Each filter intensifies its color and darkens others, especially the color opposite on the color wheel. They're not of much use in color photography, unless you want weird color casts, but they come into their own in black&white photography. For example, a red filter intensifies red and darkens blue. It can make a sky look almost black, making clouds pop out. Similarly it can darken foliage. A green filter on the other hand will brighten foliage. If your camera can take black&white photos, try taking pictures of a red rose with green leaves with and without the filters. With one combination the rose and the leaves will be the same shade. With a red filter the rose will be bright against the dark leaves. With a green filter you'll get a dark rose with bright leaves. With digital photography you can achieve the same effect in postprocessing, but some times its easier to get the result in camera.
try to see if a filter is activated like magenta ...look in the menu if there is a reset settings feature...Usually it is in the main menu..one that reset it to the factory settings ..there can not be any other thing but something from the settings activated..(look for color filters) another thing to look for is if there are modes on it that change manually and can not be reset on digital level....I mean switches and stuff..or turning buttons for modes..try to put them in normal node..
without color correction software on your pc, you may get green tint from the flouresent flash, or use a "filter" over your lens.More expensive digital cams correct for this, back in the 35mm days, I had color correction filters I interchanged during shooting under other than daylight conditions,i.e., incadescent; flourescent;ect.
the red filter was not for having the camera in color mode, if you try switching it to black and white, then it will darken the sky and make clouds stand out, or in color mode if you are in a room with blueish lighting, the red filter can be used to adjust for that, but that can be adjusted by changing the white balance
You might have "color filter" settings. Turn the digital filters off. Here is what manual at p72 says.
"You can take pictures using digital filters. The filters consist of color filters such as red, blue and green, a soft filter that produces a fuzzy effect. Color filters Eight colors, black-and-white, sepia, red, pink, violet, blue, green and yellow, are provided for the color filters. When you select a color filter in the Digital Filter mode, the display on the LCD monitor is filtered with the selected color, and the pictures are taken in that color."
Things to consider regarding "blue skys"...
Time of day (Sunlight has different color spectrum mix & kelvin temp as the dawn passes on to night.
Atmospheric conditions - humidity, ozone, smoke/dust - all filter the colors
White Ballance - Do a manual WB before shooting each series.
Camera - different sensors are not created equal. One may play more to the blue end, another towards flesh tones. Lens systems, filters affect it too. Many say a good polorizer is one of the best investments for outdoor photos
Display media - Monitors need to be color balanced to accurately portray "what you shot". Likewise, color print labs do best with digital files tuned to their specific hardware profiles.
Yes, the Olympus E-20N has a 62mm filter thread size. You can attach a standard 62mm lens filter directly on the lens. Color filters would not have an effect on the camera due to the auto white balance.
