Default G1X tint

Does anyone notice a greenish tint to their images when shooting jpegs? It seems to be very prevalent and bothersome.

Make sure you are shooting at the proper white balance and viewing on a calibrated monitor.

I would try some shots at different white balance settings to see if the images come out better or worse. Quite often I get my images to show some warmth which is usually a setting of 5200 k.

You,ve probably already done it but I would check the in camera settings for saturation, luminance etc.

Have you got any samples of the problem, Jim

One of the things I learned today was that, on selecting AWB in the menu, you can tweak WB with the top wheel. There's even more adjustability if you then press MENU; you can then wander all over the colour space
