Pink cast to all images now


It sounds like your white-balance is off on the magenta side of things. This could be caused by a number of factors, though I would explore your camera's white balance setting to make sure it's set for the right lighting situation. If changing your white balance setting fails, it may be a more serious issue with your sensor or other camera hardware, requiring a professional to repair it.

I have a Pentax x90 the problem I have is the reds appear pink have tried various settings but no change any advice would be appreciated.


The only setting that should make a difference would be white balance.
Are any of the other colors off?
Also, did you check the images just on the rear screen or also on a computer monitor or some other viewing method? It could just be the screen on the camera and the pictures are being captured correctly.

My samsung television (hd ready) has developed a problem where white has become tinged pink. Otherwise the television is fine


Check the color settings in the menu. It has white balance and color correction that can be adjusted by hand. If you don't know how to adjust the color balance, just reset the color settings or choose a preset color selection (Dynamic, Movie or Normal).

The camera is taking pictures that look pink. All the setting are correct.


which model of camera? Do you have white balance capabilities or custom color settings capabilities? All your settings may be correct, BUT if you have a custom white balance that you do not know about, all you need to do is turn it off.

Some images 'cool' some 'warm'


Hi there,

That issue is related to "white balance". Sounds like the camera is not measuring white balance correctly in order to determine the best setting for each shot, and is flipping between correct and incorrect settings, even in the same conditions!

I could go into detail here, but really it is much easier and perhaps better explained with images on many websites. Here is one example:

http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/white-balance.htm

As for a solution, well obviously the camera is not working as it should, but you could also try setting white balance manually if your camera allows it. The above site tutorial will give you an idea of how to do that and what setting to use.

The Fuji S2 sensor is noted for this red sensitivity. Here's a few different approaches to getting the shot with the S2, all of which require some experimentation.

1. Set the "Color" and "Tone" Function options to "ORG". Underexpose the shot. Progressively change the exposure compensation downward until when checking the histogram, the red channel does not show saturation at the high end. Advantages: this is the simplest approach to getting the picture. Disadvantages: the S2 already had a fairly limited dynamic range, and this will make things worse for the parts of the photo that are not red. For the surgical setting and use of a ringflash, this may not be much of a disadvantage, since a lot of the stuff of interest will be red, and ringflash illumination generally is of lower contrast than directional lighting.

2. Set the "Color" and "Tone" Function options to "ORG". Use a custom white balance. The idea here is to have the camera adjust the red channel sensitivity itself, and leave the blue and green channels alone. To do this, start with several sheets of white paper and a red or pink marker or highlighter. Scribble with the marker across a sheet, then use that to set a custom white balance. Take a test shot of the red stuff that has been problematic, and see whether the histogram for the red channel shows that there is no saturation at the high end. Repeat this with progressively more red or pink on each sheet used to set the custom white balance until you find the custom white balance that takes enough of the edge off the red channel response. Alternative: I just tried out making a gradient across an 8.5x11" sheet of paper going from white to about 30% red saturation. I can set more or less red adjustment in a custom white balance just by pointing the camera at different parts of the page. This seems to work OK for me. Advantage: can allow the full dynamic range of the sensor to be used. Disadvantages: the experimentation period is likely to take a while to get the best results, and the final images are unlikely to look completely natural.

3. Set the "Color" Function option to "B/W". Use a green or cyan filter on the lens to cut the amount that the red color channel contributes to the final image. Advantages: this is fairly simple as an approach. A similar post-processing technique can be applied to the photos that you already have, by nulling out the red channel contribution and desaturating the blue and green channels to produce a grayscale image. Disadvantages: you lose the color information entirely. Since much of what you want information about is colored red anyway, the organs are likely to appear quite dark when only taking the blue and green channel contributions to the image.

Optio S40 white objects are pink


Sounds as though the white balance is off, check your manual on how to alter the white balance to manual - then change it back to auto. It should fix it.

White balence


The EOS Rebel K2 is a film camera. White balance settings on digital cameras are an electronic 'adjustment' to the image sensor. In film cameras, the film is the image sensor. So white balance is dependent partially on the film you're using, but more often on the filters you add to the lens to correct for various lighting conditions and light sources.

White Balance


What is White Balance? The human eye captures white as white, red as red and blue as blue, regardless of whether you are outside under the sun or inside under incandescent lighting. Although this is something that we take for granted, the human eye actually adapts to correct the changes in color under different light sources. In reality, when light sources vary, colors caught as the reflection of those light sources also vary. For instance, films for cameras that use film are designed to capture the most appropriate coloring outside under the sun. Thus when you take pictures under incandescent or fluorescent lighting without using a flash, the colors in the resulting picture may seem strange. Digital camera and digital camcorders are equipped with a handy feature called "White Balance" that corrects the changes in color under different light sources, just like the human eye. One of the white balance settings, "Auto White Balance" (AWB) automatically adjusts to correct the changes in color under different light sources. White Balance and Coloring The White Balance feature on Canon digital cameras and camcorders is set to "Auto White Balance" at the time of purchase. If you prefer different coloring, if you want to adjust the coloring more in detail, or if you want to change the coloring on purpose, we recommend that you change the white balance setting.
