Question about Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera
I was out today shooting some images around town with a friend and when comparing what we had done my images all seemed to be way too green. I was shooting at night & outdoors in manual mode with W/B on auto.
We took some test shots indoors and I had the same problem. My friend uses a 450d & I was using a 40d with a 17-85 kit lens, I had the same problem with my 70-200is f2.8 lens.
I tried resetting the camera to its original settings and still had the same issue. After some tinkering with the settings I managed to get a more natural color balance, however I can only achieve this by adjusting the in the menu "W/B Shift/BKT" to B9,M9.
I've never had this issue before and the camera has only done about 3000 clicks and is about a year old.
Not sure what to do, is there a fix for this problem or a way of calibrating the colors?
This is actually a white balance issue.
Not to be a wise guy, but these solutions are on pages 63-71 in the owners manual. If you don't have it, get it here:
On P 70 you'll see the White Balance Correction instructions, I'd start there if it's a global problem. But note that there are other ways to hande individual lighting situations: Custom white balance is very easy and popular, p68. Also check out the picture styles on p63 and note you can create custom styles in that menu, p65-66.
Hope this helps.
