Question about Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm Lens

1 Answer

Pictures have colour cast

Within the last few days my camera has produced pictures with a blue cast. I thought that it might have something to do with taking pictures in very cold conditions on the moors. However I went up again recently and took a few more and they seem to have a red cast! Can anyone offer an explaination please?

Sorry if this sounds obvious, but this might rather have to do with White Balance. Rather than relying on AutoWhiteBalance, try setting it to "cloudy" or "shade", this may help the blue cast.

Digital camera

The manual says the following about colour cast:

  1. Best results in most environments can normally be obtained with the [WB AUTO] setting, but for some subjects, you should try experimenting with different settings. (This is especially true for sunshade under a clear sky, mixed natural and artificial light settings, and so on.)

And although the WB settings are very limited I think this is the only option you have. Make sure you don't use to strong exposure compensation all the time.
The colour compensation you wish, are only found in high end cameras. Not even in all DSLR or system cameras.
If the colour cast is too strong, perhaps the manufacturer can help?

The pictures all have a blue cast to them, with flash or outdoors.

You have the colour balance set to "indoor" or "tungsten". The camera is compensating for the yellowish cast that you get from indoor lighting. You should set the colour balance to "auto" and the camera will cope with all lighting situations automatically.

My indoor portrait pictures with my Nikon coolpix L110 are yellow in tone. Why? How can I avoid this problem? The camera does not request flash.

Artificial light is a different colour than daylight. Our eyes compensate, so we don't notice it much. Digital cameras can compensate too, but whether they do or not depends on the settings. The setting you want to investigate is colour balance. If this is set to daylight, it will give an orange cast to pictures taken in tungsten lighting, and a greenish cast to pictures taken in fluorescent light. If it is set to artificial light, pictures taken in daylight will have a bluish cast. The best setting for most people is Auto. That will let your camera decide, and usually it will get it about right.

All pictures show as blue

Artificial light is a different colour than daylight. Our eyes compensate, so we don't notice it much. Most digital cameras can compensate too, but whether they do or not depends on the settings. The setting you want to investigate is color balance. If this is set to daylight, it will give an orange cast to pictures taken in tungsten lighting, and a greenish cast to pictures taken in flourescent light. If it is set to artificial light, pictures taken in daylight will have a bluish cast. The best setting for most people is Auto, if your camera has it. That will let your camera decide, and usually it will get it about right.

My PowerShot S30 has suddenly started to produce blue pictures

The white balance is set to something other than "auto WB".
