I have a two-year old PowerShort G7. Somewhat randomly, some of my images have exaggerated red tones. Instead of 'sepia,' my images have a 'pink' emphasis to them. But then, some images appear natural and completely unaffected. Any clues what might be going wrong?

I had a G9, a G10, and now a G11...all with the same problem. I am very frustrated with this and am ready to switch back to Sony because I cannot find a solution. I use the AUTO and the P Modes almost exclusively, so it can't be operator error. I even sent my G10 back to Canon...they did something to it, but it did nothing. One or every five photos come out with a pastel tint to flesh tones...with and without the flash...and even in the brightness of daylight. I am going to post a new thread and ask others...so stay tuned!

tpieples, could you post a few examples? This is a rather old thread, so the OP may not respond as this was his first and only posting on this forum.

Here are a couple of shots taken just this past weekend.
The details on my G11 are showing:
#1: AUTO; 1/60; ISO 500; F4.0; +/- 1/3; AWB; iContrast
#2: AUTO; 1/15; ISO 800; F2.8; +/- 0; AWB
I would appreciate whatever you can see I am doing wrong.
Thank you very much for your willingness to help!

On the basis of the images posted, I'd suggest the obvious - the temperature of a relatively feeble flash competing with overall tungsten lighting (fairly accurate rendition in the foreground, warming up as distance increases). And AWB making the best of a bad job.

ETA - Mt son's G7 and my G10 are both crazily 'warm' using AWB in tungsten light. Custom WB helps in these circumstances. Somewhat.

I'd agree with xhack, my G9 does the same indoor or under some difficult lighting conditions. Not in daylight though.

It may be worth capturing raw and adjusting temp in camera raw if that is available to you, just to prove it to yourself, you should see the skin tones return to near normal as you move the slider.

Manually setting WB in camera should help as xhack suggested.

It's likely just the evils of artificial light.



I guess now I've turned to Sony I am an Alpha-Male. Did have a blast with Canon though : )
