EOS R6 Mark II taking green photos


R6 Mark II- Weird stuff going on

First off, I am just a sports mom who loves to capture my kids and their teammates.

The first 2 attached photos are examples of what happens towards the later part part of games.  Not always, but always in the most opportune moment!  The first example was taken at night.  Other shots come out fine and then it is as if gremlins take over! The 3rd is just an example of the lighting on the 2nd- it was taken within minutes of the green. 

I am using EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II with R adapter.

Any thoughts to what's going on?

Thank you so much!





Is the camera always producing this problem. It could easily be a bad SD Card causing this problem. Check to see if this also happens when the camera is in live view or through the EVF.

I cannot say I know what's going on, but just to throw out a couple of ideas:

1) It looks for all the world like you have a neutral density filter on the front of your lens. Do you have an ND filter mounted?

2) Have you tried changing your White Balance when this starts happening?

3) You say this starts happening towards the end of the game. It's possible that this could be a sign of overheating. When this starts happening, does your camera feel warm? Try turning it off and let it cool down for a while, or turn it off in the middle of the game for a while so you are not shooting for hours at a time in one long continuous stretch.

4) if you shoot in RAW, you can go in later and remove the green tint with your editing software.

Those are just a few ideas, but like I said, they're just guesses.
