Question about Canon PowerShot A720 IS Digital Camera

2 Answers

Canon A720 IS

My photos have a pink cast to them- especially ones taken outside with the sky in the background.  I have turned MY COLORS to off and have reset all the defaults.  It happens in both Manual and AUTO.  White balance is also on Auto.  Any ideas?

Canon recommended that we send it in for warranty repair.  They fixed the issue and the camera is functioning normally again.

This is normal and not a malfunction.

It is caused by the bright light and will only be recorded in video mode.

Try to keep your camera aimed away from bright spots. There is nothing you can do to completely avoid the pink lines, but just be reassured that there is nothing wrong with your camera.

Hope this helps!

NOISY PICTURES One of the major difference between a consumer digital camera and a digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) is that the former produces images with a lot of noise when using high ISOs and long exposure times, and the latter is practically noise-free (though high ISO performance varies depending on camera manufacturer and model). Noise is apparent by the presence of color speckles where there should be none. For example, instead of a blue sky, you notice faint pink, purple and other color speckles amongst the otherwise blue sky.

Pink pictures


Make sure the white balance is set to "auto." Try going outside into shade and taking a picture of a white piece of paper, and see if that has a color cast.

If it does, follow the instructions in your camera's manual to set up a "custom white balance," and see if that helps. If the camera is newish, Canon might fix it under warranty, too.

Overall pink cast and pink stipe at top of all images taken.


Never had that camera, however, had the same problem -- the pink stripe and pink cast. Turns out the lens cover was slightly cracked and not opening and closing properly. Thus -- the pink cast.
