EOS RP - why blue tint using the adapter and EF 24 F2.8 mm IS USM lens?

Hi!


I demo'd at a photo store the EOS RP, which feels just great in my hands. I demo'd using an adapter and my EF 24 F2.8 mm IS USM lens.  One of my questions is:


Why did the photos come out with a blue tint (see photo - only change I made was to decrease the size)?

Color representation per image properties is sRGB.


I am hoping this would be an easy in-camera correction.

Thank you and all the best!

What was the white balance set to?  Perhaps it was on say Tungsten (3200K)?  For a bright sunny day, the color temp would be closer to 5500K.  Lower values would add more and more blue.

 

If you captured the image in RAW, you can change the white balance in post easily.  For example, in Adobe Lightroom, you could use the white balance eye-dropper tool and click on something that suppose to be white or gray.  e.g. the snow.   Or, manually adjust the color temperature slider.

Thank you!

I do not know what white balance was set to (I only demo'd it quickly and don't have it here) -- and it does not show up on my computer under image properties.

 

I appreciate the suggestions on editing in Lightroom!  That sounds like a great tool! I will likely use Lightroom too once I upgrade my PC -- just using a freeware Photoshop now and haven't used its full functionality.

 

All the best to you!

Lightroom is nice to have, but not mandatory.  The Canon DPP4 software can process RAW images, too.  The biggest advantage to using Adobe LR is that it can perform lens correction on third party lenses.

Thank you! That is great to know about Canon's Raw processing software!!! I am sure I will be using it and hoping to really enjoy it!

Are you really using CS2?  Did you really set the WB to manual?

I doubt CS2 will handle any new camera model correctly or at all.

Hi Ebiggs,
You asked :"Are you really using CS2? Did you really set the WB to manual?"

What is CS2? I used a freeware version of Photoshop to decrease the size of the image so I could post here - but no other adjustments were made.

I demo'd the camera at a camera shop so have no idea of the settings. I wanted to see how it felt and shot, knowing the quick demo would not give me all I would love to know about the camera, but yet better than no demo -- or so I think sometimes! At other times, not knowing nor using the full capabilities and features of the camera makes it harder to make a decision after having demo'd. 

 

I realize I have much to learn yet in DSLR photography. That factor makes it more difficult to review camera specs and make a decision based solely on those.

Thank you!
Annie

"...better than no demo -- or so I think sometimes! "

 

Not really! Can't be very good if it doesn't tell you or show you what the camera is capable of.  It is actually worse than buying blindly if it shows a poor photo.

 

The EXIF data from your sample indicates CS2 which is a very old version of PS.  Perhaps that is what the freeware version uses as a software. The WB indicated a setting of 'manual'. I don't understand that!

 

My thoughts is the adapter and lens are not the issue here and the settings on the camera is. I would ignore what you saw.

If you try again perhaps you might do a reset first.  WHo knows what somebody else might have set?

If you're not familiar with shooting with a DSLR and working with RAW files this may blow your mind.

 

Are you aware of all the EXIF data that's attached to digital image files? It provides a ton of shooting and editing information that's very helpful when you're trying to troubleshoot why an image maybe doesn't come out the way you expected.

 

When posting images here, or on similar sites, it's best to leave the EXIF info attached if possible.

 

Here's the EXIF data (somewhat edited to save space) from the first image you posted.

(Reason For Edit: This post obvoiusly needed a bit more trimming)

BurnUnit,

Thank you!

I have shot with a DSLR (Canon SL1) for 5 years but I have not used raw files and rarely had a need/desire to post-edit. I am "stepping up my game" now however!

I did/do look at the properties of the image in Windows Explorer (right-click image - Properties)

However, maybe because I am running on Windows XP (soon to upgrade!) I cannot view all the info you posted; I can only view ISO, aperture, exposure, camera, time...- that is, just the basics.

I look forward to viewing more when I upgrade, so thank you again and all the best!
