Re: Canon EOS 6D has problem with yellow tint lcd

I try to use my friend's iphone or ipad to take one picture by using EOS camera Remote or EOS camera Connect app to set K temperature or use my experience when five months using it, it maybe yellow than real temperature about 300-400 K temperature so you can set down 300-400 K

Re: Canon EOS 6D has problem with yellow tint lcd

I think Canon 6D yellow tint issue happened with Serial start with number 3 (Ex:3XXXXXXXXX), because i have compared with Serial start with number 0,1,2, it's normal (monitor screen is more cyan than serial 3)

Re: Canon EOS 6D has problem with yellow tint lcd

Ah !

Thank you Pcstar.

So it's an official knowed problem !

I have work with Canon body for long time ! And have work with other body, and other brand.

10D , 20D, 7D , 5D, 5Dm3, 6D .... I can tell you that this yellow tint is the first time I see that on a Canon body !  Is not a simple small mistake for me. I don't ask the screen to be perfect, but there, it's worst than a cheap no-calibreted cell-phone (for the fidelity of the color I mean). You need at least a screen that show you if you are in good WB balance, and, most of all, if you are well exposed or not.

So If you tell me it's on all the 3XXXXXXXX serie .... Well , it's a shame ! I would have never buy that body if I had know that before...

Well , I have just check mine, it's a 2XXXXXXXXXXX serie ....

You can set your camera's custom white balance with a grey card before you begin shooting video. See page 121 of the 6D instruction manual.

The above is about custom white balance using a gray card which is different than manual white balance which involves setting the color temperture in Kelvin.

And has nothing to do with calibrating the image on the LCD

Set your in camera WB to Auto.  Turn off Automatic Lighting.  Use Standard PictureStyle.  Record your images as RAW.  You can make all of those prevous adjustments in post-processing, provided you record your images in RAW format.
