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

Yes, monitor is calibrated. I realize this is unscientific but you can clearly see the yellow tint compared to my monitor. It's not brightness. It's not white balance. I uploaded them all the same because people requested it. I can assure you, my 5d MKII did not have this issue. I suppose I'd need to take a photo of the card in my 6D and then my card with the same photo in another camera under the same conditions but I don't have a spare body to do that with. Believe me - it's clearly got a really yellow tint to it.

If you really think there is something wrong with it, then stop wasting time in the forums and let Canon Service take a look at it.  I'm not convinced, BTW.   Most unscientific.

Yeah, that's what's frustrating - this unwavering approval of Canon's ability to not ever mess up that seems to exist in this thread.

Where did you get that idea?  I told you to send it in for repairs.  I just think your expectations are too high for a 3" LCD.

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

From many of the replies before yours also. So it's unrealistic to expect an LCD to not have a clear yellow tint? Funny, my last three cameras made me think otherwise.

I hear an echo.  "Send your camera in for inspection and repairs."  There that echo goes again.

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

It's like two image under

My friend has a 6D and my 6D more yellow tint, it may be simple if the screen is true of color because i use for recording clip, sometime may not use greycard, it's more difficult

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

You my friend have the patience of a saint. This is why I hate camera forums. I seen one thread about the vertical banding noise on the 5D series cameras and everyone pretends they can't see it or says you're just not taking photos correctly. Baffling.

I have five Canon DSLRs and my 6D (serial starting with 3) has this issue too.
I am sending my camera in to a company to have the hot mirror removed and was googling to see if anyone ever found a fix for this to see if the company could do anything about it while the camera is in their possesion. Then I read this incredibly frustrating thread. I have no idea how you endured posting after posting of how to set white balance without losing it.

My camera is coincidentally the first time I'd ever bought "Grey Market" so I never tried getting it fixed. But I agree it's a very frustrating problem looking at the screen and having the colors be "off" like they are on the affected models.
