I don't have a solution for the blue... mine does that too sometimes. But I did just figure out how to get rid of the hilite on screen - just keep pressing the info button until it is clear.

Maybe you messed up with the white balance settings of your camera? try to reset these (according to the manual).

What would make my pictures and videos come out with a lot of blue tint?


Hi there,
Regarding Blue tint of Photos and Videos - This is tied directly to your White Balance Settings. When you White Balance is set to Auto, the Camera determines the best setting to use to for White Balance (How much Blue or Orange needs to be added for best White). To get a Blue Tint, the Camera's White Balance is most likely set manually to something like Incandescent or Indoor. First you will want to see that your White Balance is set to Auto - If it was not, then Auto should fix your problem. But If it is alrready on Auto, and you are still getting Blue tint both Indoor and Outdoor, then the Camera's Software may be faulty.
Hope this helps!

Picturess are too green


there are advanced color correction modes,
Blue or dark pictures/videos
Keep your shooting distance inside of 2ft to 3ft, depending on
visibility and ambient light.
If you are using only one light, considering adding another light
(dual lights) or/and external flash accessory. The ideal
set-up is a combination of a light plus flash.
Consider purchasing the SeaLife Wide Angle Lens (SL975). The
fisheye lens allows you to get closer to the subject and fit more
into to picture frame.

For SeaLife camera with external light accessory (No external flash):
1) Set the camera's scene mode to Sea mode or Snorkel mode
2) Change camera's PHOTO and VIDEO White Balance
settings to DAYLIGHT.
For SeaLife camera with external light and flash accessories:
1) Set the scene mode to Ext. Flash mode
2) Change the VIDEO White Balance setting to DAYLIGHT.
For other underwater camera brands:
1) Set the Scene mode to "Auto" or "Underwater" scene
mode, as recommended by the camera manufacturer.
2) You may also need to change the White Balance setting to
DAYLIGHT depending on the camera's underwater color
correction or if pictures/video turns out red.

When I take a picture in p setting it comes out with a blue cast. When taken i automatic, it comes out in correct colors


You didn't specify the model of your camera so I can't be too precise here.
Since it does appear to be a white balance issue, I'd say you've got the white balance set too warm. The camera compensates by adding blue to the scene and hence you get the blue tint. Either set the white balance to match the scene, or else set it to "Auto".

My PowerShot S30 has suddenly started to produce blue pictures


The white balance is set to something other than "auto WB".

Blue photos from a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 digital camera


Hello,
It might be an idea to check whether your "white balance" is not set to "fluorescent light" or "custom white balance". "Auto" is the safest option here. Incorrect white balance would cause blue/yellow cast on the picture. Otherwise the problem might be more severe (i.e. sensor failure-not common in TZ3 though).
If you're still getting blue cast with white balance set to auto, you can try to set "custom white balance" with white sheet of paper (refer to the manual for details) - this will override auto white balance.
Good luck!

The problem seems to be in the part of the process of taking picture when the camera scans the scene for brightness, to correct exposure. Bright regions turn greeny blue when taken. Low light images are usually unaffected. The problem can be testes by waving a dark object in front of the camera just before shooting. This implies that the good image result (if over exposed) is not a faulty CCD. It seems that the camera has trouble determining the colour balance or white brightness and tries to compensate by post processing.

I will look for a further solution.
