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

[ Edited ]

If you're going to shoot JPEGs only, it will be best to set the camera's white balance for your lighting conditions, as much as possible. Surprisingly to me, the Automatic White Balance seems to do a pretty good job under most shooting conditions.

 

If you end up getting this camera be sure to at least try shooting in RAW as often as possible. Also be sure to download and install Canon's free RAW processing software, DPP4, and then experiment a bit with adjusting white balance (as well as other settings) after the fact. You should be able to easily make some really impressive improvements to images like the blue-tinged photo above.

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.

"...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.

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!

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

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.
