Question about Digital Cameras
Hi, I have a Fujifilm Finepix S5700 and recently when taking pictures, the image comes out in a sepia type tone. I have tried several different settings to rectify this but can't seem to resolve it. This happens particularly when taking photos indoors with the flash off but with sufficient indoor lighting (we are trying to take pictures of our newborn). The manual isn't very useful in that it assumes a certain level of understanding of camera terminology - I'm just an amateur. Any assistance would be gratefully received. Thanks JP
It sounds like the sepia tone is most likely caused by the tungsten lights in a regular room. Without flash, the only source of illumination indoors is artificial light (unless window light is dominant). There is a way to color balance the camera to approximate sunlight through the manual settings. Look in the menus for "white balance". You'll need to take the camera off of the fully automatic settings first. Move the cursor up or down while looking at the image and you will see the color shift. when you find a color balance you like for that particular room's lighting conditions, hit the OK to lock it in the activated position. Remember to go back to "auto" white balance for most shooting, especially outdoors, or everything will take on a wierd color cast.
