Canon 550D out of the box

Postby chrishull3 » 01 Aug 2010 11:30

The first film i did with the my 550D out of the box had the worst colours of any machine i have had in 15 years,blue and whites were fine but if they were not predominant the picture had an awful yellow look to it,it was not the AWB that was working but everything with yellow was overcooked drying grass/light tanned cliffs/peoples faces etc.If changing from standard to neutral setting and lowering the saturation a bit does not help happy i will not be,my HV30 colours are brilliant.

Did you have any chance, or time, to upload some sample video somewhere perhaps - like Vimeo or YouTube?

http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/forumdisplay.php?f=202 no but there is plenty on here, i got better colour today by using the neutral setting and lowering the saturation one notch, the only downside in neutral it is a soft picture so i heve to up the sharpness a bit now,fiddly or what these DSLRS.
