Having problems with your Canon EOS-10D Digital Camera ?

Magenta cast For many months now I have been shooting products and artwork with a Canon 10D and 2 white lighting strobes with larg silver lined soft boxes.The problem I'm having is with a magenta color cast over the entire picture especially if I shoot red subject material.I have tried vast changes in parameters and white balance and nothing I do with camera settings seems to help, I must always resort to post processing in PHOTOSHOP CS. Could this be a 10D issue or ME?


Answers :

Mostly it is probably you.\015\012\015\0121.) Use a Gretag-Macbeth Mini Color Checker in the first frame of your lighting set up (every time you change anything about your setup: move the lights ,change the softboxes, lower or raise the power settings. use the Mini-color checker or the Gretag-Macbeth DC Color Checker -- nott he regular Color Checker\015\012\015\0122.) As suggested: shoot RAW, and learn how to use the Camera Raw function in PsCS to do a a decent white balance (use the patch next to, or the one two patches down, from the white square -not the white square for your white balance. Then use that setting for all of the images made with that set up.
I guess it could be several things; perhaps the color temperature of your lights is the culprit. At any rate, it shouldn't be too difficult to correct - here are two suggestions: 1) Shoot in RAW mode so that you can fine-tune color balance after the fact and don't have to get it right in-camera. 2) Shoot a black/white/grey card in the same lighting as your subject. (all three "colors" on the same card) You can then use the eyedropper tool in either curves or levels to set the black and white points, and the grey eyedropper tool (when clicked on the grey in your shot) should get rid of any color cast, magenta or otherwise. Good luck!

White Screen Hi Just like JayJay reported on 26 Jul 2006, my S5000 went white screen yesterday after previously behaving ok. I've tried all modes from AF to Manual. Like JJ I can view previous frames which view OK. I've changed batteries, tried to balance exposure. In Appature mode the reading is 2000 f8 and will not vary. Hopefully someone out there can offer a solution ? lenk

I have a Canon Rebel XSI. Lately, when I try to turn it on, nothing happens. I know there's a charged battery -- two, actually, because there's a battery grip. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. And sometimes the white balance button will flash repeatedly, even when the power is set to off. I've tried it without a lens. I've tried it without the grip. I've cleaned the gold contacts around the lenses and batteries. Any help would be appreciated.

I have a Fuji S1000FP and for the most part it takes great photos EXCEPT when I take pictures into the sun then my photos are either white or black and no image. I will admit I just want a point and shoot camera because I don't understand shutter speed and such. However, I have attempted to change the shutter speeds and still nothing. I have tried all the pre settings as well. (This camera claims to be one of the better outdoor cameras. ) Can anyone offer words of wisdom on this. Ruth

I've had my Olympus FE-340 for 3 years, and I've never had any problems with it before. Now, whenever I try to zoom in, the camera takes white pictures or pictures with streaks in them. I've tried reseting the camera, changing the battery, changing the picture card, switching settings, and turning the flash on and off. Is there any way to fix the white/streaky pictures? Or, does this mean that my camera will no longer work when I try to zoom in?
