you are capturing.
Happy shooting!
