Question about Olympus Camedia C-765 Digital Camera

1 Answer

White balance problem

Many of my outdoor pictures frequently have a purple cast. I have adjusted the white balance but still have a problem. Is this inherent to the camera? Also does anyone know if there is any advantage to the proprietary XD cards? They are so much more expensive than others.

Re: White balance problem

My experience is that in geneeral terms white balance of the C765 is almost perfect. The earlier C740 did have a purple color in the white areas. The pictures need most a light push on trigger to first set up all correct. If you do so it should be nice colored. Olympus own xD card is required to make panorama pictures. Several pictures can then be set together within the PC software Cameras

When pictures are taken out side they come out pink


Your White Balance may need adjusting - try looking in the menu system for White Balance, then set it to AWB (Average White Balance) or an appropriate outdoor setting (Sunlight, Shade, Cloudy etc). The manual should help if you are stuck.

Green pictures


Assuming the camera is not faulty the most frequent reason for a green tint is the selection of the wrong white balance in the camera menu. The menu will contain "AWB", "daylight", sometimes represented by a stylised sun logo and indoor. If you use "daylight" for indoor photos the pictures will have a green cast. Select "AWB" for generally acceptable results. If the pictures have a green cast on outdoor pictures you have a problem

How do you find the white balance on this camera?


This camera does not have a customizable white balance. It does have some presets -- they are:

  • Auto (default)-automatically corrects white
balance. Ideal for general picture taking.

  • Daylight-for pictures in natural lighting.
  • Tungsten-corrects the orange cast of household
light bulbs. Ideal for indoor pictures under tungsten or
halogen lighting without flash.

  • Fluorescent-corrects the green cast of fluorescent
lighting. Ideal for indoor pictures under fluorescent
lighting without flash.

To access them, press the [Menu] button and look for White Balance -- the icon is a Sun and Light Bulb symbol.

My Canon G11 - most indoor pics have a strong yellow-orange hue. What can I do to correct this or is the camera broken?


Light from ordinary light bulbs has a strong yellow-orange cast, which our eyes tend to adjust for without thought. Check the white balance setting on your camera. This is to adjust the camera for the color of the light, to try to make white come out white, hence the name "white balance." Set the white balance to incandescent (light-bulb icon) for indoor shooting under light bulbs, or to automatic to let the camera take its best attempt.

Try experimenting with the white balance setting. Taking pictures in bright sunlight with the incandescent setting will give your pictures a very blue cast, making things look a little colder. There are other settings, such as flourescent.

TAKING NIGHT SUNSET PICTURES

What is and how do i adjust the white balnceon my fujitsu S550 digital camers?


Adjustment is in the menu screen, you shouldn't have to go very deep as it is a frequently adjusted setting.
White Balance is how the camera interprets white depending on ambient lighting. Have you ever noticed how when you are taking pictures inside at night and all of the light comes from lamps and the flash that your pictures have a yellow look? Take a picture under flourescent lamps and the pictures look different as well? How about outside? Best true color rendition on the picture taken outside, but different than the others.
White balance is a way for the photographer to adjust the tone of the picture to accurately reproduce the true colors seen in real life in the picture. Most cameras have an automatic white balance and they usually work fairly well. But for the best results, set it manually. Your whites will be white and skin tones appear accurate.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

Pictures have cyan color cast


Check your "white balance" (WB) setting.Try setting to "auto" and see if you get the same results shooting outdoors on a sunny day. If you do, the camera is in need of repair, if you do not, you need to buy a book on digital photography to supplement your manual.

AWB problem on 555


I noted that situation, but was my fault because i've been using Bulb or tungsten in outdoor pictures...!!! AWB works fine most of the cases except in some indoors where i have to use manual WB. Please be aware that if you have enough indoor light could be a good idea to disable the flash, try and error......

White balance problem


There are two white balance adjustments in the Picture Menu. Check the user's manual and see which is best for you. Remember if you have "All Reset" set to Yes (Setup Menu). The white balance will reset to Auto each time you turn-on the camera. ............... XD media cards are the invention of Olympus and Fujifilm. Just their way of getting a piece of the pie. Just like Sony and the memory stick.
