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



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!



Excellent advice on shooting RAW above.  Personally, I capture both RAW and JPEG (and then across two cards).  This gives you an instant backup.


For those cameras with a single card slot, should the RAW file get corrupt, you have the JPEG as its backup.


Having said all that, knock on wood, I haven't experienced any corruption yet.


Finally, there are specific scenarios where only shooting JPEG is proper.  But for the most part, go for RAW.


Edit: Forgot to add... I rarely use AWB (Auto White Balance), but when I did play around with it, it did do a decent job.  If I think about what I do, it's about an equal split amongst using the presents (e.g. Flash, Tungsten, Shade), dialing in an exact Kelvin value, or setting up a custom white balance.


Camera: EOS 5D IV, EF 50mm f/1.2L, EF 135mm f/2L
Lighting: Profoto Lights & Modifiers

"...the Automatic White Balance seems to do a pretty good job under most shooting conditions."


I agree!  I have not moved the WB setting off of Average WB for a very long, long time.  Of course I shoot Raw exclusively.  In my world I see no valid reason to ever shoot jpg anymore. The conversion is so seamless.

Ebiggs, that is so good to know it is seamless 🙂 Thank you!

Thank you!
I have not shot raw yet, but the replies to this thread have me excited about it! I am glad to hear working with raw is not difficult!
All the best!

Cool post!
