Question about Nikon D300 Digital Camera with 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR DX Lens
Here are the possible causes and the solutions for each:
Cause 1: The most common cause of the tint in the images is White Balance. It is possible that you have set the wrong White Balance. Since you are getting a blue tint, you might have set the white balance to 'Incandescent' (Tungsten) or 'Flash'. Changing the white balance to Auto. Most White Balance problems get eliminated by this. For this, press WB on the mode dial and use the command dial to change the values.
Cause 2: The unwanted casts could also be due to the in-camera processing. To check this, Select 'Set Picture Controls' from the Shooting menu. From the four options, select one that gives the minimum processing-- that is, either Neutral (which gives minimal processing) or Standard (It gives slight enhancements, but the tones will be balanced).
Cause 3: It is also possible that the White Balance of your camera has been tweaked. So if the above steps do not solve the issue, try tweaking the white balance to your liking. For this, press WB and use the sub command dial (the dial in front of the camera near the Shutter Release button). Check the result each time you change the value until you are satisfied with the result. As a guide, the ideal values of different settings are: Daylight (direct sunlight): 5200; Incandescent: 3000; Flash: 5400; Cloudy: 6000; Shade: 8000 etc...
