My suggestion? -- Anytime you change light conditions with this non-point-and-shoot camera you should manually color temp balance for best color accuracy. The 'auto' setting can be fooled by certain types of lighting. In the viewfinder or screen view in whatever mode you shoot in you'll see one of 3 color temp options shown, or a blank area if you are on auto balance. I consistently choose the 'one push' option (symbol looks like 2 inverted triangles under a rectangle) using the rearmost of the 3 vertical buttons on the left side of the lens. Then while pointing the camera at the image push the little button just under that rearmost button. This will cause the symbol in the viewfinder to flash a few times and then go steady as it locks on to the proper white balance. Works 99% of the time.

Greetings...

The red or orange cast comes from a warm light source since you have the auto white blance off...

Got to your menu and turn the auto white blance back on and then try taking the same picture under the same lighting and see if that corrects your problem...

    Greetings... sorry, your original note stated whitebalance is off...



    Take a plain sheet of white use that sheet under the lighting condition you are trying to take a picture in... turn the balance off and do a 'whitebalance' under the lighting and then take a picture and see if that clears up your problem...



    The other option is to find the reset control or button and reset the camera back to factory specs. That has a way of getting rid of problems also...



    I have been shooting for over 40 years and whitebalance can be a problem with some camera...



    Let me know if this helps... if not there are some other tricks to try...

Green pictures


Assuming the camera is not faulty the most frequent reason for a green tint is the selection of the wrong white balance in the camera menu. The menu will contain "AWB", "daylight", sometimes represented by a stylised sun logo and indoor. If you use "daylight" for indoor photos the pictures will have a green cast. Select "AWB" for generally acceptable results. If the pictures have a green cast on outdoor pictures you have a problem

When I take a photo the display screen flashes


This is a normal phoneme. The camera wants to show you where the picture is overblown. In these parts you can't see any details, because in JPG it will show it one colour. Most of the time this will be complete white.
When you are shooting in RAW (NEF in your Nikon) most of the time you still get detail, when you work in one of the RAW editors, like Photoshop, DxO and other picture edtors.

When I take a picture it looks fine on the screen. When I then review my pictures there are red lines going through the picture.


Hi,


The problem is due to CCD/CMOS (the chip that physically captures light and creates the digital image) has broken. If this is the case , a repair would cost approximately $80-$130. This is the most common problem for a camera that takes blank/lines in images but where the menu display functions and old photo's display normally.Please confirm that these stripes are normally behind the menu's. Check to see if the new images are downloaded correctly and if the video function works normally. If this does not work, it supports the idea that the chip has gone.Take it to a repair,if the CCD has to be replaced then a new or refurbished camera would cost only slightly more.


Thank you !!

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!

LCD show purple or violet cast on white areas when using auto mode


Have you tried viewing the photos on a computer or printing them? There should also be parts of the menu/setting displays that would be white. The text on the image info should be in white.
If you are getting white, it would suggest your whitebalance isn't set correctly. If everything has a purple tint to it, check your LCD display settings, otherwise it may be the screen is failing.

Pictures have colour cast


Sorry if this sounds obvious, but this might rather have to do with White Balance. Rather than relying on AutoWhiteBalance, try setting it to "cloudy" or "shade", this may help the blue cast.
