Question about Canon EOS-5D Digital Camera
I recently took some sports day photos in changeable weather (bright sun then cloud) but the greens were far too green and the whole picture looked washed out. I only use L lenses 70-200 F2.8 and the 24-105 F4 the latter lens made everything look like a fisheye effect (another issue!)
On the menu settings which is the best option to have it set up to, to make it look natural?
Also, how do you change the sharpness in camera?
This all depends on what format you are shooting. For RAW this does not matter as you will be able to change the white balance setting on the computer under your programs white balance settings as the main thing.
For shooting in .jpg probably a good general setting should be cloudy for outdoors. Gives a warmer picture. and for other people the AWB (Auto White Balance) may work fine. Again it depends really on your taste.
If the images are washed out it could be you are shooting in RAW, as this format does not alter any info and is stored on the card as it was taken. .jpg does process the image adding saturation, sharpness etc.
A quick fix for some has been to use the settings under 'Picture Style' and changing thes to suit the subject. Faithful will record things as is and not apply and adjustments and will look a little washed out.
Shooting in RAW gives you complete control over your image but does mean you need to process the shots later on you computer to get them as you saw them.
You are getting the fish Eye effect as on the 24-105 as you are using this on the 24mm end of the Zoom. (Wider end). Try moving it up through to 105.
Hope this helps
