Undo White Balance Sony F707

I am in the scenario where I've just returned from the Grand Canyon and discovered that all my photography (with my old Sony F707) was done with the white balance key mistakenly depressed on the barrel. As a result most of the outdoor shots have a bluish-greenish tinge to them. I'm desperate for suggestions on how to correct this by post-processing the images and appreciate any advice and pointers ! Thanks in advance

Re: Undo White Balance Sony F707

If you have Photoshop: Layer>New adjustment Layer>Levels Use the middle eyedropper tool and click on something in your photo that should be gray/dark gray. Or: Use the white eyedropper (far right eye dropper) and click on something in the photo that you know is (or should be) white. You can try the gray first, then the white.

Whitebalanc; red cast over pictures


Greetings...

The red or orange cast comes from a warm light source since you have the auto white blance off...

Got to your menu and turn the auto white blance back on and then try taking the same picture under the same lighting and see if that corrects your problem...

Getting accurate color


1) Turn the Mode Dial to MANUAL MODE (Red camera icon with an "M") 2) Use the Arrow Down on the ENTER Button to select W/B (White Balance) 3) Press the center on the ENTER Button to select and adjust W/B (White Balance) 4) Use the Arrow Right (once), then Press and Hold the Arrow Down. Note: Continue to Press and Hold the Arrow Down. There will be a pause as you reach the bottom of the common preset conditions. Then a new "hidden" option will appear. 5) Once PRE SET appears, Press the center of the ENTER Button to select it. 6) A Special screen will appear. Point the camera direct at something WHITE, like a piece of paper, a white wall or a white shirt. Regardless of the lighting conditions, the camera will accept this "white object" as the new starting point "base of reference" or "True White". 7) Press the Shutter Button to program the new "True White" setting. 8) Press the center of the ENTER Button to accept and continue photography. These new settings will be saved as PRE SET True White conditions in Manual Photography Mode until you change the settings with another selection. This will not "go away" when the camera is turned off. These settings do not impact Auto Photography Mode.

F707 slow to "boot up"


I haven't had any such problems on mine. Have you tried swithching memory cards or re-formatting. With some other cameras such problems are attributable to the memory card.

Limited setting for White Balance.


Hi: So you bought the camera but didn't make a good choise :) Yeap, the "four only options" in the Sony F55 in the White Balance Function are what you said. You have to have that in attention when buying a Digital Camera. About the White Balance > Hold, the intention is to adjust the white balance acording to an object. After you select the option, to use it you just have to point the camera to the object, press half off the shutter button to focus, then you chose the angle and press the rest of the shutter button. On the other cameras those options improve the quality of the skin tones and colors of your subjects reduzing color temperature. Regards
